Master’s student in construction engineering
The combination of BIM and digital fabrication faces several interoperability challenges. Currently, these two technological advances are evolving in parallel and their convergence is little studied. Walid’s research project aims to combine these two technologies in order to project the construction industry into a more visually accessible future.
In concrete terms, the integration of BIM-oriented design activities with digital construction can significantly increase the performance of the construction workflow and thus contribute to the development of the industry. This study presents an overview of the different gaps of this interoperability under these different dimensions accompanied by an explanation of the workflows used in digital fabrication applied to construction. Its concretization resides in the fabrication of a model in a BIM environment by enumerating the major obstacles encountered and by identifying the possible development paths for a better adoption of BIM in digital fabrication.
