A successful BIM project will always be defined by its data richness which should be leveraged with the model workability and consistency. Workable model should be clean and smartly organized by not losing necessary data richness. Consistency among elements in a project makes the BIM project cost effective.
BIM solution Wall+ for Autodesk® Revit® is a perfect example for automated framed building design. This application allows Revit® users to create their sustainable buildings excluding all the dirty drafting work from their everyday processes.
That is great news! Our team is happy to announce that one more useful product refilled our tools4revit© product group. Our newest Autodesk® Revit® extension Excel2Revit allows you to quickly insert MS Excel data into your Revit Architecture, Revit MEP and Revit Structure projects. This plug-in keeps the stable link between MS Excel software and Autodesk Revit project.
Sustainable design is the factually loudest buzzword in an AEC industry. It is actually a very good trend because an impact of the construction sector to the climate change is the second largest in Europe (Eurostat, 2013). That means there is a need for a major change.
