Building Information Manufacturing – Configurable BIM tools to drive efficient fabrication.

Company:

FUTURE JOINERY SYSTEMS LTD, FOURTH DIMENSION ROUTING LTD., MARK WRAY ARCHITECTS LIMITED, ROCKETMAKERS LIMITED

This project looks to implement systems and tools for designers to enable greater and easier access to digital fabrication processes for the manufacture of
joinery items in construction. The approach is applicable to joinery work at all stages of a build, from complex concrete formwork, timber frame cassettes,
general 1st and 2nd fix joinery, staircases, cabinetry and kitchens. These digital manufacturing processes become economically viable in any situation where
a high level of accuracy, superb finishing or complex geometry is required. The tools developed are intended to operate directly from CAD and BIM software.
They allow for a streamlined BIM to Manufacturing workflow that greatly improves the speed and effectiveness of information exchange, and by embracing
digital manufacturing processes, significantly improves the speed and efficiency of capententry work undertaken on site. The proposed system provides a
designer with a library of smart adaptable and configurable BIM objects and enable a designer not just to press print, but to press _**make**_.
