掌握BIM设计软件能拥有强大能力,但了解IFC的潜力及其提高合作效果的能力则更有帮助。任何在整个建筑项目生命周期的参与者都可以获得这个价值,无论其所用的技术。基于IFC的互操作性对于成功至关重要,且交织在Vectorworks软件的工具和BIM数据结构中。在美国建筑师学会会员、北美照明工程师协会会员Jeffrey W. Ouellette主持的研讨会中,与会者将探讨如何利用程序中的先进BIM、三维建模和数据管理工具与功能,通过基于IFC的BIM与高品质互操作性来实现高等设计。与会者将提高自己的知识、技能与信心来利用IFC与项目合作伙伴熟练协作、交付和接收必要模型和信息。

学习目标

  1. 探讨IFC数据如何被集成到全部Vectorworks软件对象和工具。
  2. 评估可在项目文件中操作和共享IFC数据的工具和命令。
  3. 举例说明以设计为核心和IFC丰富的模型。
  4. 检查与项目合作伙伴进行适当模型与问题交流的IFC导入导出与BCF管理器工作流。
