How Scan to BIM is used in construction phase

Post by nguyennguyen »

I ask yourself that is there any difference between scan to bim for the design phase and construction phase? but I've not still found an answer and I get started with the article on how the scan to BIM is used in the construction phase. ... edium=post

I want to share it with all of you. Hope that it will be useful for you.

This is indeed an interesting viewpoint. In my experience it is kind of similar, though it also varies from case to case.

As a starting point in the pre-design stage, terrain, roads, building data and imagery were automatically generated using the Model Builder feature in Autodesk InfraWorks 360. The data was then converted into .dwg format and linked into Autodesk Revit for the performance of shadow and solar radiation studies. As some of the generated data seemed outdated or was not accurate enough, the incorporation of 3D laser scanning was deemed necessary.

Thus, the existing building, the inner court yard (the former cemetery) and the surrounding streets were scanned to form a reliable basis for further development of the project.

Following is a sample scan to BIM from one of my projects.
