BIM is one of the ways architects, landscape architects, and other AEC professionals realize their visions — with accurate and data-rich models. These models offer greater coordination, bringing in the expertise of everyone involved in the project.
Assael Architecture knows a thing or two about the time commitment that comes with the design process for projects and the struggle to do it well among teams due to working in multiple platforms. With Vectorworks’ all-in-one design, Assael has been able to complete project after project quickly and efficiently.
At the intersection of design and construction comes the connection between Vectorworks and Bluebeam Revu.

For many architecture students around the world, there is no chapter in their textbooks that describes how to execute a BIM workflow. Much of the information that they receive comes from different sources and can even be contradictory. That’s why Carlo Galatioto, a recent graduate student from the Bern University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland with no experience with in-depth BIM workflows, decided to break the mold, using his final thesis as an opportunity to explore the practical use of BIM.

As part of our efforts to help designers increase productivity through Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows, we are excited to announce a new partnership with Datacubist Oy, the creators of simplebim, Now, designers who use Vectorworks Architect can export their IFC-STP files and import them into the simplebim application to trim unnecessary data, as well as validate, edit, and add non-geometric data directly within the IFC file. Simplebim is a BIM software platform that enhances IFC data exchange between AECO professionals.

BuildingSMART International, a non-profit organization that promotes and supports the use of Open BIM standards for AEC industries, is accepting submissions for its inaugural Business Gain Through Open Technology award. Entries, due August 31, must demonstrate how using Open BIM standards improves interoperability and offers major business gains to all participants involved in the building process from the designer to the contractor to the owner.
