BIM for Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Curriculum

Key Terms

The following key terms were used in this lesson:

Redline Tag

A common method for marking up a viewpoint to report a potential issue. Adding redline tags automates viewpoint creation and provides a method for reviewers to comment freely on the model.

Hard Clash

A clash defined by two objects actually intersecting.

Clearance Clash

A clash type occurring when two objects come within a specified distance of each other. Selecting this clash type also detects any hard clashes.

Duplicate Clash

A clash type characterized by two objects that are identical in type and position. This type of clash testing may be used to clash an entire model against itself to detect of any items that may have duplicated by mistake.
