AEC firms can enjoy superior object based cad modeling with Renga Architecture from Ascon group

Ascon group has recently introduced its avant-grade 3D cad package alias Renga Architecture for AEC design. It is a solitary tool that integrates the ease of object-based Cad, 3D direct modeling and clarity of 2d drafting.

Renga Architecture is specifically designed for fixing diversified issues related with design and construction.

 With this newly launched software, the users will not be liable for outlying reference materials as well as nonexistent element configurations rather than the users will get the ability to produce new building designs devoid of encountering any difficulties.

 By applying Renga Architecture, the designers and architects can perform in an unconstrained 3D workspace as well as produce architectural projects instantly through various 3D design elements like slabs, walls, columns, windows, and roofs. With its in-built style editor and model explorer, Renga Architecture empowers the users to make design of the buildings by means of complicated architectural forms and resolve non-standard problems.

 Besides, generating realistic 3d models, Renga Architecture also creates data models of buildings by assigning information concerning cuts, facades, levels, and lots other.

 With the full-scale (1:1) 2D editor contained in Renga Architecture that works in drawing mode, the users can insert necessary graphics to drawing layouts by hand (lines and arcs, hatches and fills, elevation marks and sections, and dimensions). Drafting views are linked with the 3D model, and for any modification to the model, the geometry of the layouts is instantly updated.

Given below some striking features of Renga Architecture :-

  • It comes with an indistinct color spectrum, a well organized model disposition in 3D space, a flexible navigation system, and some useful commands categorized by function.
  • Realistic visualization with HBAO+ technology from NVIDIA Corp and horizon-Based Ambient Occlusion involving proper shading and refined shadow.

Designers can produce 3d models and attain design-based BIM workflow with new training manuals launched by Nemetschek Vectorworks

Nemetschek Vectorworks launched two new guidebooks alias Vectorworks Architect Tutorial Manual, Seventh Edition and 3D Modeling in Vectorworks, Seventh Edition to simplify the use of Vectorworks® Architect 2015 software. The well-known trainer Jonathan Pickup performs as the author of these two exclusive guidebooks.

The guidebooks will facilitate the users as well as various 3D modeling and BIM professionals to be familiar with various professional training tools.

Vectorworks Architect Tutorial Manual will guide the users to integrate Vectorworks 2015’s tools inside a design-based BIM workflow as well as how workflow is improved with the new types of drawing. The readers can also gather knowledge on the fundamentals of the software interface.

Vectorworks Architect Tutorial Manual is segregated into three parts – read a section of text, watch a video and then accomplish an exercise.

The tutorial manual starts with the debut to the Vectorworks Architect platform and advances with the execution of a mock project of a residential client along with how to produce the contract documents. Besides, drawing with lines and arcs, the readers will learn to create drawings with objects as well as enhance workflows by making projects through BIM principles.

While drawing a door with Vectorworks software, the users can include information concerning the door to the existing model part, affix door hardware as well as indicate the supplier and cost of the door through a report.

The second updated tutorial, 3D Modeling in Vectorworks, is also divided in three sections. Section one teaches the readers how to apply the software’s tools for generating 3D models independently. Section two guides the users for making a freeform architectural project with the use of the technology. Section three demonstrates the workflow in action and lets the readers to know how to break up projects. There are also exercises inside the book on the new Deform tool useful for learning the twisting, tapering, building and bending modes.

The Vectorworks Architect Tutorial Manual and 3D Modeling in Vectorworks are an integral segment of Nemetschek Vectorworks’ self-learning training options. For getting more updates and purchase option, visit www.vectorworks.net/training/guides.php

One can access the Books when Jonathan signs copies of his books on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. ET in the Paris Foyer at the Sofitel Philadelphia Hotel. All registered attendees of the Vectorworks Design Summit will be eligible to participate in the program.

How Turner Construction applied BIM and Lean construction method to successfully completed the Sibley Memorial Hospital project in Washington

Senior leaders of Turner Construction, an international construction services company from North America, had successfully implemented BIM and lean construction systems in Sibley Memorial Hospital project in Washington, DC that saved huge & significant times in construction scheduling.

The team of Turner Construction who worked in Sibley Memorial Hospital project Sibley, applied BIM to design and pre-fabricate modular corridor rack systems to assembly the mechanical, electrical and plumbing elements for individual floor of the hospital.

The project team members modeled 157, 20-foot racks through BIM as well as constructed and accumulated off-site and supplied for placement.

By incorporating lean practices with the modeling software, the project team members were able to perfectly execute works like assembling ductwork, cabling and piping early on, at just about the same time when construction excavation commenced.

For setting up the rack systems, the original schedule extended four to five weeks for each floor. But here, the project team members got benefitted with the modularized racks, to finish each floor in four to five days.

The complete workflow was greatly improved with the superior communication and collaboration process. Building Information Modeling together with Lean practices had facilitated to make the individual building progression superior which brought complete efficiency and the schedule was boosted up by two months.

It has also delivered enhancements in authentic commitments from subcontractors facilitating more organized planning for the project. The prefabrication of corridor racks and patient room headwall units quickened the interior fit out work immediately the concrete re-shores were eliminated.
