What is BIM?

What is BIM | BIM scheme | AGACAD

BIM is a process that enhances collaboration between architects, designers, engineers, and construction professionals by enabling multiple teams to work on the same 3D model of an asset at the same time. In other words, it allows for concurrent design, planning, and construction work to be performed by those BIM actors.

By using BIM companies do not have to continually send various edited models with appended information; instead, they can do it in the same file, and the rest of the participants receive updated data timely.

At the end of February, AGACAD will be heading to Louisville, KY to exhibit at The Precast Show – the largest trade show in North America exclusively dedicated to precast.

When: February 28 – March 2, 2019
Where: Kentucky International Convention Center, booth #789

Last year in Denver was our first time exhibiting at TPS, so we’re fired up about returning to this outstanding event to showcase our software to the US precast industry, especially since becoming an Autodesk AEC Industry Partner – specifically for precast – in October 2018.

Manning our booth will be Valensas and Jan, our BIM application engineer and project manager, who can share how our Precast Concrete BIM Solution for Revit is driving the precast industry forward. We're especially hoping to meet our existing users face-to-face to talk about your further needs and expectations.

We're hosting a webinar to highlight a new function of our Framing software: automated framing of wood or metal floors. Whether your floors are simple or complex, you can frame them with speed and ease. We're here to show you how in this webinar!

We kindly invite all current users of our Framing software as well as potential users to attend this half-hour webinar. Come hear about the latest features that make framing floors in Revit easier than ever.

In this webinar about framing timber or light-gauge steel floors, you’ll see the entire workflow: from having a simple floor modeled in Revit to auto-generating multilayer floor framing using Wood Framing Floor+. Not enough?

This Nordic engineering firm says AGACAD’s BIM software has brought big efficiency gains for its precast concrete and wood framing projects, helped it win new clients, and enabled the company to handle more complex projects.

Client Profile

JPS-Konsult AB, based in Vrigstad, Sweden, specializes in the design of precast concrete and wood-frame buildings, mainly for residential use.

Business Need

While upgrading itself from 2D to 3D design to be more modern and competitive in the market, JPS-Konsult ran into productivity issues with its new Autodesk® Revit® software. Revit required so much time-consuming manual work that the company was tempted to go back to AutoCAD®.

“We tried to make shop drawings with plain Revit, and soon realized that there had to be a better way,” recalls CEO Johannes Svensson.

So the firm began looking for ways to get all the great benefits of BIM for its precast concrete and timber projects but without having to waste so much valuable time. Specifically, it needed automated view layouts, dimensioning and material take-off, plus ways to quickly insert elements to achieve greater detailing. This functionality had to be easy to learn and use.

Svensson says he did a major search and concluded that AGACAD had the most powerful solutions for his needs. It’s also the only one with a software portfolio broad enough to support both wood and concrete projects.

Thank you.
