Though reality capture has been around for many years, it has only recently become easy enough for mainstream use in the AECO (architecture, engineering, construction, operations) industry. The most prevalent form of reality capture is achieved through 3D laser scanning. PrecisionPoint uses 3D laser scanning devices to record digital images of your project space by rapidly capturing real world conditions and reproducing them into very precise 3D point cloud models.
Virtual Project Viewer
PrecisionPoint’s Virtual Project Viewer (VPV) is a hosted subscription service that offers an enhanced cloud-based, as-built, 3D scan data management system. It also provides you with simple access to your 3D project documentation. This cloud-based service offers the power of fluid 3D viewing of 3D laser scan data within a simple and easy-to-use website for storing and sharing scanning data.
PrecisionPoint’s 3D Scan-to-BIM AEC solutions capture vital as-built facility and systems data that can be imported into software applications that translate 3D point clouds into BIM software object families. By making the up-front investment in reality capture before a renovation project, you get the advantage of designing around actual building conditions and drastically reducing expensive field changes.
UAS (Drone) Mapping Services
If you’re a general contractor, construction project manager, property owner, or civil engineer, PrecisionPoint’s UAS solutions address specific challenges for several types of applications, including construction planning and site logistics, vertical infrastructure inspection, and construction progress monitoring and asset management.
Final deliverables can include 2D orthophotos (.TIFF, .GEOTIFF, .JPG), 3D photorealistic models (.OBJ), and Point Clouds (.LAS, .RCP, .RCS). We also offer DSM and DTM elevation models (.SHP, .DXF), useful for drainage and terrain grading, and architectural modeling from point clouds in Revit (.RVT). and project access via Virtual Project Viewer.
