Trends in BIM Tools
May 13, 2014 @ 5:30 pm
The idea of building information modeling (BIM) has been around for nearly a decade, but the tools that enable architects, engineers and construction firms to share intelligence throughout the project have changed drastically. During this one-hour presentation we’ll discuss the tools that exist today and the trends affecting the tools you’ll see tomorrow. We’ll cover:
– Reality Capture – from laser scanning to cell phones
– Analysis Options – energy, visualization, airflow
– Cloud Computing – who owns data that ‘lives in the cloud’?
– Prefabrication – both for HVAC or complete homes
– 3D Printing – Cookie cutter may take on a whole new meaning in the future
We hope you’ll join us for this lively discussion and presentation with Joe Eichenseer and Kevin Austin.
