  • 01. BIM DEFINITION

    BIM = Building Information Modeling Building Information Modeling is a design and management methodology involving digital multi-dimensional models representing an entire project or some of its parts. The digital models contain a series of information describing every aspect of the built asset. This information may be of different types: geometry, geographic position, material properties, costs,…

  • 02. URBAN LEGENDS

    There are many urban legends and false myths about BIM. In most of them BIM seems like a magical tool that can design projects and solve interferences automatically, without the efforts of a good designer. Let’s debunk some of the most common false beliefs about BIM: BIM is all about 3d modeling: FALSE. 3D data…

  • 03. BIM SUPERPOWERS

    A BIM model is a virtual prototype of a building. Having an accurate model of the final project completed during the design phase allows the designer / the design team to take better decisions, to anticipate problems therefore to find solutions even months before the construction phase. In this sense BIM has a lot of…

  • 04. THE DARK SIDE OF BIM

    Switching from traditional workflow to BIM implies some cons that architects and designers must face: 1. Training costs: To form a fully BIM capable team an adequate training period is necessary. Whatever you want to follow online courses or obtain a proper certification from an acclaimed institute, training time and costs are ineluctable. Moreover it…

  • 05. ALL THE BIM DIMENSIONS

    A BIM model is more than a 3d model (we’ve covered this topic here LINK); it is a multi dimensional model. Every time a specific type of information is specified into the model a different dimension is set. So, theoretically, there could be various dimensions…infinite dimensions. However, according to BIM fundamentals there are seven recognized…

  • 06. WHAT DOES LOD MEAN?

    LOD acronym means Level of Development. LOD is the level of analytic progression of the informative models. LOD  communicates the grade of reliability of the information included in a BIM model. While in a standard approach, moving from sketches to detailed design gives a clear definition of the project stage itself, in a BIM model…
