Our shop drawings simply translate the design concepts into a detailed fabrication road map. These drawings communicate an understanding of design intent and form the submittals sent to the architect or engineer for approval. The shop drawings we generate resolve connection issues by proposing details that work based on a thorough knowledge of our components and how things go together on the jobsite. For instance, a correctly designed BIM wall system allows for a much larger percentage of material to be pre-cut to exact dimensions off-site, which can result in significant material and labor savings.
Pulling 2-D Images directly from the 3-D Model
One of the advantages of our BIM capability is the streamlined nature of producing 2D documentation directly from the BIM model and supplementing that 2D information with 3D images that effectively complete the story. We have the capability to clearly show that our understanding of design intent is consistent with the designer’s.
3D Shop Drawings
3D Shop drawings are an excellent way of using the 3D model directly for assembly and installation. As more BIM-related requirements are placed on project delivery, Radius Track is ready to help you clear these hurdles. Our extended experience with 3D applications bridges the gap for you from 2D to 3D.
Communicating the design intent translated into our components
Communication is the key here. Whether it gets accomplished by 2D or 3D means, isn’t the concern as much as getting the message told clearly. In our case this communication shows:
- What we’ll provide.
- Where it will be located.
- How it will go together.
Showing Connection Details that are Carefully Considered
Some of the most important pieces that are shown in these shop drawings are the connection details. This will likely be the only place that these connection specifics are shown to this much detail anywhere in the project documentation. All of the fabrication approaches we take are custom-tuned to your needs: panelized, individual pieces or components, etc. We consult with you early and often to ensure we’re in alignment with your expectations in terms of process and product. You can trust our team of experienced professionals (with both the architectural and contracting experience) to provide workable solutions to your most head-scratching detailing challenges – carefully considered and clearly communicated.
