BIM Clash Detection

Clash detection is a crucial step in the BIM process, which involves combining multiple independent models from different engineering and design disciplines to form an integrated model. Although the concept of clash detection is not new, in the past, it was carried out on the actual construction site. However, constructing a better building would take time and money.
The BIM Clash Detection process during preconstruction ensures a seamless implementation once the project is started. Therefore, it is essential to identify and resolve any issues. Advanced 3D modeling decreases or eliminates issues brought on by conflicting or incompatible models from various experts during construction. Therefore, it’s reasonable to say that BIM clash detection is an amazing tool that helps every construction project save a fortune.

Types Of Clash Detection


Hard Clash

Hard Clash Geometrical problems. A hard clash occurs when two things move through one another or occupy the same space. The logical arrangement of the components and their null dynamics make it simple to identify a hard clash. Applying geometrical, semantic, and rule-based algorithms to the BIM object with embedded information allows for the detection of hard clashes.


Soft Clash

Soft Clash occurs when an element is not provided the spatial or geometric tolerance it needs or when its buffer zone is violated. If neglected, soft clashes can lead to maintenance issues and safety concerns. For instance, a short-circuit or circuit completion problem is always possible if a live wire crosses a plumbing line.


Workflow Clash

BIM-Tree offers superior clash detection services at reasonable prices to its clients. For the clash checks, we employ the risk-free model inspection technique. By using this technique, our clash detection specialists can lessen the number of modification orders issued during the building phase. Our clash management services are beneficial for complicated projects like hospitals that include a lot of equipment and require sophisticated connections. In addition, the software can ensure that the necessary gaps between conduits, wires, and pipes are maintained.
