BIM explained in videos


Open-BIM-explainer

So what is BIM? And why should it be so hard to explain?

There are several companies and organisations that have tried to make the introduction to BIM easy and clear, but most have failed – it’s so easy to make BIM way to complex for a Newbie to get the overall picture before the headache kicks in. Just look at
this Youtube search – most of it is nonsense.

But luckily some have succeeded and we have listed a few links to what we think are the best BIM introduction videos around at this time.

What openBIM does for you

Probably the best introduction to openBIM around. Nicely made, well produced and just the right length to get into the subject. Made by BuildingSMART Norway – remember to support the open standards.

Autodesk BIM 101: Intro to Building Information Modeling

Although a promotional video, with flashy clips, and annoying music, this video gives a nice quick introduction to the basics of BIM. Remember Autodesk has some great BIM products, but so does a lot of other companies.

BIMbyen-DDB-Animation

This is one of the ‘old’ explainer videos (Made in 2010 – that’s old in the BIM world!), and a personal favourite. It’s made by students on the danish BIM knowledge platform BIMbyen. It very fine, but sorry, it’s in danish.

Velkommen til Byggeri 2.0

Denne blog er startet og drevet af stifterne bag 3dbyggeri danmark.

Bloggen opstod fordi vi i 3dbyggeri danmark følte at der er behov for en mere livlig og frigjort debat i byggebranchen. Den er et supplement til initiativer fra støvsparkerne, som vi også er en del af. Vi debatterer digital projektering, krav, teknik og brugervenlighed.
