How often have you started construction on a project only to realize that the design does not fit reality? A sewage pipe that is too close to an outer wall, increasing the chances that the pipe will freeze, or an electrical line cutting across steel beams. These situations happen more often than we might like to admit.

What if you could automatically identify clashes within your 3D models—before construction even started?

Your wish has been granted! SYNCHRO is now offering a 3D model clash workflow for the construction industry, allowing contractors and builders to quickly and efficiently detect and resolve clashes within their BIM models.

How Clash Detection with SYNCHRO Works

SYNCHRO’s 3D model clash workflow is powered by Bentley Systems’ digital twin technology, providing accuracy and precision. Using advanced algorithms, the workflow detects clashes within digital twin models and graphically highlights them, making it easy for contractors and builders to assign issues and RFIs back to design teams before they escalate.

The workflow also offers an array of advanced features, including the ability to create issues and track them through to resolution, as well as the option to create manual and automated suppression rules. Administrators can manage the workflow and its data directly within the viewer, ensuring that all team members have access to the most up-to-date information.
