NEW – simple BIM (sBIM)

A semi-automatic process to create simple parameterized BIM models quickly and easily.  The sBIM workflow accelerates the use of reality capture in space management and lease survey workflows.

Walls, windows and doors within the mesh are converted to simple BIM families without the need for a library of objects.  All editing takes place within Pointfuse itself. No plugins for third party software are required.

Mapped to the standardized IFC schema, Pointfuse sBIM exports 2D floor plans, 3D BIM models and PDF reports.  This brings comprehensive reporting and easy integration to existing facility management operations and systems.

NEW Streamlined Classification

The new streamlined workflow makes classification easy, using templates and shortcuts to ensure maximum efficiency. The ability to classify objects within Pointfuse, has had a huge impact on how as-built data is utilized within digital design workflows. Being able to quickly compare specific as-built objects with the design to run clash detection, reducing the number of false clashes being flagged.

IFC Mapping

IFC templates can be created and edited for specific applications like architectural, MEP and HVAC so that selected objects can be classified and mapped to ensure compatibility with BIM software.

New – Convert Larger Files, Faster

The new conversion engine uses multicore processing to manage and enable unlimited point cloud conversion to provide real scalability.

Reality Capture

Pointfuse bridges the gap between Reality Capture and digital design Reality capture allows the easy collection of ‘as-built’ or ‘as-is’ conditions that represents a snapshot of what’s ‘real’ versus the design. Pointfuse makes it easy to convert point cloud data generated from reality capture technology such as laserscanning and photogrammetry into 3D intelligent mesh models that can be used with digital design data and with visualization applications.

Segmented Mesh Model

Core to Pointfuse is the ability to convert points on the same plane into a series of separable meshes based on their geometry which we refer to as a Segmented Intelligent Mesh Model.
This automatic segmentation of the mesh into discrete, selectable surfaces, not only allows the user to identifying and classify objects based on their geometry, but also assigns unique identifiers to them.
Example: BIM project collaborators are getting access to ‘as-built’ objects as and when they need them – quickly, efficiently and accurately.

Small File Sizes

Pointfuse’s mesh models are intelligently optimized, reducing the working data size by a factor of up to 100x, making them easy to share with online 3D collaboration platforms, such as BIM 360, 3D Repo, Revitzo, Trimble Connect and ideal for visual rendering with visualization applications.

Optimized for BIM 360

Pointfuse, intelligent mesh models not only provide selectable geometry but are highly optimised, reducing the working data size a factor of up to 100x, making them significantly easier to use and share with online 3D collaboration portals, such as BIM 360, 3D Repo, Revitzo, Trimble Connect and Sketchfab, when compared to the original point cloud.   Visit the Autodesk BIM 360 page to find out more.
