Design Dazzling Façades At Lightning Speed

Generative Design Is a Game-Changer for Façade Engineers

Demand continues to grow for unique buildings that are also cost-efficient, sustainable and delivered rapidly. As a result, façade engineers are under pressure to balance a lot of competing factors: design faster, be sensitive to execution costs, work with complex façade panels and systems, predict the impact of each minute detail on the total project, and more.

Traditional design approaches, even with the aid of parametric tools, limit your solutions to known parameters and fixed inputs, and require manual intervention at each decision point. Generative design, on the other hand, enables facade teams to explore a broad range of viable solutions in a short amount of time. You’ll enjoy supercharged exploration cycles, ensure constructability and automatically optimize execution costs.

With a detailed, accurate, generative digital model that updates in real time on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, façade design timelines are cut in half. Users work with contextualized data, collaborate seamlessly with stakeholders in a virtual environment and determine the most feasible design based on project goals.

Generative façade design on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform allows you to:

  • Create unlimited sets of configurations. Impress customers with enhanced variability and unique concepts.
  • Cycle through increasingly stronger solutions as the program learns from and improves on every set. Eliminate rework between cycles.
  • Offload menial decisions to intelligent software.
  • Ensure financially sustainable and constructable systems.
  • Automatically track modification history.
  • Instantly generate models at LOD 400, complete with assembly instructions.

Generative Experience For Facade Makers

Building facade engineers are under pressure to design faster, be sensitive to execution costs, and accommodate complex facade panels and systems predicting the impact of each minute detail on the total project.

The 3DEXPERIENCE design tools formalized the computation design, meaning bespoke elements could be created using shared reference geometries and parameters to generate a whole assembly. This reduce the risks whilst increasing both the productivity and quality.
