Fuzor Virtual Design Construction (VDC)  launches your project from design into construction. Fuzor VDC is designed for the construction professional whose daily tasks focus on buildability, validation and analysis, project scheduling, and overall project functionality. Fuzor VDC provides specialized 2D-3D connectivity and 4D scheduling capabilities while integrating Fuzor's VR capabilities and extensive host of productivity tools to help streamline the construction workflow process.

Can you effectively manage your 4D workflow?

Fuzor delivers our unique solutions to your 4D workflow challenges:


Leading-Edge Capabilities

Direct-to-Task Auto-Assignment

Assigning objects to 4D schedule tasks can be a time-consuming process. Leading practices involve applying custom fields to help group project components, then adding those groups to each task. The challenge faced is how to seamlessly apply objects directly into your 4D animation. Fuzor VDC's Combined Matrix System gives you that power with our Direct-to-Task Auto-Assignment capability. Take advantage of your custom parameters and automatically filter objects into all of your schedule tasks, streamlining your 4D workflow and minimizing production time.

Design-Schedule Interoperability

With the fast-paced nature of the AEC industry, can your 4D workflow keep up with both design and schedule changes? With Fuzor VDC, actively link together multiple disciplines and streamline your 4D productivity.

  • Bring in project file files from common authoring tools.
  • Import XML schedules from widely used scheduling software or create your own schedule from scratch.
  • quickly merge in both design and schedule changes without needing to reassign task objects.
  • Make field changes to your imported p6 schedule on the fly, then output that schedule back to Primavera and keep your schedulers in the loop.

2D Viewsheet Capability

3D and 4D project models aid in the validation process by conveying spatial relationships that 2D viewsheets cannot provide. That said, once validation is complete how do you convey your 3D findings to your teams in the field whose daily tasks are governed by the traditional 2D wFuzor VDCstruction's interactive 2D viewsheets provide the answer.

  • Run your validation tools and instantly display your 3D data in parallel in an easy-to-understand 2D format.
  • Manually select from existing 2D viewsheets or create your own custom 2D floor, ceiling and elevation views.
  • Set color overrides and change visibility options and watch your Fuzor 2D viewsheet respond instantly
  • Activate your 2D viewsheet, play or scrub through your 4D animation and watch as your viewsheet actively displays your progress.

2D / 3D Interoperability

Instantly view your 3D issues on an easy-to-read 2D view. Select objects and make adjustments from both the 2D viewsheet and your 3D view. Use your visibility options to filter out unnecessary objects and focus only on the applicable systems.

Combined Viewing with Validation and Analysis Tools

Making the connection between 3D validation and analysis results and 2D viewsheet data can be a taxing mental challenge. Fuzor VDC overcomes this challenge and does it in real time by combining our 2D viewsheet capabilities with our validation and analysis tools to quickly and clearly display your issues in 2D as you address them.

4D Construction Animation

4D animation is quickly becoming a staple of the construction industry, letting project stakeholders virtually experience the complete lifecycle of the construction process. That said, existing 4D creation methods can be cumbersome and time-consuming to do in-house. This often leads to companies outsourcing their 4D sequencing to third parties. But what if there was a way to quickly and simply create flexible adaptable 4D construction sequences all on your own?

With Fuzor, you can. Have a look and see how Fuzor VDC can simplify your 4D animation process.

Combined Matrix System

Objects routinely need to be sorted into project tasks using specific criteria such as Work Breakdown Schedules (WBS). The question is how to speed up object sorting and remove the need to manually add each object? Fuzor VDC's Combined Matrix System simplifies the process. Filter objects directly into your 4D tasks using existing project fields or custom search criteria, or tap into our Direct-to-Task Auto-Assignment capability and virtually automate 4D object assignment.

Document, Level, Category and Custom Parameter Searches

Separating out objects into 4D tasks is difficult enough on a single document, but what happens when you try applying 4D to a combined model? Fuzor VDC has the solution. Fuzor VDC's Combined Matrix System has the ability to assign items by document, level, category and custom search parameters, allowing users to associate objects with tasks without having to delve into each individual source document.

Construction Zoning

Project sites are often broken into construction zones to facilitate simultaneous or sequential build processes. Separating objects manually into these zones can be a tedious untertaking. Fuzor VDC saves you the hassle by letting you quickly establish custom created Construction Zones filters.

Construction Equipment

Representing the building process is only one part of 4D. Does your 4D model properly illustrate your job site's current and planned activity flow? With Fuzor VDC's fully articulated construction equipment, it can.

Vehicle and Equipment Placement and Pathing

Place vehicles and equipment and apply pathing to quickly and easily simulate job site traffic.

Add Equipment to Schedule

Once you've completed your animations, apply your newly added vehicles to their own 4D tasks to create a functional job site simulation.

Safety Equipment

Now that you have a fully active job site, does your site safety planning fit into your 4D workflow? Fuzor VDC provides the tools to make sure it does. Quickly prototype new safety plans as well as visually represent existing ones using our built-in equipment, then add them into your schedule using equipment tasks.

Fuzor also provides fast placement for site safety equipment letting you quickly path out and adjust fence lines, barriers and other safety equipment to block off hazard zones and create visual safety plans.

Splitting Geometry

Often times the design process does not accommodate the builder's needs, and large sections of the project end up being modelled as a single object. This makes splitting the object across multiple tasks difficult. With Split Geometry that is not an issue. Split large objects quickly and easily without needing to go back to your authoring tool.

Dismantle

Like pipes, floors and concrete slabs, large equipment is often modeled as a single object, making it difficult to simulate installation. Fuzor's Dismantle ability solves that problem, letting you separate complex objects into individual parts for easy installation.

4D VR-Ready Client Viewer

Once you have your complete 4D jobsite up and ready, how do you convey your proposed schedule to project owners and other stakeholders? The answer is Fuzor VDC's 4D VR-ready Cleint Viewer.

  • Actively navigate the project as you would in Fuzor with our completely self-contained executable viewer (does not require Fuzor installation to run).
  • Control your 4D animation with the viewer timeline controls.
  • Don your Oculus or HTC Vive gear and watch your project build around you in full VR.
