Just starting out and am wanting to know what the difference between CAD and BIM is.
CAD is based on 2D drawing elements and has evolved to 3D whereas BIM involves modelling in 3D with intellgent data parameters being assigned to individual members. To work in a BIM environment you need to work in 3D. This forms the fundamentals of working in a BIM environment. BIM integrates both the drafting and design process to make projects more efficent in achieving the project deliverables.
