BIM Curriculum Unit 2 – BIM Design Process

Unit 2 Lesson 1 Tutorial 1: Defining and Displaying Areas and Area Plans

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Create gross building type area plans with custom area type parameters and color fills.
  • Generate area schedules with desired fields, formatting, sorting, and grouping.
  • Display the area plans with legends and schedules on sheets.

Unit 2 Lesson 1 Tutorial 2: Defining and Displaying Rooms and Room Plans

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Add room objects and defining new room object parameter types.
  • Generate and configure room schedules that group and tally across different parameters.
  • Display the room plans and schedules on sheets for sharing.
Unit 2 Lesson 2 Tutorial 1: Phased New Construction

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Enable phases and define the necessary phases for a given project.
  • Set up phase-specific views with phase filters applied in order to accurately represent the state of project at any given time.
  • Assign phase properties of model elements to properly represent when each structure will be built relative to the others.
  • Adjust graphics overrides for phase filters to display as desired.
Unit 2 Lesson 2 Tutorial 2: Phased Renovations

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Set up the phase-specific views in order to model construction for a renovation or remodel.
  • Perform the demolition operations on model elements to make way for the elements in the new construction.
  • Create model elements that have correctly defined phase parameters.
Unit 2 Lesson 3 Tutorial 1: Defining Option Sets and Options within Each Set

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Define option sets for the major design decisions and design options within each set.
  • Copy model elements into design options.
  • Experiment with design variations, by adding, deleting, or modifying the elements in each design option.
Unit 2 Lesson 3 Tutorial 2: Using Option Sets to Compare Interior and Room Design Alternatives

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Define option sets for the interior design alternatives and creating design options within each set.
  • Experiment with interior design variations, by adding, deleting, or modifying the elements in each design option.
  • Accept a chosen design option and discarding the remaining options.
Unit 2 Lesson 4 Tutorial 1: Creating Annotated Section Views

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Create building sections showing an overview of the interaction between building elements.
  • Use a building section as a map referencing more detailed views.
  • Create wall sections to display typical wall assemblies and connections.
Unit 2 Lesson 4 Tutorial 2: Creating Details and Callouts

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Use callouts to create detailed model views and adding annotations to these views.
  • Create drafting views to illustrate standard details and present views independent of the model.
  • Use callouts to reference drafting views.
  • Understand how the information presented a view tag is updated as views are placed on sheets.
Unit 2 Lesson 5 Tutorial 1: Creating and Presenting Models through Schedules

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Create schedules of model elements such as doors, windows, roofs, walls, curtain walls, furniture objects, and so on.
  • Configure schedules by changing their fields, sorting logic, grouping, and format.
  • Place schedules into printable sheets either alone or with appropriate graphical displays.
  • Export the schedules in common formats, such as delimited text files, which can be used in Microsoft® Excel®.

Unit 2 Lesson 5 Tutorial 2: Enhancing and Adding Information to Schedules

In this exercise, students learn how to:

  • Add parameters to building elements to capture additional design information needed for analysis.
  • Define new parameters as calculated values.
  • Use formulas to compute values based on other parameters.
