We are leading the market in the application of BIM software, tools, methods and processes in building engineering and construction sectors complying to the present project BIM requirements and precisely addressing business requisites without exceeding budgets and resources.
New Component-based stairs in Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013 provide capabilities to assemble a stair using individual run, landing, and support components. Each run and landing component can be modified by using direct manipulation controls. During the creation process, you can preview the stair in 3D as you sketch the various components.
Component-based stairs allow overlapping stairs to be created, as well as more stair layouts including spiral stair cases and winder stairs. Additionally, you can create multiple runs and have Autodesk Revit automatically create landings to connect the runs.

Atlanta: Well known for providing BIM software to the global engineering and construction markets, Tekla announced the availability of Tekla Structures 20. Tekla assured that this latest version of Tekla’s BIM software, Structures 20 Software, will accelerate the construction information and workflow by rendering the means to organize models properly, prevent structural clashes and manage tasks. Besides, the constructible models developed with Tekla can integrate more detailed information than it could have done earlier. Tekla Structures, launched in 2004, helps to model, detail, fabricate and build various buildings, bridges, and sports complexes. The software is specifically designed to work flawlessly with Tekla BIMsight, which is a free online tool and portal for construction project collaboration. With BIMpenetrating the construction industry processes, architectural trends, today, are producing highly complex shapes, buildings are incorporating more refined technology, and information exchange is becoming progressively more essential. And Tekla Structures 20 software is competent to meet this demand by increasing the capacity of constructible Tekla models to smoothly manage huge amounts of information required to precisely reflect the detail included in complex build structures. The new tools support better information management as Tekla Structures 20 offers more detailed information and flexibility to modeling, while minimizing the requirement for manual data transfer. The software enhances the flow of information from design, purchasing and production to the shop floor. It also offers various links to architectural and design solutions to eliminate the technical and compatibility obstacles that include workflow between subcontractors and project teams employing varied types of applications. Tekla Structures 20 improves project team communication and collaboration by offering the detail required for building complex structures, providing process-improving tools, and smoothly working with other software applications, and thus delivering on the promise of BIM for the construction industry. Tekla Structures 20 provides several improved tools that simplify the management of the massive amounts of constructible building information required for contemporary structures:
Organizer: It helps to deliver efficient model information management and better automation.
Task Manager: It offers an organized method to plan detailing, fabrication and erection on site.
Clash Check Manager: It permits communicating, assigning, coordinating and preventing structural conflicts before they appear on site to save money and time.
New features in Revit 2014 - You can now use imported solids, modify, cut and join within the mass family. You can also use temporary view templates to support your workflow without needing working views for simple view properties changes.

Development of a full house in Revit Architecture 2014 with the creation of executive walls, setting materials, creating levels in bone and finished placement of doors and windows, placement of liners, applying light fixtures in ceilings, humanization design, creating roof timbers, generation of tables with quantitative doors, setting boards work with the drawings for printing and generating mockup (rendered perspective). The video lasts about 1 hour and a half, however, does not include all the features of the software. Only the most important that will serve for beginners start working with Revit. Some subjects will be presented in other videos because they are more complex and not very tiring to make this video.

Viewpoint Construction Software is going to introduce Viewpoint For Project Collaboration. It is a new BIM collaboration tool created to enhance communications as well as minimize probable jeopardizes for any project stakeholders. Viewpoint For Project Collaboration can efficiently collaborate and distribute information amid several project stakeholders.
Viewpoint For Project Collaboration contains a simplified browser supported viewer alias BIM manager for 3D BIM models. BIM manager facilitates the authorized supply chain member to allows any authorized supply chain member to collectively evaluate, define and comment upon a model, as well as involve data with elements of the model.
By applying BIM Manager, any project stakeholders will be able to analysis and interrelate with 3D BIM models through a modern web browser. The project stakeholders can easily avail and view existing project specifications.
Viewpoint For Project Collaboration provides great advantages to the following sectors:-
This exclusive video tutorial is presented by Matteo Cominetti. BIM Collaboration Format Plugin for Autodesk Revit 2014 and 2013. Allows the import/export, creation and modification of BCF files to use with Solibri Model Checker or Tekla BIMSight.
Revit, the multi-users design tool that works effectively on a local area network with all the users sitting in the same place, does not meet the operational requirements of the larger organizations where teams from different locations work on a larger project. The Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry has been conventionally fragmented regarding designing and constructing buildings. Many firms and organizations have combined to create a building and once the project is accomplished, this team splits to develop another team for another building project. Inspired by the technology building blocks of a cloud, there is now an AEC Collaboration Hub for Advance2000. This will help users to work together, in real-time.
To achieve project collaboration organizations are shifting to a cloud environment today. Users do not have to transfer large models and wait for several days for design feedback on problematic issues. With AEC Collaboration Hub it is possible now to provide clients real-time feedback, and execute a project efficiently as well as timely.
Cloud computing is turning Information Technology (IT) from a capital intensive business to a utility that can be used as required from a pre-existing infrastructure. Advance2000 is a Cloud Computing provider like IT utility that builds and operates the IT power plants and sells it computing power to consumers.
BIM is incorporated in this industry for design and construction of the built environment. And A BIM cloud is a special purpose IT cloud. It is used sort to the problems of the AEC industry. A BIM cloud enables the users to virtualize their desktop in order to dynamically incorporate computing resources in, promptly and in a cost effective manner. Virtualization turns the hardware into a piece of software which helps the users to enhance the utility of the actual hardware of the system. Besides BIM Cloud allows the users to virtually co-locate their project team as they can access their desktops remotely, all those desktops, applications, and storage required to run their project can be co-located in the same data center.
Advance2000 has indeed developed an artery for collaboration that is aiding new businesses to grow and new sources of revenue for member firms.
