How to integrate cloud-based 3D coordination tools in construction management courses

3D model coordination via the cloud

As a construction educator, helping students understand the connection between 2D documents and 3D Building Information Models (BIM) can be challenging. However, Dr. Jeong Woo from the Milwaukee School of Engineering proved that his undergraduate students could overcome this challenge by using Autodesk BIM 360 to collaborate on their 3D model projects.

You can learn how these students used BIM 360 Glue for multi-disciplinary coordination and clash detection by watching the recorded webinar "How to integrate BIM 360 Glue in Construction Management classes". In this webinar, Dr. Woo discusses Connected BIM's relevancy in undergraduate construction management classes and how it aligns with the American Council of Construction Education (ACCE) and Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) student learning outcomes.
