Computational design is the future of design – Giraffe

Design is about creating. Designers that can efficiently create data will be the ones who can efficiently use data.

At Giraffe we’re working to make data creation as intuitive to designers as a pencil. We are building software that allows designers to create BIM models without friction. We have created the ability for teams of digitally enabled designers to collaborate in real time by exposing computational design scripts they’ve written in any language via API to any platform.

Thankyou to Michael Asher, from Giraffe, for sharing this exciting development.

Michael’s office, in the St Helens area, where the magic happens.

Steel Detailing Presentation

Thankyou koredrafting for your presentation last night.

What we learnt:

  • A well defined origin, grid and reduced level is important to a successful BIM project.
  • Having a project datum to reduce the X and Y value improves the model performance for steel detailing projects.
  • .IFC file format works for importing and exporting building models.
  • Clash checks is a main benefit of 3D modelling.
  • What the deliverable’s of the shop detailer are. ie single parts, group assemblies, marking plans, parts list, bill of materials, DXF data, NC1 data, transmittal’s etc.
