Clash Check Simulation
Location: Windscale, UK
Nuvia required confirmation that a proposed new 4m flask design for the Windscale facility could be transported along narrow corridors within an existing building to the proposed installation position.
Offset deployed a laser scanner, survey equipment, cameras and targets to capture & process an accurate coloured point cloud of the areas of interest and potential clash points along the entire flask transport route.
The proposed design was provided to Offset as a CAD file and the geometry was animated through the point cloud generating an obstruction volume. The volume was checked against the point cloud for potential obstructions. Any clashes or near misses were fed back to the client, design revisions made and fed back to Offset for further checking, thereby ensuring remediation could be kept to a minimum and no requirement for the previous method of building a full size mock up.
