BIM with Google Sketchup
BIM, Google SketchUp a 3D modeling interface and the ability to assign characteristics to objects in the design. A lot of designers prefer Google SketchUp early on because it’s such a facile tool. BIM tools mainstream design now has at least some capability to import models from SketchUp and to export simplified models out to it. That capability will soon carry more significance for projects because expects to release a SketchUp plug-in for the powerful energy plus modeling engine.
Google Sketchup is a very popular tool with designers during the early phases of a project, but the lines blur when to stop modeling in Sketchup and start designing in Building Information Modeling. This results in re-work and a duplicated effort, the designer continues to model, but so does the team.
SketchUp are especially useful for every design, a smart team working on sustainable design will start looking at energy models before even designing the building. Building information modeling through standard exchanges they can how to use everything from paper and pencil, Excel, Google Sketchup, web based BIM tools and model servers to create and interact in the BIM.
BIM allows Google sketch up for designers, in essence, to build electronically from the ground up. BIM offers industry and society a way to improve productivity and increase the speed by which we can design and construct buildings, Google sketch up For each building design, Building information modeling can store information related to all the components of the building. BIM is maturing to where we can take our concept on paper and build electronically and load the model with all the information and parameters.
