A few months ago Ideate came to me and asked if I would give a presentation on how I use their tools for my projects. Given I love to share and help others, I agreed. I discussed how to create a BIM Manual and use Ideate tools to help maintain my BIM standards.
The presentation BIM Manager Superstar was very well received, with some great positive comments.
Laura’s explanation of how to create a standard process made a lot of sense. That with how she used Ideate tools to get productivity out of the workflow helped me better understand what I can do to improve my own BIM process. Tadeh Hakopian, HKS
It was a great presentation. we are already using ideate. This presentation gave me more confidence to work with the software more. thanks Laura. Janhavi Padalkar, MC
Just a fangirl and wanted to say hi to Laura Kay Smith 🙂 Jennifer Thomas, VIATechnik
The section on BimLink was useful. I’ve had a hard time understanding the usefulness of this tool, but Laura’s example helped me to understand. Melissa Hansen, Tiscareno
I like seeing how she combines both bimlink and sticky to get accurate information in the correct format. Erica Spicer, Gensler (she’s the one asking if they can hire the programmer 😊)
I found value in her problem solving skills. She has given me ideas to further leverage Ideate Software. Doran Smith, Limbach Engineering and Design Services
The BIM manual suggestions were very helpful. Gustavo Amaris, Severud Associates
I like what she said about you kind of have to get lost in potential solutions to figure out what works for you and your workflow. Not one answer for everyone. Travis Vaughan, Klai Juba Wald
Thanks to Ideate for giving me the opportunity to share. This presentation made me think more about what goes into creating a BIM Manual. and since I have received lots of questions on this topic I will explore the creation of my current BIM Manual at my new firm in my next posts.
