3D BIM models – a modern approach to construction

Architects, Structural Engineers, Project Designers, Civil Engineers and Construction Contractors – What is that one thing common to all these professionals? It is designing and constructing project sites. All the experts associated with either the designing or the building of a particular site are more inclined towards the traditional process of layering bricks and pouring cement. But has one ever wondered that before you hop onto achieving the end result, one can enhance the construction process by adopting a more transformative, convenient and seamless methodology which is 3D BIM Modeling?

It is the 21st century, and we see construction as a perpetual activity. With the evolving human needs and technological inventions, what would work 21 years ago while building a site, will not work today! Hence, there is constant growth in improvising the construction. If we can shift to using better construction materials, then why not approve advanced technology and digitalisation? Skip the outdated methods and use 3D Pointshot’s 3D BIM Modeling Service.

A 3D Modeling service is a process of using technology to create a three dimensional model of an asset or a location. BIM stands for Building Information Modelling, so the importance of 3D Modeling is highlighted mainly in the infrastructure and building industries. 3D BIM modeling is an artificially intelligent tool that gathers holistic information about an asset that facilities the design, construction and operation basis. This model collects the graphical and non-graphical information and builds 3D models, which are then shared on a cloud-based platform called the Common Data Environment (CDE).

The virtual models used with the help of a 3D Modeling Services include intelligent 3D objects, instead of just 2D lines, which help to digitally visualise the lifecycle of an asset, right from planning and designing to construction. The 3D BIM modeling helps in creating 3D views of a structure, such as walls, windows, pipes, pumps, flooring and everything essential to help frame a perspective for construction.

The importance of 3D modelling

Let us discuss the advantages of using a 3D Modelling service in construction:

1. Improved Accuracy: No matter how complex your construction is, using 3D Modeling services will deliver highly accurate and optimal data without the need for rework. The 3D model will represent correct data to prepare quality construction sites.

2. Reduced Risks and Costs: It has been observed that a construction project requires a considerable budget. You can stay assured using a 3D BIM Modeling as the entire construction process will be sorted beforehand. You can have an exact estimate of the project cost as well. Also, a 3D BIM model will avoid clashes which will avoid delays and rework, making it a time and cost-saving plan.

3. Preconstruction Visualisation: A 3D BIM model will help your stakeholders visualise the project before you begin with the physical operations. This representation gives a fair and accurate idea of how the model will look once ready so you can make changes, if needed, ahead of time.

4. Communication: In the traditional method of construction, every team member would work in isolation, not knowing what the actual structure would look like. But by using a 3D BIM modeling service, each team member can visualise the 3D model and communicate and discuss the plans and operations amongst themselves. This way, each team member will know what is expected from them, and this will avoid confusion and clashes.

5. Improved Efficiency: A 3D modelling service instantly optimises the entire construction project by increasing productivity and efficiency and reducing wastage and expenses. It saves time by removing the need for costly paper drawing and rising dependence on virtual models. This also helps in saving crucial construction timelines. Moreover, it promotes healthy and effective collaboration, communication, and a controlled and safe work environment.

Stages of BIM:

Level 1 BIM: 2D construction draft + 3D modeling

CAD standards are managed at the first level, and electronic data sharing is carried out from a shared data environment, usually driven by the contractor.

Level 2 BIM: teams work on their 3D models

At the second level, all team members use 3D CAD. Information about the design environment is shared through a standard file format.

Level 3 BIM: working with a shared 3D model

BIM third level is even more collaborative. Level 3 means that everyone uses a shared project model.

The benefits of level 3 BIM are:

  • 3D visualization of the entire project
  • Ease of collaboration between multiple teams and parts of the business.
  • We have simplified communication and understanding of design.
  • It reduces rework and revisions

Levels 4, 5, and 6 BIM: scheduling, cost prediction, and sustainability information

Level 4 BIM brings a new element into the information model: time. This information about time includes scheduling data to help outline the duration of time each phase of the project will take or sequencing various components.

Level 5 BIM gives cost estimations, budget analysis, and budget tracking to the information model. When working with BIM, project owners can track and predict costs incurred during the project's duration.

Level 6 BIM provides accurate predictions of energy consumption requirements and empowers stakeholders to build energy-efficient and sustainable structures.

Benefits of 4, 5, and 6 level BIM:

  • Efficient site planning and scheduling
  • Efficient hand-offs between steps in the construction stage
  • Cost visualization in real-time
  • Cost analysis simplified
  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Better operational management of the building.

What is the future of BIM?

The construction industry's future is digital, and BIM is the future of design and long-term facility management; it is driven by technology and transparent processes. 3D Pointshot 3D Modeling services provide a scan to BIM services in many Projects

As hardware, software, and cloud applications evolve to handle increasing amounts of raw data, the use of BIM will become even more pronounced.

3D BIM Modeling Service from 3D Pointshot helps in minimizing cost and maximizing the efficiency of a project.
