Models are increasingly becoming the primary medium for design and documentation in commercial construction. From the earliest conceptual stage to detailed coordination in the field, models are improving traditional work flows. Increasingly complex systems can now be modeled which has opened the door for masonry to be supported in both design and construction models. This program will present an overview of how 3D computer models are being applied to produce better masonry designs and improve construction efficiency.

Case studies in coordination using unit based masonry models with rebar will be featured as well as the latest in point cloud models and clash detection. We will also demonstrate a new plugin for Revit that supports custom bond patterns with accurate modular layout and automatic section generation.
