How Your BIM Software Must Comply with Regulatory BIM Guidelines

Thu Jan 3, 2019

Building Information Modeling (BIM) adoption in Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) is certainly growing, and that too in multiple key regions.

The graph below (about the use of BIM for transportation infrastructure) also illustrates the rapid growth of BIM since 2015, especially in 2017 when BIM took over the majority of projects.

Clashing Geometry in BIM Datasets

Mon Nov 26, 2018

 A major benefit of constructing a building virtually is the cost savings gained by identifying errors in the design before they are found on site. One of the more common errors that can be avoided is when two objects overlap in space or clash. For example a beam that should stop at a wall may have been wrongly dimensioned so that when placed on site, it passes through the wall. Right through or only partly through, either way it is very costly to fix if it is only identified as the wall is being built .

The Importance of CAD Files in Manufacturing

Fri Aug 10, 2018

3D computer-aided design (CAD) files are integral to today’s manufacturing processes. On the surface, the idea is sound: an engineering team will design a part and, in turn, will send the necessary 3D CAD files to the manufacturer to produce the part.

7 Common Manufacturing Problems Caused By File Translation Errors

Fri Aug 10, 2018

Manufacturers rely on 3D computer-aided design (CAD) files provided to them by design and engineering teams. This could occur internally (within a company possessing both design and production capabilities) and across different companies.

How Poor 3D Data Translation Can Derail Project Timelines and Costs

Fri Aug 10, 2018

To manufacture a design, the engineering or design team must send its computer-aided design (CAD) files to the manufacturer. In turn, the manufacturer would rely on the CAD file to feed its machining (subtractive) or 3D printers (additive) systems, which would produce the part.
