Virtual Reality.

The cablex virtual reality solution uses a BIM collaboration platform, which enables effective cooperation between different planning teams directly within the current 3D model.

The solution is based on the BIM data structure and is completely integrated into the BIM data workflow. The solution is also compatible with all major CAD programs and the IFC data format.

Here the goal is to standardise the planning process in every service phase, among all participants, in an efficient and structured way. This collaboration process is illustrated by the VR platform as follows:

MERGE.

MERGE.

Using CAD data (from Revit, ArchiCAD, ALLPLAN, etc.), the 3D models and associated attribute information are transferred to the platform. This is based on the IFC format, with CAD software plug-ins also being rolled out in the near future. The transferred models are automatically merged into a single model and classified according to individual trades.  

COORDINATION AND CONSTRUCTION PLANNING.

COORDINATION AND CONSTRUCTION PLANNING.

Everyone involved in construction planning can be invited to the merged model for live coordination, design review and construction planning meetings, regardless of where they are. They can take part either with a PC or directly within the virtual reality (VR) platform, using VR goggles. Participants are present in the same 3D data model, can retrieve any information they need and can communicate through a voice interface.  

Issue Management.

Issue Management.

Joint interaction in the model can help identify errors, collisions and problems easily and automatically. These errors can be flagged directly within the model during the meeting and assigned to those responsible. Issues are created in the software solution BIM collaboration format (BCF), which is directly linked to components from the IFC model. After the meeting, the new BCF issues are synchronised with the planning data from the relevant CAD systems of all planning parties.  

Our partner for development of virtual reality solutions is ALLVR GmbH in Berlin.
