Temas relacionados



  • On-site practical workshop


  • Engineers from CYPE’s technical department


  • Learning through practical exercises on a personal computer


  • Certificate of achievement and attendance to the course. A minimum of 75% attendance is required.


This workshop is based on the Open BIM workflow proposed by CYPE, using the BIMserver.center cloud platform. Starting with the results obtained in CYPECAD and CYPE 3D, StruBIM Steel and CYPE Connect are used to solve steel connections and generate detailing drawings. Along with the drawings, the results include generating material reports, integrating BIM models into the federated model in the cloud and exporting the structure in IFC-EM.11, STEP and DSTV format.

Objetivos generales

  • Learning the processes of data entry, analysis of results and processing of information to obtain the graphic and written documents of the project.
  • Acquiring the necessary skills to operate the programs.

Dirigido a

  • Architecture, engineering and construction professionals.
  • Students in their final years of technical studies who want to learn about this tool that is so widespread in studios and technical offices.
  • Companies, organisations and groups wishing to attend these courses from their offices.
