In this article, we will highlight the work of all the major “fathers” of BIM technology, who developed CAD tools in the 80s and 90s. We will also analyze who is behind the success of buildingSMART and corporations such as the Nemetschek Group and Autodesk and why the old Autodesk programmers did not like the Revit developers, and the Nemetschek company refused to develop the IFC format.

The main events tree will help you follow the information in this part. With this diagram, I want to show that small ideas and developments were transferred from one development group to another, where, after a new reading, they turned into CAD programs that are used by designers around the world today. The starting point in the scheme was taken from technical universities, from which future CAD tool developers emerged. …


haben wir über die Entstehung der STEP-, IFC-Formate und die Schaffung der buildingSMART-Organisation gesprochen. sprach auch über die Geburt eines neuen Planungswerkzeugs — das Revit-Programm — und über die neuen Funktionen, die die Entwickler dem Programm zur Verfügung gestellt haben, dank derer Revit seit 2010 zuversichtlich weltweit zum Marktführer auf dem BIM-CAD-Softwaremarkt geworden ist.

In diesem Artikel werden wir einen Blick darauf werfen, wohin sich der BIM-CAD-Softwaremarkt heute bewegt. Welche BIM-CAD-Programme werden von Planern in verschiedenen Ländern der Welt ausgewählt und wie hat sich die Planungswelt in den letzten 15 Jahren radikal verändert.

Wenn Sie den wichtigsten Trends in der BIM-Planung auf der ganzen Welt folgen, werden Sie einen unglaublichen Unterschied in der Entwicklung von BIM-Technologien in einzelnen Industrieländern feststellen. Was erklärt diesen Unterschied bei den Planungstechnologien, von denen 5 bis 20% des BIP jedes Landes der Welt abhängen? …


, we talked about the emergence of the STEP, IFC formats and the creation of the buildingSMART organization. also talked about the birth of a new planning tool — the Revit program — and about the new functions given by the developers to the program, thanks to which, since 2010, Revit has confidently become the leader in the design market worldwide.

In this article we will take a look at where the BIM CAD software market is headed today. …


Im 17. Jahrhundert wollte jeder fortgeschrittene niederländische Landwirt eine Tulpe bekommen, 2017 wollte ein fortgeschrittener Internetnutzer Bitcoin kaufen. Heutzutage träumt jedes fortschrittliche Bauunternehmen davon, 4D-7D BIM in seiner Planung und den Wettbewerbsvorteilen, die diese Technologie mit sich bringt, zu verwenden.

Das Thema über die ungleiche Entwicklung von BIM kann nicht ohne einen kurzen Einblick in die Geschichte der Entstehung von BIM-Programmen oder genauer gesagt in die Datenformate begonnen werden, die nun zu einem Lobbykampf um die Möglichkeit geführt haben, jedes Jahr neue Bauaufträge abzuwickeln, und infolgedessen zu einer sehr ungleichmäßigen Entwicklung von BIM in einigen Ländern geführt hat. …


In the 17th century, every advanced Dutch farmer wanted to get hold of a tulip; in 2017, an advanced internet user wanted to buy Bitcoin. Nowadays, every advanced construction company dreams of using 3D-7D BIM in their planning and the competitive advantages that this technology will bring them.

This series of articles focuses on the uneven development of BIM across countries. This topic cannot be started without a short excursion into the history of the emergence of BIM programs or, more precisely, the data formats that have now led to a lobbying struggle for the possibility of planning each year and, as a result, to a very uneven development of BIM in different countries. …


Almost all documents that are used today by people working in construction are saved in PDF or JPEG format.

In this series of articles, we will transform the PDF file into text. The PDF file is our unstructured data that we will transform into text using the python and additional libraries, then into a tabular form and then visualize the received data on the kaggle platform.

This process can be divided into stages.


San Francisco is the world technological capital, whose example based on open data can be used to observe the development of the construction industry in megapolices. In this technologically advanced city, very pronounced economic cycles at different time intervals resulted in an explosive demand growth in various sectors of real estate.

Data on more than a million building permits (records in two datasets) acquired from the San Francisco Construction Department allow us to analyze not only the construction activity in the city, but also critically examine the latest trends and development history of the construction industry over the past 40 years, from 1980 to 2019 (section “Annual Construction Activity in San Francisco”). …

How to reduce planning in Revit time from one hour to one minute?!

Work Smart Not Hard — #FutureReady.

🚀 In #Dynamo we can create many different scripts that allow automation and optimization in planning and processing.

Thanks to Dynamo (and #Python), сompleting these tasks took only 1 Minute:

Placement of Base Plate Column - Eaves Columns 
Placement of Plate Column Base 90° rotated - Gable Columns
Placement of Anchor Plinth +500 - Eaves Columns (outside)
Placement of Anchor Plinth +500 - Gable Columns (outside)
Placement of Anchor Truss 90° rotated - Gable Columns (inside)
Placement of Anchor Sandwichpanel - Eaves Columns (outside)
Placement of Anchor Sandwichpanel - Gable Columns…

This series of articles is devoted to the study of the construction activity of the main city of Silicon Valley — San Francisco. Charts and calculations were built with the help of (Kaggle)

Data on more than a million building permits (records in two datasets) acquired from the San Francisco Construction Department allow us to analyze not only the construction activity in the city, but also critically examine the latest trends and development history of the construction industry over the past 40 years, from 1980 to 2019 (section “Annual Construction Activity in San Francisco”).

The movement of activity in the construction industry in San Francisco almost completely coincides with the growth schedule for gold and bitcoin (section “The future of the San Francisco construction industry, pattern…


The construction industry is huge, “stable”, as old as the world, and consumes up to 10% of all money used in the world. On average, it can be considered that one in ten able-bodied people in the world is somehow connected with the construction industry. The construction industry is partly the driver of the economy, many internal processes are tied to it.

Since 2000, there has been a steady tendency in the construction industry around the world to reduce the number of people employed in construction, and the 2008 crisis hit the construction sector especially hard and increased the outflow of specialists from the industry. …
