Why BIM? The Realization for 3D Modeling Coordination
The construction industry’s acknowledgment that substantial savings were found is what sparked the switch from a 2D CAD process to 3D BIM (Building Information Modeling). For instance, Navisworks far exceeds CAD’s traditional overlay approach. Using BIM to virtually model trades and, in addition, performing multi-trade coordination for clash identification is more efficient.
Old-school 2D processes have usefulness in the industry. However, they are incapable of thoroughly identifying all complex, overlapping routing clashes. As a result, trade installers find them later, on the job site, after their discipline is already installed. The result is expensive delays, reworks, tear-outs and inefficient rerouting. These issues are 100% avoidable when seen in advance using BIM.
In steps BIM
Virtual coordination, through BIM, eliminates any of these problems before the construction process even begins. This is specifically true because collaboration via Navisworks finds conflicts otherwise missed in the 2D clash-detection process.
Due to this, a project will go into production without any costly complications in the form of unanticipated conflicts and time-delaying, makeshift modifications. Furthermore, time-saving, spooled details allow for the prefabrication of parts produced off-site and ready to go in place as needed. The results are therefore more efficient and also more cost-effective.
The Future is now
BIM has arrived and is gaining momentum as the industry standard as a growing percentage of the industry embraces its benefits daily. Without a doubt, the overall trade installation experience has become virtually simplified, needing less site-time and investigation than previously required.
In summary, on-the-spot, unplanned adjustments are a thing of the past because conflicts can now be studied and rerouted ahead of time virtually, using BIM. Creating an entirely clash-cleared model long before the construction process begins is now a reality.
These are just a few of the many benefits of implementing BIM today.
