A BIM example

Not wanting to be criticised for being to theoretical, this video was made directly from a 3d model, from where i also extracted all the technical drawings and numerical data.

It is an entry for a design competition over a elementary school in Seia, Portugal.

It represents about 3 weeks of intensive work, one person.

Nice work
1 What software did you use for the animation
2 How was the time split (texturing v setting up the paths v rendering etc)
3 What is the music?

Thanks!

Archicad for modelation, Artlantis Studio for animation.

Texturing: half an hour top's - using "postcard" ability in Artlantis.

Light and path settings: about 5 minutes for each clip.

Rendering: from 15 to 25 hours for each clip, 3 weeks in all (mostly night batch rendering).

You are wellcome.

Have a look at Exactal Costx

Bit more than a dialog but it's combining Q/S and BIM to cost from the model or DWF/dwg

Close but no cigar.
Still, it´s pretty impressive.

Miguel,
Nice to see some of your work. Have you looked into Revit and it's quantity takeoffs and costing capabilities. I am no 'company man' but since Autodesk coined the term "BIM" to describe Revit, it is naturally the only solution (at least at this time) that satisfies all things BIM.

Wellcome.

I have been monitoring Revit's progress quite closely. It has great potential, but it also has a number of things that I dislike.

That is not to say that I would not change software, if i saw there was an advantage in it.

To say that Revit is the best BIM software only on Autodesk coining the term is a non sequitur.

Still, Revit has been great for us ArchiCAD users (and vice versa) because it forces Graphisoft - now Nemetschek - to put an extra effort into R&D.

Great job, Miguel!

BTW - to clear the history - BIM was coined by Autodesk, and thanks to its marketing prowess, was accepted by Bentley, and all the others. Graphisoft produces the original BIM - in the original terminology Virtual Building - software, known as Archicad, for almost 25 years (will be early June).

Never believe all you read on the Web ;)
