Scan to BIM
BIM Pointcloud Geometry Extraction for BIM.
BIM has been gaining momentum recently in the AEC industry and focuses on implementing BIM to a new build project. However up to half of all construction work involves retrofitting an existing structure. The most efficient capture of 3D data currently is with a 3D laser scanner. However currently a parametric model is often required and needs to be generated from this point cloud data. This process is usually called ‘Scan-to-BIM’, however it is more correctly scan-to-parametric model as much of the semantics is added later. This laser scanning implementation is to gain an understanding of the challenges in the process used to generate the initial geometry for a Building Information Model.
