A case study of Scan-to-BIM project for Riga Radio and TV Tower. The final deliverable was a 3D BIM model in Autodesk Revit, with a required LOD300 level of detail. Three different scanners were used for best results at different ranges. The new Undet developments for Revit and BIM workflow revealed.
Do you process massive point clouds every day? Do you strive for productivity and efficiency? What if you could save countless hours on as-built 2D and 3D documentation works? Would the result be: Reduced project timelines? More projects within the same time? Beating the competition? Gaining more profit? You name it and you can have it.
We decided to integrate UNDET in to our extensive range of data processing software to improve efficiency when working with point clouds. UNDET has a fantastic usability factor and has the ability to manage a high point count without performance issues. In short, UNDET is simple, practical and applicable.
The main value of Undet software is its efficiency and ease of use when working with point clouds in AutoCAD. Using Undet has helped us to improve our models and to reduce the time spent in creating them considerably, allowing us to reduce costs and improve on delivery times. The time spent in producing models is now typically 30% less than it was previously.
Tori Wilkinson, CAD Manager for Siteline Limited, relates how the surveying business based in Hampshire, England, has exploited Undet point cloud software to streamline its workflow. “We have used Undet for close to a year now and have found the improvements in our workflow to be significant. The interface is very user-friendly and highly intuitive and the software incredibly stable, allowing us to work with far larger data sets within the AutoCAD environment than was previously possible.”
The task was to produce floor plans, sections and elevations in a form of 2D *.dwg. The project consisted of 2120 inside and 230 outside scan locations (2350 scans and 316 GB on disk in total) and was collected over the course of two weeks with a FARO X330. Scans were registered in Scene 5.3 and output as E57 files.
Planning to participate in FARO 3D Documentation User Conference? Visit our Work Shop session and see how UNDET improves FARO users’ workflows from point cloud to smooth vector drawing. During the workshop we will present UNDET Software features and applications through an overview of four different and challenging user stories all utilizing FARO scanners.
Chartered Surveyor and one of the directors of Maltby Land Surveys Ltd. Andrew Maltby presents his overview of UNDET Toolbox V2.1 the latest software release that is helping smooth workflow from Point Cloud to Vector Drawing.
UNDET ToolBox V2 is the latest release of an application that has been developed over the course of the last three years by InfoEra Ltd, a company with a software history dating back to 1997. Hidden at the Geographical centre of Europe, this Lithuanian software developer has been quietly going about their business – until now that is with Maltby Surveys being the first UK Company to purchase Undet Unlimited Network Licence.
