New Features Enhance Productivity
The new features in Scan to BIM 2014.1 build upon the software’s successful record of enhancing workflows and improving productivity for teams taking advantage of point clouds. Watch Scan to BIM’s newest features in action in this series of short instructional videos.
Scan to BIM’s new Section Box Tool improves navigation through the point cloud so users can immediately focus on the area required and quickly complete the task. Users can toggle to (sic) point cloud ‘on/off’ with just one click and control the direction in which they step through the model based on designated distance and direction.
Scan to BIM’s new Create From CAD Pipe Tool allows large amounts of Revit piping to be built from Autodesk® AutoCAD®-based cylinders or pipe centerlines extracted from other programs and brought into the Revit model.
The new Quality Assurance Tool improves both productivity and quality by clearly showing users which entities in the point cloud have been quality assured, resulting in more accurate and reliable data for future use. Now users can step through each pipe or wall element and mark it as approved, make adjustments or move on to the next element.
Scan to BIM 2014.1 is available via a new short-term rental option that makes it accessible to any mechanical engineer, architect, scanning provider and plant designer whose projects could benefit from working with point clouds directly in Revit.
Scan to BIM’s new rental option provides three core benefits for teams performing point cloud conversion work on an occasional basis:
- It enables small firms and infrequent users of point clouds to increase their productivity and profitability by using the industry’s best software.
- It provides a low cost and simple way to expense software back to a specific project.
- It’s flexible, with options to add licenses or extend the time as required.
