day 1 bim Tools : by figureForward

  • day 1 bim Tools is a set  of conceptual massing and programming tools for architects, which allows the user to quickly develop a project concept model and extract fundamental project information.  The concept model developed can be used for simulations and representations.  With grasshopper based connections, the geometry can be linked forward to generate native elements in a BIM environment.  It’s a flexible model that is ready to visualize in minutes and easy to modify.

    day 1 bim is not about making conceiving architecture “easy”. It’s about making BIM elegant.

    It let’s you work directly, intuitively refining the 3D model.  The script manages the data and live updates.

  • 3d conceptual architectural project development from simple masses; with all the fundamental project data you need.

    Program Spaces By Boundaries

    Programming just by drawing simple boundaries. Two different methods are available which suit different project types. Draw the movable boundaries of program spaces, or sub-divide levels with cut-lines.

    Program By Level

    Visualize the project and the data: Visualization styles and color cycles are at your control for whatever best suites your project needs. 

    Structure : Draw the structural grid lines, get the total length of structural elements, beams & columns.  The center line geometry is ready to go directly to FEA and to generate native elements in BIM.

    Generate and Export: to BIM, simulation tools, fabrication data and performa……….

  • Elemental Input Forms

    Compose massing from forms of Mass / Voids / Internal Voids.

    Void Mass
    Internal Void

    Generate the concept volume.

    The geometry can become progressively more refined as the project develops. Or possible, the form resulting from the mass elements suits your needs. From these elemental forms detailed and precise data is derived to inform your project. The base geometry can be passed directly to drawings and fabrication on Day 1
