Applying BIM in FreeCAD
The BIM (Building Information Modeling) methodology is a technique that is based on the creation and management of digital information about a building or infrastructure in all phases of its life cycle, from design to construction, maintenance and demolition. The use of the BIM methodology allows collaboration and information sharing between members of the construction team, improving efficiency and reducing costs and errors.
Currently, the use of free software is an increasingly strong trend in various industry sectors, and civil construction is no different. Free software is software that can be used, copied, studied, modified and redistributed without restrictions, which allows users and developers to have more control over the software, promoting transparency and collaboration. There are several free software available for use in civil construction, such as FreeCAD, which is a 3D modeling software.
FreeCAD is a free 3D modeling tool that can be used to apply the BIM methodology. With it, it is possible to create parametric objects and model architectural objects, in addition to allowing the import and export of files in industry standard formats. The integration of FreeCAD with the BIM methodology enables the creation of more accurate and collaborative models, reducing errors and costs.
HR Compacta is a company that aims to simplify and promote practicality in the civil construction industry, offering training and coordination services and implementation of the BIM methodology, using free software, such as FreeCAD. HR Compacta offers FreeCAD BIM courses in Brazilian Portuguese, with classes subtitled in several languages and support material also in English and Spanish. The company has several professionals in more than 10 countries carrying out training.
Additionally, HR Compacta is developing Workbench Planner BIM, a tool that allows users to plan and manage BIM projects using FreeCAD. With Workbench Planner BIM, you can create schedules and budgets for BIM projects, as well as manage resources and collaboration between team members.
Recently, HR Compacta launched a new FreeCAD course for BIM Architecture, offering advanced training in modeling and coordinating architectural projects using the BIM methodology. The course includes content on BIM workflow, parametric object modeling, file import and export, and project coordination.
With the use of free software, such as FreeCAD, and the application of the BIM methodology, HR Compacta is transforming the civil construction industry, offering training and services for the coordination and implementation of BIM projects. The launch of the Workbench Planner BIM and the new FreeCAD course for BIM Architecture demonstrate HR Compacta's commitment to offering complete and innovative solutions for the industry.
