As we all know, CAD or BIM Outsourcing Services is an excellent option available today for construction companies, Architectural firms or any other company. Today survey companies also have started utilizing the outsourcing concept to avail cost effective conversion of their as built measurements to Auto-CAD or BIM Models. Survey companies today have diversified from taking manual measurements to using laser scan machines. These machines are used to scan the buildings deeply and later are converted into 3d BIM models. This process is known as Scan to BIM Modeling or Point cloud to BIM Conversion. Our BIM masters order the information from a large cluster of points and then integrate them to form “Registered scan” and then use them to get the as-built Model. Any kind of renovation or refurbishing of Building structures can be executed with the help of Point cloud modelling.
Why is outsourcing a good option in this particular service domain? Point cloud to BIM Modeling, is an intricate process. Since India has already gained a foot hold by establishing BIM outsourcing on a larger scale, upgrading to a new set of services came in naturally. There are many AEC companies in India who specialize in Scan to BIM Services, however finding a company which offers high quality output, optimistic pricing, quick turnaround time is very important. You also find many free-lancers, small companies with mediocre talent who advertise as big companies with exceptional skills and low hourly rates. Such companies may not deliver you good output and you may end up losing lot of money and client trust too.
Prior to outsourcing Scan to BIM Services, it is important to check and scrutinize the companies to which you are outsourcing your projects. It is important to check the following points prior to handing over your projects
- Total Industry experience
- Client references
- Examples and case studies of completed projects
- Hourly rates
- Technical infrastructure (Availibility of software, hardware configuration) etc.
You can also request the company to do a pilot run of the project (may be a part of project) to check the ability to do it.
Why is scan to BIM Modeling different from simple survey measurements?
Laser scans help in scanning the buildings and display even the deepest of pipes, vents, equipment’s, beams, columns etc. which manual measurements do not unfold. This helps in detailing the most intricate part of the building. The best part is that the scans can be directly linked and opened in the Revit software or any other BIM software for that matter.
