3D Coordination and Clash Detection
A clash occurs when elements of different models occupy the same space. A clash may be geometric (for example, pipes passing through walls), schedule based (when different aspects of work that are supposed to be sequential are scheduled to occur together or in reverse), or changes/updates not made to drawings.
There is… but it is very tedious. It involves overlaying of drawing to see if there are any conflicts. With BIM though, this process is vastly improved as BIM brings automation to clash detection.
Clash detection helps in effective identification, inspection and reporting of interferences in a project model. It is used for checking completed/ongoing work and reduces the risk of human error during model inspections. Clash detection is necessary because several models (structural, MEP, etc) are integrated into one main BIM model. With clash detection, mistakes which normally would have been discovered on the site (with high cost and schedule implications when corrected at that stage) can now be seen in the office even before anyone sets foot on the site. BIM even makes clash detection possible for objects within objects (a steel rod completely immersed inside a concrete wall).
The main aim of BIMIOS is nothing but to provide clash detection service that ensures identification, inspection and reporting of interference clash in a BIM project model. Our clash detection services allow you reducing the amount of change orders during construction to minimize the possible risk of human error during model inspections.
