Description

Description

Capitalizing on Building Information Modeling (BIM) for new buildings is easy—you get to start with a fresh, clean file, and you can lay out everything you need precisely where it is supposed to be. However, what if you are doing an addition, a renovation, or historic preservation? Most of what is important to a structural engineer is probably hidden behind an existing facade or finish. And yet the model must go on. This class offers tips and suggestions for modeling existing structures, including extrapolating information from incomplete data, identifying known and unknown elements, and managing ownership of scope areas.
