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).

How to manage projects with BIM efficiently

Building information modeling (BIM) process gains huge popularity among the architecture and construction industry. Since, BIM is extensively used by several architectural and engineering firms into their practice, it becomes difficult for the project managers to control the project teams employing BIM.

Given below, some vital tips to manage project with BIM in an efficient manner.

Recognize the method

BIM stands for a collaborative method of generating coordinated, internally logical and quantifiable information concerning a building with a central system of 3d models in spite of a separate set of 2d drawings. It is a new way of working that simplifies the workflow with an unified approach.

Know the competencies of the tool

A Revit model is much more than a 3d model, it contains a database of information which can be used for constructability analysis, quantity take-offs, performance analysis, facilities management and so on. Working in a model based framework makes sure greater precision; as components change in the plan, they proceed in elevations and sections. When the windows are provided in the exterior wall, window schedules are updated. Prompt 3d visualization facilitates taking decisions in advance. As a minimum, find out how to open, close and navigate through a model, cut sections and print drawings.

Follow the 60/40 rule

BIM workflow generally comprises of two steps: modeling and documentation. Accept about 60% of the time for modeling, rest for generating and annotating drawings. Set up design and documentation benchmarks and decide on the level of detailing for different elements before starting modeling. Should the model be applied for construction documentation or fabrication and assembly? Prior to add a wall, ascertain its width, make and fire rating. Fix the rules at the beginning.

Have a clash detection competition

A Revit model can easily determine the spatial clashes among different systems in the building, like ducts moving through beams or lights hitting sprinklers. It facilitates saving time and cost because of less errors all through the construction. While Revit facilitates fundamental diagnostics, software like Navisworks can recognize and document conflicts comprehensively. Arrange every other coordination meeting to be virtual, discuss with the model.

Advance Steel – Status Control Inside Model And Drawings

In Advance Steel, the users can use the options to provide a Status level to both the drawing and the model elements and it is often described as Key Stages/Life Cycles inside the production process.

 

The Status system remains as part of the Fabrication data inside Advance Steel, it can contain levels/statuses which are included to it through the Management Tool (MT) System. Besides, comment levels are included to approve the status.

 

Various colors can be arranged while generating anything inside the MT. These can then be applied to provide colourisation/highlighting to the model. It is accomplished with the project explorer and the saved Query Feature.

Together with this, there exist a status level for drawings, the drawing system is segregated to the model elements, because drawings may not always remain at the equivalent status as the model, as for instance the model may be left for revision, the elements in the model are updated, but the drawings are not located at similar point. But at some point, they will obtain an adjustment, then a modification in status level of Reissued etc., then modifying to the same status as model at some point.

 

The vital fact is that a “STATUS” level, is not an adjustment to the drawing, it belongs to the present state of the drawing to the overall life cycle to the project, so the two systems are not same, but can be employed in combination to deliver a life cycle management to the system for Autodesk Advance Steel document and model management.

 

To get detailed idea on the different steps and operation, go through the following video presentations.

This Revit Video Tutorial Sheds Light On Autodesk Revit 2017 Extension

Advance Steel 2017 Extension empowers Autodesk® Revit® 2017 users to instantly link their models to Advance Steel 2017 by applying the export, import and synchronize functionalities to transmit the model BIM data in LOD350 for Structural Steel. This conformity facilitates the users to generate general arrangement drawings, fabrication drawings, BOMs, and NC files for steel structures quickly and efficiently.

With use of synchronized BIM data among applications, the users will be able to update the changes (if any) devoid of reimporting the whole structure. Synchronization also minimizes the risk of probable mistakes by pursuing the changes occurred on the same model in various applications.

With Advance Steel 2017 Extension, the BIM data from the Revit model is imported or exported in other formats like SDNF (Version 2.0 and Version 3.0), CIS2 and PSS.
