Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Introducing building information modeling (BIM), part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
So I know you're probably anxious to get into Revit right away,…but before we do, let's talk about a few high-level concepts first.…For starters, just what is BIM?…Well BIM stands for Building Information Modeling and it's a term that was…coined a few years back by Autodesk to basically describe the process of…creating virtual models that represent building facilities.…Now Revit is often heavily touted as purpose-built for building information…modeling, and this is true, but that often leads to confusion that somehow Revit…and BIM equal the same thing.…
Revit and BIM are not the same thing. Revit is a tool to help us achieve BIM.…And what BIM is, is a process that we follow to create building model data that…is two things: coordinated and computable.…Those are the two most important tenants of BIM.…If all of the parts and pieces that make up your BIM project are fully…coordinated with one another, and don't require any manual updates to keep them…in sync, and if you've got a robust rich data store of information that can be…
