Point cloud data has been growing intensively today in the case of construction industry. The technique is mainly the conversion of laser scans into 3D models. The architecture survey companies deal with the scanning part through different designs. After the scanning part, the registration and the conversion part is done by different BIM software experts.
How is the Point cloud data important for BIM services? Here are some of the benefits.
Saving Time in Surveying
This can save much time in surveying a building. Usually, a major amount of time is wasted in taking measurement of the building and scanning through different aspects of the building for renovation. But with the help of point cloud conversion, the time invested in scanning through the whole building is saved by as much as 40%. The images captured are produced in the form of 3D figures that helps in identifying the different angles and aspects of the building in a much convenient way.
Much Accurate Data
Another major benefit of making use of point cloud data is that it offers you with a much accurate data. Often in manual surveying the data collected is not accurate and hence a lot of mistakes can occur while renovation work is started. But through point data cloud, exact accurate data is gathered. This offers a proper working in the BIM Modeling services. Of course, with lesser amount of mistakes occurred, much lesser time, money, and effort is wasted.
Detailed analysis of the Building
When the scanned laser images are converted into BIM model, it can offer a wide range of analysis of the building. Earlier, the surveying of the building for renovation and analyzing those data used to take a lot of time. Also, a number of times, proper detailing was not possible in many of the cases. With the use of point data cloud, scanned images are converted into BIM that offers a wide range of data to the experts. It becomes much easier in this way to analyse the data and come to a proper conclusion.
Assessment of Design
The method has not made it easier for the scanning purpose but has also helped in saving a lot of time in the process. It is used mainly in renovation purpose because it offers a quick option in assessment of the design. With quick analyse and quick assessment of the data and the designs, it becomes much easier and convenient for the experts to start with the renovation work with much hurdles.
Technology in BIM services is fast evolving. The point data cloud is one such innovative option that has helped BIM services in offering quality results without wasting much time, capital, and effort in the projects.
