High Precision Point Cloud to BIM Services

At TrueCADD, our BIM modelling experts convert point cloud and laser survey data into data rich 3D BIM models using Autodesk Revit®. We specialized in compiling millions of data points and relevant images from the site to create detailed 3D BIM models for expansion of complex projects, restoration of heritage buildings to phased retrofitting projects.

Our point cloud to BIM cater to all types of architectural, structural and MEP elements and thereby help surveyors, architects, retailers and contractors stay profitable. Our scan to BIM modeling services enables coordination of existing structures with a new one or to create a topographic map of the data for retrofitting of facilities.

Whether you use Kubit, Leica CloudWorx or any other laser survey tool to collect point cloud data, we accept all type of inputs and process 3D point cloud data to deliver highly refined building information 3D models.

Point Cloud Scan to BIM Services FAQs

What is Scan-to-BIM?

Scan-to-BIM is a process of capturing the physical characteristics of a building or structure using 3D laser scanning technology and creating a digital representation in the form of a BIM model.

How does Scan-to-BIM work?

Scan-to-BIM involves using 3D laser scanners to capture precise measurements and geometric data of a structure. The collected point cloud data is then processed and converted into a BIM model using specialized software.

What are the benefits of Scan-to-BIM?

Some of the benefits of Scan-to-BIM include:

  • Accurate representation: Scan-to-BIM provides a highly accurate digital representation of existing structures, allowing for precise measurements and visualization.
  • Time and cost savings: The process eliminates the need for manual measurements and reduces errors, resulting in significant time and cost savings.
  • Clash detection: The BIM model created through Scan-to-BIM can be used for clash detection, identifying potential conflicts between new designs and existing structures.
  • Retrofitting and renovations: Scan-to-BIM models are helpful in planning and executing retrofitting or renovation projects by accurately assessing the existing conditions.
What types of data can be captured with Scan-to-BIM?

Scan-to-BIM can capture various types of data, including the building’s geometry, dimensions, surface textures, structural elements, and architectural details. It can also capture MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing) systems and other building components.

What software is used for Scan-to-BIM?

Several software applications are commonly used for Scan-to-BIM, such as Autodesk Revit, Bentley MicroStation, AECOsim, Trimble RealWorks, FARO SCENE, and Leica Cyclone. These software packages enable the processing and conversion of point cloud data into a BIM model.

What equipment is needed for Scan-to-BIM?

Laser scanning requires specialized equipment, including laser scanners (terrestrial or handheld), tripod stands, targets, and high-resolution digital cameras. The type of equipment used depends on the size and complexity of the project.

Can Scan-to-BIM be used for all types of buildings?

Yes, Scan-to-BIM can be used for various types of buildings, such as residential, commercial, industrial, and historical structures. It is especially valuable for complex buildings with intricate details, irregular shapes, or buildings undergoing renovations or additions.

Can Scan-to-BIM be used for existing structures?

Yes, Scan-to-BIM is particularly useful for existing structures, as it allows for accurate documentation and modeling of the as-built conditions. This information can be used for renovation projects, facility management, or historical preservation.

How accurate are the results obtained from Scan-to-BIM?

Laser scanning technology can capture measurements with high accuracy, often within a few millimeters. The accuracy of the final BIM model depends on various factors, including the quality of the equipment used, the scanning methodology, and the expertise of the professionals performing the scan-to-BIM process.

Inputs from which all scan machines can be used for creating models?

We can work on data received from the following scanning machines, and more:

  • Leica
  • Matterport
  • Trimble
  • Faro

We help you convert 3D cameras images, point cloud survey data into Revit models.
