The BIMandments Update
I made a blog post a couple of months back about My top 10 BIMandments and as expected, the hash tag has continued to grow in popularity and developed! I therefore thought it would be suitable to make an updated version of the BIMandments, v2! I am going to pick another 10 of my favourites which have been tweeted recently. Since my last blog post, someone has registered the address www.BIMandments.com where there is a live stream of the twitter hash tag feed, so make sure to check it out to stay in touch with the latest tricks and advice from the growing BIM community on Twitter!
Thou shalt be willing to share thy model with the project team.
Prefix your Calc’d Values w/ “round” “roundup” or “rounddown” to round them as such
Never use Levels for things that are not really Levels
Set a ‘default view template’ for every view.
Never ever for any reason create a workset for Demo
So, there’s my 2nd list of top 10 BIMandments! We now have a top 20! Make sure to check out the Twitter account @BIMandments and keep your eye on the hash tag to keep up to date with all the latest tips and tricks! Keep tweeting your own BIMandments and who knows, you might be lucky enough to make the next list! ;) As you can see from the list above there are a few doubles appearing! Let’s bring this back to life and post some new ideas, so hopefully next time there will be a few new faces on the list!
