Description

With laser scanner point cloud data, engineers now have a way to visually assess a building site in 3D without even going there in person. It's the perfect reference for viewing the state of the building site, and it's also a great tool for checking if the project has been completed the way it was planned. But it really starts to shine when it gets converted into data-rich geometry in BIM tools like Revit. In this course, Making BIM Ready 3D Models from Point Clouds in Revit, you'll master the workflow for converting 3D laser scanner point clouds into BIM ready 3D models in Revit. First, you'll learn about setting up Revit for your scan to BIM conversion. Next you'll learn to navigate through laser scan erroneous data and model basic building elements from point cloud data. Finally, you'll learn about the best workflows for creating Revit families from laser scan data. By the end of this course, you'll know how to convert most of the objects captured with 3D laser scanners into data rich Revit objects. Software required: Revit 2017. Software required: Revit 2017.

Hi everyone, my name is Dejan Skenderovic and welcome to my course on making bim ready 3d models from point cloud data.I’m an architect and BIM enthusiast running a modeling service for architects and surveyors called archijoy.

Scan to bim is currently the go to workflow for any serious surveying work and it produces reliable data and 3d models which can be used in numerous fields of the building industry.

In this course, we are going to focus on the conversion of 3d laser scanning data into data rich models in Autodesk Revit modeling environment.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • Setting up Revit for your scan to BIM conversion
  • Navigating through laser scan erroneous data
  • Modeling of basic building elements from point cloud data
  • Workflows for creating revit families from laser scan data
By the end of this course, you’ll know how to convert most of the objects captured with 3d laser scanners into data rich Revit objects.

Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basics or working in Autodesk Revit.

From here, you should feel comfortable diving into building as builts with courses like:

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn about scan to BIM with making bim ready 3d models from point clouds course, here at Pluralsight.
