The Use of Accessories & Fasteners in Wooden Structures Using Insert Elements
When we increase the level of development (LOD) of BIM model, by expanding it with more details such as structural connectors and other accessories, we face a dilemma. Even with repetitive use of structures and inserting 3D components, which are detailing project, will take a lot of time, on the other hand, there may appear a need to count the amount of elements used in the design, graphic presentation and analysis of the feasibility of connectors.
