This class will demonstrate the workflow between Revit software, Navisworks software, and Primavera software, referring to a project we delivered (the LNG tank located in Gladstone, Australia). In successfully delivering our work, we developed a structural model with scheduled 3D reinforcement utilizing the rebar extension tools and developing adaptive component families to represent as post tension. We will go through the tips and tricks that the company has picked up along the way, and explain further the reason why we used adaptive components. Furthermore, you will see that within Navisworks software we used the simulate functionality of the product to integrate the client’s native construction program utilizing certain rules and tricks. Once the Building Information Modeling (BIM) was developed, we validated the design and constructability utilizing 3D, 4D, and 5D workflows.
In this case study we will present how InfraWorks software has been used to establish a multidisciplinary coordinating model using Infrastructure Design Suite software, and we’ll describe a successful workflow of how to best interact between the different software systems. The project is a complex hydropower scheme that includes a total of 20 kilometers of tunnels, 4 different reservoirs, several dams, creek intakes, and 2 different underground power stations. The lecture will focus on the advantage of using InfraWorks software from the early phase in a project through to the design phase. We will show you how we combined publicly available terrain data with highly detailed aerial laser scanning, aerial imagery, and underwater surveying. We will show our developed workflow between InfraWorks software, Revit software, and AutoCAD Civil 3D software, and how you can use InfraWorks software to combine geographic information system (GIS) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) in a common 3D model. Using InfraWorks software, large amounts of data was made accessible to Project Team members with standard laptops and workstations.
Follow us on our journey as we work toward building an owner’s vision into one of the most inventive aquariums in the country. We will show how BIM engineers can successfully work with owners, architects, general contractors, and subcontractors during the preconstruction phase of any project in order to coordinate scheduling and procurement, reduce requests for information, improve construction sequencing, and much more. This couldn’t be possible if BIM Engineers didn't use multiple Autodesk, Inc., products, and we will demonstrate how these products’ interoperability enabled us to successfully coordinate with the entire Project Team from inception to completion. These products combined enabled us to create a construction model that was not only used for coordination of all trades, but was also used to generate constructability drawings for the field. Watch as we demonstrate how to successfully create these drawings, and we’ll also show how a unique collaborative process and Autodesk products can improve any project’s return on investments.
BIM 360 Glue software has revolutionized the way site and office teams collaborate, removing barriers to successful Building Information Modeling (BIM) implementation and driving BIM adoption at all levels on the project. The intuitive nature of BIM 360 Glue software has enabled Hansen Yuncken to overcome the technical divide with its site teams and subcontractors, developing a motivated workforce to become more active in the BIM process. This session will look at 2 specific case studies and the workflows implemented to harness site teams’ involvement in the collaboration and coordination process. It will cover some of the core features and how the software was used in the field to coordinate trades and contribute to quick and practical design resolutions. There will be an overview of enhanced workflows, and we’ll look at how to gain greater efficiencies by utilizing the streamlined integration with Revit software and Navisworks software for greater collaboration and downstream use during construction and commissioning phases.
Come to this session to learn about workflow between Autodesk applications regarding how to generate an infrastructure Building Information Modeling (BIM) model. We will look at InfraWorks software as a conceptual tool, at AutoCAD Civil 3D software for project development, at Revit software to generate BIM elements, and at all the information aggregated in Navisworks software.
When you have a complex project where Building Information Modeling (BIM) coordination is absolutely necessary, and you add to the equation that design consultants and all of the subcontractors have no BIM experience . . . you are in a challenging position. The intention of this class is to give you an idea of the implemented BIM workflow in a temple project located in Argentina (South America), where BIM use is not developed yet in this region. However, the proposed implemented workflow (single-source work-share partner) is applicable to many other situations, even in advanced BIM markets. We will share this experience and discuss pros and cons of the approach, results achieved, and proposed next steps. We’ll go all the way from Revit software design models, to coordination with Navisworks software and Autodesk 360 cloud-computing platform, to fabrication models with AutoCAD MEP software versus Revit software and shop drawings generation, to approval process. A complete workflow analysis from start to finish.
This class will discuss how to create complex building-site parametric tools (crane, formwork, security) thanks to Revit software family’s technologies and its API. We will focus on the practical-use cases where the combination of these 2 technologies can assist engineers in the proper choice of crane, optimized formwork, scaffolding, security materials, and other site equipment. In order to achieve this, it is crucial to understand both the manufacturers and our company’s security and productivity rules and guidelines and synchronize them both to best equip our engineers and sites.
Many of us have been creating models for our projects for some time now, but have we really been getting the most out of them? By starting our modeling process earlier we can capitalize on our models for better quantities and an overall better project. Join us as we guide you through the process of extracting quality quantities out of your models and using that data for estimating, scheduling, and production tracking. We start by sharing how we create our Revit software models for the most effective quantities that will have the greatest effect on our final design. We will also show you how to capitalize on shared parameters to sort and group takeoffs as well as track production data, and push this information in and out of the model without ever opening Revit software. Quantities should live on throughout construction and into operations in order to help us gain better insights into our projects. Using Assemble to get the most out of your quantities will surely start a revolution among your team.
In this class you will learn how to create a detailed bridge model using mainly Revit software, a little bit of Dynamo software, and AutoCAD Civil 3D software as a data source for alignments and profiles. This class won’t touch the Bridge Modeling Revit software extensions—we’ll be showing tips and tricks for modeling from scratch to fulfill the required accuracy. Furthermore, we’ll be giving insight to a developed workflow that has been created for customers in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Upfront there will be a brief introduction about challenges that planners and engineers have to face when creating those very complex shaped projects. The bridge itself will be a real project that was designed by a German planning office the "old" 2D way and was built in the past.
This class will cover the importance of having an organized and standardized list of assets so the information can be manage at the maintenance and operations level, which is key in this process. It will also address the parameters that need to be consider for this effort, along with establishing responsibilities throughout the project development, such as who will be responsible for filling what and, most important, when this should happen (design, construction, and/or operations).
This class will cover how Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT Group), the largest telecommunication company from Japan, turned its complex data center facility Building Information Modeling (BIM) project into a successful BIM project from the facility owner’s perspectives with Autodesk Consulting. The owner established a BIM management office within their organization to manage the BIM process, utilizing project management methodology by Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). Revit software was used to generate construction drawings and as-built drawings. Additionally, 3D models were coordinated and collaborated using BIM 360 Glue software during the preconstruction phase. The building QA/QC and commissioning process was redesigned using BIM 360 Field software. Information within Revit software was imported into the data center facility management system using Revit software’s COBie Toolkit and the data exchange format was customized to fit the facility manager’s demand.
Gone are the days of relying solely upon in-situ mock-ups to generate issues and drive decision-making. With the emergence of the virtual mock-up and virtual reality solutions, mock-ups can now be generated much earlier in the coordination process, thus saving you time and money by driving the conversation earlier in the design phase. The purpose of this class is to demonstrate how utilizing lean construction methods and various tools (Navisworks software, Revit software, AutoCAD software, and 3ds Max software) coupled with virtual reality tools can enable you to guide the design and owner groups into making meaningful and educated design changes early in the design phase. Through the review of multiple case studies we will demonstrate the cost-benefit analysis of each type of mock-up, as well as determine which types of information we can obtain from each.
