The Importance of BIMBuilding Information Modeling (BIM) is a building design method that uses a database of coordinated, graphically rich, internally consistent, computable information in three-dimensional models for design, engineering, construction and facility management.

BIM will permanently change the AEC professions by 2015

Including universities, clients, design codes, contracts, insurance policies, global recruitment of staff, work process and many other aspects.

BIM bandwagon The nations largest architecture, engineering, and construction companies are on the BIM bandwagon in a big way

Making the BIMTruView of actual point cloud

Object Modeling from Point Cloud

Measure a large number of points on the surface of an object

Point clouds themselves are generally not directly usable in most 3D applications


Object Modeling from Point Cloud

Converted to triangle mesh triangle models, NURBS surface NURBS models, or CAD models

Uses include: clash detection, interferences, retro-fit, and process simulations etc.


Modeled object fit to cloud Fitting algorithms use parts tables based on published specifications

Including geometric data (e.g., dimensions), derived properties (e.g., surface area, mass), and nominal information for each standard "part".


Modeled object fit to point cloud

Standard tables include the AISC (American Institute of Steel Construction) for structural shapes


Model object metadata

Export model objects to ASCII / DXF / COE (Cyclone Object Exchange)Support - AutoCAD, MicroStation via Cyclone COE Data
