This class explores the use of Advance Steel software, Revit software, Robot software, AutoCAD Plant 3D software, Navisworks software and BIM360 software in an integrated BIM process environment. We will touch on some best practices, workarounds, shortcuts, limitations, and advantages around these workflows for the structural steel industry.
The New England area is home to dozens of the most innovative, forward-thinking universities and groundbreaking, world-class hospitals. Continuous growth and investment at these renowned institutions has lead to impressive expansions and renovations that have kept the Greater Boston AEC community buzzing. The complexity of today’s healthcare and higher ed projects, mixed with the demand for condensed construction schedules, creates coordination challenges that only the most experienced and skilled contractors can overcome. Using case studies from projects, J.C. Cannistraro will offer lessons learned from recent hospital and university projects that featured a wide range of technology-based solutions including point-cloud integration with a fabrication-ready mechanical model.
The rebar industry is highly fragmented where the design, detailing, fabrication and installation processes are not as integrated as with other trades such as the structural steel industry. In this presentation, structural engineers and detailers will learn how the industry can transform itself to design and deliver reinforced concrete structures with greater savings and quality to the owner by engaging structural engineers as the bridge between design, fabrication and construction.
This class will walk you through the new features and functionality that launched with Autodesk Advance Steel 2015 and Autodesk Revit Structure 2015, so you can more quickly get up-to-speed with the newest technology.
If you fail to prepare in a virtual world of 3D reinforced concrete structures at design, prepare to fail in a 2D world of detail drawings and bar schedules at construction.This class will demonstrate reinforced concrete structures design and detailing using Revit with SOFiSTiK. This also includes a review of BAM Nuttall’s approach to taking 3D representation of rebar cages in the virtual world into the real world of construction using 2D Drawings and Bar Bending Schedules, all conforming with British Standards.
Engineering firms big and small can extend their services into structural detailing by working closely with the fabricators and builders to connect design into construction. This presentation will discuss how a US-based structural BIM consultancy offers structural detailing services to their clients using BIM-based workflows. Attendees can expect to learn about why these services are offered, and what best practices should be followed to successfully implement BIM-based technologies for generating fabrication deliverables. Both Structural steel, precast concrete, and cast-in-place concrete detailing will be covered.
SOFiSTiK Reinforcement Detailing 2014 significantly accelerates the creation of 2D reinforcement sheets out of 3D models in Autodesk Revit. The product consists of software and a set of families, which can easily be modified to meet local or company standards. Creation of bar lists, bending schedules and cut lists for wire meshes is included as well.
Complete modeling of reinforcement is not simply about the production of rebar fabrication data. In an integrated team environment it brings value to the entire team by fostering better design decision and more innovative solutions. In this presentation we will demonstrate how structural designers working in collaboration with the constructors can improve their designs, reduce risk and create an atmosphere that encourages collaboration and innovation with constructors.
In this presentation, attendees will learn how the structural steel industry is integrating technology to revolutionize the structural steel supply chain. Led by the AISC, the industry is forming strategic initiatives focused on select areas of the structural steel industry to apply technological solutions such as: Model Review and Approval, steelXML (a better way to buy steel), and Automating Steel Fabrication. These initiatives, known as BIMsteel, together form our overall interoperability strategy that will greatly impact the design, fabrication and delivery of structural steel in the US.
