BIM to CAD: Integrated Delivery of Bridge Projects in 2D and 3D
Originally aired on September 17, 2020
In this webinar we discuss an integrated CAD and BIM approach to project delivery, whichallows engineers to work in a 2D CAD environment to deliver both 3D BIM models and high-quality 2D deliverables from the same workflow.
Proceeding from a 3D model created and detailed in past webinars, our engineers will showhow to create precisely formatted CAD sheets for delivery in multiple common formats todifferent clients. Using a 3D model to drive 2D sheets augments the existing plans production process with the best features of 3D modeling, including intelligent rebar detailing, conflict detection, and quantities/geometry reporting. It streamlines QA/QC by deriving all plans, quantities, and reinforcement schedules from the data and geometry contained in the BIM model, ensuring that deliverables are consistent and responsive to change.
This approach brings advantages to project delivery such as:
- Advanced modeling in 3D using a CAD-driven workflow
- Efficient production of deliverables
- Saving time on late-stage QA/QC and change management
- Creating value by preparing .dgn and .dwg deliverables
After this webinar, you will understand to manage rebar detailing, conflict detection,quantities and geometry reporting, directly from a BIM model in one workflow.
