3D Modelling From Point Cloud Service

Once san data has been collected, the next stop is to turn it into a working 3D model. Whether we’ve carried out the scan for you or you’ve been given a 3D point cloud by a third-party, we will use the data to create an accurate and BIM compliant model. We’ll then send it straight to your chosen coordination software ensuring you can confidently bid for BIM contracts without any initial outlay on either technology or training.

Once scan data has been collected on site, Trimble’s Modelling from Point Cloud Service is what turns this precise rendering of as-built conditions into a working 3D model. BIM compliant and wholly accurate, this is then ready to export into your chosen 3D modelling environment for detailing and refinement in accordance with Level of Detail (LOD) project requirements.

 

What we offer

This service isn’t just for clients who’ve used our Scanning Service. It is also useful to anyone who has received a 3D point cloud from a third party as MEP contractors often do when asked to determine retrofit design and system impacts upon existing structures.

Furthermore, once the design process is complete, Trimble’s 3D Modelling from Point Cloud Service will send the scanned details of the as-built conditions, along with the new MEP systems that have been added, straight to the coordination software. Through the use of Tekla BIMsite, this ensures that there are no conflicts prior to fabrication.

Whether you have an in-house BIM team or have never worked from point cloud data before, Trimble MEP services can be instrumental in freeing-up your time and resources through model creation and ensure you can confidently bid for BIM contracts without any initial outlay on either technology or training.

Deliverables

  • Registration of Point Clouds (as needed)
  • Export Point Cloud to 3D model package for visual inspection against modeled components (as-built comparison to 3D model)
  • Modelling the Point Cloud’s specific MEP components and exporting these solid objects to 2D CAD or 3D design package for finish detailing activities
