Estimating Cost Take-off Fundamentals for BIM
Type: Software Course
Study time: 3 hours
Practical exercises: Yes
This this course you will learn how to open and create a new project and prepare a variety of common two dimensional drawing file formats for measurement. It will also run through the various techniques that can be used in order to extract quantities from a 3D Models
The learners will understand how DimensionX supports takeoff for 3D/BIM models as well as 2D drawings, allowing users to save time and money, improve accuracy and reduce paper handling. The DimensionX is a drawing viewer where PDF and CAD files can be viewed, and without the use of CAD software or any previous experience of CAD by the user, detailed and accurate dimensions generated automatically from 3D BIM models (DimensionX® only), or measurements easily and quickly taken from 2D and 3D drawings by using simple but powerful electronic measurement tools. Learners will understanding how these tools make use of embedded CAD data to make measurement even quicker and easier.
This course aims to inform and demonstrate the principles of measurement using DimensionX takeoff. The exercises are based around the use of examples files and templates which have been developed for demonstration and training purposes only. This module focuses on the BIM quantity take-off process required by QS/ cost manager and identifies the basic fundamentals required for 5D BIM
