IMAGINiT Technologies Releases Scan to BIM™ 2013
Rand Worldwide (OTCBB:
RWWI), a global leader in providing technology solutions to
organizations with engineering design and information technology
requirements, today announced its IMAGINiT Technologies division has released its new Scan to BIM 2013
software. In addition to complete compatibility with the Autodesk
Revit 2013 software platform, this new software release offers key
enhancements designed to help effectively and efficiently manage point
clouds natively within Revit.
“We have not slowed our pace of innovation with Scan to BIM,
even though we were the first to offer the ability to work with point
clouds natively in Revit before point cloud capabilities in Revit even
existed,” says Bob Heeg, executive vice president, IMAGINiT Worldwide
Operations, IMAGINiT Technologies. “Continuing our dedication to adding
value to the ever-evolving design engineering process, means that our
teams must always stay one step ahead. The new features associated with
this latest release are a prime example of anticipating the needs of
our clients and what new features will bring the most value to them,
their team and their organization.”
Scan to BIM 2013 seamlessly integrates with all the Autodesk
Revit 2013 products –Autodesk Revit Architecture software, Autodesk
Revit Structure software and Autodesk Revit MEP software. This new
downloadable version includes features specifically designed to make
architects, engineers, contractors, and surveyors more efficient. While
there are many new important features, Scan to BIM still allows users
to work natively in Revit, without the need to go back and forth with
other programs. A short Scan to BIM video highlights the product’s unique features.
New feature highlights include:
Column recognition for any
vertical column, whether it’s round or rectangular, Scan to BIM 2013 now
quickly transforms imported data points into a specific column type.
Effortlessly creating geometry from the point cloud aids in easy and
accurate measurement and placement of architectural elements. Already
available for MEP elements such as pipes and ducts, this latest version
extends these time-saving features to any vertical column.
Arc wall generation is fast and
simple now that Scan to BIM 2013 can transform a set of points that
signify a curved wall into an accurate wall with rich data. Now both
straight and curved walls can be accurately and quickly created directly
from the point cloud inside of Revit.
Managing point clouds is another
new performance enhancing feature of Scan to BIM 2013. With one click,
users can quickly highlight a specific point cloud within Revit and
navigate within that point cloud while leaving all the other data
untouched. Focusing on a single point cloud not only increases software
performance, but also saves time by allowing users to quickly navigate
to the specific information they need.
Additional Scan to BIM 2013 features include: workflow-based
tools that aid in setting up and working with models; the ability to
find true dimensions by accurately measuring points, and; visualizing
accuracy by comparing the Revit model against the point cloud and more.
