BricsCAD V18.2 is launched for improved 3D modeling

BricsCAD V18.2 is launched with some new and advanced features which are included in core BricsCAD platform.

New associative center-lines and center marks will facilitate to make the drawing and modeling tasks automated. In V18.2, a new option called In-place text editing is available. Viewport boundaries can also be applied for TRIM and EXTEND. The trademark BricsCAD Quad cursor and roll-over tips are improved significantly in V18.2. Besides, it is possible to generate 2D and 3D constraints easily in BricsCAD V18.2.

In BricsCAD V18.2, there is a multi-resolution, consistent image cache to show PDF underlays. It is effective for rapid Zoom and Pan operations. It is also possible to manage how BricsCAD regenerates the underlay to satisfy your definite requirements.

With improved 3D direct modeling, the users will be able to produce rotated, swept and symmetric solids conveniently. Detected model boundaries are utilized for developing advanced shape. The 2D drawing generation performance of VIEWBASE is reformed significantly.

BricsCAD V18.2 comprises of the BricsCAD LISP Advanced Development Environment, but it is also termed as BLADE. LISP is alive in BricsCAD!

BricsCAD BIM V18.2: The powerful BricsCAD BIM auto-classifier, “BIMIFY”, comes with greater functionality in V18.2. Model elements with standard profiles are considered as structural members, and auto-tagged with their profile data. Supplimentary smarts are included to BricsCAD BIM to accelerate the formation and editing of linear solids. There is also support for Australian Standard Steel Section profiles.

Room detection becomes superior for room bounding elements. In BIM V18.2, volume sections are affixed to a Room as interior elevations. The BIM Suggest tool can employ section views to show you how your BIM suits together. Put in a component into any wall segment and it’s automatically BIM classified. In V18.2, it is also possible to split the link among a window and a wall to eliminate the window and sustain the wall opening.

New HVACPAC for AutoCAD 2018

JTB World recently launched HVACPAC, an exclusive AutoCAD app for creating design of HVAC and Piping system in 2D and 3D.

HVACPAC comprises of all In-line duct fittings and equipment, air terminals and HVAC related pipe work. HVACPAC was created as per South African standards (Which are identical to most countries) but can be modified as per your requirements).

This newest app is well suited with AutoCAD versions like AutoCAD 2012 and AutoCAD 2018 as well as all flavors/verticals derived from AutoCAD like AutoCAD Architecture (ACA), Architectural Desktop (ADT), AutoCAD Civil 3D, AutoCAD Electrical , AutoCAD Map 3D, AutoCAD Mechanical, AutoCAD MEP (AMEP, ABS), AutoCAD P&ID, AutoCAD Plant 3D.

It also contains various 2D and 3D tools for producing overhead schematic maps together with side-on views for HVAC control rooms and other facilities for managing and servicing HVAC hardware.

HVACPAC is mostly effective for draughtsmen and engineers.

It allows for superior quality measurement of ducts, pipes and components in a matter of seconds. It also generate tables of elements instantly and automatically.

To get more information about the app, go through the following link jtbworld.com

How to use revit for finding out the pipe sloping in isometric drawing

This revit video tutorial is presented to teach you how to view isometric drawing of piping and determine the measurement map of pipe as well as identify the material symbol of pipe isometric drawing.

You will also learn how to determine the sloping of pipe in isometric drawing, types of valves in piping, types of vales in piping joints, types of pipe fittings materials.

Slope Editor in Revit can be used to assign a slope to whole system or to particular parts of a system. In case of using large slope values, it becomes easier to draw the piping at the preferred angle in a section view or an elevation view.

Watch the following video tutorial to learn the detail process.

Types of Clash detection and their importances

Clash detection is a popular term among AEC firms. It is 3D graphic that permits for the inherent exposure of inconsistencies in early phase of the design. Detecting inconsistencies is very important, as these can provide serious effect on the construction progression, result in delays, design modifications, materials costs and budget overruns.

The constructability issues are solved in earlier stage of construction and it saves huge amount of money, time which lead to creating a superior building.

Clash detection is a part and parcel of the BIM modeling system. In BIM modeling process, there is not a single model but various models are incorporated into a combined master model. Each discipline ranging from structural engineering, MEP engineering, environmental engineering, etc makes a model independently on the basis of the architect’s original model. It is the starting point for all the other disciplines. Once each of the disciplines completes their work, the next stage in BIM modeling is clash detection.

Therefore, clear conception on clash and how to apply clash detection factors in BIM software is vital for engineers, architects, owners and contractors. It is found that each recognized clash saves $17,000 approximately on a project.

Clash detection is also considered to be an effective teaching tool that facilitates the students to find out prospective mistakes devoid of spending wasteful time searching through 2D drawings.

Generally there are three types of clashes:

  • Hard clash
  • Soft Clash/Clearance Clash
  • 4D/Workflow Clash

Hard Clash: A hard clash occurs when two objects take up the identical space. For example, a beam is going through where a plumbing run is designed. As information is implanted in the BIM modeling objects, hard clash provides geometry based detection as well as semantic and rule-based detection algorithms. Geometry based clash detection will restore a clash for every recessed ceiling light, or a pipe going through a wall. But if clash detection rules are created on the basis of embedded object data, it can reduce these types of general errors. The level of detail and selection sets plays an important role in BIM modeling for the accurateness and effectiveness of clash detection by performing clash detection amid definite subsets of a model.

Soft Clash: Soft clashes denote objects that require positive spatial/geometric tolerances, spaces and buffers inside their buffer zone for access, insulation, maintenance or safety. Soft clashes create new possibilities where BIM modeling clash detection brings new potential to the method. Custom “soft clash” detection can be applied for testing components for building code adherence.

4D/Workflow clash: 4D/Workflow clash detection can determine scheduling clashes for work crews, equipment/materials fabrication & delivery clashes and other project timeline issues through a BIM modeling project.
