Intermediate BIM Modeling

Design is typically an iterative process where ideas are successively refined in a series of phases or stages, each focusing on specific aspects of the design.

Area and Space Planning

In this lesson, students explore how building modeling tools can be used to the process of area and space planning, which is often one of the first steps in the preliminary design process.

Phased Project Design

In this lesson, students explore two applications of project phases and phased design

Design Options

In this lesson, students experience the process of identifying areas of a project where multiple design options are being considered and a workflow for exploring, evaluating, and presenting those options within a single integrated design model.

Digital Fabrication for AEC with Autodesk® Fusion 360™

Today’s designers are makers. Join this movement and learn how to quickly translate your design imagination to physical reality. No drawings required!

Detailed Design/Construction Documents

Creating detailed construction documents marks the beginning of the conversion of a proposed design into a constructible project. No drawing set is complete without descriptions of the materials and the assembly details, which is why adding annotations, linework, and detail components is a crucial phase of the complete BIM workflow.

Detailed Design/Schedules and Quantities

In this lesson, students explore ways to create tabular views called schedules and summarize information about the building elements through groupings, sorting, and calculating values.
