Latest up-gradation to 3D Repo offers native Revit file support

3D Repo offers the cloud based digital platform for BIM data so that the users can availa the latest 3D models and produce real-time changes and informed decisions online. 3D Repo introduced the most updated version of its cloud-based digital construction platform with some exciting features like data validation with Smart Groups, native Revit file support, updates to SafetiBase (Health & Safety Issue Tracker), API key access, and supplementary rendering options.

With the inclusion of Smart Groups feature the users can get a simple way to authenticate the data and group model components. “Smart Groups democratizes the method of data validation, makes progress tracking simple and finally leads to more consistent data outputs for the client. Besides, it opens up the data validation method to all stakeholders despite of their knowledge of software or licensing constraints of other software.

3D Repo now contains native Revit support so that the users get the ability to upload Revit files directly to the 3D Repo platform where they will be easily controlled in an online database and applied in federations for design coordination.

It will save users significant hours of time while federating models with each design iteration. Earlier the users had to export to IFC file format prior to uploading, now it is possible to just upload files directly from Revit.

SafetiBase feature offers a collaborative way to allocate and utilize health and Safety information and project risk data within the model and it is also upgraded. Major updates comprise of a full audit trail of changes for each risk, supplementary post mitigation risk options, capacity to add and track residual risk and support for several markups.

SafetiBase adheres to the specification for ‘collaborative sharing and application of structured health and safety information with BIM’ (Publicly Available Specification PAS 1192-6).

Given below, the details of new features :-

1. New 3D modeling: With the inclusion of PolySolid, it becomes easier to draw 3D objects in the shape of polygonal walls. By applying Push and Pull tools, the users get the ability to include depth with extrusion. The new version also contains ChamferEdges for beveling as well as new face and loop options. CorelCAD provides support for helix to generate 3D models around a cylindrical shape and support for 3D primitives to be included and edited with Boolean operations.

2. Greater 2D drafting tools: CorelCAD provides extra support for CustomBlocks, a tool having similarity with AutoCAD. With this feature, the users can develop and reuse blocks. Symbols are defined with rules and constraints so that the users will be able to set them in drawings and resize, rotate when required.

3. Layer Palette: CorelCAD contains a new Layers Manager to substitute an earlier application for layers. It’s considerably simplified as a palette that can be put away, docked, and accessible directly within the UI. It also contains a new MergeLayer feature.

4. .STL file import: Import support for stereolithography (.STL) files to deal with ready-made 3D designs or insert contained 3D solid objects into a new design. Besides, get support for 3D printing or output associated with .STL export.

5. Improved selection tools: With CorelCAD 2019, it is possible to instantly click and cycle through entities in complex drawings and locate objects which are unseen under other objects. Preview and Selection Highlighting features are also included. Colored highlighting facilitates the users to distinguish selected and hovered-over elements.

6. Improved View options: New navigation features provide support to 3D mice and the users can view designs from several vantage points with RollView.

7. Improved File format support: The ODA DWG is upgraded to follow AutoCAD with full, native format support.

Details about Level of development (LOD) in BIM

Level of development (LOD) means a supposition with different definitions and executions. The level of development characterizes the content and reliability of BIM components at various phases or milestones. The “content” signifies geometric information, structured data and linked documentation.

The reliability signifies what has been utilized and to what extent the downstream users of the information can rely on the precision and quality of that content.

LOD is categorized as follow :-

LOD 100 – Concept Design

3D model of the building is formed to demonstrate the information on basic level. As a result only conceptual model can be produced in this phase. Several parameters ranging from area, height, volume, location and orientation are characterized.

LOD 200 – Schematic Design

General model where components are modeled with guess quantities, size, shape, location and orientation. Non-geometric information can also be added to the components of the model.

LOD 300 – Detailed Design

Exact modeling and shop drawing where components are characterized with certain assemblies, proper quantity, size, shape, location and orientation. Here, non-geometric information can also be added to the components of the model.

LOD 350 – Construction Document

It comprises of model detail and component which demonstrate how building components interacts with several systems as well as other building components with graphics and written definitions.

LOD 400 – Fabrication & Assembly

The components of the model are modeled according to certain assemblies with complete fabrication, assembly, and detailing information other than exact quantity, size, shape, location and orientation. Non-geometric information to the model components should also be added.

LOD 500 – As-built

The components are modeled similar to constructed assemblies for maintenance and operation. Other than actual and accurate in size, shape, location, quantity and orientation, non-geometric information is also added to the components of the model.

How to design a 3D house in AutoCAD

In this exclusive AutoCAD tutorial, you will learn how to use AutoCAD to make a complete 3D house from 2D plan.

The different types of useful AutoCAD commands are used in this tutorial which are given below :-

UN (unit command) – It manages the accuracy and display formats toward coordinates, distances and angles.

DIM (dimension style manager) – It makes several dimensions and types of dimensions with a single command. It is possible to select objects or points on objects to dimension, and then click to set the dimension line.

Rectang (create a rectangle) – It is used to form a rectangular polyline from given rectangle parameters (length, width, rotation) and type of corners (fillet, chamfer, or square).

PLINE (select poly line tool) – It is applied to produce a 2D polyline, a single object that is made of line and arc segments.

LINE (to draw line) – It is utilized to make a wide array of adjacent line segments. Every segment belongs to a line object that is editable independently.

OFFSET – It is applied to create parallel or concentric copies of lines, polylines, circles, arcs, or splines).

TRIM (modify existing objects) – It is applied to trim objects to comply with the edges of other objects.

MI (mirror objects) – It is applied to generate a mirrored copy of a selected object.

COPY (to copy any object) – It is used to copy objects to a specific distance in a specified direction.

STRETCH – It is employed to stretch objects passed by a selection window or polygon. STRETCH only moves the vertices and endpoints located inside the crossing selection.

ROTATE – It is used to rotate selected objects around a base point to an absolute angle.

MOVE – It allows to move objects to a specified distance in a specified direction. The objects are moved accurately with coordinates, grid snaps, object snaps, and other tools .
