Heritage BIM Is Ideal For Documentation And Development Of Historical Structures

The application of Building information modeling (BIM) becomes more versatile when it offers huge benefits in the documentation and development of historical structures in a system known as historical BIM (HBIM). The process is complicated for transforming point clouds into a 3D model as there are lots of asymmetrical geometries in the concerned buildings. So, various semi-automatic parameterization tools are required.

Historical building information modeling (HBIM) stands for a semantic-aware database of historical buildings, through which the geometric model is associated with explanatory multi-source information. Historical buildings generally comprise of stratified artifacts along with non-regular and complicated geometry, contrasting to present constructions which normally contain regular geometry. Reality-based spatial data that is generated from cutting-edge geomatics 3D modelling methods can deliver a perfect replica of those buildings, containing all the related information, even though the diversified characterizing shapes are a big challenge at the time of modeling the geometry. Often these shapes are remodeled by hand, as there are limitations for impressive automatic recognition. The aims, structure and scale – and consequently the projected level of detail of the model – significantly impact the system to data acquisition (sensors, accuracy) and data processing.

The workflow for HBIM projects commence from data procurement from different sensors in relation to the necessity of context and the projected outputs. Then, the surveyed point clouds should have been pre-processed and curtailed with different systems and standalone software, and possibly modified for segmentation by means of automatic or semi-automatic object recognition into a BIM platform. Besides, elements are modeled and transformed into an approximation of reality in line with parametric rules, so it is likely to adjust each illustration of the model. As a final point, the shapes and the identities of objects should be associated with proper and sound relationships in accordance with the semantic definition of entities. After this, the model is ready to be explored with other information for analysis and monitoring over time. On the other hand, the manual creation of 3D models linked to as-built BIM is complicated and laborious. As the costs and skills necessary for manipulating the data signify that this approach is not justifiable and more automatic or semi-automatic tools for parameterization of metric and non-metric information are essential.

BIM platforms come up with some standalone embedded tools or plug-ins toward 3D modellers, viewers, analysers. They facilitate the best use of point cloud and processing with the intension of generating geometric modelling, feature extraction and parameterization in heritage buildings. Some commercial ones comprise of ArchiCad BIMx by Graphisoft, Scan-to-BIM by IMAGINiT, Revit by Autodesk, BIM360 by Autodesk, Recap by Autodesk, PonitSense by FARO, Leica CloudWorx, Green Spider, Bentley MicroStation V8i and Tekla Structures. Some open-source alternatives are Edificius, Tekla BIMsight and Autodesk Navisworks Freedom by IMAGINiT.

Future Construction Project Should Rely On 3 P’s Of BIM (People, Process & Policies)

To reap the complete benefits of BIM for next generation of construction, the emphasis should be given on the 3 ‘Ps’ of BIM i.e. people, process and policies.
People is the first ‘P’ of BIM: To implement BIM in a positive manner, the organization should need the entire team to realize its significance and accept it’s adaptability. The people are mostly responsible to bring in the advancement and so it should be given first priority against the processes and policies.
It is very crucial to develop sound relationships with professionals, in-house teams or a design support solutions provider. It is considered as one of the most vital factors while commencing technological conversion.
Process is the second ‘P’ of BIM: Sometimes, it is found that even skilled AEC professionals find it difficult to execute BIM though they are fully conscious concerning the benefits of the BIM. They mostly prefer to adopt the shortest and simplest method by employing the new technology with old processes. They give priority to use the obsolete processes because they are accustomed and comfortable with them.
As for instance, it is found that professionals or AEC firms using a building program in Microsoft Excel on one monitor, and although, they require Autodesk AutoCAD or Revit. They are engaged in generating and regenerating the data while they can employ Excel-to-Revit tools and produce spaces from Excel in Revit automatically. Lots of processes produce a lot of data waste over the lifespan of construction projects.
The third ‘P’ of BIM is policies: While going to adopt BIM-friendly processes, company policies are considered as the major barrier to overcome.
BIM becomes effective when all the people, who are associated with the construction project, can distribute information without restrictions as well as collaborate. Contracts generally prohibit information distribution by adhering to the clause of confidentiality, liability and litigation concerns. So, it is vital to understand that design solutions are essential to the protect companies as well as inspire them to collaborate.
Companies can also safeguard themselves with the use of filters to the information they distribute; as for instance, building plans should be marked with green, yellow, or red, to specify whether the information is final, provisional, or incomplete. By making collaboration with stakeholders, all parties can mutually settle definitions, processes, policies, and parameters before the commencement of any project. This initiative can minimize risk and at the same time reorganize the workflows that BIM depends upon.

How To Generate 3D Interior Views In Revit Architecture

In this Revit video tutorial, Pierre Derenoncourt, a renowned AEC design technology specialist and environmental designer, briefly explains how to apply a 3D camera inside Revit to generate an interior view within a model.
In Revit Architecture, a camera can be placed once it is activated from your ribbon, View tab, Create panel. Click the small arrow adjacent to the 3D view, and click camera button on the drop down menu. Now the camera can be set with two simple clicks with camera position and target position.
As soon as the camera is set, Revit will open a new view automatically. This view will be appeared as what your camera see. Generally, we should have modified the view. Ensure modify is active and select the view boundary. Some blue grips on the rectangle sides will be visible. By dragging the grip, the boundary can be resized.
You can modify the movement of your camera around by holding [shift] + mid button.

How To Perform Hatching In AutoCAD For Designing A Kitchen In 3D

This video tutorial teaches you the procedure to perform hatching in 3D, by creating the tile effect on the walls , floor on the 3D kitchen tutorial.
This CAD video shows the detailed processes for creating a 3D model of kitchen with tile effect on the walls, floor. The video is specifically designed to teach you how to create hatching in 3D. You will be able to various kitchen elements like cabinets, handles, doors, windows etc. 3D.
AutoCAD users and drafters generally apply hatching to demonstrate the type of material that is used to form an object, like insulation, metal, or concrete. Alternatively, hatching facilitates highlight or simplify the extent of a specific component in the drawing.

To carry out a hatching in AutoCAD on a desired plane in 3D dimension, it is necessary to coordinate the user coordinate system or UCS on that specific plane. In this context, the most preferred method will be applying face option of UCS command. Just click on the visualize tab and select face option from drop down menu and click on the chosen plane.

Now, X, Y will be aligned on that plane. Press enter to accept it.
The hatching is performed with the following two methods :-
Ray Casting Method – Here, select a point on the chosen area where a specific pattern will be filled.
Boundary Method – Indicate the boundaries where the pattern should be filled.
