BIM and 3D data can offer an impressive time reduction and increased precision in file-to-factory manufacturing. The process uses especially formatted 3D models for direct use by manufacturing companies in their CNC machines (cutters, millers, printers, etc.). 3-im is specialized in developing manufacturing 3D models, directly form BIM data eliminating error-prone, time-consuming and costly operations of re-designing, re-formatting, re-processing building information. Using parametric technologies, we also decrease the time of integrating/absorbing design changes or manufacturing specifications and requirements. We work with glass, cladding, steel, wood and stone manufacturer and suppliers.
