Title: BIM Engineering US., L.L.C. – Top BIM services in the US


1
Things to know for better Point Cloud Scanning
and the realities of Point Cloud Modeling in the
AEC industry
  • The demand for 3D laser scanning continues to
    grow in the AEC industry.

2
The adoption of Point Cloud Scanning by
engineering firms for various new and existing
projects has shown significant time savings and
profits for owners and stakeholders. Designers
and contractors continue to see the value for its
ability to deliver exceptional accuracy and a
data-driven approach towards proactive project
management. The construction sector has
witnessed heavy pitfalls through the entire
lifecycle of the project and greater ones upon
completion as well. With Scan to BIM services,
owners and stakeholders can leverage clear
communication and visualization on what was
required and what has been built on-site. BIM has
proved to be a principal driver for the demand of
Point Cloud Modeling. Most of the states in the
US have seen a very high rate of adoption for
Building Information Modeling.

Thanks to modern BIM software like Revit,
designers and general contractors can evaluate
clashes through virtual coordination. Its always
client perception on how much the entire process
will cost. Its better not to tell them the cost,
but educate them about the entire process and the
kind of profits Point Cloud Scanning would yield
in the long run. The steps would include the
explanation of field work, brief introduction on
Point Clouds, analyzing the data, using point
cloud data in BIM software, building a 3D model
and the final process of 3D coordination. Huge
point clouds require BIM authoring software like
Autodesk Revit and Navisworks to use Point Cloud
data.

Point clouds generated by the scanners create
high-visualization for the purpose of reference
for onsite workers and professionals.
Point Cloud
These point clouds are a set of points in the 3D
coordinate system. The point cloud data needs to
be converted into software adaptable data through
direct, parametric modeling and mesh-based
modeling. How do you bring about Point Cloud data
to Point Cloud Modeling in BIM? Scanning is just
one part of the process it must be integrated
into the BIM workflow as well to support the
entire construction process. These 3D scans can
be used for Quality Assurance in partially built
infrastructure. Engineers and designers need
software like Revit and Navisworks to manage
point cloud data and provide Scan to BIM services
for clients and owners. In terms of Proactive
Project Management or QA, these point cloud scans
help general contractors and QA engineers to
actually go onsite and compare point-cloud data
against intended design.
3D Laser Scanning creates a raw data output in a
point cloud format.

Point Cloud
3D Laser Scanning creates a raw data output in a
point cloud format.
Point Cloud Modeling comprises of three crucial
components viz. Scanning and surveying,
registration, and the conversion of models to 3D
systems. This raw format is then converted to
various file formats viz.. pts, .rcs, etc. This
raw data can be accessed by BIM authoring
software like ArchiCAD, Revit, Navisworks, etc.

Whats the reason behind companies opting for
Point Cloud Scanning?
Bigger time savings on surveying
Scan to BIM services can save on time and cost
for surveying new and existing buildings. A
single Point Cloud technician can handle complex
projects with the help of good laser equipment,
and this can reduce surveying cost and efforts by
at least 35 in totality.

Whats the reason behind companies opting for
Point Cloud Scanning?
Precision results
It is highly imperative for owners and
stakeholders to know what has been built and what
are the actual requirements of the end-product or
deliverables. The accuracy of a Point Cloud
Scanning provides users with the power to analyze
models and a partially existing structure to make
sure all the elements are kept in place.
9
Whats the reason behind companies opting for
Point Cloud Scanning?
Easy Renovation
Design assessment for building renovations has
become extremely effective whilst using Scan to
BIM Services. For existing structures that need
renovation, but are occupied, 3D laser scanning
provides an easy solution to scan the entire
building without disrupting the lifestyle of
occupants inside the building or infrastructure.
New models can be designed as an extension of the
old design wherein old reference data can be
compared to check clashes or problems in the new
design.
10
Whats the reason behind companies opting for
Point Cloud Scanning?
Team Collaboration
Scan to BIM services are extremely useful in
close team collaboration wherein people from
various trades can assess the 3D model and
understand design flaws based on old designs and
the proposed design. BIM engineers can integrate
models from all the trades viz. Architecture,
Structure, MEP and FP and put it into a federated
model to identify clashes, threats, and design
faults in the building.
11
Whats the reason behind companies opting for
Point Cloud Scanning?
Reduced Costs
Point Cloud Modeling reduces overall construction
and surveying costs as legacy surveying methods
and technology had proved to be extremely
expensive elevating costs beyond normal margins
for owners and stakeholders. The most crucial
part of Scan to BIM services is its ability to
detect errors early on in the project lifecycle
that creates heavy project profits.
12
Final Words
Building Information Modeling has pushed the
limits of Point Cloud Scanning to another level
wherein it has become extremely simple for
designers, architects, general contractors,
owners and stakeholders to visualize every piece
of the puzzle with superior clarity to make
informed-decisions based on 3D models.
