bimdesignYou Really Don’t Have to Lose Your Design Work!

Many architecture firms are frustrated by not seeing the increased efficiencies promised by BIM and Revit. In this seminar we will examine why firms are reluctant to use BIM in design, how that affects the efficiencies promised by BIM and how to successfully implement BIM in the design phase. This will include a review of “SketchUp Style” BIM modeling tools, how to integrate SketchUp and Rhino into the BIM process, how to create sketch renderings and how to tap into the vast world of rich object content.
