Benefits of point cloud data for BIM services

11/03/2020

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 companies deal with the scanning part through different designs. After the scanning part, the registration and the conversion part is done by 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. But with the help of point cloud conversion, the time invested in scanning through the whole building can be reduced. The images captured are produced in the form of 3D models which helps in identifying different angles and aspects of the building.

• Accurate data
Another major benefit of using point cloud data is that you receive a much more accurate data. Often in manual surveying the information collected contains inaccuracies and hence a lot of mistakes can occur. But through point data cloud, exact error-free data is gathered. This offers a proper working in the BIM Modeling services.

• Detailed analysis of the building
After the conversion of scanned laser images into BIM model, a wide range of building analysis tools can be implemented. Without BIM, the process of building surveying used to take a lot of time. Also, proper detailing was not possible in many of the cases. With the use of point cloud data, it becomes much easier in this way to analyze data and come to a proper conclusion.

For the last couple of years, BIM services have been rapidly developing. The usage of point cloud data is one of the innovative options that have helped BIM services in offering extremely accurate results without wasting much time, capital and effort in the projects.
