At Ingenium Design we put a lot of emphasis on 3D modeling. We can not express enough that “out of sight, out of mind” really represents a lack of clear communication. A 3D model clearly
communicates to all the engineering disciplines, designers, fabricators, contractors and the end user what the final product should look like. We understand that not everyone involved in a project has the time or know-how to study and understand all the engineering drawings for each discipline. The 3D model presents the information in a clear way and is really our primary communication tool during the design process. Once the 3D model is defined well enough to communicate the information critical to the project, then engineering drawings are made.
Often times the geometry is complex in facilities and this is especially true with existing facilities. The 3D model simplifies decision making in a project and allows the project team to see multiple options quickly. Well informed decisions help move the project forward along a superior path and can prevent costly rework. This efficient design approach allows the appropriate amount of time to be spent on review of maintenance and safety associated with the project. These reviews allow for creative improvements to the design that can be very beneficial to the maintenance personnel and operators. The 3D model also gives an opportunity to bring in stakeholders that are not intimately familiar with the project. They can see the project progress and quickly see if there are any issues they observe prior to the project being installed. This observation or buy-in from additional stakeholders has proven to be useful in eliminating surprises or missed opportunities.
We can provide as-built 3D models for existing facilities where we collect existing drawings and field information. The 3D model can be used to design upgrades and retrofits with a much better
understanding of what challenges you may run into with your project. Providing the 3D model in the engineering phase can save time and money in the detailing/fabrication phase since the 3D model can be shared with the detailer.
If you just want to make sure something will fit before you a pursue a project then give us a call. We can measure up your project’s interfaces and make an accurate model of what your idea will look like. This will give you the confidence you need to move the project forward without committing too much cost.
We give you clear graphical information, and there is no substitute. In the last decade, 3D modeling has become the standard. We are doing things on industrial projects that BIM never dreamed of. You will see your project long before the shovel hits the dirt.
We take the preliminary model, turn it into the structural model, and link it to our design software.
