The Graph below represents many months of research into relationships that occur during the development of building projects, considering how BIM interacts with other ‘things’ the structure is based on the NBS Periodic Table of BIM, please explore the ‘links’ between different objects.
Whole-life performance is increasingly talked about within the building sector. But what is it and why is it important? A new document titled “Building Whole-Life Performance” has been developed by the Built Environment Knowledge Transfer Network. It provides answers, examples and references for those who are interesting in knowing more about the topic. Building Whole-Life […]
A two year old girl who was born with a serious heart defect has had a life saving operation thanks to a 3D printer. Mina had a hole between two chambers of her heart, but doctors were able to use the printer to create a model to help surgeons plan the operation. We were joined […]
A 3D printed model of a patient’s heart has been used by surgeons to help plan how to fix the heart. Researchers at King’s College London have pioneered a ground-breaking technique whereby a 3D printer working from scans on the patient, creates a physical replica of a patient’s organ. Surgeons can then use the plastic […]
