The construction industry is merging with information technology more and more every day, and BIM (Building Information Modeling) is the result and future. If your company wants to embark on the BIM train, you should choose carefully which BIM software to use. So, today we will talk about the best 10 BIM applications of 2021.
Autodesk is a formidable name in the construction industry because of this product. Ancient enough to sprout myths about itself, AutoCAD is the number one 3D modeling and 2D drafting software known to people. It started as a purely drafting application, and then evolved into a Virtual Design and Construction giant.
From Autodesk again, Revit is a pure BIM application that is presently the biggest name in the AEC consortium. It has been with us since the beginning of the century.
Revit is exceptional in architectural planning and documentation due to its ability to hold limitless amounts of details inside the drawings, and its parametric modeling approach.
SketchUp has been a dear to anyone who ever tried their hand at 3D modeling. Initially cheap, it still remains the most affordable design and modeling solution. While not really BIM per se, there are plenty of powerful plugins for SketchUp that can turn it into a real BIM application.
A sister application, Trimble Connect, from SketchUp’s owner Trimble, is mostly used for the connectivity requirements of BIM.
