XS CAD Demo Virtual Reality for MEP and Architectural Projects at AU 2016
November 28, 2016 – India: XS CAD recently exhibited at the Autodesk University 2016 exhibition (15 – 17 November) in Las Vegas. This was the third time that XS CAD have exhibited at the annual event which has approximately 10,000 attendees from the construction, manufacturing and film design sectors.
As an established provider of BIM services to retailers, architects, homebuilders and MEP engineers, XS CAD views the AU show as an important platform to communicate and share some of our projects around the globe
XS CAD is pleased to announce the opening of new offices in the US and Australia. In addition to the UK office, XS CAD will now be able to service clients from two new offices in the US and one office in Australia.
XS CAD works with customers in countries such as the UK, US, Europe, Canada and Australia. The way forward for XS CAD is to approach each market based on the local needs and requirements, and develop technological expertise along with customers.
Quick Turn-Around 3D M&E (MEP) Coordinated Drawings for Building Services Engineers and MEP contractors
XS CAD is a noteworthy name when it comes to provision of MEP services including MEP Modeling services, HVAC Modeling services, 3D MEP Coordination and MEP Drafting services to the need of contractors and consultants within the building services sector.
Deploying latest software, skills and capabilities of our talented team, we convert the designs sketched on paper into electronic CAD drawing formats. While doing so, we ensure that we pay attention to the intricate details of the drawings, maintaining corporate styles and industry standards.
As a market leader, XS CAD has provided pre-construction planning, BIM and 3D modelling solutions and services to a number of engineering and architectural firms for the last 15 year. The company is now pleased to announce the introduction of electrical, mechanical, public health and fire protection design services to building services engineers, designers and consultants. The new Building Services Design offering is provided by an experienced LEED accredited team of electrical and mechanical design engineers who are proficient at designing new and refurbished buildings in the US, UK and Australia.
Visualising a store before it is constructed from a set of specifications and 2D drawings is not easy, neither for designers or contractors. One of the major reasons why rendered 3D retail images are used is to give a glimpse of the store experience and provide a clear picture of what it will look like, even before it is constructed.
Infographic – Using Outsourcing Firms for Homebuilding Design
Large homebuilders face an increasing workload due to the need to provide accurate and more detailed design models and drawings. With growing skills shortages in their own markets homebuilders are increasingly looking for partner companies to support their workload, usually by looking for international support.
It is a key element of MEP design and is concerned with spatial configuration and layout of building services trades (HVAC, pipe work, public health and electrical systems). It also takes into account the location of elements from other disciplines such as architecture and structure.
XS CAD has more than 250 team members working with us. We have offices in the UK and India. Over and above this, we also have presence in the US, Canada and Australia. We believe this gives us access to the American sub-continent, European continent as well as the Austral-Asian continent.
Why The Lowest Cost Outsourcing Supplier May Not Be The Most Cost Effective
Architectural design and drafting support often includes, visually enticing renderings, building models, and technical drawings. Drafting production allows architects to convey their design ideas, provide instructions to contractors for construction, and record the building design as it already exists.
With ArchiCAD it is easier to create a virtual building, a 3D Building Information Model (BIM) for an architectural design while concurrently developing coordinated 2D construction documents. The AEC industry makes use of CAD tools to generate 3D models that ……
