What are scan to BIM Services?

by Tejjy Inc CEO

Building Information Modeling (BIM) experts are providing architectural, engineering and construction professionals a competent and cost-effective laser scan to BIM services. Experienced BIM engineers leverage several laser scan to BIM tools for converting point cloud and laser scan data into a comprehensive 3d BIM model. Competent scan to BIM processes facilitate in delivering numerous scans to BIM jobs across the globe. Several scan to BIM companies work with scan to BIM modeling services, including 3d BIM model creation from LOD 200 to LOD 400 stages. This is undertaken as per the point cloud scan to BIM specifications and as per BIM standards. 3d scan to BIM involves the practice of converting point cloud data into an intelligent 3d model. The point cloud data gets captured for making intelligent data-rich 3d models with comprehensive representation of a physical area for design, repair, and renovation.​ Proficient Revit scan to BIM modelers, having expertise in laser scan to BIM practices can provide the best scan to BIM services to construction clients.

Benefits of Point Cloud Scan to BIM Services

  • Checking feasibility of the construction projects

  • Managing facilities and assets for architectural, structural, and MEPFP services

  • Providing laser scan to BIM services for MEPFP contractors, designers, and consulting firms

  • Creating an accurate as-built model for multipurpose use

Point Cloud Scan to BIM Services:

  • 3D BIM Model Creation - High level 3D scan to BIM models are created by the BIM engineers for Architectural, Structural and MEP services for the sake of renovation and extension. The 3d scan to BIM modeling enhances data transparency,  streamlining communication for quick decision making at the time of as-built phase. High quality point cloud Revit models ensure that the Revit components are intelligently built with the practicality of serving the purpose. Practical product information is fed in the parametric Revit families or the performance models for the sake of performing calculation analysis and construction simulations.


  • As Built Drawing Preparation – BIM consultants also create as built drawing preparation from point cloud BIM model for the sake of planning, elevation & preparation of section sheets for the architectural, structural & MEP services. The as-built drawings from 3D BIM Model serves as a reference tool to facilitate future project planning for building extension, renovation & redevelopment from the laser scan point cloud scan to BIM data. All details about building erection, measurement, manufacture, materials and location are acquired from the As-Built Drawings to be used for solving disputes about insurance claims.


  • 4D BIM Construction Scheduling – Point Cloud Revit scan to BIM facilitates renovation work of old buildings for gaining momentum and creating interest among construction professionals. The 4d construction schedule or the construction sequencing is associated with the BIM model from point cloud data. This enables the construction professionals to click on a building object in the 4D environment and view tasks in the Gantt chart.


  • Facility Management with COBie Integration – Building Information Modeling facilitates AEC project stakeholders in organizing approved electronic submittals from point cloud scan to BIM modeling data at the time of renovation and extension through facility management. Contact records of construction projects are managed through accurate data for vital fields. BIM files, construction drawings as well as the PDFs are organized for easy access through secured server directories. BIM engineers follow the COBie (Construction Operations Building Information Exchange) process for asset management of facilities. They change the existing deliverable format from paper documents to an open international standard to eliminate waste and improve profitability. Revit scan to BIM process enables data export, dynamic zone management, facilitating element selection through the specification of types, families and exported elements. As a result of which, complete parametric mapping could be executed and maintained over data export from Revit to spreadsheet.

Software Supporting Laser Scan to BIM Process

Several software applications support point cloud laser scan to BIM process, enabling visualization and navigation of point cloud files. Further, by using the software applications, files are compressed, obtaining accurate dimensions for the BIM model. Some of these software platforms include:

  • True View, FLS Viewer, ReCap, Leica-JetStream-Viewer, etc.

Weigh up the benefits, solutions and software applications of point cloud scan to BIM and implement scan to BIM process for your construction.
