Cloud-Conversion specialises in converting land and building survey data using BIM modelling and CAD mapping. We know how to create the right maps and models to guide construction industry, engineering, and architectural projects to successful completion. Cloud-Conversion provides the BIM services you need to safely and effectively complete work to PAS 1192 standards. We can also help you avoid needless errors and costs. Our team can convert your or our data into 2D or 3D BIM/CAD deliverables using the latest CAD and BIM software.
As a provider of Revit training courses throughout the UK for specialist BIM modelling, you can rest assured that your point cloud data will be in great hands with Cloud-Conversion’s BIM services.
What is BIM Modelling?
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an advanced form of intelligent 3D modelling. A BIM model precisely and accurately captures the layout and dimensions of an existing building.
Building Information Modelling can be used by architects, engineers, surveyors, and construction companies to redesign, remodel, and extend buildings. This is because 3D BIM models can easily visualise how proposed modifications will fit with and impact existing structures.
BIM technology can also be used to map out underground utilities that may affect the construction process. Utility mapping and detection help architects and engineers anticipate subsurface variables, consequently avoiding clashes with project design plans.
A Full Scan to BIM Service
Cloud-Conversion’s scan to BIM service accounts for each stage needed to produce industry-standard BIM models. We use high spec laser scanners on the existing structure you aim to modify. The scanner produces a geometric, 3D image comprising of a highly dense point cloud, which uses millions of connected points to quickly build accurate 3D images. This ensures your BIM results will, therefore, be of the highest accuracy. Overall, this form of modelling aids and informs your project proposal to positive effect.
Depending on your requirements, we can incorporate highly accurate digital terrain models, Structural steelwork and bracings, MEP elements and systems and facilities management information.
Scan to CAD: 2D and 3D Models
Cloud-Conversion can also convert laser scan data into 2D and 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) models. These models are useful for producing floor plans and visualising designs for elevations, sections, and more. 3D CAD models are more advanced than their 2D counterparts, making them particularly suited to complex architectural and engineering applications where reliability and safety are key.
Finding the correct surveying and modelling techniques can be crucial for the cost, timescale, and professional integrity of your project; the Cloud-Conversion team are here to consult and advise you, using over 30 years of combined industry experience to survey with knowledge and expertise.
