3D mounting videos for building installation

Parapet ducts from the Hager Group implemented as 3D animation

The Animations-Maschine lets parapet ducts fly through the room and creates several 3D animated assembly videos for the area of energy supply and electronic installation in offices on behalf of the customer. The purposes of use can be very different. Either classic, normal parapet ducts that are "surface-mounted" on the wall, or device ducts that are integrated into the wall. The choice of materials also ranges from plastic and aluminum to sheet steel. Furthermore, different types of sockets are explained and how their assembly works in detail.

3D mounting video of front-locking sockets in the wall duct

This assembly video shows the installation of front-locking Tehalit sockets. These are quickly connected using plug-and-play and integrated into the wall duct. The sockets can be plugged together directly with common industrial plugs from e.g. Wago or Wieland, or wired using cables via integrated terminals.

3D mounting video sockets in the wall duct in flush-mounted inserts

Unlike with front-locking sockets, the wiring of the sockets is more complex here. The animation of wires is a challenge in terms of animation technology. Every single movement must be precisely coordinated in the 3D space so that the animation appears realistic.

Vorteil von 3D Animationen gegenüber realen Videos

The products of Tehalit GmbH are mainly intended for installation on or in the wall. For this reason, the use of 3D animated videos is of great advantage. With real videos, countless walls would have had to be created and components cut up. The use of 3D animation led to a large number of assembly videos at comparatively very low costs. CAD data of the products were imported into the Cinema 4D program, textured and animated.

3D model creation of special wire strippers

Due to the 100% specialization in the animation creation of technical products, almost all common tools exist as 3D models in the in-house database of the Animations-Maschine. Open the drawer, take out the 3D model from the respective tool and it can be used in the animation.

For this video, however, a very special wire stripper should be used that was not yet available as a 3D model. These were also not available from common suppliers of finished 3D models. Therefore, a product sample was obtained here which served as a template for the creation of 3D models. All dimensions were taken with a caliper and transferred to the 3D model with the help of a construction program.

3D mounting video of the BRS parapet duct made of sheet steel

The 3D mounting video explains the assembly of a sheet steel parapet duct, which is screwed onto the wall. At the beginning, the different product variants and colors are presented. In addition to assembly, the video also describes the correct equipotential bonding.

3D installation video of the BRA wall duct made of aluminum

The parapet channel is not only made of sheet steel, but also of aluminum. The assembly is almost identical. This mounting video could be derived from the previously created video of the sheet steel variant without any major effort.

3D mounting video of the integrated parapet trunking BKIS

The classic parapet duct can not only be screwed onto a wall, but can also be completely integrated into the wall. The 3D mounting video explains the mounting and construction of the integrated parapet duct, as well as the installation of the sockets and network technology.

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.
