The Integration of Building Information Modeling data & City Models using Geo-BIM

Building Information Modeling data integrates into 3D city models using commercial and open-source tools. Integration between Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) and City-GML requires converting information between different models. It is also challenging to transform geometries from solid models. BIMs use for solid representations, while city models use for boundary representations.

Increasing numbers of cities use 3D city models for urban planning visualization and simulation. Often, the models include planned buildings as well. The 3D city model of the city can populate with BIM models of planned buildings.

What is Geo-BIM?

In 2019, a Geo-BIM benchmark examined interoperability in the Geo-BIM domain, which allowed Building Information Modeling to integrate with city models. City-GML and IFC tools evaluate tools for converting data. Four datasets evaluated ETL scripts and several software tools. IFC files are modeled differently, inconsistently, as can be seen by the elements. It may be challenging to develop generic programs that can convert IFC data into City-GML models because of this. As a result, IFC elements of the benchmark were translated into generic City-GML objects, inspected, and modified in practice.

The architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) domain must reach a consensus on standards and guidelines concerning how IFC models should be modeled. Several countries have already undertaken such work. Standardization of city models is also necessary. As a concept document, City-GML 3.0 is slated for approval in September 2021. Interoperability with IFC improved through the implementation of some concepts.

Top 8 Best Practices for Creating Revit Families

Creating custom Revit families are one of the most important tasks in a firm that uses Revit extensively. Whether you are in charge of creating them in-house, or whether you are publishing them online changing the Revit landscape ? you will quickly see that there are some tricks to this matter. And for that, today, we will talk about top 8 best practices for creating Revit families.

1. Keep it simple

Staying minimal is the key to your speed of creating Revit families. Whether you want to detail the level for elevations or represent a plan ? this is a very handy way, because in these kinds of matters unnecessary complications can boomerang, impacting your performance in a bad way. Utilizing symbolic lines and masking regions will help keep your map simple and minimal. Combine this with visibility settings to create Revit families that look simple and minimal but are incredibly powerful.

2. Know where to stop

Over-modeling is often what kills a 3D model ? not a healthy practice at all. You can minimize that using limits while creating assemblies and parts. This will help you to avoid overloading the model with all kinds of unnecessary junk. It is key to your best interests that you consider only the assemblies that you need and discard all else. This practice compliments the above “keep it simple” rule beautifully.

The AutoCAD 2022- What’s New?

The new version of the AutoCAD 2022 the renowned 2D/3D CAD program is now focusing on collaboration tools and automations.

The core of AutoCAD remains the same but with the AutoCAD 2022 and AutoCAD Lt 2022 the idea is to collaborate workflow and automations.

Push to Autodesk Docs/Drive: With this feature the team can view digital PDFs in the field in case reference is required. Using this you can also connect to files which are stored in Autodesk Docs and Autodesk drive or even other cloud storage such as Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive and Dropbox. Now uploading drawing templates, plot styles and various other support files or create the DWG files is now possible using the AutoCAD web app.

Drawing review using Trace: For designers drawing reviews are extremely important. With the Autodesk’s trace you and your collaborators can markup the DWG files without having to make changes in the original. When you open the markups, you can find the feedback in context of the original DWG file and make the required changes.

You can now collaborate with Share. The moment in which you share your DWG file you are asked to choose who can view it and decide the level of access you want to give to each user with “view-only” or “edit”. Share links can be generated using AutoCAD and the web app, the links open automatically on the web app.

Autodesk recently launched Revit 2019.2, the first update to Revit 2019

The most striking feature of this upgradation is the transition to cloud computing. Cloud Models for Revit is the latest feature that automatically coordinates BIM 360 and files and saved them to your desktop. Thus, one can get rid of uploading files manually for distributing them. 2019.2 also allows the users to preserve Revit models in the cloud devoid of worksharing them. Now, the individual users will be able to accumulate their models on BIM 360.

Simultaneously, Autodesk has introduced a preview of its Cloud Model Upgrade, so that BIM 360 project admins get the ability to automatically update cloud-stored files to the most updated version of Revit. The upgrade signifies that admins can modify the file formats with a single click of mouse without requiring to go into the files and manually alter them. The current preview alters projects from Revit 2018.3 to Revit 2019 format.

With Site Collaboration the users can connect topography from Civil 3D into Revit as well as arrange building pads and subregions on complex surfaces.

The update also facilitates superior automation of the design-to-fabrication process for concrete. Extended CAM Export facilitates the users to connect cast-in-place/precast concrete projects to automatic fabrication processes, and the Custom Fabric Sheet (CFS) feature facilitates the users to automatically transform reinforcements into custom fabric sheets to make the design-to-fabrication process automatic. There exist more families of hollow concrete slabs, with 13 supplementary types of precast hollow-core slabs.

Besides, Revit 2019.2 comes up with two smaller enhancements directly from the user ideas page—the inclusion of a zoom function in schedule views, and the elimination of the “Element is too small on screen” warning. The first feature aids in the users to view more intimately at their schedules rather straining their eyes, whereas the second facilitates them to shift the objects very short distances devoid of any intrusion from the program.

Latest up-gradation to 3D Repo offers native Revit file support

3D Repo offers the cloud based digital platform for BIM data so that the users can availa the latest 3D models and produce real-time changes and informed decisions online. 3D Repo introduced the most updated version of its cloud-based digital construction platform with some exciting features like data validation with Smart Groups, native Revit file support, updates to SafetiBase (Health & Safety Issue Tracker), API key access, and supplementary rendering options.

With the inclusion of Smart Groups feature the users can get a simple way to authenticate the data and group model components. “Smart Groups democratizes the method of data validation, makes progress tracking simple and finally leads to more consistent data outputs for the client. Besides, it opens up the data validation method to all stakeholders despite of their knowledge of software or licensing constraints of other software.

3D Repo now contains native Revit support so that the users get the ability to upload Revit files directly to the 3D Repo platform where they will be easily controlled in an online database and applied in federations for design coordination.

It will save users significant hours of time while federating models with each design iteration. Earlier the users had to export to IFC file format prior to uploading, now it is possible to just upload files directly from Revit.

SafetiBase feature offers a collaborative way to allocate and utilize health and Safety information and project risk data within the model and it is also upgraded. Major updates comprise of a full audit trail of changes for each risk, supplementary post mitigation risk options, capacity to add and track residual risk and support for several markups.

SafetiBase adheres to the specification for ‘collaborative sharing and application of structured health and safety information with BIM’ (Publicly Available Specification PAS 1192-6).
