Robotization can alter the construction process in several different ways.
FREMONT, CA: Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a methodology for guiding and monitoring construction activities using digital, 3D building requirements and design plans, It has a significant effect mostly on architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) industries saving specialists both time and resources.Aside from allowing for simple visualization, BIM has greatly aided collaboration between various sectors, often ensuring adequate, up-to-date project data.
Robotics is yet another groundbreaking technology that will transform the AEC industry. Surprisingly, robotics and BIM can be mutually beneficial. Robots may perform routine or hazardous tasks, enhancing safety and efficiency on the job site. The Building Information Model (BIM) could serve as a guide for robotics, mainly on the job.
BIM Workflow & Robotics
Robotization can alter the construction process in several different ways. Undoubtedly, robots have the potential to render certain human workers redundant. On the other hand, the advantages are much more significant and may even involve the development of entirely work opportunities.
To begin with, robots, like BIM, may help make several construction processes both efficient and cheaper.By that the possibility of misinterpretation and expensive failures, BIM helps AEC companies minimize time and resources.
Robots can end up saving time and resources by automating time-consuming and possibly dangerous repetitive tasks. There is no need to employ many professionals to monitor everyone as they only demand minimal assistance and guidance.
More significantly, robotization reduces the chance of costly mistakes as well as the possibility of fatal accidents. They can also be helpful in extreme environments for long periods. AEC companies also use robots as safety inspectors, searching for people who aren't wearing hard hats or simply documenting the situation.
Let's look at the ways robotization can help speed up and boost the BIM workflow:
Some robots are programmed to examine terrain and objects. They identify issues with sensors and other technology and assist in keeping the building model up-to-date.
Assisting with Mundane or Dangerous Tasks
Carrying heavy loads, digging, drilling, cutting, parts assembling, and robots support other tedious yet inevitable activities.
3D Printing Full Structures
Some robots can 3D print actual metal structures in addition to those that can 3D print construction models.
Helping Achieve Sustainability
Some robots are programmed to conserve energy by continuously monitoring the building's temperature, lighting, and air quality.
3D Printing Complex Components
Some robots can 3D print parts of the building faster and more accurately than conventional manufacturing methods.
