9 Major Take Away“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not one bit simpler. ”Albert Einstein
10 TYPES OF BIM MODELS CLASH DETECTION VALUE ENGINEERING DIM. CONTROL DOCUMENTATIONFABRICATIONFIELD BIM
12 LOD Should Clearly Defined the X,Y,Z origin LOD and OriginLOD Should Clearly Defined the X,Y,Z origin
13 Ikerd’s Ideas for Structural Design LOD Avoid re-modelingClearly Define the local X,Y,Z OriginModel Content Shown on Typical 1/8" PlanModel Structure as it will be ConstructedDo Not Duplicate Model Content (A,S & M)Use Shared Model for 2 Discipline content
14 Ikerd’s Ideas for Structural Design LOD Don't Assume Construction MethodsMatch BIM material w/ specificationsEngineers Open & Review their BIMNot All Steel, Concrete is StructuralTrain inside & out on Structural BIM LOD
16 AIA E202™–2008 LOD 350? Fully coordinated federated model? 100: Many items modeled. Masses & sq.ft.200: Geometry is established but no object data300: Engineered sizes of objects are established350? Fully coordinated federated model?400: Shop drawing & committed purchase price500: As Built Model, complete.
17 Why Define a Structural BIM LOD of 350 There’s many a slip betweenthe cup and the lip
