Application of BIM technology in complex pipe corridors


Create complex gallery model

Pipe corridors need to pass through important structures

Surrounding barriers with high risks need to be removed or protected

Identify potential risk points in the solution

To elaborate practical project implementation plans

The advantages and disadvantages of the scheme are compared to facilitate the stability and optimization of the scheme

The tube corridor section is a circular structure



Create MEP models of complex corridor

By using Inventor, it is very convenient and efficient to create the pipe and equipment model of underground comprehensive pipe corridor with circular section and straight, curved and double inclination, as well as internal mechanical and electrical systems.

The normal cutting of complex tunnel tunnel model is created

Using Inventor, it is very convenient and quick to perform normal cutting at any location of the main body of the underground composite pipe corridor with circular structure and straight, curved or double oblique cross-section.



Inventor allows you to quickly and accurately annotate and create a normal section diagram of the main body of an underground composite pipe gallery with a circular section with straight -, curved - or double-diagonal sections.



Integrate other 3D software to create device models

Inventor is compatible with and integrates the gallery mechanical and electrical equipment and related models provided by UG NX, Pro/Engineer, CATIA, Solidworks and other equipment suppliers.

Statistical Quantity

Use Inventor's powerful BOM function to accurately count the number of mechanical and electrical equipment and related accessories in the pipe gallery.


Supporting application of other BIM tools in pipe corridor


Create the terrain

In Civil 3D, relevant functions such as relief surface are used to create terrain and landform matching roads, Bridges, pipe corridors, etc., and the terrain model maintains the dynamic relationship with relevant elements (such as feature lines, road models and relief objects).



Earthwork balance

Reduce redundancy in the workflow by analyzing the built model. Get feedback in real time when optimizing the design. Use slope, elevation, and contour analysis to better understand your surface model. Earthwork deployment and earthwork functions help contractors and engineers plan the movement, quantity, and placement of materials during construction.
According to the design changes, the filling and excavation diagram can be quickly generated to:
Analyze the balance point of excavation and filling
Determine the number and direction of materials to move
Designated pit and dump site



Drawing standard

Use a rich country-specific CAD style library to meet your civil mapping and documentation needs. Control color, linestyle, contour increment and label by style. Use the framework to customize the organization's style and standards. Share drawing and design standards across organizations through style management tools.
Label the position of gravity pipe and pressure pipe passing through the route or sampling line in the vertical and cross section drawings
Label the position where the pressure pipe crosses the sampling line in the cross section
Specify the direction of the cross section in the cross - section diagram axis
View the cross-sectional view from left to right or right to left
Specify elevation values to enhance visibility in the cross-sectional diagram



Construction documents

Generate construction drawings, including annotated cross section, vertical section and slope relief design. Use style-based formatting to better maintain drawing standards while automating typical drawing operations. Using external references and data shortcuts to generate sketches of multiple drawings, this workflow USES only one model instance to create shop drawings. Synchronize construction drawings to reflect model changes.
Construction documents allow users to get comments directly from design objects and update them automatically as design changes. The software also responds to changes in drawing scale and view orientation, and updates labels when printing scale changes or rotations occur in different viewports.
The software also includes cross labeling of pressure pipe in vertical and cross sectional drawings and cross labeling of gravity pipe in vertical and cross sectional drawings.



Model integration

Import data and merge models: integrate gallery and terrain models created by Inventor, Revit, and Civil 3D
Integrate data from existing RVT, FBX, LandXML, DWG, SHP, IMX, and point cloud file formats. Import from a file-based or database source to create the base model from multiple sources
·Support for new data formats including: AutoCAD 3D DWG?, Civil 3D DWG?, 3D DGN, IFC, and Sketchup (SKP)
·For some data sources, cloud imports (InfraWorks only) or local imports are chosen based on the user's preferences or project requirements



Model merge with roaming browsing

Browse: ability to export from an interface in Revit or Inventor the ability to import and integrate complete subsurface integrated trench or gallery models into Navisworks. It can also browse the entire model and roam through it from a first-person perspective.



Measurement of the query

Measurement queries: in Navisworks, the surface and point capture feature captures the size savings from the model for greater accuracy and effective control



Review comments

Use the review annotation tool in the Navisworks project review software to communicate design intentions more clearly and facilitate collaboration between team members and different disciplines to better predict and minimize errors and omissions in the early stages of the project.



Enhance visualization and combine with virtual reality technology

Twinmotion allows you to export high-quality images, videos, and 360-degree panoramic files in a short amount of time at extremely fast rendering speeds. Twinmotion supports exported panoramic images and videos for web browsers and mobile devices. Users can interact with and browse the scene in a 360-degree manner.



Virtual Reality

From project construction to post-project review, Twinmotion allows you to explore 3D models in a VR (virtual reality) environment at any time. Twinmotion supports the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Gear VR headsets. What you see is what you get, any changes the user makes to the 3D model are rendered in real time in virtual reality!
