On behalf of the Building Information for Masonry Initiative (BIM-M), IMI is preparing the Wall Systems Library (WSL) for January launch. Based on SketchUp and its companion LayOut program, WSL will benefit architects, engineers and contractors as it presents design and construction options in a systematic way and simplifies decision making.
The National Concrete Masonry Association-backed Building Information Modeling for Masonry Initiative’s (BIM-M) new guide, BIM for Masonry Modeling Masonry Buildings, provides architects, engineers and mason contractors with tools for developing Autodesk Revit models. BIM-M and The Masonry Society teamed to fund and oversee guide production. Published through TMS, the 17MB document is available for free download from www.tms.org.
