Keys to Making BIM Easy Seminars
The Keys to Making BIM Easy seminars provide a high-level, non-technical demonstration of moving a model from design to detailing and fabrication and, ultimately, to the field. The seminars will highlight some of the most useful tools and commonly used workflows for today's projects.
To learn more and to register to attend an upcoming Keys to Making BIM Easy seminar, click here.
We require that you go through the “SDS/2 Detailing Basics & Step-By-Step Instructions” manual, “Assorted Tools for Working in SDS/2” manual, and “SDS/2 Connection Guide” before attending the course.
Design Data will supply each attendee with design drawings, course outlines, and other training information, all of which will be yours to keep. You will not need to bring anything else. At the end of the week you will also receive a CD-ROM containing your job and fabricator setup, 3D model, and details you will have created over the course of the week. The CD will be a great resource for continued learning.
