BIMStorm San Diego is an online brainstorm using the web-based ONUMA Planning system to link knowledge from many sources such as Building Information Model software and hand sketches. see www.onuma.com for more details.
The following is a Readers Digest version of the first
BIMStorm San Diego webinar as interpreted by the
BIM Education Co-op. It is intended as a simple
overview and not as a source of detailed directions.

BIMStorm can be as easy as 1, 2, 3 - Hand sketching is good
Scan hand sketches and up load them to theweb file
sharing site SkyDrive
Import scans of sketches in to the ONUMA Planning System
and start using your ideas as the basis for powerful planning
Self-teach yourself as much as possible - Skype ONUMA staff
for online assistance and suggestions that can help others
Refer to past BIMStorms to learn about new planning concepts
Go to YouTube and search “BIMStorm” for additional insight
When ready, go to a BIMStorm San Diego site on Google Earth
Sketch an idea on Google Earth and capture it as a jpg -” Crt Alt S”
Make a couple more sketches and save as jpg “Crt Alt S”
Upload the jpgs of your digital sketches to SkyDrive
From the ONUMA Planning System link to the SkyDrive URL
with your images and bring them into your project folder
Open the ONUMA Planning System and find your project folder
Open your folder and access the materials you have inserted.
Manipulate the materials and data with OPS tools and features
Attach related data and send BIMmail with links to the model
Analyze costs and energy based on basic rules adjusted in OPS
Once you put your sketch in OPS, refine it and add data it is
then available for presentation on Google Earth in context
By the way, the ONUMA Planning System won a Buildy Award
at ConnectivityWeek on June 10, 2009. ConnectivityWeek is the
confluence of the building industry and energy industry. OPS
was recognized by popular vote as a tool that can help make
the connections that result in a reduced global carbon foot print.
