BIM Firm Uses 3D Scanning to Design Custom Construction Equipment

DJM is now using its Building Information Modeling (BIM) and 3D scanning services to create custom equipment.

BIM Firm Uses 3D Scanning to Design Custom Construction Equipment

Since 2007, DJM has been creating custom designs for multi-million dollar construction jobs. 

Founded by a master plumber and mechanical contractor, the DJM team has a comprehensive understanding of the construction life cycle and the equipment required for each stage.

 This deep industry knowledge and operations perspective allowed DJM to use its Building Information Modeling (BIM) and 3D scanning services to create custom equipment.

This new venture started after a national mechanical contractor approached DJM to design a special frame for trucks. Due to its wide variety of services, the contractor needed its trucks to carry a wide variety of heavy tools. 

While functional, the company's current truck frame limited day-to-day capabilities. They decided to work with DJM's 3D scanning and drawing teams to create what was needed.Before starting the design process, the DJM team 3D scanned one of the mechanical trucks. 

This built a dimensionally perfect digital model of the vehicle that the DJM design team used to measure and examine the plans. Having a 3D digital copy of the truck allowed the team to test whether the structure and design of the equipment would work before any fabrication occurred.

After some discussion, the DJM team proposed a structure that uses additional hooks and bars to increase the truck's load capacity. Contractors wanted a frame that would increase vertical clearance and free the truck bed for heavy equipment. 

Using the 3D scanned digital model, DJM was able to change an initial concept in just a few days.After refining the original idea, DJM superimposed the digital model of the truck frame onto the laser scanner.

Both teams reviewed and discussed the 3D plans from the comfort of their respective offices. This ensured that the contractor understood and was satisfied with the appearance and function of the truck frame prior to manufacture.
