Undet for Revit

Point cloud extension that enriches and streamlines your Scan-to-BIM workflow

What can Undet for Revit do for you?


Undet is a simple yet powerful plug-in that enables modelers to produce accurate BIM deliverables based on 3D laser scan point clouds. It seamlessly integrates with Revit, leveraging the well-known system interface and supplementing it with high-performance point cloud tools. Undet significantly reduces the time it takes to process massive point clouds in Revit, and better visibility and control throughout the workflow result in more accurate models and less rework.

Undet for Revit

At Maltby Surveys we are currently using the Undet plugin suite across all of our CAD authoring platforms. This feature packed software is easy to use and quick to load, allowing extremely large data sets to be visualized and worked upon in a very fast and efficient manner. We have had Undet for a number of years now and it is used by all of our CAD/Revit Modellers on a daily basis providing a vital component in their modelling workflow, and, having used many point cloud tools in the past (Pointools, cloudworx, Recap etc) Undet is certainly the best we...

Undet for Revit plugin enables Revit point cloud users to experience better visibility, increased control, and performance. Thanks to the unique management algorithm of Undet point cloud, you can work with massive data sets without slowing down Revit itself. It’s an ideal solution for architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals who wants to improve SCAN2BIM workflow.

There are two ways to import point cloud data into Revit: You can use a native Revit point cloud import feature and attach Recap files into (*.RCP / *.RCS). Or you can use an advanced Undet point cloud plugin to import point clouds in Revit. This will allow you to expand the capabilities of point cloud management and increase productivity when dealing with massive point cloud data directly in Revit.

Undet, the Revit point cloud plug-in allowing you to effortlessly import point cloud files from a wide range of sources, including 3D laser scanners, UAVs, 3D sensors, and photogrammetry software, directly into Revit. With its advanced features, Undet makes it easy to work with various point cloud formats, including *.E57, *.FLS, *.RCP/RCS, *.PTX, *.ZFS, *.LAS, *.LAZ, *.PTS, *.PLY, *.DP, *.FPR, *.LSPROJ, *.FWS, *.CL3, *.CLR, *.RSP, and ASCII / NEZ (X,Y,Z/i/RGB), as well as custom ASCII / TXT file formats.

Point clouds in Revit can be used for a variety of purposes throughout the project life cycle for design, construction, operation, retrofits, and renovation projects:

  • Digitize the existing building or any structure, and make its 3D model (accurate as-built documentation).
  • Plan and design. Point clouds can be used as base information about existing conditions by providing detailed information for planning and designing new construction or infrastructure projects.
  • Visualize ideas and see how they will fit and affect the existing environment. Point clouds provide a realistic 3D representation of the scanned object or environment.
  • Carry out engineering assessments and measurements. You can compare your 3D model with a point cloud and quickly identify missed or inaccurate details.

Cutting the point cloud is not only possible, but it is also necessary when working with it. Nevertheless, you are using a very tiny point cloud, which does not need to be cropped, and everything is clearly visible in single point cloud image.

It is better to avoid point cloud moving, nevertheless, you use specialized tools to transform point cloud coordinates. In other cases, simply moving the point cloud can cause problems: make a lot of analysis, drawing and modeling errors, which will take a long time to correct.

Point cloud geometry cannot be edited, you can only slice and use different colouring modes to represent it.

The current version of Undet for Revit 2023 does not have tools to automate 3D point cloud modelling workflow.

Undet for Revit focused on providing unique management algorithms to create, edit and organize point cloud sections of massive point clouds and manage their visibility without slowing down Revit itself.

There are three main challenges:

  • Maintain high computer and software performance. Working with point clouds can be difficult due to their large size and complexity, and you might need special software such as Undet to handle them efficiently, especially in Revit.
  • To understand the point cloud and find what need in it. As you may know, point cloud represents a copy of the digital world, and when doing laser scanning, you are capturing everything you see: furniture, people, cars, equipment, absolutely everything available at that time. Therefore, sometimes, it takes more work to understand the 3D point cloud, especially for a new user.
  • The last challenge is digitizing point clouds into 3D BIM models. To do this, you first need to know the process, how it happens, and straightforward specialized tools to make it happen quickly and easily.

You don’t need a high end computer to handle the Undet software. However, there are some technical requirements you should be aware of to ensure optimal performance.

  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 & 11 (64-bit only)
  • CPU: 3.0 GHz or faster processor. Multiple CPUs or multicore CPUs recommended for point cloud processing
  • RAM: 16 GB or more recommended
  • GPU: We recommend using graphical processors like NVidia or AMD with a 3D Graphics accelerator card with OpenGL version 4.4 or newer, and GPU should be with at least 4 GB of VRAM
  • Hard Drive: SSD must be used for faster performance.

The Undet for Revit was created to provide an alternative workflow with large point cloud projects in Revit, instead of using heavy RCP files which slows down Revit itself, Undet provides a dedicated slice manager with everything you need to organize point cloud sections and manage their visibility.

Undet significantly reduces the time it takes to process massive point clouds in Revit, and helps you to increase your modelling accuracy.
