Digital Surveys have built up a strong reputation with a number of 3d laser scanning companies across the US & Canada who we now provide as-built CAD modelling services to.
Working with our Canadian partners Underhill Geomatics we assisted in converting thier scan data from a waste treatments works into a very accurate as built 3D CAD and Revit Model. As part of a refurb program the client required a very accurate asbuilt model which accurately reflected the as is conditions of all the steel work around the clarifiers.
As bandwidth and data transfer speeds increase and with the use of file sharing networks like box and dropbox, its never been easier to share 3D laser scan data. What once would have had to be shipped by hard drive and may have taken a week to arrive can now be sent as a download over night.
For this project Underhill shipped us a fully registered Faro .Fls project file and web share. Using the native point cloud support in Revit the data could be loaded in quickly allowing our modelling team to start straight away.
Once the model was completed Underhill were
able to issue a full set of 2d plans exported from the 3D Revit Model
