BIM Curriculum Unit 5 – Using BIM in Integrated Project Delivery

Unit 5 Lesson 1 Tutorial 1: Creating a Composite Model

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Export model files to different file format supported for transferring model information to Navisworks® Manage (including NWC, DWG, and IFC).
  • Set the appropriate global options for working effectively in Navisworks Manage.
  • Open and append multiple model files to create a single composite model.
  • Transform individual models to provide the proper alignment and positioning in the composite model.
  • Export the Autodesk Revit MEP plumbing model named MEP_Plumbing.rvt to a NWC file using the Autodesk Navisworks2010 Export Utility Add-in. Make sure that Geometry Compression is not enabled in the export settings.
  • Export the Revit MEP lighting model named MEP_Lighting.rvt to an IFC file.
  • Open the composite model file named Unit5_Lesson1_Exercise1_Start.nwf, then append the two exported files—MEP_Plumbing.nwc and MEP_Lighting.ifc—from the previous steps.
  • Adjust the offset of the MEP_Lighting.ifc to bring it into alignment with the composite model. Select the model in the selection tree, then click the Item Tools tab, and choose Move. Transform the model -20 feet (-6.10 m) in the x-direction by entering -20 into the pull-down menu

Unit 5 Lesson 1 Tutorial 2: Exploring a Composite Model

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Interact with the composite model in the scene view using the orbit, walk-through, and sectioning tools.
  • Explore the hierarchy of elements in the composite model in the Selection Tree.
  • Manipulate the appearance of elements in the scene view using the Hide, Require, and Override commands.
  • Create and save viewpoints of interest that feature different systems or aspects of the model.
  • Publish the model as a compressed .nwd file for sharing with others.

Unit 5 Lesson 1 Tutorial 3: Defining Sets of Model Elements

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Interrogate the composite model to find particular elements.
  • Define selection sets of like elements that include elements from several of the appended models.
  • Define search criteria to select sets of elements that share common properties or parameter values.
  • Merge previously defined selection sets and organizing the sets into folders.

Unit 5 Lesson 2 Tutorial 1: Reviewing and marking Up

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Create viewpoints that effectively communicate issues needing resolution.
  • Measure, tag, redline, and add comments to a saved viewpoint.
  • Manage issues through searching comments and tags based on issue status or author.

Unit 5 Lesson 2 Tutorial 2: Performing clash Detection

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Design clash detection tests to look for conflicts between different pairings of element types using the selection tree and set manager.
  • Specify different types of class detection tests to look for hard, clearance, and duplicate clash types.
  • Use batch tests to evaluate and verify design iterations.
  • Save and export clash tests for use on other projects.

Unit 5 Lesson 2 Tutorial 3: Creating Digital Requests for Information

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Explore the results of the clash tests as lists and as scene views.
  • Manage and organize clash test results by the cause of the problem or the discipline responsible for resolving the problem.
  • Differentiate between valid and invalid clashes.
  • Tune the appearance of the viewpoints in order to highlight the essential elements shown.
  • Creating clash reports using various output formats options (Viewpoints, HTML, TEXT, or XML).

Unit 5 Lesson 3 Tutorial 1: Creating a 4D Simulation

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Link a schedule file to the TimeLiner tool and generate the hierarchy of tasks.
  • Create selection sets and search sets to facilitate linking model elements to the schedule tasks.
  • Specify simulation settings and run a 4D simulation

Unit 5 Lesson 3 Tutorial 2: Identifying Time-Based Clashes

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Reveal a time-based clash by linking a clash test to the project schedule.
  • Add schedule tasks to accurately reflect the existence of temporary construction objects, and attach model geometry to that task.
  • Run a time-based clash test to confirm the elimination of the time-based clash.
  • Run a 4D simulation that includes the appearance and disappearance of temporary object to the project.

Unit 5 Lesson 4 Tutorial 1: using Model Images to Enhance Communication

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Reveal a time-based clash by linking a clash test to the project schedule.
  • Add schedule tasks to accurately reflect the existence of temporary construction objects, and attach model geometry to that task.
  • Run a time-based clash test to confirm the elimination of the time-based clash.
  • Run a 4D simulation that includes the appearance and disappearance of temporary object to the project.

Unit 5 Lesson 4 Tutorial 2: Creating Animations

In this exercise, students will learn how to:

  • Record a real-time walk-through of the project using different effects and perspectives.
  • Program simple object animations to heighten the model interactivity.
  • Associate object animations with events that can be triggered by the user navigation.
  • Create scripts that play animations during the course of a real-time walk-through.
