Working with Consultants
« on: May 24, 2017, 09:48:06 am »
I have a few smaller consultant firms that use Revit as a '2D drafting tool', other than refusing to have them on projects what else has anyone found that may work in this collaboration issue? FYI this is a Structural consultant and having a 3D representation of their model is desperately needed.
Collaboration is everything

Other than making it a contractual requirement, the best option may be education. You may need to show them the benefits that BIM has, not only for your sake, but also theirs. Show them that their workflow can be improved and provide support when they need it. It may be a little more work for you to help guide them, but should payoff when you can properly coordinate in 3D.
