Added value with BIM

22.10.2019 | News
The construction sites of the future are automated and digitized. The exchange of information is logged via collaboration platforms so that - in real time - site managers, financiers, customers and suppliers can communicate seamlessly and comprehensibly with each other. The basic approach of BIM aims to map, process and record building data from design, planning, execution and use in a digital model.

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.
