3D assembly videos - floor ducts and floor sockets

Implemented as a 3D animation on behalf of the Hager Group

In order to show customers how floor ducts and floor sockets are correctly installed, the various layers of floor structures sometimes have to be brought in step by step. In reality, this is sometimes very complex and can only be reproduced with a great deal of effort. In 3D animations, on the other hand, such construction site scenes can be created very easily and subsequently adapted and changed again and again. For this reason, the use of 3D animated assembly videos is a simpler, cheaper and more professional solution.

3D Installation video - Install the floor socket cable outlet correctly

This latest "How-To" installation video explains how a new floor socket or cable outlet is installed in the screed. First, a plastic formwork body is screwed onto the floor. This is followed by the floor structure consisting of insulation, sound insulation and screed, in order to finally install the floor socket after laying the tiles. Sockets are wired, network sockets inserted and protected under a cover. The video also shows a wide variety of product variants, such as lids made of plastic, aluminum, with a hinged lid or with a waterproof screw lid.

Quality improvement in 3D animation video

After several installation videos of floor ducts were produced for the same customer in 2017, there were already 3D material and textures of floor structures. It was possible to build on these materials.

In this current video, however, the quality and the representation have been optimized again. This is also possible. Textures of sound insulation, styrofoam sheets and screed have been revised and improved and a newly revised lighting concept brings even more realism to the 3D animated videos.

Adaptation for the international market through further variants

After the video had been produced for the German market, other video variants for other countries and languages were derived from it. In a simple modification, only the superimposed texts were translated and exchanged in the video editing program.

For countries in which other sockets are standardized, the animation and rendering have also been adapted in places. In Switzerland, for example, FLF sockets are the standard. In the 3D animation, the German Schuko sockets were exchanged for FLF sockets. The respective scenes were re-rendered and a new video version was ready.

From the illustrated storyboard to the finished assembly video

At the beginning of the animation creation there is a coordination with the customer. What should be shown? Which assembly steps are important? What should be explained in detail? All of these questions flow into a first rough brief description of the process. An illustrated storyboard is then created on this basis. In this storyboard, all important assembly steps are already shown as they can be seen in the later animation. As a customer, you can see in advance what the later video will look like and, if necessary, incorporate correction requests.

Example - 3D installation video floor duct BKG

This assembly video shows how a floor duct is assembled on the raw concrete ceiling and leveled to the correct height. After the insulation and the screed have been applied, the floor covering is laid and sockets are installed in the duct. After the assembly video was completed, a second video version was created for the Swiss market. There, only the Schuko sockets were replaced by FLF sockets, which are standard in Switzerland.

3D installation video - screed-covered duct system

The screed-covered floor duct is installed directly on the raw ceiling. Junction and junction boxes are dowelled and connected to one another with ducts. Openings in the duct system are masked and screed poured. Different floor boxes with sockets can be built into the floor boxes using different mounting plates.
