You've heard of BIM (Building Information Modeling). Perhaps you are using Revit, ArchiCAD or Vectorworks in your office. Perhaps you are not.
If you aren't, perhaps it is because you don't have the time or incentive to learn an entirely new technology. Perhaps you have considered switching to this technology but just can't figure out where to start. Or perhaps you don't see any benefit to using one of these programs for your particular project type.
I can think of many reasons, but what is your reason for not using a BIM-capable software product? Let me know in the comments section below!
Switching to a new technology platform takes a lot of time, energy and money. For the small firm or solo practitioner, that time and money is disproportionately large compared with what a large firm would spend for the same transition.
However, if are a solo architect and you've been considering switching to a BIM system or want to hear some examples from architects that have used these software packages for small projects, you will want to tune into the AIA's recorded webinar:
