BIM Modeling

Our focus on building information modeling is crucial for the fast-growing tensile architecture field. 



In order to advance technology in the field of tensile membrane architecture, and to embrace the benefits of Building Information Modeling (BIM), the objective of this paper is to establish a benchmark for future development by reviewing the software tools specifically for the design and analysis of tensile membrane architecture. The paper first synthesizes the definition of general BIM maturity levels, followed by a review of the seven most commonly used software programs that specialize in tensile membrane design. Finally, the BIM maturity level across the field of tensile membrane architecture is examined followed by a discussion of future steps in the development of these technologies.
