BEAM connects Rhinoceros 3D with the AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) industry standard Autodesk Revit. Assign parameters, create families and move geometry across the platforms, BEAM comes with features targeted to assist designers in the creation of models that can fully deliver the creative intent along all the data needed to bring it into the digital era of Building Information Modelling. BEAM provides tools to assign information and parameters to Rhino's geometrical objects and bring them to Revit easily, updating components and creating a connection between the models saving hours of work. BEAM allows the creation of complex, information rich models. Ready for IFC exports and collaboration.
- URSA: Use Rhino poly-lines and points to drive adaptive components placement.
- BLOCS: Use Rhino blocks to create Family instances in the Revit document optimising repetition and patterns.
- RAY: Transfer edge curves and solid geometry, parameters and materials from Revit to Rhino in a single.
