Putting You In The Picture: How 3D Modelling Makes Design Much More Effective

Putting You In The Picture: How 3D Modelling Makes Design Much More Effective

You’ve got an idea of what the structure should look like in your head…

And it’s taken weeks – months even – to get to this stage.

You’ve been in meeting after meeting with various designers and engineers.

And now they’ve finally put together a design for you to review.

It’s exciting.

Problem is: when the designers come in to present their plans, all they have is a flat-plan they roll out across the conference table.

It’s hardly inspiring.

Worse: you’re not really an engineer and can’t get a feel for what the end result will look like when it’s up, let alone figure out how the infrastructure will work.

But don’t worry…

This is where Pipesco can make a real difference.

3D Modelling Lets You See Exactly What You Imagined

Here at Pipesco we believe innovation is key to helping our clients.

It’s why we’re always looking to explore new technologies that will help improve the various services we offer.

Without doubt, our adoption of 3D modelling techniques has helped us do this when it comes to design and construction.

In the past, you’ll have likely been presented with 2D designs for any building, pipe or infrastructure work you’ve commissioned.

While 2D plans serve a purpose, we have found that using 3D modelling technology at the design stage is far more effective.

First off, you’re able to see what you imagined actually take shape.

Using this technology we’re able to build out a scale model you can view as though it were the real thing.

This provides a much more effective visual representation of your project.

And for those involved in the process who aren’t as qualified when it comes to design and construction – it’s great news.

Why? Because no matter what you’re level of engineering experience, you can get a proper feel for the design. It becomes much easier for you to give constructive feedback.

But it helps on a more granular level too…

3D Modelling Saves You Time And Money

For example, 3D modelling means you can see much more clearly how various different elements of the design fit together.

This could save you a huge amount of time and money.

You see, on a 2D plan you might overlook how a piping system connects across the first and second floor of a structure.

But with a 3D model you can literally see how it will fit together and make adjustments if necessary.

As the data used in the 3D model will be accurate in relation to the manufacture itself, you can also spot areas that worked in theory but in practice need rethinking.

Crucially, it means you can work with the engineers BEFORE the manufacturing process begins, potentially saving thousands.

We’ve found using 3D modelling has not only changed the way we work here at Pipesco, it’s also changed the way our clients are able to work, hugely improving their experience.

Because of the way our 3D modelling technology works, it’s also possible to apply it to smaller elements of a project too and we can model areas in any environment.

So, if you’re looking for a more effective way of modelling your next engineering project…

Or you would like to learn more and see how our 3D modelling technology could be applied to a challenge you’re currently facing…
