Building information modeling (BIM) is a digital paradigm shift, in many ways similar to that of the CAD revolution of the 1980s. What is BIM? How is it different from CAD? Why does an architecture student need to know about it? This course provides an introduction to BIM from the viewpoint of the architect (Revit Architecture), engineer (Revit Structure and Revit Mechanical), and contractor (Navisworks, Bluebeam). Depending on time, other software such as Fuzor or Stingray (BIM in a game engine), Fusion (rapid prototyping), FormIt (conceptual modeling), or Dynamo (visual programming) will be explored. Guest lecturers will speak on current digital issues facing the architecture profession. Please feel free to contact the instructor for more information.
