Example text

In many cases it is automatically determined, but in other cases a user may develop a calculation to automatically determine a specific area based on dimensions made parametric. For instance, for a window to meet egress code it is required to have a specific clear opening area. The software cannot intuitively define the opening area without input from the user creating the object. By creating parameters for clear opening width and clear opening height, the clear opening area can be determined programmatically using simple arithmetic.

The level of detail associated with many of the OmniClass tables is more than the design and construction disciplines need to digest, but they set the stage for more effective information exchange and better collaboration among all parties associated with a project. indd 40 3/18/11 10:21:31 AM MasterFormat® 41 MASTERFORMAT® For years, MasterFormat® has been recognized as the industry standard for the organization of construction information. As projects are developed, a series of paper documents is generated to archive the project design as well as provide an instruction manual for how the project is supposed to be assembled.

For instance, much of the time a ceiling fan is located in a ceiling, but, in some cases, it could be placed on an exposed structural member beneath the ridge of a roof. An object that relies on a surface or “face” allows the fan to be placed on either a ceiling or a structural member. indd 17 3/17/11 10:39:57 AM 18 Chapter 2 Content Hierarchy WHAT IS A BIM ASSEMBLY?
