Scan to BIM

As-Build Your Project with Scan to BIM

DBM Vircon offers a complete range of solutions for transforming point cloud scan data into data rich 3D models across all sectors and industries. Utilizing our extensive background in 3D architectural, building services and heavy industry modeling and using a comprehensive suite of modeling techniques, DBM Vircon transforms point cloud scans of an existing asset into a fully featured digital model. This digital model can then be leveraged across design and planning, remediation works, visualization and asset management roles. Our experience, attention to detail and use of technology delivers our clients superior value and unrivalled quality when creating the digital as-built environment.

EXISTING CONDITION & UNDERGROUND SERVICES MODELING

Our expertise in maximizing the use of the automated tools delivers a superior quality output with increased precision, while also reducing manual modeling driving a savings of 30% to 70% of modeling time
DATA RICH DIGITAL ASSET SOLUTIONS

DATA RICH DIGITAL ASSET SOLUTIONS

Our technology allows you to compare reports and check accuracy and completeness between point cloud data and 3D design, which eliminates RFIs, rework and delays and saves money.
GEOMETRIC TOLERANCE CHECKING & REPORTING

GEOMETRIC TOLERANCE CHECKING & REPORTING

Through creating millimetre perfect 3D models from scan data, quality assurance is built into the project. The automated data also detects clashes and possible conflicts, allowing for early resolution.
AGREED LEVELS OF 3D GEOMETRIC DEVELOPMENT

ACCURATE MODELING & DATA EXTRACTION

Integrated models and data allow for ease of communication, collaboration and comprehension. 3D visualizations enable micro and macro perspectives which enables efficient decision-making.
Virtual Trial Assemblies

VIRTUAL TRIAL ASSEMBLIES

By reducing the potential for human error, time spent manually modeling and the need for rework, laser scanning helps to reduce timeframes and achieve projected schedules, pleasing stakeholders.
MULTI-DISCIPLINE INTEGRATION

MULTI-DISCIPLINE INTEGRATION

The reduced labor needed for creating 3D models with laser scanning reduces costs. The detailed data ensures industry standards are met and any errors or inconsistencies are caught early.

Scan to BIM Modeling – Delivery

DBM Vircon’s Approach

With extensive 3D modeling experience, our team offers complete solutions for the creation of virtual digital assets. We use several scanning partners and software solutions for the back modeling and geometric validation of design against the as-constructed form. These primarily include Revit, Advance Steel and Tekla for traditional back modeling, while utilizing a variety of industry leading software’s for the extraction, management and validation of various spatial data sets.

Working with the latest technologies and utilizing both automated and semi-automated feature extraction workflows, DBM Vircon can transform any point cloud scan of an existing asset into a digital model for a wide variety of applications.

Our specialized analysis software is also used to verify project fabrication and installation tolerances as well as provide reporting on complex virtual trial assemblies. This process can slash the time and costs associated with physical trial construction in the fabrication yard. These tools and processes are extremely efficient when ensuring conformity to project requirements are met.

Our Scan to BIM modeling system solutions form part of what is a complete suite of integrated, multi-disciplinary solutions, offered across all industries and sectors. Our collaborative, multi-platform approach ensures maximum collaboration and productivity.
