In 3D BIM modeling services, LOD stands for Level of Development and it defines how and in what way a project will begin and final look at the end of the project. This helps designers and contractors in illustrating the different characteristics at various levels of project development. Our BIM engineers and designers work closely with the clients to understand the needs of the project and we create the architectural BIM modeling based on the provided information.
Attention is given to ensure the details don’t vanish on scaling and all our deliverables are tested rigorously to ensure top quality output. Equal attention is given to delivery before or on-time and we boast of the quickest turnaround time among those offering BIM modeling services.
Every Town Planning Drafting has its own set of challenges and requirements associated with it. So, the needs of the client vary when it comes to creating a Town Planning Documentation set. Some of the standard documents we provide as a part of the Town Planning Documentation set are:
The initial stage of the construction. Here the project model and the concept is explained on a basic level. The models, at this stage, define the parameters like area, volume, heights, orientation etc, to be specified in the 3D model. All the information provided here is to be considered an approximation.
In the second stage of detailing, the specification regarding the quantity and materials are provided. Here, the model will graphically represent the details with approximate quantities, shape, sizes, locations, and orientation of the project. Any non-geometric / graphics information is also included in the models at this stage.
This is where the measurements and specifications are made precise. This model gives you the exact details of the requirement and based on the calculation, the raw materials and items are taken into consideration.
At this stage, further clarity is obtained as the initial construction has been initiated. Any clash detection is rectified at this stage. In this LOD, the building interface and elements interconnecting with various systems and building elements is made possible.
At this stage, the model is created with finer details to assist the team in assembling the design and fabrication. This stage can be considered as the final model where the complete detailing of the project is done.
This stage LOD model is the graphical representation of the finished project. Any corrections or alterations made during construction are reflected here. This model will serve as a point of reference for the maintenance and operation works to be continued in a systematic way. This is the final stage of Model development.
Send your CAD drawings or Blueprints in any of the supported formats while placing order. Also specify the LOD needed
We analyze the project requirements and set up a consultation session to understand your needs
Depending on the LOD type, the project is allocated to the dedicated production team, who execute it as per your needs
The first draft is shared with you after stringent quality checks, any corrections are implemented
The project files are sent to you
LOD model may not be as precise as the BIM Execution Plan (BIMXP), it has its own importance when it comes to construction project drafting. Some of the key feature of LOD specifications are:
Yes. We regularly work on international projects. Thankfully, creating LOD models for a BIM project does not require physical presence.
We suggest that depending on the need for the project, going for one specific model is not economical. In practice, an LOD 200-300 is far enough for plan coordination & virtual construction. But going for fabrication drawing level models (LOD 400-500) would be a necessity when your project is near-completion.
As per the guidelines, a LOD 300 model gives the structural engineer details regarding the exact dimension, location and orientation of different objects. This is appropriate for permanent sets of permit drawings.
With LOD 400 specification, higher level fabrication models are prepared with complete detailing, fabrication, assembly and installation information. Since you need a model that fills in the gap between these two standards and this is where LOD 350 fits in the picture. The LOD 350 contains information about the construction layout and they bring clarity to the design and construction process.
In the case of Construction or 3D planning, in addition to the 3D BIM modeling, in an editable, native format, we also provide the data collected into the tables (quantities, conflicts in plans, schedules).
For plan coordination, the final product is a self-dependent package that can readily be used for construction.
We use Revit, ArchiCAD, SolidWorks, Navisworks, AutoCAD, and Solid Edge for your 3D BIM modeling service requirements.
QeCAD are a very detailed and easy to deal with firm, that aided me (an interior Designer) produce photo realistic 3d render views of a future renovation project. They delivered an end result of a kitchen I have designed in CAD which exceeded my expectations. This aided me tremendously by helping my client be able to visualise their end result, of which they too were blown away. Their attention to detail was second to none even down to the lifeli...
QeCAD did an excellent job creating a plan/drawing for a 20x20 Pergola I sold a customer in Aurora, IL. They are super friendly and worked quickly and professionally to turn this around in 48 hours. I was impressed with the drawings and details. I highly recommend this service. Thanks QeCAD...
