In the last year I have dealt in my posts intensively with the topic BIM. On 12/16/2015 has fallen on the BMVI Congress in Berlin in Germany, the official BIM-opener. Now there is no stopping them. I’ll go with the other events constructively with one or another critical contribution.
How CAFM will develop?
The theme CAFM I lost a little bit out of focus. Now, it is to ask at the time there wondering how the developers, investors and building users want to respond in the future to the BIM data. The third dimension and the advantage of the third dimension will come, although so far only a few have wanted this data. The range of BIM data will increase and the demand for it. How are the CAFM software manufacturers respond?
How does 3D printing or 3D production will develop?
3D printing has arrived in some areas of the manufacturing industry. In China at a trade show, a 3D printer in 2014 has already been presented with a space of 12 x 12 x 12 m. The prerequisite for 3D printing are constructed three-dimensional models. These models are emerging as part of a BIM process. If the desire arises to print buildings or parts thereof, the hardware manufacturers will also ensure that appropriate products are developed.
How AR will develop?
The recent Augmented Reality applications were used in the focus on the presentation of additional information. There are some examples in which a smart phone, a tablet or Google Glass to be used. One or two of you may have indeed a motor vehicle with a head-up display. Then you get a variety of information is displayed directly on the windshield. In the field of technology, for example in the maintenance and servicing, there are already applications. But to combine the reality and the additional three-dimensional virtual information together, the software must be able to recognize the real estate and also to interpret it. Especially in these area the large software companies currently developing new solutions. However, a prerequisite for a variety of applications of AR is a consistent three-dimensional structure. With the use of BIM good conditions for the use of AR to be created.
The launch of BIM has fallen. CAFM, 3D printing and AR will find their place in the BIM process. I’ll report it.
