Does anyone have experience in 3D modeling from point clouds?
Just curious about the process that goes into this and also the software used. I was approached a few weeks ago by my boss about researching more into this topic. My company owns a Faro 3D laser scanner and are currently trying to get into the scan to BIM market.
I've been messing around with pointclouds in REVIT, just to get a feel for what we are trying to accomplish. I would really appreciate any help with this topic, or if anyone could point me in any direction as to where I should look for more information on this topic.
scan to bim of what?
does it need bim?
that silence you're hearing is probably people not wanting to share hard-won workfows.
I get kicked out of the club just saying that.
you owe me.
Alot of people are getting in this game and everyone I know whose in it taught themselves.
I would direct you to revitforum.org
screenshot your stuff and describe over all purposes, i'm down to learn anything on this.
there's a 3d Scanner out there made in Australia or NZ and then going to go to market in UK this year I think, can't remember name, but basically in say 20 minutes of walking you scan a couple thousand square feet of a building - all point clouds etc...
scan what to BIM? a detail you come across in a cool building? :D
connect the dots brainiacs...
olaf you douche you mean
fuck you Teeter!
My office has used a 3d laser scanning company to get existing conditions and site surveys. The point cloud data is in full color as well and is accurate to 3mm. It's really cool stuff.
