One of the key components of BIM is the ability to detect clashes, which are design coordination issues that result in the inability to construct a building as drawn. The use of 3-dimensional drawings allows contractors –and software- to detect if key building components are intersecting before it’s about to be installed in the field. Autodesk BIM 360 has recently updated its clash detection abilities within its Model Coordination module more easily and efficiently within its platform.Read More
One of the biggest advantages of using a project management platform, whether it be Autodesk BIM 360, Procore, or another, is the ability to have access to all project information on the go. For construction tech companies, making a simple mobile app that’s intuitive and easy to use is key. Autodesk is simplifying their available apps and has recently released a new unified BIM 360 mobile app.Read More
Just because construction companies are wising up and beginning to implement project management software on their projects doesn’t mean that traditional programs, like Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, and Word will no longer be needed. Recognizing that fact, Autodesk BIM 360 has announced an integration with Microsoft Office 365 which should make users very happy.Read More
I’ve mentioned this several times before, but the single greatest thing technology companies can do for the construction industry is to allow cross-platform integration. That’s essentially what construction is at its core, anyway, a bunch of different entities working together for a common goal. Autodesk’s BIM 360, which already integrates 60+ different softwares into its platform, has recently added NoteVault to its list.Read More
10 years ago, the most computer knowledge any construction company would require of its applicants was a basic understanding of Microsoft Excel or a scheduling software. Now, construction companies are finally getting wise to the fact that project management and document management software like Procore, Bluebeam, and PlanGrid can provide an efficiency boost to their projects. Because of this, many employers now have job openings that require knowledge of their software of choice.
If you’ve never used that specific software, how can you make yourself eligible for that role?Read More
