BIM Modeling Services With Archicad and Revit
When someone thinks of a construction project, they rarely think of the collaboration and attention to detail involved in producing a beautifully completed building and how BIM modeling services can help them.
Notably, ‘BIM’ is a buzzword that’s starting to make waves in the construction industry, especially for Architects and Engineers. As a result, you might have heard of the term but may not understand the full impact that it’s going to have on all parties involved. So, let’s read on to find what BIM services are and how it can upgrade your whole modeling game.
What Should You Know About the BIM Modeling Service?
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the brain of the modern building industry. Modern software can manage objects’ entire life cycle, structure, function, and relationship. Its unique toolset provides a powerful way to represent your entire project with everything in its correct place.
You can then use it to run the whole process, from site planning to construction, commissioning, and hand-over. This comprehensive set of tools brings forward information between different parties by modeling, coordination, collaboration, and data exchange.
Building Information Modelling or BIM is a 3D, dynamic model created by combining information from all disciplines required to fabricate and construct a building. It’s the fifth dimension – literally – and it has taken Revit and Archicad offsite BIM modeler to a whole new level.
Using BIM uses an integrated approach while sharing data between architects, structural engineers, MEP engineers, interior designers, contractors, and manufacturers.
In short, BIM is a “whole-life” collaborative process that allows professionals from all disciplines within the building industry to collaborate during the design and construction process.
Wait – Aren’t BIM and CAD the Same?
Today, folks use the term ‘BIM’ almost interchangeably with ‘CAD’; however, there is a distinction between both of them.
CAD merely seeks to build architectural models that will then be used for design and later construction.
BIM has taken that into account and provides tools that can be used even before the building is constructed.
In general, CAD programs are used to create 2-dimensional plans or three-dimensional models representing real-world buildings and objects. CAD software was born as 2D CAD drawings to draw floor plans. Passing years have helped CAD into 3D modeling up-gradation that has its own benefits.
It is the use of 3D modeling for designing buildings technologically. With the help of this technology, designers can anticipate both design and construction-based problems at an early stage.
On the other side, BIM collaborates with all personnel in a construction project on a larger scale. BIM allows personnel to spot any issue or error before the projects enter into the construction phase. As a growing trend, it has led to significant cost savings in the industry. It allows the entire workforce in a given project to use a single digital model to plan, manage and monitor the progress.
Is It Possible to Convert CAD Designs to BIM Models?
In electrical and mechanical engineering, computers have been used in the design process for a variety of consumer products, from televisions to automobiles. However, in other fields besides electrical and mechanical engineering, the technology is still not as widespread.
While BIM is used in designing and manufacturing buildings, its use in terms of designing and manufacturing infrastructure has only recently gained traction in the industrial markets. It is now possible to build intelligent buildings and manage their supply chains with BIM. Using it to design infrastructure is still in its infancy but growing by the day.
However, it is possible to convert CAD designs into BIM models for more significant construction projects. As compared to CAD, the BIM model has the following features:
- With BIM, it’s appropriate to work on five different areas, including width, length, breadth, cost, and time.
- BIM models are comprehensive enough to provide an in-depth deconstruction knowledge and data analysis.
- BIM modeling makes it easier to cover the whole project lifecycle from the start to the end – designing to construction and destruction.
- With a BIM model, you can have an estimated schedule of every construction stage that gives you an idea of cost beforehand.

Our BIM Modeling Services
Here’s a brief description of our offered services related to BIM modeling.
Building BIM Modeling
Our drafters can convert your sketches into accurate architectural drawings in architectural BIM modeling services, either AutoCAD or Revit format. Depending on the job, we can draft details, build schedules, interior or exterior scenes rendering, etc. According to your needs, we can convert a picture or an existing 2D drawing to a 3D Revit or Archicad model.
We believe that building information modeling (BIM) survey data will one day replace traditional 2D survey data. A BIM survey offers much more detailed survey data than conventional 2D survey information.
A wall cannot be constructed as a simple two-dimensional line drawing when working in BIM software. You build an intelligent model where each item is created from its own family with specific properties.
Additionally, our technicians can produce Archicad or Revit models for already present buildings. However, the structure can be a stadium, building, house, or warehouse.
BIM Object Modeling
At ArchicadTeam, we can eliminate the problem of object integration. We can help develop qualitative Archicad or Revit BIM objects. Personnel can access it quickly in a central location—that contains all the necessary visuals, material, and product data for building product visualization.
It means a product or brand that can show a particular characteristic and function of the product to the public, which will enable people to understand the product better. To illustrate the functional and quality aspects, you must obtain in a design.
CAD operators can create Archicad and Revit terrain models from 2D DWG drawings or blueprints—and we can convert your existing CAD files to these programs. We have specialized drafters to convert your CAD data into precise, dimensionally accurate PLN, PDF, DWG files. Using our BIM model, you will continue further development on the project more quickly. We also have a terrain model which allows you to present in-depth features of your building site.
Our Archicad technicians can help you build MEP models from the two-dimensional data supplied by engineers. These models let you visualize your MEP systems and spot possible collisions before they happen.
We can integrate your architectural models into your MEP models to ensure structurally sound. Additionally, based on the complete model of all your MEP systems, we can run a collision detection test between your engineering and architectural design.
