MSF21122 - Model-Based Steel Fabrication: Connecting the Model to Fabrication (and Back) When 3D modeling replaced 2D CAD, only the detailing method changed—not the way data gets transferred to steel fabricators (much of the knowledge in the model is lost). So, while detailers benefited, steel fabricators are still getting the same information in the same format. But now it’s possible for fabricators to extract better information from the Advance Steel software model. American Institute of Steel Construction’s IFC for Steel Fabrication Specification is available directly from Advance Steel software to feed fabricators’ production-management systems and workstations. The new workflow involves sending a single file that a fabricator can use to extract all the information needed for fabrication, including 2D and 3D views, connections, and material information. From there, it’s possible to manage and organize the project ready for fabrication, optimize material, and create the data required to drive and track computer numerical control or manual workstations. This class will work through the process and review the benefits of model-based fabrication. This session features Advance Steel and BIM 360 Glue. 60 minutes Industry talk Chris Moor

MSF21521 - Precast-Concrete Construction—Why Should I Use Revit? The delivery of precast concrete structures is facing a dramatic change in how these structures are documented, fabricated, and constructed. Due to the presence of highly effective 2D tools, the precast industry has been slow to adopt the use of Revit software. At the same time, other structural systems that have adopted Building Information Modeling (BIM) have been able to achieve certain advantages in the marketplace. However, unique qualities of precast construction—most notably the speed of construction and the turnkey nature of the delivery of the structure—create the ability for a precast concrete manufacturer to gain a significant advantage in the marketplace through the use of Revit software and BIM in general. We will discuss the use of Revit software in precast construction, and explore how we can use it to service many aspects of the precast concrete process while improving service to owners and developers. Attendees will learn about Revit model-creation strategies and workflows and third-party tools that they can use in this process.

MSF21844 - How, When, and Where Can Handheld Scanners Be Used in Construction Should you consider adding this tool to your workflow? While there are some very powerful laser scanners that are accurate and fast for larger spaces, and photogrammetry that is cost-effective but not as accurate, there is a growing number of more-affordable handheld scanners that can be capitalized on to augment the as-built conditions, and in some cases they are more effective the other alternatives. We will discuss the current and forthcoming technology that may augment current scanning methods. This class will address the following questions: What is a reasonable expectation from a handheld scanner and return on investment? What is the workflow for maximizing the scanner’s use for as-built and quality assurance / quality control uses? How can we best capitalize on scanning at this scale? When is the right time to consider handheld versus other scanning technology? Where can this scanning method be most effective?

SD22317 - Moving to the Cloud for Your Database-Dependent AutoCAD Add-ins Many AutoCAD software add-ins depend on a database to store relevant information. For years, databases such as Microsoft Access were used to give multiple users access to the same data. At some point, it may have become necessary to move on to a more powerful platform such as SQL Server or Oracle. Now moving to a cloud-based database such as Microsoft Azure SQL database is easy enough to demonstrate the entire process from beginning to end in a 90-minute class. Developers no longer need to wait for their IT department to create a new virtual server and install software before they can begin work on a new project. For literally pennies a day, a developer can create a new cloud-based database that is visible to anyone running their software without worrying about VPNs, firewalls, and an approval process that takes months to complete.

DV21960 - Viewing a Space Before It's a Space—Virtual Reality for Design Verification Virtual reality (VR) isn't always for architects to show off their pretty designs! Viewing mechanical and electrical rooms before they’re constructed, and before equipment is purchased, is important from a constructability standpoint. Just because something fits in a space, doesn't mean the design works. Having a contractor, operations manager, or client walk-through and experience the space well before construction can help clarify the design intent. They can give insight on design “flaws” and layout preferences, which will help the designer to produce an efficient and clean design. This class will showcase case studies in which a design team at MCW Consultants Ltd. used VR to enhance and validate their design intent in a number of mechanical spaces.
