CEO William Zahner predicts future facades will increase in complexity, including more dynamic and kinetic aspects, and requiring an integrated platform. Such a solution will “open up opportunities for the design and fabrication community to do some really amazing things.”
The Zahner team found that developing precise 3D models gives reassures to clients that their risk is mitigated.
In addition, they are better able to communicate openly, transparently with clients, contractors, architects, subcontractors throughout the project.
Because of its complexity and the amount of coordination required, the Chrysalis Amphitheater was the flagship project where Zahner used the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
The Chrysalis has no walls, so navigating around the model could have been a challenge. But with the cloud-based platform, they were able to point everyone to the same location for effective collaboration.
