Point Cloud (Scan to BIM) is a set of points that are put together in a 3D space. The integrity of those points is a representation of a surface or an object. That could be a facade, building, or interior of a space. Watch our Show reel Point Cloud Projects.
A special 3D Laser Scanner generates the Point Clouds. There is a big diversity of scanners. The Laser Scanners scan the surface or space by creating thousands of laser measurements. Then it is registering the collected data as a Point Cloud.
With that technology, the scanning could have up to 1 mm accuracy. That depends on the specifics of the machines. The different scanners are having different:
- Points density (amount of points they can generate);
- Level of accuracy;
