we are advising a manufacturer interested in strating into the "creating BIM objects of their product line" in 2013 budget.


What would be a budget (cost) per BIM object planning figure they should use?

And for the full BIM-oriented marketing transition?


300 various items in their product line.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Too little information for anybody to really help you.  MEP objects I believe take more effort. Parametric objects with lots of bells and whistles also take a lot more work.  Finally, the complexity of the objects is a factor.

I have been modelling valves, actuators, anchor, guides, thermometers, pressure gauges, tec for a year and some change now, for a company that spools from our BIM department. so i deal with 1/16" tolerance. I would say on average, i can pump out roughly 2 rfa's a work day(8 hrs). I would call it one and a half to be sure. I mean sometimes you can get lucky with finding rfa's online, Like Niblo is really good in the BIM department, same thing with mueller. But Mechanical equipemt is much easier, because you can have a type catalogue so the user can shoose which ones he/she wants to load into the project, while pipe accessories, like valves and what not are a little trickier, and require a lookup table that is linked to a Excel, CSV file to automactically change the model according to the piipe size it is connected to. Hope this little bit of information helps you.
