New InfraWorks update with better BIM and GIS workflows

Autodesk Connector for ArcGIS is first in-product competence from joint venture among Esri and Autodesk. More advance features are included in InfraWorks update.

Autodesk’s alliance with Esri adds new wings in the latest Autodesk InfraWorks software update. The most exciting feature is that there exists a new Autodesk Connector for ArcGIS.

The objective of Autodesk is to make BIM + GIS workflows superior across the software pipelines of different infrastructure design and engineering professionals. The connector is utilized to develop an InfraWorks model directly from GIS data to be published to Esri’s ArcGIS Online.

All the data in GIS from Esri’s ArcGIS comes into InfraWorks. This information flow among these two most recognized apps signify that when the Esri-based GIS data is updated the InfraWorks is also updated and restored.

The latest update to InfraWorks comprises of other new features and enhancements. It becomes easier to edit vertical curve values directly in the Curves Properties panel. There exists Delayed Model Regeneration to facilitate the designers to proceed on and not waiting for entire model to be refreshed each time while creating small modifications to the model, similar to moving a curb.

Opportunities for Surveyors:

InfraWorks views can be easily availed through web and mobile devices but the feature now comprises of a bookmarks and detailed model data view. Finally, BIM 360 users will be able to view account and project name data evidently while receiving projects in several and different BIM 360 accounts. It is a BIM 360 upgrading that carries over to superior workflows for InfraWorks.

Benefits of BIM for Surveyors throughout retrofitting of a construction works

The prime responsibility of a surveyor is to deal with several measurements, values, costs, schedules dimensions and demarcations which are gathered from trustworthy and precise sources of data. BIM facilitates the surveyors to avail and evaluate all this data in form of geometries, numerals, and essential foot notes [with annotations to building object and modeled elements] for clear-cut information.

As-built BIM models allow in visualizing the data, finally authorizing surveyors to obtain detail information as well as insights. This insight allows survey professionals to perform proper analysis with the purpose of giving suggestions to architects and contractors for the sake of occupants and all the stakeholders who are associated with the building design and development projects.

When it is required to arrange the BIM models in as-built conditions of the building, the construction works or the infrastructure are analyzed prior to scanning and redesigning the project.

By maintaining exact level of detailing of designs in BIM, the project is expanded and a development stage is reflected for construction management related decisions. Issues associated with constructability, probable clashes, challenges in building up a wall or taking off one, time and cost, etc. are examined, risks are computed and mistakes are amended in the initial phase by a team collaboration among the engineers and the surveyors.

Opportunities for Surveyors:

• BIM for surveyors enhances collaboration and co-ordinations between multi-disciplinary teams
• BIM facilitates the surveyors to work out embodied CO2 in buildings and recommend remedies
• BIM allows the surveyor to quickly finish the work cost-effectively.
• Produce accessible synchronized information concerning project performance & constant maintenance of the property
• Surveyors can make best use of their work profile with BIM
• Ability to make proper decision for spatial planning, material orders, and QTOs – in case of retrofitting

With BIM, the surveyors get the ability to accomplish their jobs efficiently & with superior collaborative input. BIM for surveyors is rightly crucial whether it is a project of new construction works or retrofitting a really elderly one.

The role of BIM Execution Plan (BEP) for MEP firms

With advancement of BIM, the demand for BIM Execution or Implementation Plan is also increased. BEP facilitates every project stakeholder to get updated with the project. Now MEP firms extensively implement BEP for improved BIM Level 2 execution.

BEP becomes part and parcel for construction projects specifically large and complicated projects like BIM. The basic BEP plan is utilized to make sure that all the stakeholders, architectural, structural and MEP professionals remain on the equivalent page and proceed at the same predefined pace retaining the clear view in focus.

So, BEP in its nature signifies consulting insights on how BIM will be enforced across the project for each professional ranging from designer, MEP engineer, MEP consultant, or a MEP contractor as well as inter-disciplinary design teams and engineers.

How does BEP impact MEP firms?

Specifically MEP firms reap the most benefits from BEP on BIM coordination. Any MEP firm that deals with a complicated construction project plays a significant role across phases to remain organized. With a BIM implementation plan or a BIM consulting partner BEP is formulated easily to make sure that each stakeholder recognizes their part and can adopt the activities consequently and make out what should be anticipated from other disciplines.

• BEP Documents: The information provided in BEP documents comprise of a plan for BIM adoption, how the data in BIM files are generated, controlled, documented and distributed across the disciplines. When Mep Firms can access such information sets, their teams will to able to undertake decisions for fabrication, delivery at site and installation.

• Project Guide: Aside, when major deliverables and a guide to project milestones are evidently defined, MEP engineers and teams who participate in the project at later stages with regards to other design engineers, BEP plays a very important role in adopting up to date decisions.

• BEP for construction projects: BEP for the construction projects also comprise of practical working method with the details of filenames, abbreviations and acronyms, annotations, symbols in mark-up drawings (if any) and lots other used in the BIM model. The detailed plans in BEP with a guide simplify the task of MEP teams; particularly in formulating MEP coordination drawings and finalizing MEP layout.

Advantages of BEP to MEP firms: When BEP are designed with complete documents to integrate various teams and collaborate to accomplish the project in a systematic and phased manner. BEP provides benefits to MEP teams in the following ways.

• Superior communication and management
• Improved collaboration as per standards
• Reduce reworks
• Saving of time and costs

Details of AutoCAD coordinates

There are 3 types of AutoCAD coordinates system which are given below :-

ABSOLUTE COORDINATES
RELAVIE COORDINATES
POLAR COORDINATES

ABSOLUTE COORDINATES

All input points are mentioned in your drawing with standard Cartesian coordinates x and y.

With the use of absolute coordinate, points are inputted by typing x, y (Enter).

RELATIVE COORDINATES

As soon as the first point is inputted, your next points will be inputted by indicating the next coordinate compare/relative from the first points. The relative coordinate is commenced with the symbol “@” to inform AutoCAD that it is a relative coordinate. With relative coordinate, the points are inputted by typing @x,y (Enter).

POLAR COORDINATES: Polar coordinates are applied when it is required to draw the next points at specify angle. Polar coordinates system in AutoCAD indicates distance length at which angle. With polar coordinate, points are inputted by typing @distance < angle (Enter).
