New plugin for BIM: day1bim

The plugin, day1bim Tools, is a set of conceptual massing and programming tools for architects which allows the user to quickly develop a project concept model and extract fundamental project information. Version 1 is now published on food4Rhino.

The concept model developed can be used for simulations and representations. With Grasshopper-based connections, the geometry can be linked forward to generate native elements in a BIM environment. It’s a flexible model ready to visualize in minutes and easy to modify. It’s not about making conceiving architecture easy. It’s about making BIM elegant. It lets you work directly, intuitively refining the 3D model. The script manages the data and live updates.

From a simple arrangement of forms in solid and void, rapidly generate powerful project data, for building mass and program. It’s a quick start to develop concept forms to visualize and elaborate your idea. It uses fundamental skills in manipulating geometry in Rhino. And day1bim takes advantage of many available, but often little known, Rhino tools that are advantageous for architecture projects. It leverages Grasshopper to manage and update the geometry and data. It works within Rhino and Grasshopper in the natural way, this is to help users new to modeling and algorithmic environments understand their function’s logic. They access many common tools for, linking data, generating representations, annotations and export geometry. The plugin is free for students… and very reasonably priced for commercial use.
