WHY DO WE NEED TO SWITCH…
WHY DO WE NEED TO SWITCH FROM CAD TO BIM?
The architectural and engineering industries are rapidly adapting to new technology and enhanced data collection. Both CAD and BIM continue to grow in popularity because they meet different needs and solve different problems. However, BIM and CAD represent two fundamentally different approaches to building design and documentation. So, why do we need to switch?
If productivity, cost effectiveness and aesthetic is important to your project, then you have to consider the “switch”.
Making the switch from CAD to BIM is a big leap – but one in the right direction. Make sure you choose the best solution for your needs and consider several things that you need to do before you switch from CAD to BIM.
Your choice of BIM software is crucial.
At Close System, we use a tool which you can combine with a range of rendering and virtual reality software packages to create complex 3D models.
BIM encompasses all aspects of your firm’s workflow, so everybody needs to undergo training.
