Sample text

For example, consider the construction industry, which has traditionally worked in silos, usually reflecting the job titles or qualifications of each team or office, such as architects, structural engineers, quantity surveyors, mechanical engineers, and landscape architects. This is in direct contrast to the idea of BIM, which allows everyone in the supply chain to add content to a unified model. Nothing prevents construction from leading innovation rather than playing catch-up with the manufacturing sector, but it needs to understand the power of information.

The drawings required at a particular stage are one of many outputs you can take from the information model. So you more than likely encounter people using 3D software but not really working in three dimensions, or people fudging the accurate construction information to get the visual output they want. These two tasks are separate, and you can’t confuse them. It’s more important that the 3D content is enough for consultants, contractors, and users to extract the real information they need. So zoom in to check how things join.

The most significant change is in how the project team manages information across the life of a project. If you wanted to, you could accurately replicate the geometry of the entire human body, so that you had a perfect 3D model of human anatomy (and these models do exist as study tools for medical professionals). However, so much information is missing from the model that represents a real person, including age, medical history, family history, occupation, lifestyle, and daily routine. The geometry is only useful with embedded property data.
