The role of BIM in prefabrication period

BIM is used to provide digital representation of the building process in 3D with the scope of a 4D (time) and 5D (cost) of data to minimize errors, enhance effectiveness and decision-making.

With improved perceptibility and clarity throughout a project to ensure that things remain on the schedule that’s been dedicated to and within the calculated budget being proposed, BIM tools provide substantial ROI for architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) professionals.

Besides, base-level geometry of a structure, BIM comprises of spatial relationships; mechanical, electric and plumbing (MEP) components and the quantities and cost estimates for the required building materials. If any modification is made, associated objects are updated along with it, all in a centralized model so that each team member of the project can get access of that model.

BIM produces a broad, digital picture of a project to facilitate the project stakeholders to have clear view concerning what resources are essential and when, as well as reduce the chances of over- or under-estimating the time and money the project will require.

The objective of prefab and modular methods is to lessen the time required to fabricate a structure on the jobsite, as well as integrate MEP components into the panel or module while fabrication is going on. BIM contains these components in the entire building model and makes trade-to-trade coordination better.

In prefab and modular construction, assembly requirements are altered since the piece, panel or module design is calibrated. As soon as the design gets ready, BIM can generate visual-based manuals, in place of written instructions so that the workers can get a clear idea of the new steps for fabrication.

Building in the virtual space is incorporating the new technologies like virtual and augmented reality.

Virtual reality can offer an immersive understanding of the BIM model and a supplementary resource for AEC professionals to examine the design options and find out design errors.

AR facilitates to layer BIM models with real objects in the jobsite as a reference point during the assembly process and avoids the construction errors.

Siemens launched Solid Edge 2019 (SE 2019) for convergent modeling

Siemens released the most updated version of its signature CAD software called as Solid Edge 2019 (SE 2019).

Solid Edge 2019 offer some exiting features as well as scope to upgrade to the current technologies. This comprises the capability to reverse engineer imported objects, and new technologies like convergent modelling, generative design, and improved flow simulation. SE 2019 also contains “best-in-class” PCB (printed circuit board) design tools, as well as updated management features, simulation analysis, and cloud-based storage and collaboration capabilities.


Solid Edge 2019’s massive lists of upgrades contain new tools utilized in convergent modelling that allows the engineers to integrate mesh models directly into their workflows. The new tools can also be used for milling, casting, and moulding of generative designs. So, the whole production process is modelled and simulated along with the final product.


Electrical engineers can also reap benefits with Solid Edge Wiring Design having design tools to instantly generate and examine the flow of wiring through electrical systems.


SE 2019 also comes with a new system called Solid Edge CAM Pro that facilitates the users to program CNC (computer numerical control) machine tools, and supports both simple NC programming and high-speed, multi-axis machining. By using the facilities like computerized print and color preparation for additive manufacturing, the designs can be delivered directly to your 3D printer (or 3D printing service).


P&ID Design and Solid Edge Piping Design tools produce superior modeling, simulation, and automated placement of piping systems to SE 2019. These systems can be utilized for automated 3D piping design (together with an included 3D parts library), as well as completely automated isometric drawing output for plant design. These tools can minimize design errors and facilitate to make competent piping design in high risk industries like oil & gas.


Other crucial features in Solid Edge 2019 include superior control over shapes, weight, and strength, with tools to allow the users to “develop new designs which were never possible earlier. Printing becomes fully automated with both multi-color and multi-material 3D printing supported from the outset.

How BIM was employed in San Francisco mega project to improve collaboration

A large-scale development project is going to be developed in Transbay area as part of a rezoning plan to support more density in the transport hub.

The project comprises of a 605-foot residential tower and a 910-foot hotel, condo and office tower — designers at London-based architectural firm Foster + Partners have settled to make a transition from 2D, CAD-based software to Autodesk’s 3D BIM Revit software.

It facilitates the architects to coordinate all design decisions which are undertaken through the software interface in a centralized location.

By employing the cloud-based Revit platform, project stakeholders will be able to avail the most updated information about the project and wide-ranging 3D visuals from any remote location, to allow evaluation of quality and make improved design details at the initial stage of the project life cycle.

BIM simplified the process for exchanging real-time feedback during the modeling process in coordinating the typical and complex “diagrid” cladding on the taller of the two towers.

3D modeling software is very helpful to make proper examinations concerning the design, the massing and the 3D articulation of the project.

The Architects, engineers and contractors utilize Revit to explore through various scenarios, make necessary modifications to any aspect of a building and make arrangement to reflect that change across the model in real time.

The modelling software allows the AEC communities to get access to entire project context and the most updated plans at any specified time and causes earlier decision-making and real-time collaboration to complete the project on schedule and sometimes earlier than schedule.

To reduce risk of structural or spatial conflicts with encompassing structures throughout construction, the designers modeled buildings on the perimeter apart from high-rise models, before breaking ground on the project.

In the same way, a clash detection feature in Autodesk’s Navisworks software facilitates the users to identify and rectify overlapping elements, interferences among moving objects and other design errors in a BIM model before construction. It significantly helps to reduce the constructability risk and the scope of costly rework later in the project timeline.

3D BIM models are “absolutely vital to contractors as they don’t have to get somebody searching for a set of 2D plans and trying to imagine situations and detect [issues].

There were 35 architects to be associated with the Ocean wide Center project, working to coordinate complicated structural components and fulfil design goals, client objectives and seismic requirements.
