Why we model in 3D
3D modeling allows Capital Engineering to effectively perform and communicate multi-discipline engineering design. The relationships between objects, regardless of scale, can be visualized and evaluated instantly.
Our multi-discipline design team works together in the 3D environment to ensure a cohesive design. The integrated nature of a model allows us to confirm clearances, inspect tolerances, and mitigate interferences. This translates to cost and schedule reduction in design and construction.
The flexibility of the model allows us to incorporate client feedback quickly and accurately back into the design. The impact of changes can be observed immediately thus improving the final products.
What we model
Below is a list of 3D elements we use to model our designs, however, we are not limited to these items. If it can be imagined, it can be modeled.
- Civil Land and Soil Developments
- Architectural Envelopes
- Structural Steel
- Mechanical Equipment
- Material Handling Units
- Process and Utility Piping
- Electrical Cables, Trays and Junction Boxes
- Instrumentation Panels, Alarms and Indicators
- Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning Systems
- Laser Scanning and Point Cloud Modeling
What we obtain from the model
3D models allow for the production of a wide range of physical and digital deliverables. They include, but are not limited to, 2D (traditional) and 3D drawings, bill of materials, technical specifications, engineering calculations, finite element analysis, animations videos, manuals, and CAM files (computer aided manufacturing).
Our specialists are well trained and actively use the most current modeling software available. Click here to see a listing of our software tools.
