How should you manage your BIM 360 projects? Do you need to overview multiple projects—or 100 intelligent models in the same project? Or information spread in millions of objects? As a leading BIM construction company, VINCI Construction France is always looking to improve project management processes. In this class, we will present how a cloud-tools-based solution may arise to limit tasks that are time-consuming or have no brain value. This session will show the VINCI Construction France dashboard that was developed with the help of the BIM 360 API and the Forge platform to enable the models’ quality overview using data from the different bricks of BIM 360 software. This dashboard enables the firm to surface some insights from each BIM 360 component of a BIM project, and dive into that data to deliver better BIM quality through the firm’s BIM checking tools and methods. This class will present a custom Forge API development inspired by Sam Nseir's work: "Integrate BIM 360 data with PowerBI using R."
- Understand how far you can go through BIM 360 and the Data Management API
- Understand the dashboards benefits helping to dive in models on BIM 360
- Discover the Forge use for BIM management
- Learn how to build user-friendly PowerBI forms to show relevant BIM data
