Thou shalt obey: The BIMandments
Over the last week or so, there has been a new trend sweeping through the BIM community on twitter. The idea; sharing your opinions on the most important rules to follow when working with BIM. The #BIMandments as they were so named by @AYBABTM from @case_inc has seen over 50 BIM crazy users tweeting their advice for others, with well over 500 tweets in total.
From this list I have found some useful tips that I didn’t know about, and others that I can now laugh at after making those very mistake myself once. Because of the amount of useful information and tips that I have seen, I have decided to compile my list of my top ten. There are plenty of other great ideas, so navigate to the bottom of this post and view the website for some more inspiration.
Always Link, do not Import
Use Tags and Keynotes, NOT the Text tool :O)
When making component families, dimension to Ref planes for parameters not geometry
Turn off Press & Drag, especially if you’re a beginner
Enter my central file and my fist will enter your face
manage your worksets properly
Draw reference lines from left to right to ensure your plane is “positive” on the left or upper side of the line.
So! There’s my top 10… There were plenty of other helpful and also humorous tweets, so remember to visit twitter on the link below and check the latest status of the trend! The list is growing and growing every day! Hope everyone has a great weekend, and remember.. Thou Shalt Obey!!
