How Twinmotion 2018 is synchronized with Revit

This Revit video provides brief demonstration on Twinmotion 2018 that will launched very soon by Abvent. The newest version will be very useful for architectural visualization via 3D immersion with some simple clicks of the mouse.

Twinmotion 2018 is supported with Unreal Engine. It is very user-friendly and powerful for architects and designers to generate images, videos, panoramas and executable files.

Twinmotion 2018 offers real-time collaboration with ArchiCAD and Autodesk Revit. Given below, some exclusive features of the software :-

It produces photorealistic visualisations of buildings as well as imports models in a standard range of 3D file formats, together with FBX, DWG and DAE.

The Users will be able to develop background environments out of a library of stock models and textures, and attribute lights.

There are various types of atmospheric properties which range from clouds, rain and snow, as well as ambient lighting on the basis of geographical location and time of day. These are modified through slider-based controls.

There also exist brush-based systems for editing topography or inserting animatiable vegetation to a scene, and a Bezier-based system for pathing animated crowds or traffic.

The software also comprises of a basic camera editor and a set of standard post-process effects.

3D Repo introduced 3D Diff to detect clashes instantly among different types of models

3D Repo, the leading solution provider in Digital Construction technology, has recently introduced a software called 3D Diff solution that recognizes clashes in construction plans by examining the 3D models which were submitted by project partners and contractors.

3D Diff is considered as the first ever web based, real-time change detection software for 3D models which are frequently utilized in Building Information Modeling (BIM).

The improved 3D Diff solution with Clash Detection automatically detects and highlights intersections, and consequently prospective conflicts, among various types of models. From the inception phase of the architect’s plans, a range of disciplines, along with structural; environmental; mechanical, electrical and plumbing, and feasibly various others, will generate their own models. Each such model comprises of a range of 3D files with elementary metadata. Because, in several cases, each discipline functions with their own silos prior to occurrence of design review on a federation, clashes like pipework cutting via a solid steel structure may simply happen.

The cloud-based 3D Clash Detection offers a quick and consistent way to compare and contrast 3D models, from various disciplines, devoid of the file format or the software applied to form them. The 3D Diff with Clash Detection can function on different types of models in real time through an encrypted web browser.

The 3D Repo solution is also useful for the users to allocate visualizations, along with focusing on clashes, with project partners and stakeholders regardless of location or time-zone. These can then be exported as BCF (Building Collaboration Format) files to be distributed with authoring tools. The 3D Repo solution identifies and visualizes perfect intersection points wherever the clashes are found.

With the use of online 3D Clash Detection in combination with 3D Diff Change Detection technology, the models of any type and from any source are compared with the original designs, and with each other, making sure the clashes are identified at the initial state.

At the backend of the 3D Diff digital solution, there is 3D Repo’s award winning cloud based BIM platform that facilitates the users to access the latest 3D models through the web, and make real time modifications and informed decisions.

Importance of AutoCAD, Revit and STAAD Pro for Civil Engineers

A civil engineers should contain adequate working knowledge in AutoCAD to make drawing smarter. Knowledge of other programs like Revit and STAAD Pro are also very crucial for other disciplines.

AutoCAD: Both AutoCAD and Civil 3D play an important role for making efficient civil engineering design. These programs facilitate you to generate quality plan sets. On the other hand, working knowledge of AutoCAD is not essential for construction engineers.

The design aggregation and documentation tools, which are in-built into AutoCAD, enhance productivity as well as simplify your design and documentation workflows and accelerate projects from design to completion whereas automate the tiresome manual drafting tasks.

AutoCAD allows to produce surfaces, solids, and offset curves dynamically and manipulate them with context-sensitive PressPull operations. 3D models are directly imported into AutoCAD from different types of applications, like SolidWorks, CATIA, Pro/ENGINEER, Rhinoceros, and NX products and services to easily generate intelligent 2D views. Point Cloud tools facilitates you to import scanned objects with up to 2 billion data points. Physical 3D prototypes of your designs are instantly formed with AutoCAD’s 3D printing capabilities.

Revit: Revit is an useful software for architects and other building professionals that can be used for architectural design and documentation. Revit facilitates the users to produce a perfect and detailed building model in quickest possible time.

Revit empowers the civil engineers to render the best performance with the creation of virtual illustration of building products. Starting from the Design Development & Coordination, 3D Modeling, Drawing Set Creation to Quantity Take-off, civil engineers can obtain the separate product specifications of the building which range from the color, tolerance, cost and other info. All these are essential to take informed decisions.

Revit provides the following advantages to the civil engineers:

a. Offer perfect, trustworthy and reasonable solutions
b. Substantiate the design of the model for constructability and performance
c. Maintenance of wood, steel and concrete structures like column, beam depths and clashes
d. Perform a detailed analysis of structural & MEP elements to render projects in risk-free environment

STAAD Pro: STAAD Pro is a handy software for structural engineers to make accurate structural analysis and design. The program supports the analysis of different types of structural elements like bridges, structural beams, floodgates, and much more. Civil engineers with a structural background are suggested to learn supporting programs like STAAD Pro.
