Up the hill backwards, we'll be alright (David Bowie)
Received an email from Cadalyst about the white paper just as I'm involved on a job where they are about to use 3D model printing
Fused Deposition Modeling™ (FDM®) and PolyJet® are two of the most advanced and effective additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing technologies available. They span the range from budget-friendly, desktop modeling devices to large-format, factory-floor equipment that draw from the capital expenditure budget, and can produce a range of output from precise, finely detailed models to durable production goods. While there is crossover in applications and advantages, these two technology platforms remain distinct and bring different benefits.
Learn more about the differences between these two technologies to select the right one for your application, demands and constraints.
“What this report clearly shows is an industry in transition from the stage when the early adopters are taking the lead to a position where BIM is becoming the norm.
“In the UK, through BIM, we are at the forefront of a significant change in how buildings are conceived, designed, built and maintained. This change has the potential to bring improved efficiencies and profitability to the construction sector, and better buildings to clients, something current users of BIM have reported in this survey.
“There remain significant challenges and investment of both capital and time are needed. However, there is a wide appreciation of the benefits BIM will bring and the projections of BIM adoption tell us that the UK can be world leaders in this.” Richard Waterhouse, Chief Executive, RIBA EnterprisesThe full NBS National BIM Survey will be released at BIM SHOW LIVE on 23 April 2014 and will be available on theNBS.com from 24 April 2014.
