Point Cloud to BIM and Efficient Project Management – an Insight

The technology of 3D scanning and converting it into a 3D model has its applications into various fields. It is helpful and used in the Building Industry, Process Industry and Digital Factory, for the purpose of Reverse Engineering, Ship Building, Documentation of accident and forensic scenes, Facility Management, etc. 

In relation with the Building Industry (AEC), scan to BIM is the process by which a Building Information 3D Model (BIM model) is created from scanned point cloud data to accurately represent the ‘As Built’ environment. The laser scan point cloud survey data is collected and registered by certified surveyors and it is this registered point cloud from which the BIM model is produced.
