BIM is also a trend-setting method for Doka. Doka has therefore been working intensively for a number of years on the question of how BIM applications can be used to make formwork solutions even more precisely tailored to the construction process, thus making a major contribution to the success of a construction project. Doka uses Autodesk Revit and Trimble Tekla Structures software for formwork planning, as these are very often used to create BIM-compatible building models.
Complex project solved with Tekla software
Our colleagues from the Middle East are working on a project with inclined and twisted walls. To ensure that the Top 50 large-area formwork works perfectly, they combined the elements with a Swivel joint plate. Due to the large number of degrees of freedom of the Swivel joint plate, it is very time-consuming and difficult to find the correct alignment and angles. To accomplish this difficult task, we used Rhino and Grasshopper to create a script with a user-friendly interface and the tekla-live link, to speeds up the process significantly and avoids manual placement errors.
