Most Building Performance Modeling (BPM) professionals experience difficulty translating building design geometry developed in native Building Information Model (BIM) environments into BPM-compatible geometry. This can be due to a lack of BIM knowledge on the BPM professionals’ part or a problematic BIM model that makes translation virtually impossible for a BPM professional. BPM practitioners are stuck trying to simplify and coordinate large BIM models that generate usable schema exports for BPM applications. The result is the lack of practical and efficient interoperability between BIM and BPM software platforms as a widespread industry practice, resulting in rework, inefficiencies and producing separate BPM and BIM production workflows that are both time consuming and disconnected.
This webinar seeks to improve the BIM knowledge of building performance analysts to shorten the knowledge gap and improve the industries knowledge for interoperability between BIM and BPM. During the webinar, we will present Revit basics for setting up a Simplified Analytical Model in Revit. The model can be developed quickly alongside the architectural BIM models, and consistently exported to gbXML for BEM.
