Details about Level of development (LOD) in BIM

Level of development (LOD) means a supposition with different definitions and executions. The level of development characterizes the content and reliability of BIM components at various phases or milestones. The “content” signifies geometric information, structured data and linked documentation.

The reliability signifies what has been utilized and to what extent the downstream users of the information can rely on the precision and quality of that content.

LOD is categorized as follow :-

LOD 100 – Concept Design

3D model of the building is formed to demonstrate the information on basic level. As a result only conceptual model can be produced in this phase. Several parameters ranging from area, height, volume, location and orientation are characterized.

LOD 200 – Schematic Design

General model where components are modeled with guess quantities, size, shape, location and orientation. Non-geometric information can also be added to the components of the model.

LOD 300 – Detailed Design

Exact modeling and shop drawing where components are characterized with certain assemblies, proper quantity, size, shape, location and orientation. Here, non-geometric information can also be added to the components of the model.

LOD 350 – Construction Document

It comprises of model detail and component which demonstrate how building components interacts with several systems as well as other building components with graphics and written definitions.

LOD 400 – Fabrication & Assembly

The components of the model are modeled according to certain assemblies with complete fabrication, assembly, and detailing information other than exact quantity, size, shape, location and orientation. Non-geometric information to the model components should also be added.

LOD 500 – As-built

The components are modeled similar to constructed assemblies for maintenance and operation. Other than actual and accurate in size, shape, location, quantity and orientation, non-geometric information is also added to the components of the model.

Some top most cad program for designers

AutoCAD is a useful program that comprises of a wide array of features. It is considered as a multipurpose tool for several industries – specificlly graphic design, engineering, architecture, and project management, among others.

DraftSight (Free): DraftSight is a CAD platform with all the necessary tools to generate technical 2D drawings. It facilitates perfect revisions as the components of designs are normally accumulated in layers.

It contains a simplified interface for easy learning. It facilitates the user to produce G-Code in the program directly as well as save and open DWG and DXF files, although it does not run LSIP routines and offers no express tools.

To download, click on the following link

SolidWorks: SolidWorks stands for a solid modeling CAD and CAE (computer-aided Engineering) 3D tool. It is useful for various industries like aerospace, shipbuilding, automotive, architecture, medical and energy sector, and industrial equipment.

To download, click on the following link

FreeCAD (Free): FreeCAD belongs to a parametric CAD program that can create the design of any object of almost any size in 3D. As FreeCAD is developed around parametric modeling, the program empowers a designer to get back into a model’s history and alter or modify the dimensions.

To download, click on the following link

BricsCAD: In BricsCAD, there are some exciting features in both 2D drawing and 3D modeling. It has equivalent interface as AutoCAD (the 2008 version) but BricsCAD’s ribbon is a bit confusing. BricsCAD supports numerous of third-party applications.

BricsCAD is more inexpensive and comes with three editions: Classic, Pro, and Platinum. The Platinum edition is enriched with various features (like 3D compare, BIM, and Sheet metal tools)

BricsCAD identifies XREFS and contains has a robust rendering engine, integrates with the cloud, and is customizable.

How to design a 3D house in AutoCAD

In this exclusive AutoCAD tutorial, you will learn how to use AutoCAD to make a complete 3D house from 2D plan.

The different types of useful AutoCAD commands are used in this tutorial which are given below :-

UN (unit command) – It manages the accuracy and display formats toward coordinates, distances and angles.

DIM (dimension style manager) – It makes several dimensions and types of dimensions with a single command. It is possible to select objects or points on objects to dimension, and then click to set the dimension line.

Rectang (create a rectangle) – It is used to form a rectangular polyline from given rectangle parameters (length, width, rotation) and type of corners (fillet, chamfer, or square).

PLINE (select poly line tool) – It is applied to produce a 2D polyline, a single object that is made of line and arc segments.

LINE (to draw line) – It is utilized to make a wide array of adjacent line segments. Every segment belongs to a line object that is editable independently.

OFFSET – It is applied to create parallel or concentric copies of lines, polylines, circles, arcs, or splines).

TRIM (modify existing objects) – It is applied to trim objects to comply with the edges of other objects.

MI (mirror objects) – It is applied to generate a mirrored copy of a selected object.

COPY (to copy any object) – It is used to copy objects to a specific distance in a specified direction.

STRETCH – It is employed to stretch objects passed by a selection window or polygon. STRETCH only moves the vertices and endpoints located inside the crossing selection.

ROTATE – It is used to rotate selected objects around a base point to an absolute angle.

MOVE – It allows to move objects to a specified distance in a specified direction. The objects are moved accurately with coordinates, grid snaps, object snaps, and other tools .
