    Sharing CAD and Building Information Modeling (BIM) data with project team members who are outside of your organization has its challenges. If outside team members are using software packages that are different than yours, the challenges are multiplied. In this class, we will discuss methods and best practices that you can put in place to help make the data-sharing process go a bit smoother. We will also cover best practices for working on a project that uses integrated project delivery (IPD) and only Autodesk® Revit® software among multidiscipline team members, including taking full advantage of the live model for coordination. We will go from the initial project team kickoff meeting, through "in-progress" coordination meetings, and finally through project delivery.

    Key Learnings

    • Put together a dynamic "changes on the fly" coordination session on Revit only, multidiscipline IPD projects
    • Determine the best methods for sharing data (formats, naming, schedule, and import/export methods) throughout the project team
    • Identify potential issues that may occur when team members are working with different software packages
    • Develop best practices for multidiscipline, multiple-firm, multiple-software product coordination
