Scan to BIM

I haven’t seen this posted anywhere else besides a tweet that Beau sent out the other day. This is too exciting to not be talked about.

This should help reduce the cost of laser scanning since previously you generally had to rely on the scanning company to convert the point cloud to a model in AutoCAD. I have not tried it yet so I can’t speak to it’s usability but I am excited to find a project to use it on.

The Scan to BIM software add-in takes the ordeal out of the process of getting 3D laser scanning data into Revit. It enables you to import point clouds directly into Revit, visualize them directly in Revit, and interact directly in Revit with automated recognition and placement of walls and openings, as well as pipes and ducts.

  1. David,
    Thanks for the mention, this is a great release from our team and a huge timesaver in being able to do this natively inside of the Revit platform!

    You can download a trial from the website:
    The trial is limited to the dataset provided and is fully functional within Revit 2011 (all flavors)

  2. No problem Beau, it looks great! See you at AU!
