Generative CLT Panel Tool

Quick demo of our generative CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) panel tool for fabrication in CATIA #3DEXPERIENCE. First we run an algorithm using volumes to solve for optimized panel layout via rules (not shown in video), creating surfaces that are used as inputs into the CLT panel tool for fabrication. Upon instantiation of the tool, all production models data, attributes, BOM and […]

Unitized Curtainwall Facade Automation Tool – CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE

In this video we demo the use of UDF’s, resource tables, engineering templates and facade scripting for unitized curtainwall systems. for more info […]

Building Envelope Scripting with CATIA #3DEXPERIENCE

We wanted to illustrate what the Design for Fabrication solution experience looks like on a real project with CATIA #3DEXPERIENCE. The video above shows us scripting the bottom track, top track, glazing, cover panels and finally the soffits. In this skin there are also scuppers, embeds, ISA anchors, guardrail posts and more so there is a significant amount of construction […]
