In this class we will discuss the use of intelligent and informative design applications and 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) in a multiple-discipline project environment. These methods enable the rapid creation of project reports, bills of material, and additional supporting project documentation for both design review and procurement support. Discussion topics include the collaboration capabilities and conflicts between AutoCAD P&ID software, AutoCAD Plant 3D software, Revit software, AutoCAD Civil 3D software, and Navisworks project review software. We will also cover referencing models from various design software, export and import methods, and real-time design review. These capabilities are not only beneficial to engineers and designers, but they also provide substantial benefit to the client, the contractors and the construction managers. We will look at the limitations and advantages to working in a multiple-discipline, real-time environment, and we will touch on some of the most effective practices and work-arounds.
