3D-Planning with the BIM-Method
The digitization of processes is progressing rapidly in the construction industry. BIM (Building Information Modeling) is a topic, that has been developing for years and will become a fixed component of the building process for a short or long period of time. BIM can help everyone involved to plan more efficiently, collaborate better and define and control the individual processes and interfaces in a better way.
Increasingly, this planning method is also used in the field of formwork and scaffolding planning. As a service-oriented partner of the construction industry, RINGER is part of this development and supports these processes with appropriate tools.
RINGER enables 3D planning using the BIM-method with formwork related data in Autodesk® Revit®. Together with our partner BIM², we provide our formwork solutions as a digital twin. Thanks to the partially automated planning software BIM²form, the formwork of floor plans can be planned quickly and the necessary material extracts can be created from it.
What does BIM²form offer?
BIM²form is an add-in for Autodesk® Revit®, that allows partially automated planning. Developed by technicians for technicians, the tool intuitively supports planning with wall and slab formwork solutions from RINGER. In the process, complete wall sections are automatically occupied and accessories are added semi-automatically. Standard areas are automated by predefining the partial wall types and then filling the areas with standard types. Complex areas are developed as usual by the know-how of the formwork technician and mapped in the BIM-model.This increases the efficiency of model-oriented planning and achieves a consistent BIM-Workflow. BIM-Data from upstream trades can be taken over and passed on to the following participants.
The formwork model developed by the formwork planning department can be accessed digitally on the construction site. Each scheduled bar is available in a separate, dedicated view and can be accessed quickly and easily. Thanks to the 3D view and the real-time 2D plans and parts lists, the on-site construction team can identify challenging areas in advance and react accordingly at an early stage.
