The 9th 3D Repo British Information Modelling event was held in London at The Crypt on the Green on Tuesday 8th October 2019. We had a great number of guests join us to hear from a number of industry experts on new technologies, integrations, and industry issues. Plus, there was plenty of networking going on between everyone that joined us.
Enjoy a few snaps from the evening below, and we hope to see you at the next 3D Repo event in 2020…
Ben Hume-Paton, Creative Producer at UNIT9 shared progess with the new 3D Repo iPad app.
Pelin Gurkan, Pre Sales Consultant at Graphisoft spoke about parametric design and how it is ultimately a tool to support decision making throughout the design process. Algorithmic design, parametric design, computational design, generative design – all logic based designing. It is for optimisation, organising data and design, multiple design variations in a short time, and a preparation tool for manufacturing.
Simon Evans, Director, Digital Engineering at Atkins was there to talk about a new 3D Repo/ICON integration to enable digital twins.
George Stevenson, Managing Director at ActivePlan spoke about a brand new integration with 3D Repo where users can simply bring their models into 3DRepo and use ActivePlan to automatically tag objects to the right asset data and then manage the whole federated environment into the future.
Eleni Papadonikolaki, Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Building Information Modelling at UCL was there to talk the audience through the Innovate UK funded Delta Mobility Project involving BuroHappold, UCL, 3D Repo, Rhomberg Sersa, SNC Lavalin, Atkins, Georgia Tech, ARUP, HYPAR, and HOK.
Gordon Crick, Health & Safety Inspector at HSE was there to show that BIM is for preventing harm, explaining that BIM tools enhance foresight. Potential risks can be identified from the earliest opportunity in the design process.
To finish things off, Zane Ulhaq, Digital Engineering Manager at Atkins took us through SafetiBase, showing some real examples with models in 3D Repo. Zane explained that this is a really useful tool that can save lives, and is not just a tick box safety feature. Looking forward there will be great new developments for SafetiBase with the likes of HSE to make the tool even more powerful and beneficial to the industry.
