About this app

Introduction

For professionals in the fields of surveying, architecture, building, and development, creating complex surfaces in a Building Information Modeling (BIM) project to match as-built conditions can be a time-consuming task. However, with the PointCloud to Surface Suite 2024 plugin, this process is streamlined, making it easier and more efficient to work with laser scan data captured onsite and imported into Autodesk Revit. This review explores the features and benefits of this plugin, which has been specifically designed to cater to the needs of as-built projects.

Efficient Point Cloud Mapping

The PointCloud to Surface Suite offers a range of powerful tools to enhance the workflow of professionals working on as-built projects. The Surface from Point Cloud Selection tool stands out, allowing users to draw a selection box around points of interest and map them as topography, floor, or roof elements. With the option to select build type and level for new elements, this tool provides the flexibility needed to accurately represent as-built conditions. Additionally, the section box feature enables specific filtering of points, resulting in precise additions to each new element.

Seamless Integration with Adaptive Points

The plugin's Surface from Adaptive Points tool takes advantage of adaptive points in Revit to create new topography, floor, or roof elements. By reading all adaptive points from the document, this tool seamlessly maps elements to these points, providing an efficient way to incorporate laser scan data into the project. Furthermore, the Add Adaptive Points to Existing Surface tool allows users to add adaptive points to an already existing topography, floor, or roof element, ensuring the accuracy and consistency of the model.

Enhanced Modeling Capabilities

With the Wall Tool and Model Lines tool, the PointCloud to Surface Suite enhances modeling capabilities by enabling professionals to mark out wall lines and lines with adaptive points that snap to the point cloud. The Wall Tool creates straight or curved walls aligned with the marked points, while the Model Lines tool generates straight or model lines to match the marked points. These features empower users to create accurate and detailed models that closely represent the as-built conditions.

Utilities and Exporters

Complementing the suite's modeling tools, the PointCloud to Surface Suite offers a set of utilities that simplify the workflow. Single-click buttons to hide/show point cloud instances, access graphics settings for point clouds, and clear all adaptive points from the document make managing the project more efficient. Additionally, the suite includes three exporters that allow users to write point data to commonly used external files, including PTS and CSV, as well as XYZ CSV from adaptive points. These exporters facilitate data sharing and collaboration with other software or team members.

Seamless Integration and Accessibility

The PointCloud to Surface Suite ensures seamless integration with Autodesk Revit by requiring the purchase to be made with the same Autodesk account used to log in to Revit. This ensures a secure and smooth experience without any compatibility issues. By aligning the purchase with the user's Autodesk account, the suite guarantees uninterrupted functionality within the Revit environment.
