BIM Versus AutoCAD(D) – What’s the Difference?

While today we live in an era of technological advancement, there were times that the design and drafting need to be hand-drawn throughout the project life cycle. It was a tedious task but had no other way around. But with today’s software catering to the needs of the professionals, AutoCAD and BIM are few of the most used and widely popular amongst the construction and design industry professionals.

So what is CAD(D) exactly?

CAD stands for computer-aided design. You can also add an extra D for drafting as well. It is used for design development and optimizing your work. It enables the professionals to design on their computer screen and save it for editing in the future. It is used for preliminary designing, layout, detailing work and also calculations. You can also make a 3D representation of the object in CAD(D).

Professionals whom it caters to –

1. Engineers

2.Architects

3.Designers

With CAD in the background, the professionals are freaking out over BIM and the easy workflow that it offers.

So, what is the hype over BIM?

Well, the hype is real and for some real reasons! Unlike CAD being software, BIM is a process through which generating drawings are much easier and faster. Here is an illustration explaining the many facets of BIM 

It facilitates all the important aspects of designing in the form of digital representation. Not just geometrical, it covers everything from a spatial relationship, light analysis, geographical form, etc.

Professionals whom it caters to –

1.Engineers

2.Architects

3.Designers

4.Constructors

5.Business Owners

Still, confused?

CAD is the software dedicated in design and drafting works, whereas BIM is a process, a methodology by which professionals can work collaboratively to design and build a building, establishing the same details use and computer model. This allows for easier communication and breaks the barriers of time and distance. It does so by acting as a common resource working across multiple disciplines of designing and drafting.

Since both differ in usages, it completely depends on the professionals as to what kind of outcomes they are expecting.

As far as CAD is concerned it is typically used for the industrial design of mechanical and electrical. Whereas, BIM is extensively used in the design and construction industry.

Why you should think of India as your CAD outsourcing destination?

India is one of the most searched out destinations for (Computer-Aided Design) CAD outsourcing, as India has a promising workforce that provides quality of work with the quickest turnaround time. One of the major advantages of outsourcing your CAD services to India is the labor charges as it is cheaper than many other countries.

Around 1.5 million engineers are graduated every year from the top-notch universities in India. Besides this, the Indian Government takes a keen interest in promoting a safe and secure environment for the outsourcing businesses. With millions of engineering graduates passing out of universities and colleges every year, availability of quality talent pool is never a problem in India.

Here are 5 reason why you should outsource to India-

  1. Talent Pool

Millions of students are coming out as engineering graduates. So, clearly there is no dearth of skilled workforce. Besides, according to United Nations report, India has the highest number of youths who falls under the category of working professionals. According to the report, India accounts for 356 million people falling under the age group of 10-24. This is simply WOW! Just wonder as to what you can lose, if you haven’t thought of India as your outsourcing partner. Since, this number corresponds to the working class, there is a lot of employment facility available.

Also, India is amongst the top major English-speaking countries which is the second country after the USA to speak English as their official language. Currently there are 125 million English-speaking people out of which 226,449 uses English as their first language and rest uses it as their second language. Moreover, as of 2018 India’s literacy rate is 74.04% according to UNESCO. Isn’t it the best time partnering with India?

  1. Cost Efficiency

Hiring in-house members for non-creative or non-core business activities which can be outsourced, can be a tedious affair! The infrastructure, administration cost, training cost or any other engagement cost for the work force is immense and maintaining it is another trouble. Also, it makes sense to outsource your work where you can get it done in relatively lesser cost. Though cheaper price does not guarantee you with good quality work always, you should consider an outsourcing partner that value your money and gives you quality output. If you look at the conversion rates of ($) dollar to INR and quality of work you get, one can clearly make a judgement, India is the best outsourcing destination.

The Rise Of Photogrammetry From Engineering To Film-Making

Photogammetry

Doctor Strange, The Marvel film which set the stage on fire with its action pieces. The movie involved twisted and bent buildings. One of the most alluring movies in the history of Hollywood as it used the trending technology, photogrammetry. The producer, Marvel Studios kept the movie high-tech.

The sole purpose of introducing the technology in the movie was to give a new level of entertainment to his viewers. The casting team faced various challenges. One such challenge was the designing of the city containing only bent buildings.

Here came the role of photogrammetry, let’s read more on it;

There were many scenes which involved the use of photogrammetry. One such was that of a basketball court with players who occupied the similar space as that of a building. So, what you had was a basketball court sticking out of a building on its side and having the two move in opposite directions. As soon as the basketball court gets to the bounds of the building it would just simply disappear somewhere.

Photogammetry_2

It was this way the entire city was build, you just read a very small part of it.”

Photogrammetry is being used for almost 100 years now. Later during world war II, to make invasion maps, discover the V2 rocket program, and later by NASA to make topographical maps of the moon for the Apollo missions.

