In the world of modern construction, the need for innovative approaches in design and management is becoming more and more obvious. Therefore, BIM-Technologies have become essential and are used for efficient planning, design, construction and operation.
However, new challenges arise during the creation of a high-quality BIM-Project that need optimising and reducing the development time while maintaining high quality.
One of these challenges of optimising BIM processes is creating families that make up a BIM Model. Sometimes, creating families is a difficult and time-consuming process, especially when working on big projects, where a specialist needs to create a lot of new families or update the existing ones. In a situation like this, a designer dreams to have a family automatically created in just a couple of clicks. And our BIM-Team has solved this issue.
This is where programming comes into play.
We were contacted by a customer who wanted to automate the process of creating LOD500 lift equipment families, preparing detailed design documentation and providing it to the designer. Thus, the designer will have an interest in using our customer’s equipment in the project, as the time-consuming family creation process is eliminated and performed in a couple of clicks.
Thanks to the time saved to create families the time for project development is reduced as well. This increases the manufacturing plant’s sales, due to the fact that the designer will embed his equipment in the project.
