4D Tool - How to create dynamically linked 4D
Design the product (building, bridge, piping
etc.) in 3D with an IFC compliant object-oriented platform (for instance,
Archicad 6.5). Export the 3D geometry in IFC 2.0 format.
Create the assembly/construction schedule of the
product (with MS Project at the moment).
Link the 3D objects and corresponding tasks using
4D Linker provided by VTT
and Eurostep. Save this 4D
information as an IFC file.
Using the 4D Converter create vrml
model of the IFC objects.
Analyse the assembly/construction process using WebSTEP
tool through a standard web browser. Make necessary changes to the 3D
model and schedule. Update the changes semi-automatically using 4D Linker.
If the vr-model 'disappears', push
If the model is in weird position,
=> Now you are ready
to rumble... check the 4D model of a
