We are an industry where machine and computer power enhance the work of the person, in many cases, making the very jobs we undertake possible. Modeling wouldn’t be feasible if not for the computing power of today’s equipment, from Robotic Total Stations (RTS) units to laptops and cranes.
New parameters and families have improved the use of tags and schedules in eVolve 2.0. With the use of these new parameters, the need to manual dimension conduit runs has almost been eliminated. Tags and schedules can be used to automatically call out dimensions and angles of bends, kicks, offsets and other fittings.
If the need to place manual dimensions are still needed, the built-in dimensional planes that are used to set the work planes have been revised to either allow users to pick a plane that will dimension to the centerline or to the back of bends. Being able to dimension to the back of bends will simplify the ability to perform field bends.
Tags can be placed using different type tags to allow for multiple parameters to be displayed in tags.

Making the investment in Building Information Modeling (BIM) systems can transform construction operations from the start of any project, leading to more efficient use of time and materials in all phases of the build, including long after the active construction project is completed. Through BIM, savings can be realized for the stakeholders in the project–from the building owner to subcontractors–and the operator of the structure benefits far into the future.
While economic situation brings focus on improving ways to increase efficiency in the workplace, these money-saving ideas should be in place during all times. They are best practices that not only save money, but they also save time and cut down on waste, which critical in these eco-aware times.
