Detailing in BIM with ARCHICAD
February 1, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST
ALL MEMBERS – Getting details just right on your designs without overloading your model can be a bit tricky. In this ARCHICAD In-Practice session, Jamie Ingram with UHA London demonstrates different techniques for modeling complex assemblies and construction systems. His methods include custom library parts creation, optioneering filters and the new railing tool.
All the details can then be extracted directly from the model, and be kept live, in a true BIM workflow without requiring any 2D drafting at all. This level of detail is applied only in certain areas of the model, to keep the overall polygon count under control.
Architect ARB, UHA London, is a BIM specialist and ARCHICAD expert, specialising in bioclimatic design and energy efficiency through building information and energy modeling. An experienced BIM manager, Jamie coordinates the different consultants information models to detect systems clashing, run rule checks and accomplish a fully compliant design prior to tender. Familiar with the use of GDL scripting (Geometric Description Language) applied to produce custom parametric elements with embedded intelligence and user configuration native to ARCHICAD.
