FARO Streamlines As-Built to BIM Workflows with PointSense for Revit

BIM has become a standard in the planning, building and management of new facilities and Autodesk Revit® is one of the most established BIM programs for the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry. FARO’s latest software release accelerates and simplifies the analysis and design of laser scan data directly in Autodesk Revit®.

“PointSense is FARO’s first software release following our recent acquisition of kubit™ and upholds FARO’s strategy to be a leader in the AEC market,” stated Jay Freeland, FARO’s President and CEO. “As BIM continues to be an established requirement in the construction industry, we recognize the need to provide customers with a complete field to finish solution. PointSense enhances the architectural design process by simplifying the extraction of BIM models to point clouds. This is merely the beginning of FARO’s efforts to greatly enhance scan-to-BIM workflows.”

PointSense users will experience additional functionality compared to traditional native Autodesk Revit® tools previously available to the market. Some of the new features include: extraction and alignment of architectural walls, creation of Revit® family types such as doors, windows, beams, construction lines and ground models, real 3D snap-to-point clouds, plane detection and scaled ortho-image generation.

PointSense will be available to users beginning May 4th, 2015.
