In this class we will show the whole Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow, from the design and analysis phase, passing from modeling to delivering drawings. Information flows into different processes with no answer. Several times there can be loss of information and a lot of rework. We will show you how to model a project in Revit software in order to be useful for design and analysis; how to place loads and then export the analytical lines and areas to SOFiSTiK FEA; and how to calculate the efforts and then bring it back to Revit software to reinforce the concrete. Finally, the client will want drawings, so with some SOFiSTiK tools we will show how to assemble drawings into sheets quickly and easily, bringing a 3D model to 2D sheets. In this session we will use the example of a 25-story building. We will start with Revit software for the conceptual and design phases, then use SOFiSTiK FEA software for the analysis phase, and finally we’ll turn to Revit software and SOFiSTiK Reinforcement for detailing and documentation
- Learn how to optimize your design workflow
- Discover how to model analytical lines and areas in Revit, and then design and analyze in SOFiSTiK FEA
- Discover how to assemble easy shop drawings
- Learn how to start a structure design project from scratch
Juan Carlos Garza holds a degree in civil engineering from Anahuac University, Mexico City, with a minor in sustainable development and a CAPM title. Juan has 6 years of experience in project management and construction. He started working at FCC SA 4 years ago, and then he joined the Building Information Modeling (BIM) department at ICA, Mexico’s largest construction company. At ICA he was in charge of advising the clients in BIM management strategies. In May of 2014 he was invited to the Autodesk, Inc., NAC3 event. At the end of 2014 he co-founded The BIM Group, a company dedicated to innovating the construction industry in Mexico, implementing BIM, and applying other virtual design and construction (VDC) technologies. He works closely with the structural design departments and the survey areas, innovating new ways of delivering more information in less time to the clients. Nowadays The BIM Group owns a portfolio of 1.3 billion dollars in projects. He is proud to be an Autodesk Gunslinger since 2014. He likes sports cars and traveling to the beach.
After receiving his diploma in structural engineering at Technical University Munich, Thomas has worked in structural engineering and software development for over 30 years. He is co-founder and CEO of SOFiSTiK AG, a leading German supplier of software for analysis, design, and detailing. He was on the board of the German section of buildingSMART for more than 10 years, and chaired the working group “innovations” of the Bavarian Chamber of Building Engineers.
