The 3D model as the central tool within the BIM process

The 3D model plays THE central role within the planning method „Building Information Modeling” (BIM).

We, at SBI, use 3D design from almost the beginning of a project. This includes the architecture in the area of layout planning as well as building services with the preparation of the first equipment layouts with the help of volume parts.

Thus, we can discuss the model with our customer at a very early stage via 3D visualization and achieve a better understanding and decision-making.

In the further planning phases, the model gains more and more geometrical details (LOD), the technical data (LOI) is added as alphanumeric attributes to the components of the 3D model.

The 3D model also forms the basis for the preparation of specifications in order to determine quantities and masses and assign them to the individual positions.
