Prefabrication and automation in offsite construction requires building models to be rich in data. The generation of construction drawings, creation of a bill of materials and the application of fabricated information is required in the model. In wood construction for example, it requires modeling of accurate processing (precutting) and assembly of prefabricated items including tooling (e.g. nailing and milling operations). All this, including derived data in the form of CNC files, shop drawings, etc., needs to be accessible by all stakeholders - the builders, prefabricators and project managers. By combining Autodesk products and APIs, hsbcad has developed improved workflows to create and modify rich model content. Revit content is able to enrich cloud based BIM that drives CNC equipment and improves on site processes. This leads to increased efficiency and cost control for the complete construction process.Joint AU/Forge DevCon class

Dr. ir. Kris Riemslagh, PhD in mechanical engineering.I love programming and solving complex problems that have a geometrical side to it. Luckily I find lots of them in my job at hsbcad as a software architect. I am guiding a team of over a dozen software developers and engineers who create applications that help our customers realize their challenging projects. The sales and support team of hsbcad is able to deploy and they bring feedback of fantastic projects. We are dedicated to facilitate the use of off-site machining and automation of timber constructions. This has turned out really challenging and engaging for me. I know our solutions have assisted in the creation of incredible buildings, and hope that our customers will continue to create magnificent constructions with it.
