2D CAD to 3D BIM Conversion for AEC Industry
A majority of our satisfied clients are now seeking support for their first BIM transition. And the reason is simple – they are moving on to better options with 2D CAD to 3D BIM conversion.
Our team of experts put in all the effort to make our client’s transition through this phase a success. We do get a lot of 2D CAD to 3D BIM conversion requests for buildings that have already been constructed and are operational. This means that there is a dire need to understand the current state of the building with regards to maintenance, new extraneous features (if any) and other changes.
For buildings that are under 5 years of age, we begin the conversion process from the as-built CAD files and documentation. The present-day investigations are nominal, and serve the purpose of checking for any major factors that have the potential to change the dynamics of the building model. In short, the rule of thumb is, the older the building, the lesser the relevance of ‘as-builts’, thus more dependence on the site.
Many of our clients also utilize our 2D CAD to 3D conversion services to create a BIM model once the Schematic Design (SD) has been finalized. Hence, when the client/drawing studio is busy taking permits from the authorities and facilitates, bidding process for contractors, we work closely with the Design Team to prepare a BIM model from the CAD files of the SD stage. This is an intense procedure that requires a significant amount of time, and works best when handled with undivided attention of key team members working dedicatedly towards the project, adhering to a strict time schedule. And The AEC Associates are up for the task.
