In this class, we will introduce you to BIM 360 Docs software’s API. BIM 360 Docs software is a cloud-based document management system tailored specifically for construction projects. As the document at the center of BIM 360 family products, BIM 360 Docs software promises to play an important role for unified development of the BIM 360 mobile and web platform. BIM 360 Docs software provides an API as a part of the Forge Platform Data Management API. Using the Forge Platform API, you can access documents stored in BIM 360 Docs software, display models using the Viewing API, and search data in the model. Using the API, for example, you can automate updating models from external applications, make a report to keep track of a team’s progress, and connect your own web services applications with BIM 360 Docs projects. We will show you how to get started with the BIM 360 Docs API, share examples of use cases, and demonstrate what you can do using the BIM 360 Docs API. This session features BIM 360 Docs and Forge.

Take your Forge applications to the next level with the newly introduced Forge Webhooks API. Webhooks are an industry standard mechanism for subscribing to 'event notifications', allowing you to streamline and simplify your Forge workflows and leverage leading integration services such as Jitterbit, Zapier and Mulesoft. In this class we'll show you everything you need to get started with this simple but powerful tool.
With the recent addition of BIM 360 support to InfraWorks software, collaborating on your infrastructure projects has become both easier and much more powerful. This session will focus on the basics of the "BIM 360 to InfraWorks" workflow, including sharing your model, synchronizing, using the Large Model Viewer, and setting up permissions for the team. We'll also explore how to use the collaborative power of BIM 360 to share all of your InfraWorks assets, such as geographic information system (GIS) data sets, AutoCAD Civil 3D files, Revit files, 3D models, overlays, scripts, and other support content.
Prefabrication and automation in offsite construction requires building models to be rich in data. The generation of construction drawings, creation of a bill of materials and the application of fabricated information is required in the model. In wood construction for example, it requires modeling of accurate processing (precutting) and assembly of prefabricated items including tooling (e.g. nailing and milling operations). All this, including derived data in the form of CNC files, shop drawings, etc., needs to be accessible by all stakeholders - the builders, prefabricators and project managers. By combining Autodesk products and APIs, hsbcad has developed improved workflows to create and modify rich model content. Revit content is able to enrich cloud based BIM that drives CNC equipment and improves on site processes. This leads to increased efficiency and cost control for the complete construction process.Joint AU/Forge DevCon class
This class will dig into Revit software with tips and tricks from the low-hanging fruit (symbols, text, and standards) and things to consider (metric, Imperial or soft metric, geographies, and so on). We'll look at using note block content for abbreviation lists and schedules, processing diagrams using custom families, and keynoting. We'll cover assemblies codes, what view templates are and how to use them effectively for consistency from templates forward, sample practices for view naming and browser management in anticipation of exports, and ways of managing work sets in local and linked files to help speed up your system by simply organizing data. We'll also look at how work sets track through links, schema for management, best practices on file sizes, and how to push those limits and possibly a few Dynamo Scripts to assist in management and setups of projects.
This class will go over all aspects of an integrated project delivery (IPD) / Building Information Modeling (BIM) project for health care or science projects. We'll review different methods of project delivery and effective implementation plans. During the class, we'll cover fundamentals of laser scanning for IPD/BIM projects and we'll show examples. We'll review and discuss owner agreements and lean practices that are used on the IPD projects. In regards to legal aspects, we'll discuss some information for different project scenarios.
In this hands-on lab, we'll walk you through a concrete project workflow using GRAITEC Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers for Revit and a connected structural BIM workflow to take advantage of automation offered by BIM. You'll use Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers for Revit to automatically generate code-checked, 3D rebar cages for columns, beams, and footings of your Revit project, applying the ACI codes. You'll explore the achieved results and how you can manipulate them to a variety of situations to suit your specific or regional needs. You'll use Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers to generate engineering-approved design reports, automatically produce and fine-tune detailed drawing views, and complete bar schedules-all from Revit software. Finally, you'll create sheets and finish off the detail using some tools from the GRAITEC PowerPack for Revit, and you'll publish the documentation in BIM 360 Docs software to manage revision control.
This class will help you kick start and accelerate your development on the Forge platform by demonstrating best practice workflows and tips & tricks for managing REST API calls and consuming JSON data. Examples will include uses of the Model Derivative API, Data Management API (including accessing data in BIM 360 Docs), Authentication API and Design Automation API. Prior knowledge in Web and Cloud development is recommended.
This will be an introduction to AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 software and InfraWorks 2018 software working with BIM 360 software to provide work sharing and design collaboration to the infrastructure design and construction. The class will show how to use Autodesk Drive service and BIM 360 to bring data shortcuts to a whole new level. We'll also explore our models from AutoCAD Civil 3D and InfraWorks in BIM 360 for review and markup.
This session will bring together several companies that have developed unique integrations with the BIM 360 platform to extend the reach of the tools and workflows connected into BIM 360's common data environment for construction management. They'll each share their experience and offer insights into the development process and business opportunities. (Joint AU/Forge DevCon class).
The global architecture, engineering, and construction industry could benefit from better adherence to standards. Many data standards exist, but few succeed. Who mandates the standard? Owner? Architect? Government? Representatives from ConstructionProgress.org and Construction Open Standards Alliance (COSA.build) will kick off this roundtable discussion with a brief overview of the current Building Information Modeling (BIM) and construction data standards available today (in the United States and abroad). After defining the available data standards, the group will debate the relative adoption rates of these standards in the real world. The intended outcome is not to solve the technology barrier. Instead, it is to overcome the people and process barriers to digital collaboration. This roundtable debate will produce key opportunities to impact digital-standards adoption at the individual or company level.
In Australia, procuring and delivering infrastructure projects digitally is still in its infancy. We need to encourage our clients and not confuse-simplicity is the key. We've all heard the cliché "a picture tells a thousand words," but there's real value in using images to promote engineering content. Images help us learn, grab attention, explain tough concepts, and inspire. Master Information Delivery Plans (MIDP) and levels of detail (LOD), which are usually very detailed wordy descriptions, can be easily represented through diagrams-which can then be used as a basis for developing Task Information Delivery Plans (TIDP). I have used these diagrams successfully on projects with government clients, and can easily explain the required inputs, what will be delivered through the milestones of delivery, and the outputs at each stage of project delivery. This will also let you build content within Building Information Modeling (BIM)-enabled platforms for consistency in delivery.
