It is conducted on a digital platform which has the spatial qualities that are measurable comprehensive, accessible and durable. Using the BIM software all elements are loaded with data to help in obtaining fire rating, cost, manufacturer, count, and just about any other metadata you can imagine. All of which are put in a single database. The software is then used to create a 3D model that is used to generate traditional building abstractions. This includes plans, sections, details, elevations and schedules.

9 Though there might be a slight difference between the CAD and BIM software especially when coming up with 2D software. The information can be assembled in one location under centralized database model. As a result, they both share documents that are interdependent as well as share intelligence. In addition, it is also easier to make a change to the CAD model using the BIM software. That is for any change in the project, the system will initiate change on all the relevant views as well as documents of the project. This change usually happens in sections, floor plans as well as schedule tables. On the other hand, there is also the AutoCAD software which was developed using a computer-aided design system. These help in drawing as well as simulate complex flat and dimensional constructions. It is also the basis for specialized software products that includes houses, cities, robot, machines, building construction, utility and communication, roads and streets, maps among objects design. The Revit Autodesk Navit software also relates to the ArchiCAD graphics software constructor which is designed specifically to address the problem in the areas of architecture, engineering and construction industry. Using this technology the CAD users are able to manipulate data using the Revit standards. The change is done automatically in which the users of the software are able to streamline the design process. Other suitable softwares that are compatible with the CAD software includes computer programs such as Solidworks, FreeCad and Kompas 3D were taken. This is because they all share the same parameters. This includes: coordinates of points, lengths of edges, angles, diameters of circles, a radius of ellipses. In that regard, the design of the engineering model can

As a result, the software shares the same interface whose results are realized in almost the same ways. The only difference is that some may lack the right library fasteners, which may be a problem especially if there is only an English version of the program. This is because some of the programs may be designed for the foreign language user, hence it may be only oriented for them. It is also important that when creating the drawings, one should consider the associated problems. This may be related to the incomprehensibility of the principle of work of some features. Hence the programs should be adjusted to make significant improvements.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
