Exploring BIM Dimensions: 3D, 4D, 5D, 6D, 7D and 8D BIM

Exploring BIM Dimensions: 3D, 4D, 5D, 6D, 7D, and 8D, Understanding the Different Dimensions of Building Information Modeling in Construction. Building Information Modeling (BIM) brought about a radical change in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) sectors by providing 3D digital versions of reality. BIM's capabilities are more than just geometry. The 3D to 8D dimensions of BIM are excellent aspects that allow professionals to visualize not just the physical but also the temporal and cost stages, as well as the operations and management of the facility lifecycle, sustainability, and operation of the building. Every dimension (of data) allows for better decision-making and performance analysis during the project life cycle.
