Scan to BIM
Scan to BIM, also called laser scanning or lasergrammetry, is a semi-automated survey method. This technology, which is still little known, makes it possible to carry out a millimetre reading. It is the essential tool for your Rehabilitation projects or for the delivery of a As-Built plan at the end of the construction site. The main advantages of scan to BIM are:
The Scan-to-BIM process
Scan To BIM is a process of using 3D scanning technology (Lasergrammetry) to create a model of the building and techniques from scan data. Scan To BIM can be used to digitise existing buildings or to capture the geometry and detailed information of a building under construction.
Scan To BIM is often used to obtain an accurate and up-to-date representation of the building, which can be used for various applications, such as maintenance management, renovation or modernisation of the building. It can also be used for the creation of digital models of existing buildings, for the planning (Scan to field) and the simulation of renovation or modification projects.
To carry out a Scan To BIM, it is necessary to digitise the building using 3D scanning technologies, such as laser scanning or photogrammetry. The scan data is then processed and converted into a 3D model, which can be used with BIM (building information modelling) software. The 3D model can also be enriched with detailed information on building elements such as materials, dimensions, technical characteristics and systems.
