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.

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
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?
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.

RELATED ARTICLES: How should 3D printed buildings be maintained? | Is the GCC building the right infrastructure? Successful Healthcare Architecture Needs Robust MEP Systems’ Coordination Hospitals and healthcare facilities being designed and developed today are very different in structure and nature from the ones built a few decades back. The change has been driven by advancements in medical facilities, as much as in the view of design as a tool to resolve problems. That said, one also needs to consider that the life cycle of a building is not designed for a short-term use; 50 years on the minimum side, with renovations & modifications keeping with the changing needs of the healthcare facility. In an ideal scenario, all the stakeholders of such a facility would be looking at the best value design, rather than one that just costs less or compromises on design to enhance capacity.
