2011 NASCC Highlight: BIM Model Exchange and Review

The upcoming NASCC Conference (to be held May 11 - 14 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) features two sessions that will demonstrate how models can be developed by a structural engineer and shared with a steel fabricator, as well as using the model for review of shop drawings as it happens.

The first session shows techniques required to prepare a model for use by the steel fabricator, and will conclude with the transfer of the model electronically to Douglas Steel so that their detailer can translate and use the model for ordering material and detailing. This session will run from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 12.

In the second session, the steps used by the detailer will be shown interactively while it happens; after detailing, the model will be transmitted and the engineer will demonstrate the methods utilized to review the model. This session will run from 4:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. on Thursday, May 12.

The speakers for both sessions are James A. Corsiglia with Harley Ellis Devereaux and Richard Steffens with Douglas Steel.
