What is 3D Modeling, 4D Modelling and Visual Animation?
3D Model: A virtual model that contains representations of physical objects in 3D (x,y,z) as surfaces or solids. Common types of 3D models include but are not limited to Existing Conditions Model(s), Design Model(s), and Construction Model(s). Construction Model (s) typically contain temporary site features and equipment (e.g. detours, temporary signals, utility excavations, falsework, etc.)
4D Model Simulation: An aggregation of virtual models that are linked to the current CPM Progress Schedule that shows an ordered, time-scaled appearance of model elements/objects. The CPM Progress Schedule that is integrated into the 3D model (4D model) shall be kept current (all revisions and updates) on a monthly basis. A 4D model must contain one or more virtual models and at least one link to a CPM schedule.
Visual Animation: A walk-through of a virtual model that also supports movement and display and contains photo-simulations to more accurately depict existing and construction build-out conditions both under and above ground.
What exactly is BIM 5D Modeling?
Building Information Modeling (3D BIM) combines 3D CAD components with scheduling constraints and budgetary concerns. It, therefore, allows the entire construction team – including everyone from architects to owners – to conceptualize the expense and progress of all the construction activities over a particular time period. Professional BIM modeling services have the potential to revolutionize the management of construction projects regardless of size, location, or complexity.
Advantages of BIM Modeling
The BIM Modeling system allows contractors to accurately estimate expenses incurred throughout each stage of construction. This, therefore, allows them to identify key variables and adjust the model to accommodate the client’s unique desires. The 3D BIM modeling technology integrates all aspects of the project: design, project controls, estimating, scheduling, construction, and accounting. This model then allows our contractors to complete model-based estimating, an important part of any cost plan. In order for model-based estimating to yield valuable insights, the 5D model must be constructed accurately, which is why the help of seasoned experts should never be underestimated.
