Design for Fabrication

Build efficiency into every infrastructure project through innovative collaboration

Structure Design for Fabrication

Connect your structure design from concept through fabrication

Structural engineers are being tasked with producing structures that are better designed, safer, and more efficient to prefabricate and erect. They must juggle these requirements and find the optimum solution by conducting multiple project studies in an increasingly compressed timeline. Owners and designers are demanding more complex structure. Now structural engineers must constantly innovate to deliver structures that are more lightweight, incorporate untried materials, use modern design solutions, among other challenges. Fragmented solutions for managing multiple models limit structural engineers’ abilities to produce engineered solutions using an advanced delivery method at the right cost.

The Structure 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 with integrated BIM environments.  Model, simulate, and analyze any structural element from a wide range of projects including concrete and steel frames, precasts, façades, bridges, and tunnels.Use integrative, parametric, associative, and computational modeling methods to increase productivity and optimize project value through iterative design.

Structure Design for Fabrication links the right data to facilitate a highly collaborative approach. Marshal talent, technique, and technology to deliver high performance and value, while reducing waste and embodied energy. 

Key capabilities & benefits

  • Deliver Higher Performing Buildings and Civil Infrastructure. Save time in design, limit dead ends, and lower costs across the entire lifecycle.
  • Improve Project and Construction Control. Reduce construction waste and field rework when early models are extended into manufacturing and assembly.
  • A Single-Source 3D Truth. In a single screen find authoring tools or access huge amounts of data, easing coordination for all collaborators.
  • The Power of 3DEXPERIENCE. Create a data-centric environment like never before through a multi-BIM approach on your next project. Benefit from a truly collaborative environment where stakeholders across multiple disciplines enjoys simultaneous, real-time access to project data and design models. Incorporate multiple CAD and BIM formats and data sources thanks to the Dassault Systèmes AEC Data Model.
