3D & BIM

Effective tools for optimizing construction projects

3D modeling and BIM (Building Information Modeling) are effective tools for optimizing construction projects because they provide a virtual representation of a building. This allows architects, engineers, land surveyor, and builders to identify and solve potential problems for construction projects (residential, commercial, asset and facility management, infrastructure & transportation, industrial, renovation, environmental etc.) which can save time and money.

3D modeling and BIM also enable better collaboration between project stakeholders, which can improve communication and reduce technical errors. Additionally, BIM provides a database of information that can be used throughout the construction or renovation process to increase efficiency and productivity.

3D modeling and BIM not only improve workflow and enhance service to clients, but also produce realistic and accurate representations and facilitate the presentation of ideas and final results.

    3D Modeling

    3D modeling is the process of mathematically representing any three-dimensional object using specific CAD programs. The product created is called a 3D model. This 3D model can be of 2 kinds/types: solid – which is represented by the volume of the object created in a solid form (like a regularly shaped stone), or shells/boundaries (mesh) – which is represented from constant surfaces to certain edges of the object that define its shape.

    3D models are the precision tools for architects and construction developers. Because it facilitates the creation of a realistic image of an object, it is used in a diverse range of applications and industries, including architecture, industrial design and geology. It is useful for assessing project potential, efficiently integrating work and solving various technological problems more quickly.

    BIM (Building Information Modeling) - what it is

    BIM (Building Information Modeling) takes the 3D modeling process to the next level where each 3D model can be queried and contains certain building and functional information that the user can use to better exploit the 3D object. Basically, BIM is the 3D model linked to a complex and easy-to-use database that can even be extended to include 4D (time) and 5D (cost).

    BIM helps digitally represent the physical and functional characteristics of a building, infrastructure or facility. The results are files that can be shared and used to make better engineering decisions. This technology is useful to manage the design and construction of buildings and facilities more easily which streamlines work, speeds up processes and even improves collaboration and communication between teams throughout the work.

    3D modelling and BIM - benefits and advantages

    3D modeling and BIM are valuable tools for any engineer, architect or builder. The technology streamlines processes at every step, from the conceptual phase to actual construction on site. It provides accurate data that allows analysis of many parameters, including project sustainability. The results are also compatible with other leading technologies and facilitate efficient communication between team members.

    A big advantage of 3D modeling is that it allows digital representation of objects that do not yet exist, making it easier for designers and architects to visualise buildings quickly and realistically. It also reproduces and displays the exact dimensions of each element, making it easier to design and complete the work.

    However, 3D modeling is only a digital version of the object under construction and cannot be extended to establish intelligent building operation. This is where BIM becomes useful, storing detailed information on how the building or construction can best be exploited, but also to observe existing facilities both technologically and economically.

    3D Modeling and BIM - applicability and practical use

    3D modeling is useful to represent the final appearance of a building and architectural objects, but also to evaluate the results before work starts. 3D models can also be used for digital visualisations, commercial animations and client-friendly project presentations. Furthermore, 3D modeling provides an informative model of a building and makes it easier to estimate the amount of materials needed for various maintenance works such as facade refurbishment.

    BIM services can be used to train facility operators on the project and coordinate construction operations more efficiently. They are also useful for managing the life cycle of a building, from concept to completion.

    3D modeling and BIM - important features

    3D modeling is based on using a collection of points in three-dimensional space. These are connected by lines, triangles and curved surfaces. Based on these, using texturing and shading tools, they form a complete, photorealistic, high-density 3D model.

    BIM holds detailed and accurate information about a building’s structural features including walls, doors, windows, structural and electrical systems, ventilation, cooling, heating and/or plumbing. A BIM object can also be accompanied by parameters such as strength, heat, density, permeability, porosity, emissivity, electrical resistivity or reflectivity.

    All this is extremely useful information in any project to track and manage the functionality, durability and sustainability of the construction.
