Title: Learn How Non-Destructive Technology Makes Renovation Easier – A Scan to BIM Approach

A Scan to BIM Approach
Learn How Non-Destructive Technology Makes
Renovation Easier A Scan to BIM Approach
  • Visually impressive BIM models can be created for
    renovating any structure through non-destructive
    technologies like Scan to BIM.  These
    technologies can be applied to various trades
    like Architectural, Structural, and MEP modeling
    to build as-built drawings or 3D models for
    building structures. Scan to BIM is very commonly
    used to restore residential, commercial,
    government buildings, or any other residential
    setup. A scan to BIM is the most effective
    alternative to renovations that require
    re-construction without any demolition

How does Scan to BIM work?
  • Scan to BIM works on the principle of non-contact
    laser technology through Laser Scanning, 3D Point
    Cloud, Drone Mapping, Photogrammetry,  UAV
  • Surveying, and more. The technology to grasp
    physical space from the
  • ground or through aerial means, and convert into
    a digital 3D model is
  • called Scan to BIM. Teams using BIM can manage,
    coordinate, and share all the project information
    to all the stakeholders through this technology.
  • take laser scans of buildings, a laser scanner is
    placed inside the premise of the building and
    lasers are fired in every direction through
    various orientations that captures millions of
    data points, and that information is converted to
  • Building Information Modeling (BIM) using various
    software like Revit.

Why do you need an integrated model?
An integrated model provides real-world visuals
and information for all the stakeholders to make
well-informed decisions. These models provide
information on systems, networks, and 2D plans
that already exist. Use of a single integrated
model makes it easier for designers to
understand the complete building ecosystem,
whilst reducing change orders and mitigate
delays. This data can be delivered in various
formats on single software like Revit. Field
laser scanning can take a day, to a few days
depending on the complexity of the project. But,
if the project is small, then it can be over in a
day, and the models that need to be generated in
2D and 3D can be developed in a week as well.
Enterprises that provide BIM Services or  Scan-to-
BIM services need to provide realistic schedules
for any project.
What are the various Scan-to-BIM services?
There are various services that are provided
by Scan-to-BIM companies globally They are
  • Scan to Architecture
  • Point Cloud to Structural Modeling
  • Point Cloud to MEP BIM Modeling
  • Point Cloud to Revit
  • Scan to Construction

The scanning process can be bifurcated into
various steps
Surveys A survey is done and 3D survey points
are setup on site before the scanning process can
actually begin. This allows surveyors to achieve
accurate scanning to create information rich
models. Scanning Modeling Data collection
starts at this phase wherein various scanners are
used to achieve accurate 3D models using 3D
control markers. All the points collected in the
cloud makeup a point cloud with millions of
points, and this data can be stored on a
pen-drive through a USB interface on the scanner.
This data needs to be compared with survey
control so that professionals can highlight the
difference. When the data is verified, it needs
to be given to the modelers for data
representation and modeling.
 Exceptional benefits of Scan-to-BIM
  • Extreme collaboration, transparency and accuracy
  • Superior performance, reliable technology, and
    high quality modeling
  • Mitigate costs to a great extent
  • Sophisticated technology to create sustainable
  • No errors in 2D and 3D models through clash

Models garnered from Scan-to-BIM can be leveraged
by owners to create sustainable infrastructure
without any carbon footprint, as destroying a
structure for renovation can create
environmental problems. Using this technology to
design 3D models increases design-to-execution
speed, accuracy, productivity, efficiency, and
mitigates various building liabilities. To Know
