The SPAR3D Conference next week brings together a diverse group of 3D technologists. In preparation for that event, we wanted to demonstrate an example of autorouting and automodeling that tests geometric complexity and congestion. Here's what we came up with.
If you look at the top of the page, you'll find an image of a tug boat engine room. Within that image, you'll see a large diameter conduit that we've automodeled using GenMEP, our autorouting add-on to Autodesk Revit. The point cloud of this ship was imported into Revit but the complexity of the ship and engine room were not modeled. Using GenMEP, we identified a start point and an end point within the cloud and the conduit was automodeled without clashes.
