The benefits of BIM for buried structures​: digging deeper


In this webinar we’ll show how quick and easy is to model and reinforce buried structures.

We will show you a 2D-to-3D workflow: working in 2D connected views, make a change in one, and see the same changes in all views.

We will demonstrate how to use our robust set of modeling and reinforcement tools, automatic quantities, COG, auto-generated weights, volumes, and rebar bending schedules.

All of these tools will increase your drawing productivity while reducing your errors and checking time, thus increasing the quality of your production drawings.

After this webinar you will understand:

  • Modeling pre-benched manholes, box culvert, concrete pipe, and vaults
  • How to use python parts
  • Reinforcement and dimensioning of simple and complex shapes
  • Generating accurate production drawings
