Modeling Masonry for Design and Construction - 1 LU
Thursday, August 26, 2021 | 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time
Presented by: 3DiQ Inc.
Get an overview of how 3D computer models are being applied to produce better masonry designs and improve construction efficiency. Building Information Models (BIM) are increasingly becoming the primary medium for design and documentation in commercial construction. From the earliest conceptual stage to detailed coordination in the field, models are improving traditional workflows. In this session, we’ll discuss how using BIM for masonry strategies can improve sustainability and reduce material waste, noise, and dust at construction sites. This lessens the demands on our infrastructure and transportation systems. It also mitigates the effects of construction activities on our environment.
- Describe the challenges of modeling masonry systems.
- Explore the limitations of Revit when detailing masonry.
- Investigate how Level of Development (LOD) 350+ models can improve outcomes.
- Analyze strategies to reduce remodeling from design and material waste from construction.
