We’ve been talking about leveraging BIM data for pre-construction and construction coordination tasks for years, but have never aggregated the juiciest bits into video format. So, for those of you who are Virtual Design & Construction specialists, consider taking 15 minutes out of your busy schedules to learn how Ideate BIMLink can utilize the BIM data in Revit to expedite pre-construction and construction tasks.
With Ideate BIMLink and Revit your team can:
- Export point data from Revit for in-field coordination of foundation work, complex structural layout, or even duct hangar layout to ensure accuracy and expedite 4D modeling.
- Import point (CSV) data from a total station into Revit for improved accuracy between the as-built and designed models.
- Publish critical coordinate data inside of Revit for improved coordination across the team.
You can try Ideate BIMLink by downloading a free trial.
