3D INFORMATION MODELING

     Three-dimensional visualization has become a more widely used and accepted method for providing information to different teams working on a project. It can equally be a great benefit during the bidding and construction stages of a project, since it can provide the user with a lot more information than a standard, two-dimensional drawing. As the complexity of projects grow, so does the possibility of miscommunications among teams, which in turn can lead to delays and unnecessary costs.   

 

VLS Engineering, LLC. has successfully used three-dimensional drawings on large and small projects alike for a wide range of applications. Your project can benefit from three-dimensional visualization as a tool to eliminate clashes between different structural components, plan out erection schemes in areas where headroom and space in general represent a luxury, and clarify construction methods to field personnel by utilizing it in work plans. Additionally, three-dimensional visualizations can also be a powerful tool to successfully show the owner and the general public the concept of the project in the form of renderings or animation.    

THE MANY OPTIONS OF 3D VISUALIZATION

3D VISUALIZATION

CLEAR PRESENTATION

Three-dimensional visualization provides the end user with a complete virtual scene of structural elements or the entire project. Imagine the benefits a three-dimensional model can be to your estimating team, managers, field engineers and construction employees. 

 

We can do just that, take your two-dimensional contract drawings and transform them into a three-dimensional reality. The three-dimensional reality can be used to check estimating quantities, initial construction planning, equipment and material logistics. The same three-dimensional models can be reused during the construction phase of the project, work plan activities, safety, incorporating revisions, clash management and for so many other activities.

3D PICK PLANS

CRITICAL ENGINEERING

Pick plans represent one of the more complicated work activities to plan and execute on any project. There are multiple pieces of information that needs to be accounted for in order for a pick plan to become successful. 

Our approach to pick plans is to integrate the survey data from your job site in order to create a highly accurate three-dimensional model of the terrain. Size and type of equipment, rigging, headroom, existing structures and other type of obstacles can be virtually modeled and then tested for success. Any type of clash can be eliminated before it becomes a costly problem.

3D WORK PLANS

THE FUTURE OF WORKPLANS

Accurate communication of work activities with the field personnel represents the basis to a safe and successful completion of the project.

 

3D work plans do just that, they incorporate several pages of information into one model, clearly point out any safety concerns to the field personnel, eliminate any clashes between structural components, state the goals of the work plan including the end product and so much more. 3D work plans are becoming the future of construction planning.

INTEGRATED SHOP DRAWINGS 

2D / 3D SHOP DRAWINGS

Our team has the ability to create highly accurate shop drawings by incorporating multiple structural components and adequately account for the available space between the components within the structure. 

We can create two and three dimensional shop drawings in the following categories:

  • Drainage Shop Drawings

  • Fire Suppression Shop Drawings

  • Rebar Shop Drawings

  • Steel Shop Drawings

RENDERINGS AND ANIMATION

ACCURATELY CONVEYING IDEAS

Three-dimensional renderings and animations are the perfect way to accurately convey an idea or a process to your team, the owner and the general public. 

Our team has the know-how to generate highly accurate and life-like three-dimensional renderings and animation. We use different graphical styles for different type of ideas in order to represent them in the correct light. An accurate representation of an idea can be the catalyst to a highly successful project.
