How generative components could help to model the HVAC, Plumbing and Electrical services? We believe it is equivalent tool to dynamo (for revit). How advanced it is? How it can save modelling time?
GenerativeComponents is Bentley Systems' Computational Design tool. For CONNECT Edition it is available as Companion Feature to AECOsim Building Designer, which is a comprehensive BIM tool covering architectural, structural, HVAC, plumbing/piping, and electrical disciplines. Currently, GenerativeComponents is integrated with the architectural and structural disciplines in AECOsim Building Designer. Other services could be modeled in GenerativeComponents using attributed geometry because BIM information can be attached to any geometric node type.
When one-off modeling known results, tools like GenerativeComponents rarely save time, especially if users are not already very familiar with GenerativeComponents.
There are several use cases, some of which are related, that commonly warrant use of GenerativeComponents:
plus 1: When any combination of the above conditions occurs.
Please take a look at the introductory material at https://communities.bentley.com/products/products_generativecomponents/w/generative_components_community_wiki.
There is also this post in the Forum in a thread "How to start with GenerativeComponents".
Thanks Mueller, despite your pretty nice explanation, i doubt that how generative components can be used in MEP discipline (mechanical, electrical & plumbing). Because I fetched MEP related video tutorials in Bentley e-learning website. Seems only architecture stuffs are there. As a MEP BIM modeller, i would like to learn only MEP stuffs. So please guide me where can I learn that. If possible please send the link of websites or documents.
Specific MEP training materials are:
Already I am aware of AECOsim MEP Videos.
Actually, I asked for GENERATIVE COMPONENTS - MEP specific videos...
Thanks, I request you to send the weblink of available learning materials (Documents or Videos) of "MEP - GENERATIVE COMPONENTS" only.
ANYTHING RELATED WITH CIVIL ?