Engineers use this technology to design 3D objects. This method captures multiple images with the help of camera kept at a distance. After adjusting the camera lens and the object, pictures are clicked and measurements are noted.

No doubt, the world is becoming techie and engineers are building solutions which create 3D designs of objects like, roads, canals, houses or big residential societies.

Many production houses, engineering outsourcing companies etc. are also using photogrammetry. It eases out the process of photographic surveying.

Benefits of Photogrammetry that Lure Techies

  • First and foremost, its reduced cost
  • Creation of 3D printable objects
  • Space Scanning while building objects
  • In Movies

Such software is built by engineers and used by many outsourcing companies, and firms. Indovance is a leading outsourcing partner who also scales up with techie era.

With technology at the highest peak, many companies are using this software required for scanning and photographic surveying. Indovance, headed by its employees has delivered various CAD, CAM, and premedia projects to its international clients successfully. We are delivering our services in a world awash of super-high-leveled technology.

Engineering Design Analysis: Process Involved

design-analysis

Engineering design process includes the analysis and fulfillment of all the requirements set by the clients or customers. The engineers successively perform all the iterations, thus rendering a final project with inbuilt specifications and functions.

The first step is to:

Identify the needs of any project, analyzing the needs is called as “need finding”

Which company doesn’t want an outsourcing firm which will mind map the ideas to start off the project? Are you searching for a result driven outsourcing network? Then you are on the right page. Engineers at Indovance, assemble bugs in their design notebook, and they mind map the ideas. Mind mapping is a collection of multiple ideas regarding any ongoing project onto a paper, it is a mixture of meaningful thoughts which helps engineers in filtering out the core data.

We carry out the design analysis in such a way, that, the overall scientific and engineering process is completely done and submitted to the clients.

The steps involved in mechanical design process are,

  • Preparing a plan which will fulfill all the entities
  • Bench-marking
  • Generating engineering specifications
  • Exhibiting the conceptual approach
  • Developing prototype
  • Evaluation of product
  • Testing and redesigning if required

Many organizations contend in finalizing their CAD outsourcing company which should be worthy of their dollars and pounds, and definitely, they should be, after all, they are investing much.

The Approach

Mechanical theme requires an idea, which is then passed for the CAD work, i.e. Computer aided design. After all this, the project involves the simulation and analysis part, prototypes, and the final step is, testing.

In this way, Indovance is providing value to such projects at an efficient cost, proving themselves as the best outsourcing firm. We make sure to deliver best answers to your questions: “How to design and how will the project look with fully driven functions”

Palm Islands: Did You Know Why They Were Built? And How Difficult It Was?

Palm Trees

It was really tough for us to determine one civil engineering project that was the toughest, and that which proved to be a successful project. And not just successful project, it was one of the most celebrated projects in the history of the civil industry. Well, who could imagine developing a project in the middle of the ocean? Palm Islands does provide an amazing view, but was it that easy to develop such a beautiful island? Of course not! Let us learn about the difficulties that this project had to face, and why was it built in the first place. The name has been given such because it looks like a palm tree from an aerial view.

We have heard about feasibility studies that are required to be done whenever any project has to be started. Similar feasibility studies were conducted for Palm Islands, but any idea how many? More than 100 studies! This speaks volumes of the complexity and the size of the project. But why was this project ever built? According to some sources, Dubai would have depleted all of its oil deposits in few years to come, and they needed some solid source of income. Therefore, it was decided that tourism can keep the economy in good shape.

Looks like quite a plan!

But, can Dubai host so many tourists? Dubai is small in area, it is just twice as big as London. It was practically impossible to add more tourists without the necessary infrastructure. The solution was to extend the coastline and build an artificial island. The Island is built with sand and gravels to make it look more natural. It is said around 94 million cubic meters of sand was used. Being a desert, Dubai has a lot of sand, but that is different from what was required at the sea surface. And 5.5 million cubic meters of rock was also required. It is said that this amount of rock can be used to construct a small wall circling the whole world.

Palm Islands

In Holland, Dutch engineers have increased their land by around 35%. And these engineers were specially called in Dubai to conduct a study and tell whether the project was possible or not. So many factors were considered like the strength of the storm, high tides, the shallowness of the ocean, etc. before starting the actual work. Some best engineers across the world were put together to create this island. You will be surprised to know that private satellite was used to check if the shape of the island is same as it was designed. The satellite sent co-ordinates, and things went as they were supposed to be. This is really amazing, isn’t it?

More than a 120,000 people were involved every day, and some best barges, dumpers, cranes were used. Palm Islands saw some best men and machines put together at work. The design was slightly modified because the outer water couldn’t come in. Now, this was another problem because the inside water of the island started growing stale. Hence, the outer rings were broken so that water could come in, and the inside water remained fresh.

And then they build the world’s largest man-made island: Palm Islands. This island stations many luxury resorts that can let you go bananas. There are houses, shopping malls, and internal road network. It’s a beautiful place.

