Many iconic structures popping up all over the world—from skyscrapers to bridges—are designed and built using Building Information Modeling (BIM), a 3D-modeling process that is transforming the architecture, engineering, and construction industry.
With the evolution of parametric modeling and reality capture, structural data is becoming increasingly rich and complex, saving time and money in project preparations while preventing errors and expensive change orders.
Whether you know a lot or a little about BIM, its storied history is longer than you may think. In this Redshift video, learn all about the impressive lifetime of BIM, starting in the 1960s when the demand for digital building models was born, to the emergence of BIM mandates and BIM-GIS integration today. BIM sure has come a long way, baby!
