XS CAD Limited
We provide a range of architectural CAD modeling services for our customers to aid the design, planning and visualization phase of projects.
Our experienced team of modellers have created models for entire shopping centres, hospitals, airports, hotel complexes, transport infrastructure, residential areas and mixed-use sites. Our range of architectural 3d modeling services includes the following:
Revit BIM 3D Models
Using Revit Architecture from Autodesk, we create intelligent Revit BIM CAD models (Building Information Models) for a range of architectural projects. As a parametric modeling utility Autodesk Revit offers a number of enhanced advantages to provide greater control and accuracy to the design stage of projects. Revit Architecture is also a database driven software utility, which means that changes to schedules, plans, elevations, sections or the 3D model itself result in coordinated updates to all corresponding areas. This is referred to as ‘integrated bidirectional associativity’ by Autodesk.
Due to the database structure of Revit Architecture, the software also allows for a range of other benefits including material takeoff, interference checks and improved compatibility with other Autodesk visualization tools.
Our Revit project experience includes development of construction drawing sets for leading homebuilders in the US, Australia and Canada, development of models and associated drawings and schedules for multi-use buildings in the UK, US and Australia including high-rise structures and creation of Revit based construction drawing sets for retail design updates.
Point Cloud 3D BIM Models
We take 3D laser scan data in the form of ‘point cloud’ data and use it to create accurate Revit BIM models for architectural projects for architects, retailers and general contractors. Typically we will create 3D models for existing building where no accurate or up to date plans are in place. We will usually also model the proposed alterations (false ceiling and additional structural items) so that our customer has an accurate and up to date model with which to progress their design.
3D CAD Building Models
We create building models using Autodesk Revit, ArchiCAD and AutoCAD Architecture for architects, consulting engineers, structural engineers, main contractors and sub-contractors. Using 2D layout plans and elevations as a starting point, we create entire architectural and structural building models to exact standards and specifications. We also undertake to maintain the models for such projects throughout the duration of a project – from design through to installation/handover.
Google Sketchup Models
We provide a number of customers with Google Sketchup models for all stages of the design process. Our Google Sketchup Modeling services are used by architects, developers and specialist users. 3D models created in Sketchup can be as simple or as detailed as needed. Sketchup models have the added flexibility of being used in a number of other applications including Revit, AutoCAD and other virtual software.
4D CAD Building Models
We create 3D models with the added element of time based phasing for main contractors and project managers. These models show the development of a model over the duration of a planned build and enable more effective resource and budget management.
3D CAD Component Modeling & Revit Family Modeling
We create 3D model libraries (using AutoCAD or Revit) for all equipment, fixtures, fittings and furniture within construction and engineering domains. Our Revit family modeling services are used by original equipment manufacturers and include all features of Revit family models including parametric modeling features and constraints.
