The Leader in CAD and BIM Software Technologies
3DCADCO has established itself as one of the industry’s leading providers of CAD and BIM technologies specifically for the AECO industry. Since 1999, we’ve helped our clients complete hundreds of projects of all types and sizes in both metric and imperial units.
Our experience helps firms quickly learn and implement our BIM technology in-house. Or if you’re too busy to learn or not financially ready to purchase BIM software, we’re able to use our innovative tools on your projects as a service to assist you quickly benefit from BIM. Besides traditional visualization and drafting capabilities we also offer the following advanced BIM services.
4D/5D CONSTRUCTION SIMULATION
Adding a 4th dimension of Time and 5th dimension of Cost to our BIM models we are able to simulate the construction sequence in a computer animation linked to the schedule. A 4D simulation enhances the project teams understanding of expected deliverables, phases of construction and site logistics while the 5D helps estimate the total cost of construction based on material, labor and equipment. Using this VDC (Virtual Design and Construction) technology, we are able to create presentations and perform analyses helping streamline project delivery and maximize profits.
3DCADCO provides a variety of training and consulting options for the software we recommend including ARCHICAD, MEP Modeler, EcoDesigner, BIMx, ArchiFM and Solibri. Training can be done individually, in large or small groups, at local colleges and universities, at our office or yours and now on-line. There's many free on-line multimedia tutorials and our new Youtube channel.
Our BIM modeling capabilities extend to Civil, MEP and Structural. Working with consultants 2D or 3D files, we are able to highlight potential conflicts with our clash detection software. This greatly condenses the project timeframe and minimizes change orders. Ultimately we recommend using IPD (Integrated Project Delivery) where each sub contractor is collaborating in the BIM environment.
Using the revolutionary EcoDesigner, which was the first native BIM sustainable design software, we help ensure your projects are environmentally friendly and minimize the impact on local resources. From sun-studies and lighting analyses to performance comparisons and energy consumption, our innovative sustainable technology can benefit almost any project.
