Extend the efficacy of BIM into your facility management with Torcon Facilities Solutions (TFS)

Torcon Facilities Solutions (TFS) is an exclusive program launched by Torcon, a regional construction services leader. TFS offers a smooth and continuous addition of Building Information Modeling (BIM) into the facilities management programs of any client.

Making an alliance with ARCHIBUS, an internationally recognized software developer and industry expert in facility management and space planning solutions, TFS will provide professional consulting services for facility management professionals all through the lifecycle phase of a building and improve productivity and utility.

By applying TFS, Torcon will help in employing its BIM knowledge for post-construction and overall facility maintenance required by the clients. The clients will be able to have access an extensive database through BIM documentation, collected all through the construction process. This information can be incorporated into current facility maintenance operations.

“The last ten years have seen a revolution in the design world with the rapid implementation of BIM,” said Sam Arabia, CM-BIM, Torcon Facility Solutions. “BIMf® represents the next big frontier as too few companies are leveraging this rich data to drive operating efficiencies. BIMf® not only captures previously unrealized cost savings, but it will also allow for a more thorough understanding of the building’s history and needs.

Many companies, who acquire BIM information after the closing of the project, find it difficult to transfer the data to their facilities management systems. TFS will solve this problem easily.

Due to insufficient interoperability amid CAD, engineering and facility management software inside the property, construction and facility management industry as well as inefficiencies in operations and maintenance of the construction, huge cost is incurred.

TFS can significantly speed up exchanging and distributing information as well as efficiency through a turnkey program suggesting advanced technology and penetrating consulting advice.

An exclusive video tutorial on Title Block in Revit 2015

Revit contains a special family known as Title Block which is identical to standard families but there are some supplementary features specific to title blocks. As for example, the revision schedule is considered as the most noteworthy.

To start from the beginning, select new and select title block. From there, choose a template for the title block. Beyond the box, there will be some easy templates which are essentially outlines of the sheet at the preferred size.

As for instance, opt for A1 metric. You will be directed to a very basic title block involving 4 lines & making up the sketch of a metric sheet of 841mm wide x 594mm high.

If there is an obtainable CAD Title Block, it can be imported to Revit as well as save a lot of time while generating one from the beginning.

Go through the following exclusive revit video tutorial that focuses on title block stamp with Revit 2015.

Some crucial enhancements with Autodesk’s free desktop modeling apps

Autodesk has added some new features to its free consumer modeling and 3D printing prep tools. Meshmixer, one of the easy to use molding applications of Autodesk that can be used for integration, sculpting and painting 3D meshes, now contains some crucial up-gradations with 3D printing.

As for instance, the new Make Slices tool of Meshmixer generates a wide array of cross-sections by applying either a stacked or stacked3D method. There is option to include/edit custom printers which facilitate model prep to any 3D printer.

On the modeling part, drag and drop of solid objects is possible with Meshmixer. There exit a new primitives category as well as a Separate Shells tool to take apart integrated geometry into distinct objects. This newest version is also compatible with PLY binary, a 3D polygon format common with 3D scanners.

Another intuitive product of Autodesk is free consumer-grade 123D Design application. It also consists of a new feature like a new UI that makes it identical to other 123D apps besides providing access to models generated with other 123D applications through MyProjects. Based on Inventor, the CAD-lite solid modeler comes up with latest modeling tools which are utilized for merging, subtracting and intersecting operations amid meshes and solids.

The modeling work is also improved with the addition of the new snapping options together with an option for integrating objects on STL export to support printers that read first body only. 123D Design also contains the options like opening, inserting, and saving meshes in STL and OBJ formats and import of SVG files to be applied as sketches or as simple extrusions.
