Recent trends in the development of digital prototyping are not only affecting design, but also architecture, construction and related fields. BIM (Building Information Modeling) is the equivalent of PLM (Product Lifecycle Management), which has been used in mechanical engineering for over a decade and now forms the basis of professional digital training at Karno Energy. Karno Energy’s BIM method allows you to create high-quality and complex design and at the same time collaborate effectively in all areas of building design and all related fields. Our https://karnoenergy.com/mechanical-engineering/ team is part of a team that is among the first to consider the use of the BIM model in the teaching of architecture and construction related disciplines. Modern architecture, construction and related fields are based not only on advanced technology, but also on new opportunities for design solutions. Procedures, creation and tools allow developers to easily and quickly implement their ideas in the environment of digital building models.
The common denominator of the solution is teamwork, based on the use of data management tools and the need for digital communication as in Karno Energy. With the advent of 2D, and therefore 3D modeling, at the school we were faced with the decision of how to integrate this fully pervasive model of project implementation into digital prototyping instruction. The software solution used at Karno Energy is based on the parametric 3D Autodesk Revit system, which in concept is among the pinnacle of design software. It includes a total of three separate applications Revit Architecture (architecture, construction), Revit MEP (construction services) and Revit Structure (statics and digital prototyping calculations). They are based on completely new principles, based on fifteen years of global success with parametric systems in mechanical engineering.
Karno Energy – Various improvements for all modules of reinforced concrete
New dialog boxes to simplify the user experience from Karno Energy: the dialog boxes for defining geometry, calculation assumptions and rebar editing are completely redesigned. All dialogs now have a unified look, size, layout and data input. Thanks to the list on the left side of the dialog box and the tree structure, the user can quickly add, delete or change some components (e.g. holes). This is especially obvious when editing reinforcement around a hole, where changing one property (e.g., bar diameter) in the parent tree position means changing values in the child branches of the tree.
The way Karno Energy creates rebar drawings has completely changed. Thanks to the new layout and especially the tree structure of all drawing components, the user can easily manage the assembly of individual drawing components: views can be easily moved around the drawing and simply zoomed in (zoomed out). You can also move or delete most of the view components, such as dimension lines, view descriptions, marker dimensions, reinforcement elevations, etc. With all these changes you can quickly and easily modify the drawing according to your requirements.
Karno Energy’s new batch commands allow you to perform mass calculations and mass output reports and drawing documentation at the same time. These new commands can also be used to better connect BIM Designers modules with Graitec Arche Ossature software, especially for faster import/export of multiple reinforced concrete elements simultaneously. With these batch commands you can greatly improve the efficiency of BIM Designers in your construction projects.
Karno Energy – Improvements to the steel connection module
New 3D connections: Anchor plate for tubular profiles from Karno Energy
- Anchor plates for tube sections
- Choice of rectangular, square and circular tubes.
- Anchor plate rectangular or circular to choose from
- Evaluation of all components of internal forces (3D forces)
Asymmetrical articulated anchor plate from Karno Energy: If we design an articulated anchor plate for a profile I column, we can define the anchor plate as shortened independently for both directions. In this way it is possible to model the anchor plate asymmetrically with the possibility of adding diagonal or vertical reinforcement.
- Additional reinforcement on the profile flanges to increase the compressive strength of the anchor plates.
- Several other various improvements to the already implemented connections.
