In this video, you’ll learn get a firsthand look at how Façade Design for Fabrication can help architects, engineers and construction managers to work more efficiently with façade fabricators.

Façade Design for Fabrication, powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, connects all processes from design through fabrication and construction. The result is a significant reduction in design process and fabrication waste.

This video will walk you through the process of designing a new stadium and then demonstrate how a façade engineer can use this same 3D model to produce shop drawings.

Upon logging in to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, you’ll see the façade designer create an initial sketch of the stadium in CATIA.

The designer create a User Defined Feature—in this case, a single panel and all of its design details that is repeated around the entire stadium. The shape of each panel can be modified individually to match the overall curve.

Each panel is generated from a template, but can be modified individually.

Each panel is generated from a template, but can be modified individually.

Through the use of Knowledge Patterns that control how the User Defined Feature behaves in the model, the designer will simulate multiple patterns to determine which design plan works best. In our stadium example, the designer quickly simulates several options before determining the best number of panels with which to work.

Although a façade engineer can continue to work on the stadium’s detail design in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud, the video will next explore how to use the conceptual model as the basis for a fabrication model.

Data generated during the conceptual phase can be exported to inform quantity take-offs.

The engineer then uses CATIA to create a detailed sheet metal model. Once placed in the assembly, the model and its associated information can be exported to easily create shop drawings.

The façade engineer will then create a basic Assembly Template that other team members can reuse. Once the template is created, the engineer runs a Knowledge Ware script that automatically generates assemblies around the stadium.

You will see how the engineer easily fills in missing parts by using a standard part from the existing catalog. Next, the engineer will extract the data needed for part fabrication. In the end, each sheet metal panel has its own drawing.

Each drawing can be exported with unfolded views that can be used for fabrication. By generating component information directly from the model, the engineer benefits from highly accurate cost predictions.

Each sheet metal panel drawing includes unfolded views from every angle.
