If you are wondering why you should be capturing your as-built conditions with 3D imaging solutions to create your 3D models and 2D CAD documentation, just have a look at 3 reasons why . . .
Scan to BIM
With the use of 3D laser scanners, we capture the interior and exterior of the existing conditions in 3D and create a precise 3D Building Intelligent Model (BIM) and 2D CAD as-built documentation. The 3D capture is a valuable communication and risk management tool, providing quality control with measurable documentation throughout all phases of the construction process.
3D Laser Scanning
3D laser scanning captures spatial data by the use of laser light. The shape, position and spatial locations of objects are recorded by millions of points. The scanner’s ability to see everything in its line of sight and create a point cloud (a set of vertices in a 3D coordinate system, defined by X, Y, Z coordinates) has revolutionized spatial data collection.
Once scanned, the data is then registered, producing a 3D point cloud that can be imported into the BIM program (such as Revit) to create a precise, fully parametric 3D model of the existing condition. The point cloud can also be used to produce orthographic views as a reference for 2D CAD tracing. Customized deliverables can be exported, providing you with a foundation for the further development of your renovation, retrofit or rehabilitation project.
Example Case Studies exhibit the Scan to BIM advantage.
Your surveyed project provides you with multiple deliverable options:
- 3D Modeling/BIM
- 2D CAD
- Historic Preservation/Mitigation
- Event Staging/Projection Mapping
- Interference Detection
- Energy Analysis
- Reconstruction Documentation
- Facilities Management
Once your project has been surveyed, the Viewer delivers multiple benefits:
- Reduced site visits.
- Valuable communication and risk management tool.
- Remote data sharing.
- Quality control throughout all phases of the construction project.
