AI in construction: Will Hypar’s Text-to-BIM be a game changer?

We are aware of the capabilities of BIM (Building Information Modeling) and how it has enabled AEC firms to collaborate on the construction process with subject matter experts. In a broad sense, its established that BIM is a boon but it comes with its set of drawbacks. For example, BIM software’s are expensive and difficult to learn, and it also relies on heavy data sets.

But what if we tell you can generate several 3D models by simply typing your requirements? Enter- Hypar.io with Text-to-BIM capability. Hypar is web-based cloud platform and API that supports Industry Foundation Class (IFC) files and can generates hundreds, even thousands of 3D models based on design logic using text as input.

Did we pique you interest? Let us learn more about this!

Understanding Text-to-BIM

The AEC industry has greatly benefited from technological advancements. Tasks that were once time-consuming and labor-intensive are now completed with greater-speed and accuracy. Furthermore, integration of AI (Artificial Intelligence) into BIM (Building Information Modeling) greatly improved construction efficiency. But as we said, BIM relies on large data input.

This is where Text-to-BIM can be a game changer. It will not only help in generating 3D models quicker, but it can also help avoid clashes that would otherwise emerge when working in BIM. In their interview with AEC Magazine, Hypar.io founders Anthony Hauck and Ian Keough gave insights on this new technology.

 Ian Keough said “Why do clashes exist? Clashes exist because everyone sits in silos and they operate without interacting with each other. They don’t see what each other has been doing for a couple of weeks, until they merge the Revit models together. Then they find that these components run into other geometry. We need to make systems that can interoperate with each other and understand each other.”

An entire 3D BIM model generated through a text prompt will be free on clashes!

How does Text-to-BIM work?

The basic premise of Text-to-BIM is that you input your design requirements and the AI will execute code in Python and C# to cook up a 3D model, which will also include analytics data, based on the input parameters you define. Its BIM, but automated.

The 3D model generated is completely editable, meaning you can tweak the model till you arrive at a design you are satisfied with! Hypar also notes that the 3D BIM model generated through this technology can be exported to Revit.

Probable challenges to implementing Text-to-BIM

AI in construction is an interesting avenue to explore and text-to-BIM holds the promise a new world of possibilities for the AEC sector. But we must ask ourselves, is it ready for the real world?

The current AEC trend suggests that we are moving towards prefabrication and modular construction over conventional construction practices. This will help in decarbonizing construction and have significant sustainability benefits. With Text-to-BIM, we can automate the entire process of generated components for prefab. But to do that, we first need a thorough understanding of BIM, and we know how it is, there is still a lot of hesitancy when it comes to implementing BIM into operations!

The AEC industry is often criticized for slow transformation and technology adaption. Traditional methods are prioritized over new and un-trusted technologies, there is still a gap for BIM adoption. For now, Text-to-BIM is in its incubation stage. Only time will tell how things develop.
