Standardise and manage project elements with Content

With the introduction of CAD software and their subsequent evolution, data generation has been rising at a phenomenal rate. At the same time, managing this data is a tough task. This situation is highlighted, especially in the AEC industry, as every project generates tonnes of digital content. Companies and firms need to maintain a variety of this content because this can uplift the quality of BIM models.

An overview of Content with various types of filters

Content from planBIM is capable of acting as a single source of objects for BIM projects. The design of the module allows anyone to upload Autodesk® Revit families, templates and component files. Generally, in AEC firms, these types of records are placed inside folders with a complicated naming system. However, Content keeps track of every component that is uploaded to let users access them via instant search or filter options. These options are incredibly variable and dynamic with unique preferences to organise elements based on their Disciplines, Tags, Level of Information (LOI), among other choices.

As a measure to speed things up, planBIM Content can let users upload multiple Revit families in the form of a batch.

With an easy to use interface and intuitive drag & drop features, collaborators can enhance their productivity and worry less about the trouble of actually uploading data on the cloud. Another task that performs smoothly is the naming of all these different files — attributes like automated file naming system and version detection maintain the idea of minimising difficulties.
Firms have a habit of maintaining their own set of standards to avoid conflicts. Keeping this in mind, planBIM Content bears a modern approach to address such standards. While uploading any data, users can assign various properties to BIM objects. These include Level of Detail (LOD), Level of Information (LOI), Simple non-specialist or OmniClass® characteristics, and some other necessary details. Collaborators can use Tags to classify the objects as well. All these properties are editable as per convenience, i.e. editors can modify properties before, during or even after uploading the components.

Different properties of the object along with its Version History and Comments section

For being ahead of the curve, firms ensure that they work on the latest and approved versions of the objects. planBIM Content can automatically manage the version control of these objects. The module also maintains a version history with the list of editors who have changed any properties. This feature is useful in case one needs to revert to a previous version to start anew. Collaborators can post comments about the object, thus improving coordination amongst themselves. planBIM Editors have superior access controls, which is why only editors can upload or download any element. They can even determine who else is responsible for any uploads or downloads apart from themselves.
There are ways to deal with BIM objects, and then there is planBIM Content. The easy to use and attractive interface of the module is built to increase the efficiency of organisations in general. Multiple user collaboration in real-time makes this module a must-have for BIM firms. Handling the standards of numerous objects on the cloud has never been easier.
