POINTSENSE FOR REVIT: EFFECTIVE PROCESSING OF 3D LASER SCANNER DATA IN REVIT®
The FARO PointSense for Revit software is designed for architects, engineers and general contractors who need to evaluate 3D laser scan data quickly and precisely directly inside Autodesk® Revit® to create intelligent BIM models. With customized functions for BIM model creation, alignment, editing and analysis you are able to comply with the complete workflow around the building lifecycle. PointSense permits a quick and intuitive workflow for the processing of even large point clouds and provides an excellent return of investment. You are able to efficiently model ground surfaces, walls, doors and windows, columns, beams and pillars, roofs or even pipe runs e.g. for use in MEP applications.
Combined with a FARO 3D Laser Scanner and FARO SCENE software, PointSense for Revit® forms the FARO BIM Ready Package for Revit® and the add-on is also part of the PointSense Suite.
POINTSENSE FOR REVIT®:
EFFECTIVE PROCESSING OF 3D LASER SCANNER DATA IN REVIT®
PointSense permits a quick and intuitive workflow for processing large point clouds in Revit® and creates architectural models used in BIM.
CREATE 3D-MODELS DIRECTLY FROM REVIT® POINT CLOUDS
PointSense for Revit® 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, independently of Revit® work planes. Users can intersect model planes and thus find exact intersection lines and intersection points as well as create fitted work planes directly in the point clouds.
COMPARE THE MODEL WITH REALITY
Surface analysis enables the comparison between the point cloud and the Revit® model. The results can be visualized as a heat map and be exported as profile lines or to databases. From the profile lines complex ground surface models can be created along with complex model components.
SAVE TIME AND MONEY WITH AUTOMATED FUNCTIONALITY
With PointSense for 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 automatically detected and family types are created with the correct sizes. The wall alignment tool allows users to globally align, correct and fix extracted walls segments throughout an entire model additional functions such as including 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 and structural elements from scan data enhance Revit’s abilities for capturing as-builts for use in MEP applications.
WORK WITH LASER SCANNER DATA DIRECTLY IN THE FAMILY EDITOR
PointSense enables the use of the 3D laser scanner data directly in the Revit® family editor. Point cloud regions, planar scan views or true ortho-photos allows the simple and easy creation of object specific families for doors, windows, columns or pipe accessories.
RETAIN THE OVERVIEW, GUARANTEED
A section manager allows the cropping of point clouds inside Revit® independent of the current view and provides a better orientation due hierarchically organized point cloud sections. FARO SCENE users can use the Planar, Quick and 3D-View to work directly with PointSense tools in Revit®. This makes orientation easier, increases the precision of your processing and allow users to easily manage and navigate the scanner data.
