Types of Customers
Visicon lets designers rapidly collect different BIM file types in one place and immediately visualize all models – not just the geometry, but the data embedded within – and automate quality assurance checking rules to give them the confidence they require in their projects.
Structural engineers create models from their analysis software, coordinate them with models created by other consultants, and then typically use another 3D modeling tool to render their drawings. Keeping track of the constant changes to ensure accuracy and consistency across all of these models is a challenge, and creates risk.
Visicon lets customers rapidly collect different model types in one place and immediately visualize – not just the geometry, but the data embedded within - and automate checking rules. Visicon can also automatically generate tributary areas, take down loads, display load paths and even create 3D BIM tendons.
MEP engineers are generating more and more detailed 3D models of engineered building systems to complete their designs and render their drawings. They may also help coordinate their efforts with other consultants on their projects without having direct access to the software used to build those models. Visicon gives customers rapid access to the underlying information they need to ensure their drawings are properly connected with their designs.
Architects are typically responsible for a fully coordinated project but don't usually have direct access to their design consultants' models. Visicon allows customers to immediately understand models, thereby increasing confidence that their vision is being met. Customers also can share their models with high-quality graphics in an easy user interface.
Preconstruction engineers are responsible for keeping track of the many changes in the design which could have significant impact on the overall project cost and/or schedule of completion. Visicon provides customers insight into all of the various 3D models being iterated by their architects and consulting engineers so they can complete their work with confidence.
Post-tensioning Designers & Suppliers
Current BIM technology limits the representation of post-tensioning as single lines only, regardless of whether it is a band that will end up requiring over 30 tendons or a single distributed tendon. Suppliers are generating 2D shop drawings. In both cases, designers can't easily visualize the scale of their designs and produce 3D models other project stakeholders can incorporate into an overall constructability review. Vision lets customers easily create 3D BIM tendons and communicate their design intent more clearly, avoiding costly installation issues.
