AS-BUILT FOR AUTODESK® REVIT®: CREATING EFFICIENCIES IN SCAN DATA EXTRACTION FOR BIM
FARO As-Built for Autodesk® Revit® provides quick and intuitive workflows for processing 3D laser scan data directly into Autodesk® Revit® using Revit® objects and BIM models. It is the perfect complement for Revit® users working with large point clouds and integrates seamlessly with the familiar Autodesk® Revit® user interface. It features a wide range of evaluation tools for 3D laser scan data with customized commands for modeling and detailing BIM elements.
*Retain the overview, guaranteed
A Section Manager enables users to crop point clouds inside Autodesk® Revit®, independent from using the current view and provides a more accurate orientation in part to hierarchical organized point cloud sections. FARO SCENE users can use the Planar-, Quick and 3D-View to work directly with FARO As-Built tools in Autodesk® Revit®. This makes orientation easier, increases the precision of processing and allows users to easily manage and navigate the scanner data.
*Improved Clash Detection
With improved Clash Detection, users are able to perform automated collision detection directly with point cloud data in AutoCAD® or Revit® which does not require switching software platforms e.g. Autodesk® Navisworks®. Users can easily verify if redesigning the planned construction project is needed, resulting in less rework and an accurate model.
*Create 3D models directly in Autodesk® Revit® Point Clouds
The FARO As-Built for Autodesk® Revit® plug-in features a wide range of 3D construction aids. Within the application, users can create 3D model lines and construction points using real 3D point snap in the point cloud, independently of Autodesk® Revit® work planes. Users can intersect model planes and thus create accurate intersection lines and intersection points as well as create fitted work planes directly in the point clouds.
*Save time and money with automated functionality
With FARO As-Built for Autodesk® Revit® walls, pipes and structural elements like beams and columns can be created very quickly and precisely. The wall types for different wall thicknesses are definied automatically. The wall alignment tool allows users to globally align, correct and fix extracted walls segments throughout an entire model. Additional functions include the automatic creation of deformed floor slabs based on floor irregularities as well as the creation of a ground surface (topo surface). Functions for modelling pipe runs from scan data enhance Autodesk® Revit’s abilities for capturing as-builts.
*Compare the model with reality
Surface analysis enables the comparison between the point cloud and the Autodesk® Revit® model. The results can be exported as profile lines or to databases. From the profile lines complex ground surface models can be created along with complex model components.
*Work with laser scanner data directly in the family editor
FARO As-Built enables 3D laser scanner data to be used directly in the Autodesk® Revit® Family Editor. Creating object specific families for doors, windows, columns or pipe accessories is simple and easy using point cloud regions, planar scan views and true ortho-photos.
