As a shared knowledge resource, Building Information Modeling (BIM) is meant to cross physical and industry boundaries in order to bring professionals the information they need to work together. However, in an industry constantly growing in best practices and technology, and as competitive as it is creative, creating standardizations to make these resources work isn’t always simple.

Two years ago, our distributor in Japan, A&A Co. Ltd., shared a case study that demonstrated a high-value BIM workflow between Vectorworks Architect and FlowDesigner, a 3D simulation and analysis software for airflow, temperature, and contamination distribution developed by Advanced Knowledge Laboratory. Recently, we ran an updated test of that connection and received positive results. We’re pleased to present a summary of those findings below.