Is Burj Khalifa More Than Just ‘The Tallest Building?’

burjkhalifa_1400x800_nickmerrickhb_02jpg

We all know that Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world. And we appreciate this architectural marvel. Burj Khalifa is certainly the big brother of all other architectural structures that are standing, and none seems to match its height. With this article, we would like to bring your attention to some of the lesser known facts about Burj Khalifa.

 

Burj Khalifa is around 829.8 meters tall. Well, quite overwhelming structure it is, isn’t it? It is almost thrice as tall as Eiffel Tower of France. Wow! So, this building can take you really high. Burj Khalifa apparently holds some other records as well. Some of these records are quite obvious. It has the most number of stories in the world. And it also has the elevator that runs the longest distance in this world. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to you.

2000px-BurjKhalifaHeight.svg

 

This graph will help you compare well-known architectural structures with Burj Khalifa (click on the graph for a better view).

 

You know how much concrete has gone into making this structure? The combined weight of one million elephants would be equal to the weight of the concrete used. 110,000 tons of concrete and 55,000 of steel rebar went into making of the building. And if all the aluminum of Burj Khalifa was taken out, five A380 aircraft could be built out of the metal. The building has more 160 floors. Gee! And most of us wouldn’t want to climb the stairs. So, we take the elevator. And these elevators also have got some crazy speed, they move at around 10 meters per second. So, it would take less than 90 seconds to reach atop the building. And not one or two, there are 57 of these elevators.

 

 

You can see the tip of this enormous structure even from 95 kilometers distance away. Burj Khalifa is an architectural brilliance. And to make this brilliance, many people have contributed. As a matter of fact, more than 12,000 workers were involved at the peak of construction. A lot of man-hours must have gone into the building. Yes, 22 million man-hours. This is a lot of work!

 

The tower is designed by the same architects (Skidmore, Owings and Merrill) who designed Willis Tower and the new One World Trade Center. It took six years to complete the construction of the building. But, did you know that Burj Khalifa was supposed to be a residential building and much shorter than what it is now. Well, we can say that things happen for a reason. It is also said that the designs of the building are inspired by Islamic architecture. This explains the structure being similar to spiral minaret that spirals, and grows slim as it goes up.

 

 

The cladding system of the Burj Khalifa is also spellbound. The cladding system is designed in accordance to the extreme climate of Dubai. More than 26,000 glass panels are used for the exterior cladding. And this cladding was accomplished by over 300 experts from China. The structure also has two observation decks that offer a breathtaking view of the city and the sky.

CAD: Peeking into Past and Future

time-machine

CAD (Computer-Aided Design) is all about designing 2D or 3D models of various physical objects that we see around us. These physical objects could be just anything, as simple as a box, or can be a complicated machine. You may not realize, but there will be a lot of structures, machines, and appliances that you see every day that are made with the help of CAD.

So, how did things work before CAD? It was little complicated, or I would say bit tedious. Everything was on paper; all the sketching was in 2D. And a prototype was developed many times. The prototype had to undergo all the tests and validations before it was finalized. Ah, god bless those designers and engineers. But, such practices aren’t any more prevalent, thanks to CAD system. And not just us, there are many people who are thanking the CAD system. This is because CAD has allowed prototyping so fast and less complicated. And testing and analyzing of the prototype can be done simultaneously. This process can be done with various conditions and simulations. Well, this is amazing.

Plethora of new designs can be created using CAD. But, do you know that CAD can help in optimization of older and existing designs as well? Not just optimization, you can even enhance the performance. When companies started realizing the importance of CAD, it was like a boom. What did they exactly realize? They understood that a prototype can be developed for any object and all the conditions can be tested. So, they could check if there was any problem that was about to occur with the model. And they would make the changes accordingly. This would save a lot of money as compared to earlier scenario. The companies had found their Holy Grail.

CAD

Let us go backward and see how CAD system developed. CAD started with cave paintings. No, of course not. Sometime around 1950, the first ever CAD system made its entry into the industry. It was originally developed for U.S Air Force, and this was graphic air defense system. In the 1960s, as the technology got more advanced, 2D geometry and calculations could be performed with CAD. This is exactly when CAD became an important instrument for drafting applications.

In the 1980s, CAD was introduced on the personal computers, meaning it had a wider reach. This was a breakthrough in itself. A decade later, the application of CAD system was introduced in other industries as well. Until now, it was engineering that made use of the CAD system. But, Architecture started to make use of CAD systems, and it was a remarkable change in the architecture industry. And this is how we have reached here. It has been a great journey.

This was past, and we are also curious about the future, aren’t we? We have heard about virtual reality. And yes, there are high chances of virtual reality and CAD getting integrated. If both technologies are integrated, it is going to be a major achievement for the industry. CAD is a highly powerful weapon. If CAD could integrate virtual reality and artificial intelligence together, CAD will be one of the most sought-after technologies. And it will be open to many other arenas as well. The level of sophistication and receptiveness of the CAD will be enhanced.
