What is Scan to BIM?

Scan to BIM (Building Information Modeling) is a process for creating 3D models of existing structures using 3D laser scanning. By combining the latest in laser scanning technology with advanced software, Scan to BIM enables architects and engineers to produce detailed 3D models of existing buildings and structures, which can be used for analysis, planning, and restoration.

How does this scan technology work?

Using advanced technology in 3D scanning services, Scan to BIM collects millions of accurate measurements from an environment which can then be used to create detailed 3D models of physical objects or spaces. The process typically involves three steps: capturing raw data with a scanner; processing that data into useful information; and then converting it into a format suitable for use in BIM models.


What types of projects can Scan technology be used on?

Scan to BIM is suitable for any design or construction project that requires accurate 3D modelling and data analysis. It can be used on both existing structures, such as renovations, and new builds.


What are the benefits of utilizing this service for your next project?

Using Scan to BIM has many advantages over traditional surveying methods. It’s faster, more accurate and cost-effective than manual survey techniques, making it ideal for large scale jobs with tight deadlines. It also provides greater detail in the models created which can help identify potential issues during the design phase.


What type of files can you provide for a project?

Scan to BIM produces a wide range of file types, including: 3D point clouds; CAD files; STLs (stereolithography); mesh files (polygonal meshes); and vector files.


How long does it take to complete a scan-to-BIM project?

The time needed for this project will depend on the size and complexity of the environment being scanned as well as any additional tasks that need to be completed, such as data processing or model generation. Generally speaking, most projects are completed within two weeks or less.


Are there any additional software I need to use this service?

No, all you need is access to the DCMS Network platform. The process of scanning and modelling can be done entirely within the platform. If you wish to further edit or analyze models created with Scan to BIM, then additional software may be necessary.


Are there any limitations on the type of environment that can be scanned?

This process works best in an environment that is both open and well lit, as this helps ensure accuracy in measurements taken by the scanner. There are also some restrictions on certain materials which cannot be accurately scanned, such as glass or reflective surfaces.


Who will have access to my BIM models?

Only the users who have been granted access to the project will be able to view, edit or interact with the scans and 3D models created using Scan to BIM. All data is securely stored within DCMS Network and can only be accessed by authorized users.


What kind of support does DCMS Network offer for BIM projects?

DCMS Network has a dedicated team of experts who are on hand to provide guidance and technical support throughout the entire process, from start to finish. We are also available via email and telephone if there are any questions or queries you may have about your project.
