Capture, Analyze and Distribute AEC Data Faster

AEC REALITY CAPTURE SOLUTION
Learn more

For AEC we can provide a number of services which assist workflow and visualisation throughout a project lifecycle. Streamline documentation, 3D scan as-builts, and collaborate remotely with ease from anywhere.

3D Scanning that fits your workflow.

As-Built creation

Capture existing conditions before beginning the design phase. Import the point cloud / .obj file directly into BIM software.

remote inspection

Save travel time with remote inspections and view project sites virtually.

create virtual lists

Annotate the 3D Matterport model with notes, links, photos, and videos.

Construction Progress

Document and share construction progress with owners and collaborators.

project turnover

Improve facilities management capabilities and customer service by sharing a full “digital twin” of the property with owners

PROJECT estimation

Speed-up subcontractor estimates by eliminating the need for site visits.

Benefits

Fast and More Complete than 3D laser scanning

We can capture 2D photography and 3D data from job sites, automatically stitching them into a complete, immersive 3D model of a real-world job site. Take this 3D model and annotate, share, and export the point cloud to Autodesk ReCap® or Revit®.

NO REGISTRATION MARKERS REQUIRED

Our 3D scanning process is push-button simple. No registration markers and no manual alignment required. Everything is automatic!

ACCURATE WITHIN 1%*

Scanning is not only quick but also accurate enough to generate point clouds and polygons for as-builts and construction documentation.

Jump start your as-builts with a 3D Model
QUICKLY SCAN CURRENT CONDITIONS

3D scanning as-builts has never been easier. No need to set up registration markers before you scan, and your point clouds are automatically registered in the cloud for one less step.

BE EFFICIENT, MEASURE WHILE OFFSITE

No need for return site visits when you have a complete 3D model on your computer. Your as-built engineers can reference the complete space throughout the design process, collecting virtual measurements whenever they need to. As built documentation has never been easier.

EXPORT POINT CLOUDS INTO AUTODESK® RECAP

You can easily export a registered, colored point cloud that is ready for Autodesk® ReCap. Use a point cloud as a real-world template to kickstart your as-built design process.

BIM: Faster building information modeling
REDUCE VIRTUAL DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION COSTS

Make the scan the first step in your BIM process. Use it to to visually analyze a property, export the registered point cloud into your BIM modeling software, and start modeling from existing conditions.

WIN MORE BIDS WITH BETTER DOCUMENTATION

Building owners want the construction of their buildings to be well documented. Provide them with superior construction documentation throughout the process. When you’re done, give them the files they need for long-term facilities management.

Keep your documentation costs low while still offering accurate, high-quality information.

GET THE POINT CLOUD AND MAKE MEASUREMENTS

Get the point cloud from Matterport, import into Recap or Revit, and then take as many measurements as you want. Measurements are accurate to within 1% of reality.

With a point cloud, you can eliminate return visits because you always have a digital copy from which you can measure. You can also take measurements that are difficult to get in real life like pipes, trusses, and beams in the ceiling.

Documentation Optimisation
3D CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTATION WITHOUT THE HEADACHE

With only a few simple scans, we can give you quick and effective milestone documentation. With both 2D photography and 3D data, it’s the best way to track key milestones and discover issues early.

Replace 1000s of photos
A single scanned space can replace thousands of traditional 2D photos. With the immersive 360º walkthrough, documentation is both engaging and enjoyable. You can even zoom in and read detailed labels.

For when you absolutely need 2D photos, they’re easy to download from the scan. You can also get reflected ceiling plan images and high resolution floorplan images for even richer documentation.

Measure, Annotate and Communicate Faster

Get stakeholders on the same page and give them the detail they need. Tag complicated areas with more information, such as MEP details beneath drywall. Highlight what’s most important with a Guided Tour.

Get the point cloud that accurately details current conditions and then export to Revit to compare with the original design.

Leverage for the long term
Finally, turn over your documentation to the building owner for long-term facilities management. The owner will be pleased to have this easy-to-use treasure trove of information for future maintenance and renovations.

With the Matterport camera, we eliminated the reliance on measuring
tapes and lasers, manual production of point clouds, and the need for return
site visits.

Key Reasons AEC INDUSTRY Use Us

+

CAD to BIM

Streamline design and BIM modeling processes with digital twin cloud data of site conditions.

AEC Software Integration

The Matter-port platform integrates seamlessly with popular AEC software solutions including – SketchUp, Revit, AutoCAD, and other BIM software.

SHARE Construction Progress

Document and share construction progress with owners and collaborators.

Instead of sending engineers and designers to the site, one local team member digitally captures the space in 3D and shares the digital twin with the entire team in order to keep the project moving forward.

Farbod Mehr

ARUP

“We’ve integrated this system into our day-to-day operations and our standard 6-Step Quality Process workflow. We can now capture construction conditions for documentation and as-built conditions as a single file and share that instead of managing 300,000+ individual photos.
