ON-SITE WORK INSPECTION AND COMMISSIONING THROUGH BIM

SXD brings new uses to BIM models.

Integrated On-Site Work Inspection :

Our app lets you integrate meeting minutes, remarks, pictures directly into your BIM models for works progress monitoring and finished works monitoring.

This creates an efficient and time-saving process for all stakeholders of the project and ensures a better quality control for the whole project.

3D PRINTED HABITAT ON MARS FOR THE “AMERICA MAKES” NASA COMPETITION

Our 3D printed habitat can be considered as a simple start in Mars exploration and colonization.

To confront this challenge, the small habitat can be replicated in greater numbers in order to build small villages. Foraging for water will remain another challenge.

Site modelling and uses of city information modelling methods (CIM) were an important part of our study to connect the BIM model of our building to its site.

That’s one small habitation for a man, one new home for mankind.
