It’s rare to find a building without at least a few mechanical systems. In fact, some mechanical systems -- such as HVAC -- provide crucial quality-of-life services, without which buildings may not be fit for habitation or work.
From being a best practice in the AEC space to a growing number of governments mandating it, Building Information Modeling (BIM) adoption is growing. In fact, the BIM market is projected to grow to USD $10.36 billion in value by 2022.
In its report, Global BIM Market: Size, Trends, and Forecasts (2016-2020), Daedal Research stated that the global building information market (BIM) is slated to grow to $8 billion by 2020.
After the model is translated, users have the option of employing a healing workflow to further
improve the quality of the model. Within the 3D ACIS Modeler, this healing process consists of
three phases: stitching, geometry simplification, and gap tightening.
Though required in many workflows, translating files is not a simple task. Below are three essential functionalities your application must have to correctly translate 3D data.
The increased use of mobile devices in engineering processes has the interesting side effect of
requiring engineering applications to share data with other systems.
The construction industry has long taken advantage of prebuilt components, from prehung doors to prefabbed roof trusses. But the latest trend is to apply manufacturing workflows to larger standardized and custom components, with digital modeling empowering factory-built bespoke components.
- Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the process of using 3D models for planning, managing and implementing construction projects. BIM relies on the use of software to visualize as well as simulate designs and collaborate with other project stakeholders.
Today, the construction industry requires the input of many different companies, each fulfilling a specific, but critical role in completing the project
