title Generating Schematic Diagrams of MEP Systems from 3D Building Information Models for Use in Conservation
source Emerging Experience in Past, Present and Future of Digital Architecture, Proceedings of the 20th International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2015) / Daegu 20-22 May 2015, pp. 293-302
summary In this paper, we propose a method of generating schematic diagrams from 3D models of mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems in order to represent this information in a more traditional, user-friendly format. It can be difficult to grasp the relationships between various MEP elements in building information models (BIM) because they are represented in a visually complex, three-dimensional manner. On the other hand, the relationships between building elements can be easily understood when using traditional schematic diagrams. First, sets of connected elements are extracted from a 3D model of MEP elements using their connection properties. Next, various elements of these systems are identified as nodes and their connections are represented as edges. Finally, these systems are displayed as a schematic diagram using element attribute information.
