7、Template modeling project

Combined with the creation of the actual engineering template component family, the template support of the wall, frame columns and floor slabs are explained, including the modeling and arrangement of the template and support system components.

Use revit software system to analyze the template modeling and template material segmentation statistics dosage. Utilize revit software enterprise to carry on the template material development actual engineering quantity statistics, accurate management control turnover material, reduce the construction project company cost.

Navisworks software application program

Combined with the actual project model, the use of navisworks software basic function operation method, and then integrate the application of the actual project of the office building site, pit, construction, structure, mechanical and electrical professional actual model, animation browsing, sectional application, animation recording; 4D building fine simulation; collision checking and export the list of problems.

Through the use of Navisworks software for parts clearance and size measurement, you can master the actual comprehensive operation method of BIM application Navisworks software and expand your thoughts.

9. The application of mutual guidance between revit and computational modeling

Combined with revit structural, architectural design model, the use of revit model can be exported to the GFC file system operation, and then the new civil construction calculation file, the GFC file imported into the use of computer software by adjusting the strength of each layer of soil mixing different levels of relationship between processing, each layer of components list and the application of the quota subheading, and finally the students to analyze the engineering technology data exported.

Solve the bottleneck problem of BIM model and calculation, achieve the purpose of using BIM model calculation, control the actual cost of the project.

The BIM project collaborative management platform allows you to understand the project teams involved by all parties, permission assignment, project creation, model uploading, and model local download.

Use the model as a carrier for dialog, screenshot, picture uploading, quality, safety, and technology management; use the data management function to check and fill in forms, use the platform to generate 2D codes for material tracking and management; use the platform for progress management and other practical explanations.

Focus on the landing application, fine modeling and practice in building construction, proficient in the application of models in construction projects and management techniques.

(Models are uploaded → Models can be browsed → Guidance on engineering construction → Problems as well as collaboration → Progress control → Acceptance).

From overall modeling to detailed application, from quality inspection to progress tracking, from project statistics to project completion, BIM technology has a broad application space in all stages of construction.

The visualization of BIM makes engineering construction more intuitive and avoids rework; the refinement of BIM makes the project cost accurately controlled. Therefore, BIM technology is an effective tool for engineering construction project management.

What is lacking in the BIM era is compound talents who can skillfully use BIM technology and add value to the project.
