Design for Fabrication

Connect your design data from concept to fabrication on your building and infrastructure construction projects

available on cloud

Design for Fabrication, a Construction, Cities & Territories industry solution experience powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, creates a single source of truth for construction projects. Leveraging a collaborative, cloud-based, integrated BIM environment, Design for Fabrication seamlessly connects data from the design phase to shop drawings, enabling design models to become the basis for fabrication. This solution has proven to significantly reduce the waste and rework found in the traditional design and construction process, and yield big rewards for project owners and stakeholders.
