Description
More than likely, you’ve encountered a lot of conflicting, overly complicated, and unhelpful content about BIM online and in print. We intend to make Building Information Modeling (BIM) For Dummies different, cutting through all the noise and providing you with the clear advice and practical guidance that you need to make BIM a success in your job, whatever your level may be. Think of this book as a reference guide that addresses just what you need to know about BIM.

For the purposes of this book, we want to make it clear that we use the terms model and BIM to mean quite different things. Throughout the book we refer to BIM only as the concept of information modeling for buildings. We use terms like 3D CAD, 3D model, and geometric/geometry model interchangeably.

We structure this book to start with the basic concepts and ideas. We then gradually introduce more complicated, detailed, or supplementary content. Within this book, you may note that some web addresses break across two lines of text. If you’re reading this book in print and want to visit one of these sites, simply key in the web address exactly as it’s noted in the text, pretending that the line break doesn’t exist. If you’re reading it as an e-book, then you can just click the web address and the page will open in your default Internet browser.
