S I T (side_chair - sled base) >> by: Andreu World ""Lightness, suppleness, synthesis, essence and comfort... these are some of the features that are combined in the multifaceted SIT seating program, capable of providing convincing answers in any contemporary installation, with an elegant but neutral appeal. It is made using a metal tube and rod frame, in painted and matte chrome finishes. The seat and back come in colored polypropylene, upholstered in any of the Andreu World catalog fabrics. The total functionality of this model is reinforced by its variety of options: Row and numbering systems, stacking and transport cart and writing arm. Island & Holiday ~ Living

Design HVAC Duct Systems to Improve Indoor Air Quality, Don’t Size It Since decades, MEP and HVAC engineers have been “designing” the duct systems; however you dig a bit dipper to realize that they are actually not designing the HVAC duct systems. They are sizing the ducts according to some set guidelines. These guidelines vary for every engineering firm, and mostly the ducts are sized to be round by a preset friction rate decided by the engineering firm. Then incase if the spiral duct is not found to be a perfect fit, it is converted to rectangular, which eventually makes it a highly non efficient system. If this was not all, the entire ductwork system is “sized” using the duct calculator.

Siteworks for Revit Toposurface Editing, Preliminary Site Grading, and Streets Layout - Eagle Point Software Home > Products > Siteworks for Revit Siteworks™ for Revit® enables architects, designers and planners to shape the terrain for their building sites using grading tools to model pads, parking lots, streets, sidewalks and retaining walls – all within the Revit environment. Siteworks is intended to help these professionals convey preliminary design intent about the building site within the Revit model to help facilitate their collaboration with civil engineers. And because Siteworks runs inside of Revit and uses native families, components and toposurfaces, designs become part of the overall Building Information Model and help with visualizing your conceptual building plans. Key Benefits Siteworks for Revit provides architecture firms tremendous time savings in the preliminary design phase by:

Get Your Retail Store Design Approved - 3d Modeling And Rendering Can Help As an interior designer, you might design the best retail interiors for your client. But; How will you communicate these designs to the client and make them understand your concepts and the answer is - via 3D modeling and rendering - that is replete with detailed 3D Model for Retail Wall Design, lighting fixtures, furniture, furniture placement etc. The 3D modeler develops floor plans, lighting, rows of stacks and shelves and 3D Furniture Models from Rough Sketches. Each and every detail of a retail outlet’s interior is modeled and rendered. Apart from using these rendered images, designers also use walkthroughs for client presentations and project approvals. 3D Floor Plan Design

ADAPTIVE SPIRAL STAIRS I was looking through Zach Kron's parametric patterns series, which is still available on his Buildz website, and well worth a look if you missed it. The INCREMENT SPIRAL caught my eye and I started wondering "how would I convert this into a fully parametric spiral stair" I took the family that Zach created: just a spiral line, with parameters for height, radius, rotation angle. (You can vary the top and bottom radius separately to make a cone, but I just wanted a cylinder.) The goal was to make a spiral surface, divide it, then populate it with curtain panel families that emulate stair treads. For Outsourcing CAD Design services; Building Construction Companies Should get Influenced by Business Reasons Competing in today’s global economy is not at all easy for architects, contractors, building and industrial product manufacturers. Significant global competition along with additional pressure from new entrants and innovative start-ups make it all the more difficult for them to survive and thrive. To keep pace with these ever increasing challenges, organizations or companies have shifted their focus from market factors such as time-to-market or cost, to product centric strategies. They have high hopes and rely heavily on design tools, especially AutoCAD and Revit, to quickly bring innovative, high quality and high performing products to the market. But here as well they are supposed to take care of some of those entry barriers to the road to success; enlisted are some of them: So what should you, as a company, do if you find your CAD tool is holding you back?

DesignReform Have you ever needed to schedule an item of data that Revit would not let you? This is a common hurdle for many and now there's a free tool that you can use to get around this. Common uses... We are all aware that Revit can export families to a library, but the control that you get is less than sufficient for large models. This exporter will organize your families into subdirectories... BIM & Earthquake Engineering aid Structural Engineers to Design & Build Strong Structures BIM & Earthquake Engineering; Enabling Structural Engineers to Design & Build Strong Structures Sep 21, 2016 -- Earthquake engineering has become an important aspect of structural engineering, especially after the recent seismic incidents that took place in Chile, Mexico or New Zealand. These events shook the engineers from within and they are now expected to deliver stronger structure that can withstand such hazards. With latest tools and technology and of course BIM analysis methods, it will now be easier for engineers to design or build more earthquake resistant buildings. So what is seismic analysis and how can BIM analysis aid engineers for it? Calculating the response of a building structure during earthquake is what seismic analysis method is all about.

3D visualization: The Importance in Manufacturing and Construction Industries The use of advanced engineering methods and technologies is on a rise, and this is further enabling advanced 3D visualization technologies to grow, and give customers a feeling of customization and personalization. This is more prominent in aerospace industry where 3D visualization had enabled the benefit of making their customers better understand their product and engage more with what they are expecting to buy. It provides a personalized marketing experience using attractive and dynamic content that specifically addresses the customer needs. Apart from aerospace, the automotive industry is also one of the fields that utilized the benefits of 3D visualization. People looking to buy a car are often interested to know how the vehicle will look before making the purchase. However, the industry faces a fierce competition and requires figuring out ways to cut down costs.
