3D modelling in the construction and engineering industry is the creation of 3 dimensional images of buildings, infrastructure, and construction elements.
3D models can be made from traditional 2D drawings, or created from scratch in a 3D modelling software package.
McGregor has a strong track record preparing accurate 3D models for large and complex projects including:
- Sructural steel
- Plant & equipment
- Logistics & access
- Temporary works & scaffolds
- Cranes & hoists
Typically the sources of information used to model new and existing buildings and structures include:
- 2D drawings (hand drawn and CAD files)
- Point cloud surveys of existing structures
- Plant and equipment specifications
- Surround models
- Maps & GIS information
