Precision Partner update

The first stage of Precision Partner explores two parallel tracks: establishing a digital baseline, and reporting deviations between a baseline and a corresponding built element.  Project partner CITA is developing an automation tool which, from a small number of manual inputs, generates a 3D model of the element, a 3D model of the mold needed to cast that element, a set of 2D construction drawings as well as mold building instructions. This automation tool is being developed and tested on balcony-type elements. The second track is point cloud deviation reporting. Using scans taken on molds and elements, project partner TickCAD has generated deviation reports using state of the art software. A next step is to identify measures relevant to in-process feedback, and to explore modes for automation and visualization to support this feedback. The goal is to create a robust parametric pipeline in the next months.
