Model Integration and Management

BIM for Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Curriculum

Learning Objectives

After completing this lesson, students will be able to:

  • Understand the importance of creating a composite model to facilitate whole project viewing.
  • Describe the options available and tradeoffs of exporting and importing models using different file formats.
  • Apply the concept of transforms to align separate models.
  • Appreciate the value of creating and saving scene views to communicate design intent and document the model evolution through the project stages.
  • Interrogate the composite model to explore how the integrated models relate to the whole. 
  • Create sets of elements that cut across all models and develop a model hierarchy for the integrated composite model.
