12d Model BIM Course

This one day Digital Engineering course teaches 12d designers how to create and manipulate BIM elements in 12d Model. We will cover the creation of 3d solids from the parametric design, the addition and manipulation of metadata, and techniques for collaboration with other disciplines.

Prerequisites: A good working knowledge of 12d Model or attendance at the one-day Introduction to 12d Model course.

The 12d Model BIM course will cover:

Working with Attributes

  • Viewing, creating and editing attributes in the String Attribute panel
  • Exchanging attribute data with spreadsheet
  • Using the Attribute Manipulator (worked examples and exercises)

Modelling Services and Clash Detection

  • Modelling design services: draping strings and manually setting pipe size
  • Modelling design services using a map file to set size
  • Modelling design services using a snippet in the MTF
  • Modelling surveyed services
  • Using 12d Model’s Clash Detection tools
  • Modelling chambers and utility pits

Import BIM data

  • Import FBX
  • Import DWG
  • Import KML
  • Import IFC
  • Use of chain to streamline import

TriMesh Creation

  • Trimesh creation of pavements. We will use a pavement that has already been created (pavement creation is not part of this course)
  • Trimesh creation from 12d objects

Export BIM data

  • Export data to IFC
  • Export 3d PDF
  • Export KML
