Details of AutoCAD coordinates

There are 3 types of AutoCAD coordinates system which are given below :-

ABSOLUTE COORDINATES
RELAVIE COORDINATES
POLAR COORDINATES

ABSOLUTE COORDINATES

All input points are mentioned in your drawing with standard Cartesian coordinates x and y.

With the use of absolute coordinate, points are inputted by typing x, y (Enter).

RELATIVE COORDINATES

As soon as the first point is inputted, your next points will be inputted by indicating the next coordinate compare/relative from the first points. The relative coordinate is commenced with the symbol “@” to inform AutoCAD that it is a relative coordinate. With relative coordinate, the points are inputted by typing @x,y (Enter).

POLAR COORDINATES: Polar coordinates are applied when it is required to draw the next points at specify angle. Polar coordinates system in AutoCAD indicates distance length at which angle. With polar coordinate, points are inputted by typing @distance < angle (Enter).

How To Use IES Light In V-Ray For Revit

This video is created by Chaos Group that shows how to apply lights (IES lights) in V-ray for Revit.

IES light type is applied to load and render naturalistic light distribution profile files (IES files). The icon is available in the V-Ray main toolbar.

V-Ray for Revit is compatible with IES lights in the project. If the IES light files are untraceable in any of the search paths in v-ray, it applies a generic IES file that lusters light uniformly in all directions.

An IES file refers to a text file that defines the depth of a light source at points on a spherical grid. It offers more photorealistic lighting effects in rendered images as compared to other types of light distribution.

V-Ray for Revit facilitates to enable and disable light groups in the Revit. Light groups are obtained by selecting the Rendering Settings in the view properties of the view to be rendered, and clicking on the ‘Artificial Lights’ button. This button is activated if the lighting scheme is arranged to a mode with artificial lights allowed.

Steps associated with MEP Coordination Systems

MEP coordination is considered as one of the most vital process in construction that should be given special attention. The system makes sure that the structural framework and architectural design are not conflicted with its MEP-FP systems. Based on the level of details (LOD) and need of the client, the MEP coordination method differs in every organization. MEP Coordination Systems contains the following stages :-

1. Assessment of Consultant Design Drawings and Structural/Architectural Plans: Preliminary, the MEP coordination service facilitates the organization to obtain single line drawings from the MEP-contractors or consultants. Afterward, they study the structural and architectural plans thoroughly. Besides, they study the MEP specifications except for the assessment of drawings, layouts with reliability. Finally, MEP coordination services provider designs a brief plan for coordination.

2. 3D Prototype Formation: To fulfill the need in initial phase, the MEP coordinator generates an accurate 3D model by applying AutoCAD or Revit. This 3D model demonstrates total MEP services with adherence to the architectural and structural conditions of the building. Besides, this entire model acts as the base for various other important development-related plans, elevations or sections. MEP coordinator employs the 3D model for client inputs as well as generating complete walkthroughs.

3. Conflict detection and Resolution: In this phase, the 3D model set up earlier is tested for clashes among the MEP systems and the design elements. For this, they use Navisworks, a particular clash-detection software application. It detects all types of clashes like workflow clashes, geometry-related hard clashes, and clearance clashes. Besides, the MEP coordinator detects possible alternatives and deliver them to the clients.

4. Formation of Coordinated Sections and Drawings: Once a 3D model is tested for vertical and horizontal coordination, then the drawing sets are arranged to demonstrate how MEP-FP systems function in coordination as well as for more transparency, annotation and tagging process. The organizations who are liable to control MEP coordination can get elevation, section, and isometric views from the 3D model produced earlier. Besides, these can be applied for client explanations.

5. Formation of Detailed Service Drawings: In this stage, all the structural service-by-service drawings are generated and the details are included with reference to their dimensions like heights, and distances from gridlines. Site installation teams utilize these drawings and develop the base for fabrication drawings.

6. Formation of Spool, Fabrication Drawings, and Hangar Drawings: On basis of the scope of work, particular services drawings are utilized to generate fabrication drawings through some software or detailing. These drawings illustrate fabrication features for ductwork, and hence the CNC machines can directly identify them for rendering purposes.

If required, the MEP coordination unit also indicates the details of the model to create spooling data for production crews. Except for this, the firm can even plan out and then demonstrate the hangars for every design. As soon as the plan is made, the hangar specifications are provided on a list for the production units.

In MEP coordination systems, some steps may be omitted with regards to the scope of the project. Although each point is important for completing any project successfully devoid of any setbacks, additional cost, and unanticipated design amendments.

7. As-Fitted Modifications: This final step is associated with making modifications to the design model and the pictures because of some site changes from the construction designs. If the coordination work is perfect, and the installation is done according to the construction drawing directions and plans, the amendments to the as-fitted (also defined as as-installed and as-built) designs are least amount.

The role of BIM in prefabrication period

BIM is used to provide digital representation of the building process in 3D with the scope of a 4D (time) and 5D (cost) of data to minimize errors, enhance effectiveness and decision-making.

With improved perceptibility and clarity throughout a project to ensure that things remain on the schedule that’s been dedicated to and within the calculated budget being proposed, BIM tools provide substantial ROI for architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) professionals.

Besides, base-level geometry of a structure, BIM comprises of spatial relationships; mechanical, electric and plumbing (MEP) components and the quantities and cost estimates for the required building materials. If any modification is made, associated objects are updated along with it, all in a centralized model so that each team member of the project can get access of that model.

BIM produces a broad, digital picture of a project to facilitate the project stakeholders to have clear view concerning what resources are essential and when, as well as reduce the chances of over- or under-estimating the time and money the project will require.

The objective of prefab and modular methods is to lessen the time required to fabricate a structure on the jobsite, as well as integrate MEP components into the panel or module while fabrication is going on. BIM contains these components in the entire building model and makes trade-to-trade coordination better.

In prefab and modular construction, assembly requirements are altered since the piece, panel or module design is calibrated. As soon as the design gets ready, BIM can generate visual-based manuals, in place of written instructions so that the workers can get a clear idea of the new steps for fabrication.

Building in the virtual space is incorporating the new technologies like virtual and augmented reality.

Virtual reality can offer an immersive understanding of the BIM model and a supplementary resource for AEC professionals to examine the design options and find out design errors.

AR facilitates to layer BIM models with real objects in the jobsite as a reference point during the assembly process and avoids the construction errors.
