7 Steps to Open BIM with Vectorworks Architect
The Path to BIM—3 Days
With BIM (Building Information Modelling) becoming more and more talked about and increasingly required for some projects, Vectorworks users can be reassured that Vectorworks Architect 2015 offers them a route to increasing BIM capabilities. The level of BIM used/required is still at the user's discretion and Vectorworks implementation is designed to preserve freedom of process for an architect practice, whilst enabling them to make the transition to a BIM environment.
Based on the "7 Steps to BIM" approach, Design Software Solutions has developed a number of workshops/training sessions to enable Vectorworks users to understand how their workflow can incorporate BIM processes. The initial stage involves an understanding of how the practice is working currently, what elements of Vectorworks are being fully exploited, or where best practice could be incorporated. To this end, we have created a Training Needs Analysis Questionnaire which helps you and us to understand how you are currently working.
From there, referencing the "7 Steps to BIM" we can start to help you understand the appropriate tools and workflows within Vectorworks Architect to help your transition to BIM. However, it's not all about tools, it's also about people, process and sharing information - and our approach ensures that these aspects are also reviewed.
In addition, for those charged with developing BIM capabilities within the practice, we offer a 1 day BIM Administrator's course.
