Effective planning is critically important to architects, construction engineers and contractors in any type of construction project. 3D documentation at every stage, from initial design to final inspection, helps avoid costly rework errors.
Architectural practices, construction engineering companies and building contractors have all adopted FARO’s 3D laser scanners for 3D modeling and as-built documentation. Their projects range from simple house construction to inner city renovation and new office construction. From low to high rise, FARO has the right portable 3D solution for you.
FARO® offers a seamless solution and workflow for capturing existing as-builts efficiently and accurately in order to process data directly into deliverable CAD plans and BIM models using design software such as Autodesk® AutoCAD® and Revit®.
Capture comprehensive as-builts
As-built 3D data serves as the basis for architectural drawings in 2D and 3D CAD programs. FARO Laser Scanners digitize as-built conditions quickly, accurately and completely in full detail. Complex geometries, insufficient documentation and areas with limited access make 3D laser scanning the ideal method to collect complete measurements of buildings, structures or industrial facilities.
As-built data in AutoCAD® / Revit®
Evaluate the measurements of existing buildings where they are needed. Generate 2D plans and 3D BIM models directly into AutoCAD® and Revit® for further planning and design.
From Scan to BIM Models
Utilizing FARO hardware and software enables designers to be cost effective in delivering real world information into BIM models. Architects and construction engineers benefit by intuitive workflows for precise extraction of BIM elements such as ground surfaces, walls, pipes, roofs or stairs from point cloud data directly into Autodesk Revit®.
