Confused between your Data Sets and your Federated Models? Unsure of the difference between a Data Drop and an Information Model? If you’re struggling to pick up Building Information Modelling jargon, the latest visual from The B1M will help.
A new “cheat sheet” video from the definitive video channel for Building Information Modelling content has been released to their official YouTube channel, and looks at the main linguistic offenders who turn brains into scrambled egg.
