Collision Detection of Building Facility Pipes and Ducts Based on BIM Technology
As construction space becomes increasingly constrained, the need to avoid collision among various HVAC, sewage and electronic pipes has become a pressing concern for modern building engineering projects. This article uses Building Information Modeling(BIM) technology to construct a three-dimensional piping model and utilizes Autodesk Navisworks software to integrate project data from various operators in order to pinpoint potential conflicts locations and generate a comprehensive ducting collision detection report. The advantages of this virtual construction vehicle include improving engineering, designing quality and efficiency.
