Without this selection the exported file, would not include any information attached to the objects, which is one of the main distinguishes between 3D CAD models and BIM models. When using these set of drawings the number of windows increased to However, Tweeds analyses the process further and breaks it into four stages.

Eastman et al explains how even though building models provide ample measurements for quantity take-offs, they are not capable yet to replace estimating.

A review of the taking-off process, showing some of the changes over the years, is provided, and how this is prive in delivering construction projects. To help cope with these barriers, it is important that estkmating professional institutions provide educational and training support for their members, thus encouraging BIM implementation Ashworth et al, Looking at figure 4.
