BIM and the Art of Engineer Oversight

Just over 15 years ago, computers took over the way civil and structural Engineers did their jobs. Everything went from drawings on paper to structures on a screen. The software packages available for these Engineers grew and continues to grow in availability and computational power as the technology allows more and more elements to be […]

How to install the Konstru plugin for Microsoft Excel

Konstru was created to solve several large, persistent problems in the use of BIM (Building Information Modeling) by architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) firms. One of those problems is BIM model version control, and another is interoperability among the various engineering and modeling software packages. In this post, we explain how to bring Microsoft Excel spreadsheet software […]

The End of Manual BIM Data Transfer is Here

Almost all medium and large structural engineering firms use BIM tools in their practice. Engineers use a variety of analysis programs to calculate beam sizes, column sizes, slab thicknesses, forces, and connections. Someone must enter that data into the drawing production software. Moving data from analysis models to production models is time consuming, error prone, […]
