How do I work with BIM/REVIT?

BIM is a working method in which different disciplines in the construction industry work together integrally in a 3D Building Information Model (BIM). Here you can find out how to work with BIM/REVIT.

The standardisation committee of the US National BIM Standard describes BIM as:

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a digital representation of all the physical and functional characteristics of a building. A BIM model is a shared source of knowledge or file containing information about the building that serves as a reliable basis for decision-making throughout the building life cycle. In other words, from the initial design, through construction, during management and right up to the demolition of the building.

A basic principle of BIM is that different parties and teams collaborate at different stages of the building lifecycle, with the provision, retrieval and processing of information in BIM serving to support and facilitate the roles of the various stakeholders.

How to add a Compact Folding Door to your BIM file

Would you like to add the Compact folding door to your BIM project, but don’t know how? Now you need a ready-made BIM/REVIT file to work with. Rolflex has developed a 3D file of the Compact folding door that you can download. This file is available in various formats, depending on which Revit package you use. You can download the file and then add it to your own BIM file.

The requirements for BIM

In order to be able to work well with BIM/REVIT, there are some requirements that must be fulfilled beforehand.

  • a common digital display
  • the information in the model is actually interoperable, i.e. different computers (software) can exchange and use the files
  • the exchange is based on open standards
  • the exchange must be possible in the language of the project participants

In practice, BIM therefore depends on the perspective of the respective process participants:

  • In the overall project, BIM stands for information management: data that contributes to the project and is shared by everyone involved. BIM provides the right person with the right information at the right time.
  • For project stakeholders, BIM stands for an interoperable project delivery process: jointly defining how individual teams work and how many teams collaborate to conceptualise, design, build and operate the building.
  • For the design team, BIM stands for integral design: utilising technological solutions, stimulating creativity, providing more feedback and thus encouraging teams to perform better.
