At present, the major advantage of using 3D construction models is to be able to visualise and make collision controls. The collision control itself internally in the individual discipline of a 3D construction model is carried out by the discipline’s own software programs.
But when it comes to inter-disciplinary collision control, ie between constructions, installations and architects, an external program is used. At Ramboll, we have commenced utilising Solibri Model Checker, which at present gives us what we need, ie a collision control where you are able to prepare reports and specific visualisation of the exact spot of the collision. In order to use Solibri, files have to be exchanged in IFC format, which is neutral. Hence, careful attention shall be paid to apply the newest software programs, which can use IFC for interchange.
Does anybody else have some good experience with the use of collision control on other projects? What are the disadvantages of other collision software programs?
