The 3D-Honeycomb method create the actural frame structure for the building.
When preparing the 3D drawing, you make sure that all walls and internal structure are there in 3D, then the 3D-H structure are generated so each building compoment can be cut from various sheet materials.
You do not end up with a building structure with 20 different steel beam types being attached individually with bolts or rivets, and you don't end up with a steel beam structure, where each corner assembly need fitted with special fittings and extra bolts or particular welding.
There are only one material , sheet material that in a prepared assembly make an end to 20 different extrudes steel profiles asking each maby 10 different mashines to produce.
With architectural "sketches" you even find, that a lot of these can go directly to the manufactoring where the tradisional building methods work very different.
Reson is the direct link to production, that even with what I call a sketch, bring a result very close to the actural and real structure assembly.
Nice talking to you
