Here at Steel Fabrication Services, advanced 3D technology revolutionises the way we tackle projects for our clients. From creating full-scale templates for complex layouts with absolute ease, to developing life-like sketches of project plans, construction parts and isometric details, 3D modelling allows us to visualise, execute and update our team and clients, throughout each step of the steel fabrication process.
In this article, we’ll be taking a look at how 3D modelling is utilised by our skilled team of steel fabricators, from the inception to the conclusion of our projects.
3D modelling has allowed us to further enhance the speed, precision, flexibility, quality and design of our client projects. Here’s how.
2D drawings are a thing of the past. Whether we’re erecting steel beams at a construction site for a commercial building, manufacturing a steel staircase for a residential property, or performing a range of steel surface treatments, we can create highly-detailed, collaborative and adjustable visualisations of the project at hand, with speed and precision, thanks to 3D technology.
No matter the project, we can implement 3D modelling to interpret, recreate and enhance structural plans and designs, using existing engineering drawings, or sketches of architectural ideas proposed by clients.
Our advanced models provide a 360-degree overview, effectively showcasing all of the steel components that would be required to complete the project, and how they would appear from every angle. Additionally, they can provide an in-depth overview of the purpose and meaning behind each material and component, thus eliminating confusion and misinterpretation.
For highly-complex architectural layouts in particular, 3D models can provide full-scale and customisable overviews of isometric details; highlighting complex connections and making it easier to identify potential bottlenecks early on.
In conclusion, our steel drafters and detailers now use 3D drawings for all our fabrication projects across the board – from shop drawings, to erection plans, to full-scale templates of highly-complex layouts. Not only does this make visualisation and customisation much simpler, but also allows us to identify and solve any potential issues that may occur. Overall, here are some of the ways that 3D isometric drawings benefit our team and clients:
- Faster and more cost-effective project execution.
- Simplified customisation and adjustment processes.
- Avoiding on-site erection issues through early identification of bottlenecks.
- Greater ability for collaboration across stakeholders.
- Precision, speed and enhancement of plans and designs.
