SOLIDWORKS in the Construction (AEC) Industry

SOLIDWORKS is an excellent fit for the AEC (Architectural, Engineering and Construction) industry. Architects are constantly pushing the boundaries of building design and are continually creating more organic and complex shapes which test the boundaries of physics and design. Designers and Architects alike need an easy-to-use CAD package which enables the creation of complex designs with the parametric capabilities to facilitate design changes at any stage of the design process.

SOLIDWORKS comes with a complete suite of tools to develop accurate designs that can be leveraged across planning, equipment design, layout, fabrication, and construction. Also quickly create photorealistic renderings and fully-detailed fabrication drawings for structural designs, mechanical equipment designs, mechanical systems (HVAC), electrical cable layouts, and piping systems. Test and explore design alternatives using SOLIDWORKS Simulation to optimise your designs against project specifications and customer requirements.

What is BIM?

SOLIDWORKS BIM

BIM (Building Information Modeling) is simply a process whereby all digital assets related to the physical and functional characteristics of a facility, are collated and shared with all parties involved in the development, such as architects, civil engineers, construction teams and anyone else involved.

The objective of BIM is to help support decision-making from the early conceptual stages, through design and construction, lifespan and demolition.

“The biggest misunderstanding (about BIM) is that it’s about software and that you can buy it cellophane wrapped from a software vendor. It’s more about cultural change than it is about software” Paul Morrell – Governments Chief Construction Advisor

The impact on your business depends on your position and function within the construction industry. If you are developing components for use in the construction industry it’s important to ensure your CAD platform of choice supports file formats that enable BIM collaboration.
