A couple weeks ago we talked about 3D printing could become integrated with architecture. Almost a year ago, a french family became the first to live in a 3D printed house. Which would have felt like a dream not that many years ago. Thankfully technology has been growing leaps and bounds and making dreams become [...]
Laser scanning and drones are amazing on their own. They've also been combined to do a version of 3D mapping of exteriors for a little while. But check out this video showing a drone laser scanning in confined spaces the interior of a building. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IMSozUpFFkU
Laser scanning is a non-contact technological process that digitally captures and documents the shape of rooms and objects using a laser light. The scanner uses the laser to create "point clouds". Point clouds are a cluster of dots that lay where the laser hits a surface (i.e. floor, wall, ceiling or object). Simply put, laser [...]
In an earlier post we talked briefly about understanding BIM. Arch Daily recently posted an article showing 10 projects in which BIM was essential. The article talks about how the BIM process was integral in helping the AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) teams be on the same page, produce exact dimensions for fabrication and complete [...]
An early sketch from one of our healthcare projects where there is a linear accelerator being replaced.
We recently came across this article on Arch Daily showing a sculptural pavilion structure that was built by robots and drones as a project by Institute for Computational Design and Construction and the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design at the University of Stuttgart. This moth web-like pavilion is 12 meters and 1 [...]
Laser scanning is non-contact technological process that digitally captures and documents the shape of objects or rooms using a laser light. Using the line of laser light the scanner is then able to create a “point cloud”. Point Clouds are a cluster of dots that lay where the laser hit the surface of an object, [...]
Google AI (Artificial Intelligence) On May 8-10, Google released something awesome, their new Google AI Assistant. During the event they demonstrated a situation in which the AI was able to call to set up a reservation by calling and talking to the person at the business on it’s own, as per the owner’s direction. [...]
What does BIM stand for? BIM stands for Building Information Modeling. Why use BIM? Mistakes and inaccuracies cost time and money and Building Information Modeling can help avoid them. It is an intelligent 3D modeling process for professionals from the architecture, engineering and construction fields. With BIM we have the tools and insight to [...]
We went the extra mile and laser scanned our newest project on Locust street in Philadelphia. Laser scanning allows us to ensure that the existing walls, floors, and ceilings are 100% accurate for us to begin designing from. All of the laser scanning was done by Kore Design Architecture.
