Design for Fabrication

Build efficiency into every infrastructure project through innovative collaboration

Civil Design for Fabrication

Connect your civil design from concept through fabrication

Authorities have high expectations for timely, cost-effective infrastructure projects. When civil designers and engineers use different applications to address conceptual and detailed design phases, redundant rework—and resulting delays—are common. When designers and engineers work in technology-enforced siloes, each loses out on expert knowledge that can inform project improvements. A lack of integration and interoperability between BIM applications leads to errors and frequent requests for information. Productivity can be improved by capitalizing on specialized knowledge in the conceptual design stage and integrating expert know-how in a single source BIM environment. When deliverables are not linked to the master design, engineering modifications result in change orders, delays, and cost overruns.

The Civil Design for Fabrication Industry Process Experience, built on the cloud-based, collaborative 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, efficiently and consistently covers project requirements end-to-end: from planning and design to fabrication and execution within an integrated BIM environment. Collate, model, and simulate point clouds, terrain, earthworks, hydrology, geology, alignments, and more. Civil IFC data types cater to large projects, such as roads, rail, tunnels, or bridges. Using integrative, parametric, associative, and computational modeling methods along with customizable and repeatable templates, teams can maximize project value through iterative design. 

Civil Design for Fabrication’s integrated BIM environment promotes a highly collaborative approach by linking the appropriate technologies. Leverage talent, technique, and technology to deliver high performance, value, and efficiency.

Key capabilities & benefits

  • The Capability to Design Anything. Leverage comprehensive modeling capabilities, normal and large-scale range model mapping on Geo Location and the scalability of the cloud. 
  • Project and Construction Control. Take control of your next project. Scale down waste and rework by stretching models into manufacturing and assembly phases.
  • Blend Data from Design through Construction. “Same page” authoring tools scale to reveal huge amounts of data, improving coordination for all collaborators
  • The Power of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. Learn how true project collaboration looks by embracing this multi-BIM approach that enables simultaneous, real-time access to design models. Multi-disciplinary stakeholders can work together in a single data-centric environment. Use the Dassault Systèmes AEC Data Model to import CAD and BIM formats as well as other forms of data.
