I tried modeling a G+3 building with BIM approach, i.e. with the proper floor, building and site objects. The BIM model includes architectural model as well as the structural model. One can work on any floor as per the user's need.
Now, I've several questions:
1. I want to know is this the right way of BIM modeling in FreeCAD?
2. If no, then kindly tell some better approach than this as I faced several difficulities modeling it with this approach.
3. The doors & windows objects are not shown in the exact manner when merged with floor object, i.e. the parent wall merged and the new wall formed after adding doors, also get visible in floor object. Therefore, doors & windows loose their visibilities.
4. One has to copy or add columns in the successive floor if the height of the storey is unequal.
5. This leads to several redoing operations.
I believe there should be some better and accurate way for BIM modeling in FreeCAD. If someone practice BIM modeling in FreeCAD for professional & commercial purposes, then kindly give some notes or tutorial video for a sample G+2 building with simple structural & architectural components like footings, columns, beams, slabs, walls, doors & windows.
