Upcoming Trends: 3D and BIM Vertical

A lot of changes in 3D landscape have started to take place recently. This was actually predicted by the business analysts and 3D pundits in 2014 and looks like their words are apt because the tech circuits had concluded that more changes will occur in the upcoming months.


If any new trend occur in the Cloud Architecture or in Building Information Modeling (BIM), it would surely effect 3D because we noticed an important thing that 3D is now inherently associated with BIM and Cloud Computing. The new relevant trends in 3D are discussed here.


John Smith who is a enthusiastic freelancer and an avid blogger, has done a lot of work on architectural designs, 3D Floorplans and different model and style has written on this topic on business2community.com. We have made an excerpt. Smith’s is at present working with iCreate 3D.


Cost effective 3D laser scan


3D laser scanning not only scan a physical space, it makes the field-accurate information, which help the building information modeling (BIM) procedure. BIM depends on semantics, it requires correct information for more comprehensive 3D modeling, 3D laser scanning precisely helps with it. It provides BIM with the information. That’s why it is more within your means.

A sizable portion of industry thinks that 3D, BIM and Cloud are all connected with each other. 3D laser scanning first records a structure’s appearance and shape and then transforms all those information into cloud facilitating data points so they can be imported and produce a BIM model.


So right now the cost of a 3D laser scanner is $100K. Obviously its costly but once it reaches the usual market in the real estate industry, their cost will automatically slump down. Other than being less costly, 3D laser scanning may force realtors to think about domains. So the affordability of laser 3D scanners is multi-dimensional.


Cloud-computing data


Now a days the cloud computing is using for data management. It is the most upcoming trend of technologies across the globe. There is lot of advantages within it. Cloud hosting and internet can jointly solve a lot of problem related to data storage, which helps small and medium businesses. It is acute and cost effective. Server is a basic need of any business houses as influx of data or information is transferred within the organization or with the outside clients. Data always needs a space to store within high security environment. Cloud server hosting is such a data centre solution, which restore data. Most of the company hire outside vendor to do this. Cloud service provider (CSP) looks after the security of the data storage and installs anti-virus and firewalls.


Whenever data is restored in the hard drive of a computer, a lot of memory is utilized thus a lot of storage is being used. So if data is stored as Cloud and if there’s an appropriate 3D model to assist the designers and architects start to interact and research with 3D models and their understanding of the designs and features, the work would be easy.


Cloud platforms are a lot supportive because they here the data is being used in a different number of ways. Earlier it was stated how Cloud generated 3D models are used for architects and designers. The models are created on raw data. Other than these characteristics, Cloud platforms helps in storing and managing project data. So a new technique is found which will make the work more engaging.


Also, the Cloud based tools put together the data with a web-page that is HTTPS enabled. All significant characteristic and operations could be done on the site and all other team members can view the result via sharing through the web. Normally cloud-driven platforms for data management include file-sharing system, hardware controller and web operating system.


Team work


A vital feature of 3D modeling is removing the costly stages of collaboration. These stages are entirely, long-distance and very much time-taking. It has been found that a single mode of partnership is more effectual and efficient in conquering this negativity.

So if we take on a unique mode of collaboration is for 3D modeling, then that’d amount to elimination of duplication, quick response to changes and upgrades, etc. The adoption may not be so say because all members of the team may take time to get familiar with something pretty new.


A third party consultant can help them getting user friendly with the new tool. He can train the whole team so they could overcome their problems and help out with all the 3D models that they are working in, from electronic wiring to facility maintenance, contributing something useful.


Now if the teams get together with each other and consult with them, help each other, they might overcome the BIM challenges, then 3D modeling would become a lot systematic, less time consuming and less expensive and much more useful.

There are a lot of other features, which are equally important as the ones, discussed in this article. But the ones we’ve selected are relatively easier to implement and for that.
