Are your BIM tools not smart enought? If you think that, then check out this post from AECbytes Blog
This next post is a little longer but completly worth the read! Anthony from practical BIM talks about how “my BIM is not necessarily your BIM based on our workflows (ie Design vs Construction vs survey vs FM).
Now for some construction app news from the ConAppGuru.
If you ar having issues with wireframe view in Navsiworks Simulate, check out this post from IMAGINiT Support Blog.
