Application: Method and device for generating a digital model of a building (Patent ID: US20230409764A1)

The patent filed by Siemens AG describes a computer-implemented method for generating a digital building model. The method involves reading in an initial building model, extracting a creator indication, selecting a creator-specific object pattern library based on the creator indication, correlating object patterns with objects in the initial building model, assigning building element data records as annotations, and generating an annotated digital building model. The method also captures local correlations of objects and annotations, expands the creator-specific object pattern library, and logs storage in a blockchain. Additionally, the method involves outputting annotations positionally assigned to objects, scaling the models based on coordinate indications, and can be implemented using an apparatus or computer program product.

The method outlined in the patent allows for the efficient generation of annotated digital building models by utilizing creator-specific object pattern libraries and pattern recognition methods. By extracting creator indications and correlating object patterns with building elements, the process ensures accurate annotations and captures local correlations within the initial building model. The use of blockchain for storage, positional assignment of annotations, and scaling based on coordinate indications further enhance the accuracy and reliability of the generated digital building models. The patent also covers the implementation of the method through an apparatus and computer program product, providing a comprehensive solution for creating detailed and structured digital representations of buildings.
