Architecture | Streamlining Workflows for Data-Driven Documentation
Tuesday, June 15 | 2 pm EST
Spend more time designing and less time documenting by transitioning from a 2D to a 3D workflow. The benefits go beyond visualization aspects of 3D modeling. Creating a Building Information Model (BIM) will allow you to largely automate your workflow because BIM objects have built-in data that can be extracted using documentation tools. Sarah Barrett, Associate AIA and Senior Architect Product Specialist of Vectorworks will be explaining the purposes of the tools as well as how to efficiently document your model. Join this webinar to maximize your data automation and leverage smart tools for documentation and drawing.
This course is approved for 1 AIA LU elective. Also, attendees who are members of Canadian Associations AIBC, AAA, AANB, ALBNL, and NSAA are eligible for 1 core learning hour/unit.
