Synopsis:

This presentation will introduce the main “Flexible BIM” tools VisualARQ adds to Rhino and Grasshopper for developing a project of architecture inside Rhino in 3D, producing the 2D documentation drawings and delivering a BIM model for other AEC applications.

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn how to produce BIM models in Rhino with VisualARQ
2. Learn how to work with parametric architectural objects and create new custom objects driven by Grasshopper
3. Learn how to manage data and automate modeling tasks with BIM objects in Grasshopper

Body:

“This presentation will introduce to the audience the advantages of using Flexible BIM and parametric design techniques in architecture with VisualARQ, Rhino, and Grasshopper software solution.
Rhino 3D (McNeel) is one of the most versatile and emerging 3D modeling software in the AEC industry, and part of its success relies on “Grasshopper 3D”, a visual graphic algorithm editor built in Rhino, which lets you automate tasks and develop your own tools.
VisualARQ integrates perfectly into Rhino and Grasshopper, and adds Flexible BIM features for developing a project of architecture inside Rhino, producing the 2D documentation drawings and delivering a BIM model for other AEC applications.

People will see and learn:
-The advantage of working with parametric architectural objects.
-Navigation tools to work and organize the model at different levels and sections.
-How to produce 2D drawings linked with the 3D model
-How to generate custom dynamic BIM objects driven by Grasshopper with unlimited options of parametric design.
-How to manage data and automate many modeling tasks through the VisualARQ components built for Grasshopper 3D.
-How to add custom data to geometry and list in schedules.
-How to deliver BIM models and collaborate with other tools through the IFC import/export capabilities.
-How to exchange Rhino and VisualARQ models with Revit using the Rhino.Inside Technology.
-User cases the conference will consist of an overview slideshow presentation of VisualARQ and a live demo of the main features.
