Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process of creating a building’s data, from the design stage to the building operation. However, even though the current program is not compatible with the Level of Development (LOD) of BIM introduced by the American Institute of Architects, it has still been adopted by several countries including Thailand. The current research introduces some methods to use BIM by using the Autodesk Revit Program based on the LOD which can be appropriately adjusted to the level of details based on usage. It consists of prototyping (family) based on the LOD as well as the steps of developing commands in the program, in order to adjust the LOD by revealing information in categories, building element types, and work types. Both of them can be perfectly adapted in any type of project.
