Rising urban populations around the world have ushered in the concept of Smart Cities, in which digital innovations are used to address long-standing urban challenges. The related construction boom has put increasing demands on CCT teams to not only build structures and systems beautifully and efficiently, but also design them for long-term sustainability and solve a range of issues for multiple stakeholders.
3DEXPERIENCE solutions enable the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industries to achieve sustainable building development and efficient building lifecycle management.
The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform helps cities plan for growth by providing a holistic tool for effective design and management of the city realm.
The 3DEXPERIENCE solutions enable Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry stakeholders to work together as a team and achieve integrated project delivery.
The 3DEXPERIENCE solutions enable prefabrication companies to create better quality products faster, with less waste and at a lower cost.
With its origins in manufacturing, The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is the perfect solution for modular building companies
Architecture Research Material Applications firm, AR-MA, adopted the 3DEXPERIENCE platform solution for Façade Design for Fabrication for the new Wynyard Walk pedestrian tunnel in Sydney. AR-MA Director Robert Beson stated:
“Dassault’s 3DEXPERIENCE allowed us to create a comprehensive 3D model of all parts and assemblies at the highest possible level of detail. This is a clash-detected model that included material properties as well as fabrication constraints and sheet-metal manufacturing.
Knowledge re-use via 3DEXPERIENCE’S powerful engineering template design framework and tools enabled us to generate and manage large numbers of complex, unique assemblies with embedded data including 2D shop drawings, bills of material, and fabrication ready geometry.
The sheer number of parts in the project required a robust platform to navigate, manipulate and visualise all elements in a single model. In this scenario, 3DEXPERIENCE proved to be faster and more efficient than any other platform we have worked with.”
“3D Generative Innovator” delivers a browser-based on-the-cloud generative modelling environment that uniquely combines graphical visual scripting and interactive 3D-modelling, with the ability to use one or the other interchangeably at any time. Any 3D Model can also be described by a program/script which defines the 3D elements and the relationships between them. Visual Scripting makes this easier, as it is a visual approach to creating programs by manipulating program elements graphically rather than by specifying them textually.
Design for Fabrication, an Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry solution experience powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, creates a single source of truth for construction projects. Leveraging a collaborative, cloud-based, integrated BIM environment, Design for Fabrication seamlessly connects data from the design phase to shop drawings, enabling design models to become the basis for fabrication. This solution has proven to signiﬁcantly reduce the waste and rework found in the traditional design and construction process, and yield big rewards for project owners and stakeholders.
The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform provides an opportunity for all stakeholders in a construction project to have a better experience whilst delivering improved business performance outcomes
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform will allow companies to keep their existing systems and synchronise all project data and information to provide a real time, single view of all activities – documents, tasks, projects, issues etc. Legacy and point solutions can be maintained or replaced over time to generate further reductions in complexity and business operating costs.
Optimised Construction, an Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry solution experience powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, creates a single source of truth for Architecture, Engineering and Construction projects. A collaborative, cloud-based, integrated BIM environment, Optimised Construction enables project delivery teams to simulate, optimise and manage prefabrication, on-site assembly, equipment, labour and costs. This solution has proven to signiﬁcantly reduce the waste and rework found in the traditional construction process, increase visibility and yield big rewards for project owners and stakeholders.
“Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. A BIM is a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life-cycle; defined as existing from earliest conception to demolition” (Wikipedia)
“A BIM is a digital representation of a physical and functional characteristics of a building. As such it serves as a shared knowledge resource for information about a building forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life-cycle from inception onward” (BuildSMART)
“BIM is an acronym for Building Information Modelling. It Describes the means by which everyone can understand a building through the use of a digital model which draws on a range of data assembled collaboratively. Modelling an asset in digital form enables those who interact with the building to optimize their actions, resulting in a greater whole life value for the asset” (National Building Specification, Royal Institute of British Architects)
A model needs only two essential characteristics to be described as a BIM model. The first is that it must be a three-dimensional representation of a building (or other facility) based on objects, and second, it must include some information in the model or the properties about the objects beyond the graphical representation
With its origins in the aerospace and automotive industries, The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform supports BIM Level 3 without any customisation.
The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform allows users to create a BIM model to any level of detail and store associated data for the entire project. The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is a truly transformative approach to construction providing the following enhanced capabilities:
