This article shows how using HP Anyware in conjunction with NVIDIA Omniverse brings true work flexibility to AEC teams, allowing members from different locations to securely work with the color-accurate, lossless, and distortion-free user experience needed to create and iterate together efficiently.
This article highlights how the 3D information models developed for BIM can be evolved beyond the design and construction phases to extend their application in operational strategies through infrastructure digital twin adoption.
Cloud technology has completely transformed the way construction projects are delivered. In this article, Nigel Rees, Product Director Cloud Services at ALLPLAN, provides an insight into how the cloud is changing and what benefits new cloud-based workflows will bring to the AEC industry.
This article describes the recent updates to Allplan Bridge that enable it to easily model precast girder bridges, a special type of bridge whose geometry is only indirectly governed by the axis. With just one bridge model, an entire BIM-supported bridge design process can be carried out with this solution.
This article explores the cutting-edge AEC technology applications developed by CORE Studio, a dedicated software development group at Thornton Tomasetti. The applications including Konstru, Swarm, Asterisk, Trace, and many more for design, analysis, collaboration and visualization.
Layer is a new AEC application that was launched close to six months ago to address what seems to be an obvious need in the industry—organizing and integrating the vast amount of disparate data that is typically collected on site during the retrofit or construction of a building project.
Fender Katsalidis describes the implementation of AEC technology on the “Merdeka 118” project, a 118-storey, mega-tall skyscraper under construction in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Upon completion, it will become the tallest building in Malaysia and Southeast Asia, and the second-tallest building in the world.
This article questions why we still don’t have a smart building design tool which does not require us to painstakingly model every detail in our buildings, but can automatically create much of it from a conceptual sketch using a rule-based expert system.
