leading a #3dprinting revolution in #AEC

Even as digital technology is transforming AEC processes, emerging digital platforms stand poised to transform construction products themselves.

Paris-based XtreeE is seeking to lead an industrial revolution in construction, civil and mechanical engineering by using 3D printing for large-scale architectural applications.

Through integrated consulting, manufacturing and technology, XtreeE provides education on how to use additive construction in the construction industry, while also developing end-user solutions and the technology needed to fabricate products.

Injury from musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs)—caused by lifting heavy items, performing tasks repetitively, working in awkward body postures, etc.—plagues many industries. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that in 2013, 33 percent of all worker injury and illness cases were the result of MSDs.

How Virtual Reality Will Dramatically Redefine Architecture

Guest post by Quartz creative services; originally published on the 3D Perspectives blog

As we construct future buildings, we will start to see more mingling between architecture and virtual reality.

Imagine you’re a hotelier. Your newest property—let’s call it a high-end resort in the south of France—has gone into construction, but is not yet fully designed. Your firm is based in New York. The old way of designing the property would have involved several transatlantic flights and PDFs sent between you, the architecture firm, your marketing team, and any other stakeholders. Choosing the layout of the hotel rooms, making furniture selections, even just picking out materials and a color scheme, “can be a long and expensive process,” says Benoît Pagotto, a co-founder of IVR Nation.

Intelligent Construction: Transforming the AEC Industry in the Digital Age

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Excerpted from the keynote address, “Strategic Business Transformation for the Building & Construction Industry,” delivered to the BIM-MEP AUS Construction Innovation 2016 Forum on August 4, 2016 in Sydney, Australia.

The fourth industrial revolution – the Digital Age – is creating the drivers to transform the Construction Industry as it seeks to exploit the significant advantages to be derived from the effective and efficient use and management of data.

Industry-leading technology, developed for other sectors, is exponentially improving value and efficiency, and can be employed to propel Construction into the digital age.

This impacts not only the Construction Industry but also the logistic supply chains which support it, improving capability and skills, and contributing to the economies and construction potential of the countries involved.

The considerable amount of data which is created during the design, development, construction and utilization of the built asset, if properly configured and integrated, can be harnessed to drive value, cut costs and waste, and used to create a digital asset. This data-driven digital equivalent, when used by the end customer, can provide a dynamic platform on which to manage legacy, sustain the present and plan the future.


How Zahner shows clients, “Your fantastic projects are buildable”

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

The following video features A. Zahner Company using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to better communicate and collaborate with AEC project owners and team members:

“Your Fantastic Projects Are Buildable”

CEO William Zahner predicts future facades will increase in complexity, including more dynamic and kinetic aspects, and requiring an integrated platform. Such a solution will “open up opportunities for the design and fabrication community to do some really amazing things.”

The Zahner team found that developing precise 3D models gives reassures to clients that their risk is mitigated.

In addition, they are better able to communicate openly, transparently with clients, contractors, architects, subcontractors throughout the project.

Because of its complexity and the amount of coordination required, the Chrysalis Amphitheater was the flagship project where Zahner used the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.


To BIM or not to BIM?

I can’t claim originality to this Shakespearean title which has suitable gravity for many companies in the construction industry. It was thought up by Dr Steve Lo of Bath University for a one-day conference I attended organised by the “Future Envelope” community of façade designers and manufacturers.

Drawing from members of the European Façade Networks, the Society of Façade Engineers and Centre for Window Cladding technology, the aim of the conference was to discuss how BIM can help or even hinder the design and construction process of building façades.

To start off, early presentations included how professionals and companies can gain accreditation to be BIM Level 2 compliant. This is a requirement for any building design and construction contract delivered to the UK government since April 2016. Hence it’s a hot topic and the explanations given by BRE (Building Research Establishment) on their BIM Level 2 certification process were received well.


World Cities Summit Hosts Government Leaders & Innovators Solving City Planning Challenges

to Solve #CityPlanning Challenges | @Dassault3DS @aeccafe

Today’s cities consume as much as 75% of natural resources, 70% of global energy consumption and energy-related carbon emissions—and are growing at a rate of 1.3 million people each week.

To grow cities more responsibly, sustainably and satisfyingly for residents, government leaders from around the world are coming together to discuss shared challenges, and potential solutions, at the 2016 World Cities Summit.

imgresThe summit, scheduled for July 10-14, 2016, welcomes to Singapore leaders of some of the world’s most forward-thinking cities, as well as academics, AEC professionals and other industry experts to discuss city challenges and share solutions.

Under the theme Livable & Sustainable Cities: Innovative Cities of Opportunity, the event is a platform for discussions of how cities can perform long-term planning in a way that better serves their residents, and improves resilience, through policy, new technology and social innovation.


Reimagining Urban Planning with 3DEXPERIENCity: New urban morphologies for connected work- and lifestyles

Traditional models of urbanism are challenged today by the growing and increasingly diversified population in cities. Urban planners will find they need a new planning model that takes into consideration the needs of hyper-dense cities. They will need to re-think how we imagine, plan, design, analyze, simulate, realize and manage cities in order to better plan for the future. New urban planning tools also are needed to foster better communication among governments, business and citizens.

One solution with the potential to transform urban planning is the 3DEXPERIENCE city map. By creating a data-rich virtual model of the city in all its complexity, and linking it back to actual existing conditions in real-time, we can understand through simulations the potential effects of various systemic changes before implementing them.

Benefits of Virtual Design and Construction to Civil Construction Projects

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

to #Civil Projects | @3DSAEC @Dassault3DS

The ability to visualize the built environment is critical to the design and construction of civil construction projects. While 3D simulation is widely used in the design phase of infrastructure projects, it is still gaining momentum in the construction phase.

Advancements in 3D and 4D simulation technology, however, now make it possible for project stakeholders to better visualize the construction process of complex buildings and infrastructure projects. This advanced visual communication provides a valuable asset to the building design process and is one that civil engineering projects should adopt.

More construction project sites now use virtual design and construction simulation. Virtual simulation provides a 3D and 4D computer-generated representation and offers a very realistic view of buildings, bridges, infrastructure, and other graphical models.

Screen Shot 2016-05-30 at 2.35.28 PM

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.
