WORKFLOW & COLLABORATION / Template creation
« Last post by Erik_P on May 05, 2017, 04:12:20 pm »
I fell across this post: http://archsmarter.com/revit-template/ and got Micheal's template. I like the concept. Are there other effective strategies to developing a template?

TOOLS & TECHNOLOGY / Design to Documentation
« Last post by bimfreak on May 03, 2017, 09:59:00 am »
I had a meeting the other day with my Design Manager and his problem with BIM is the lack of 'back and forth' with his design tools. I have been tasked to bridge that can cross the chasm between Design iterations and documentation easily. So my question to everyone out there:
1. What Design tools does your firm currently use?
2. What is the current process for iterating the designs during documentation?

I am currently researching a way to create a process that allows the designer what they want but advances BIM without losing money.

Thanks Carl for this topic.
Looking forward to read comments from other IFC users and to see IFC4 evolution in the following months...

Scanner looks amazing, I like your reference to Apple ;) It's even more fitting, as it seems to be geared towards designers for gathering quick as-built data at the beginning of a project instead of survey level accuracy. Price point is nice, might help sway some people into buying one of these instead of sending out a junior with a tape measure. Another thing I like is that you don't need to place targets, as it has motion sensors to locate itself for registration.

ROLES & RESPONSABILITIES / Re: Is BIM Manager a dirty word?
« Last post by zuberio on May 01, 2017, 02:13:17 pm »
I am a VDC Manager. That being said, I've been a BIM Coordinator for 2 years and then a VDC Coordinator for another 5 years after that. I didn't become a Manager until I was brought into the head office and tasked with overseeing the deployment and support of BIM Coordinators in Eastern Canada. Thus, I believe my title fits with the expected definition of the previous posters in this thread. However, in my position, my previous experience in Navisworks and Revit is definitely an asset - from initial project setup (software strengths & weaknesses) to ongoing project support (new BIM Coordinator needs help with software) and into project handover (as-builts, coordination progress history, coordination sign-off).

TOOLS & TECHNOLOGY / Leica + Autodesk, BLK360

Autodesk has teamed up with Leica in an attempt to upend the laser scanner world with what I would call the iPhone of laser scanners. I've handled a non-functioning prototype of the device and it physically feels amazing. And from what little information I can gather on the as-yet unreleased device capabilities - Leica hasn't cut corners on the 'crispness' of the scanned data. Anyone else have more info to add about this?
