A carefully planned BIM workflow enabled the design team to create both coordination and structural analysis models for a structure with highly complex geometry extremely fast and efficiently. Using AutoCAD® as a central hub of geometric definitions, the design team was able to communicate seamlessly between Rhinoceros®, Revit®-based software, and SAP2000®. This resulted in the architecture, coordination, and analysis models all matching each other perfectly while also making it easy to track changes and update the models as the design progressed.


  • Set up a BIM workflow process using modern design tools such as Revit-based software and AutoCAD
  • Explain the benefits of establishing an efferent BIM workflow early in the life of a project
  • Describe how modern technologies can be used to develop communication between structural analysis and coordination models
  • Explain how the integration of various programs can be used to achieve multiple technical and coordination goals
