Dassault Systèmes releases new solution for the AEC industry

Dassault Systèmes has revealed a new industry solution based on its 3DEXPERIENCE platform. 

Façade Design for Fabrication is aimed at architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) companies and provides industry-specific processes and capabilities to support the design and delivery of high performance buildings. 

“This new industry solution experience based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform supports an intuitive, intelligent and integrated environment that reduces manual processes, and addresses the poor collaboration created by the industry’s current siloed point solutions,” said Monica Menghini, executive vice president, Corporate Strategy, Industry and Marketing. “In the end, the Façade Design for Fabrication industry solution experience is about making better decisions earlier and reducing rework so our AEC partners can reliably and profitably exceed their customer’s expectations.”  

The new solution includes integrated planning which allows for buildings to be quickly conceived. These plans can then be linked directly with façade detail design thanks to the scalability and collaborative capabilities of the cloud. 

Thanks to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, which runs on Microsoft Windows, façade shapes, pattern and structure can be laid out and extended into shop drawings and the bill of materials. Companies can also use dynamic applications, which validate requirements as they go, to help plan building projects.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables companies to gain immediate feedback from customers thanks to a collaborative innovation space, ensuring projects are carried out smoothly and in line with the requirements of the client. 

“The Façade Design for Fabrication industry solution experience is about achieving fast and early feedback by connecting project stakeholders, over the building lifecycle, quickly iterating concept models and extending the façade through design, fabrication, and into the construction phase,” said Marty Doscher, vice president, AEC industry, Dassault Systèmes. “It enables data-driven planning processes, and early constructability input to inform decisions before the costs to make changes become prohibitive.”
