Architecture

The issue of “building redevelopment” is becoming increasingly important in the field of architecture.

Creating living accommodation equipped with modern standards but at affordable prices is one of the greatest challenges of our times.

The key to plannable and cost-saving refurbishment is exact data and plans of the existing buildings. With the help of the latest laser scanner measurement technology and our software, you create floor plans and sections from the comprehensive point cloud data quickly and easily.

With these data, you no longer miss a single detail and have current, exact, and usable documentation of buildings.

Applications

Benefits

  • Exact, end-to-end measurement

    With laser scanner data, no dimensions are ever forgotten again. Thanks to the software evaluation, greater accuracy is achieved than with measurements taken by hand.

  • Rapid creation of floor plans and sections

    Simple creation of vectorized 2D plan on the basis of orthofotos with the help of semi-automatic vectorization.

  • Comprehensive basis of data compatible with all CAD systems

    Even the largest point clouds from laser scanners can be processed and evaluated for all common CAD systems and also imported into them.

  • Rapid creation of a BIM model

    Special plug-ins for Autodesk Revit and Graphisoft ARCHICAD support the rapid creation of a BIM model on the basis of point cloud data.

  • A faster workflow means lower project costs

    The entire workflow from measurement to the creation of plans can be accelerated by up to 50%, thus saving time and reducing costs.

Software

PointCab Suite

PointCab Suite is the entry-level solution for the efficient processing of point clouds to create detailed 2D ground plans and façade views.

With the practical functions for measurement, the simple web export, and the alignment tools, getting started is child’s play.

If required, modules can be added to adapt the functionality of the software to your specific requirements.

PointCab 3DPro

PointCab 3DPro provides the full range of functions.

With these tools, the extraction of the most important information from large point clouds has never been so simple. Whether 2D or 3D functionality is used, PointCab enables an optimized workflow from the point cloud to the plan or 3D model.

With the possibility to connect PointCab directly to your CAD system via the 4CAD interface, BIM creation becomes child’s play (available for Revit & ARCHICAD). It goes without saying that the registration of terrestrial scans, georeferencing, and the combination of different point cloud data are included.

Our software provides the right solution for every use case and area of application: with the optional modules available, you configure the software according to your needs.

Plug-ins for Building Information Modeling

PointCab 4Revit

PointCab 4Revit is the solution for Autodesk Revit®.

The plug-in enables the creation of a 3D BIM model within a very short time.

PointCab 4BIMm

Our solution for Graphisoft ARCHICAD enables the evaluation of all laser scanner data and automatically generates floor plans and views in a few minutes.

With our plug-ins for Autodesk Revit® or Graphisoft ARCHICAD, you can accelerate your workflow by up to 50 %.
