Building Design

Category: Building, Construction
Works With: Revit, AutoCAD
Benefits of the solution
  • Data processing for various data capturing devices (laser scanner, drone, total station or mobile mapping system) to ensure full usability of the deliverables from your data capturing service provider.
  • Automatic but user controlled workflows ensure efficiency and traceability of the overall process
  • A wide variety of easy to use functions ensure you have the right toolset to process data from different functional parts of the building e.g. Piping/MEP Design, Floor/ Elevation plan, Steel construction or complement the As-Built models with additional s
  • Comparison of modeled CAD design with the measurement data to prove if the model quality is within the given tolerances
  • Quick, intuitive, automated but user controlled workflows to extract information from the measurement data directly within Autodesk® Revit® matching the constraints of the BIM design software
  • Tracking of model accuracy with tolerance checkup based on national (e.g. USIBD) or international standards or stakeholder’s specifications
  • Object creation inside the Autodesk® Revit® Family Editor based on laserscanning data to create as detailed and accurate as possible component catalogues matching the common LOD guidelines.
