3D BIM modelling

3D BIM modelling

We are offering professional cost-efficient 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) and - CAD drawing from the point clouds data after laser scanning, for the engineering, architecture, and construction companies, doing by qualified engineers from our Team from 0,5 USD per square meter!   Sometimes internally we call "3D Modeling" like "BIM modeling", or "Scan to BIM" and "Scan to CAD" services.

For Whom? 

3D modeling service is very popular by engineering and architecture bureaus, construction companies, and as well as our scanning partners (See How to become a Partner).  


What is the Problem? 

The main issue is still the high price and lack of bits of knowledge! Creating 3d model, based on laser scanning measurements is a very efficient and modern way of making plans and 2d-, 3d-drawings. This is because of the high capacity of the laser scanner — a about hundred thousand measurements per second. There are also several supplementary problems: 

  • The difference in education. Different education from Laser scanner operators. Historically they came to this new sphere with the surveyors' background. For proper 3d modeling, engineers must have a constructional or architectural education. 

  • Expertise lacks. Lack of education and expertise to do modeling yourself, and the absence of any full-time engineer or architect in the team. 

  • Costly. Cost too much because it takes too much time for highly paid external engineers. Usually by the end-customer retail price.  

  • Result issues. Sometimes, unfortunately, after a time you may face up with a problematic result, and inability to change it. 

  • Inexperienced freelancer. Impossibility of working with a freelancer or just not enough appropriate experience. 

  • Miscomprehension. Misunderstanding by some customers why they need a full 3D model, instead of "floor plans and a couple of cuts"? 


What is the Result? 

As the result, you will receive the link on the 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) in .IFC format and/or CAD drawings in .DWG format exactly before the due date. Other formats are also possible by agreement of the parties. To be absolutely sure, please request a Free Project Consultation 


What are Key Advantages and Uniqueness? 

  • Highly educated engineersOur Team consists of highly educated engineers and architects which are serving on daily duties dozens of internal and external projects. SCANENG has its own laser scanning partner network. 

  • Affordable price! Most of our own engineer's stuff based in eastern Europe, with an obviously lower cost per hour, with consistently high expertise. So you can pay a lot less than if you would pay your engineer for 1 hour, assuming full employment. No need to create full-time obliges.  

  • Quality management system. Three stages own quality management system allows us to deliver permanently strong results:  

    1. Checking data sources;  
    2. At least two engineers committed for your project;  
    3. Architect supervising during all stages. 
  • Universal .IFC format. Using .IFC format gives us the great advantage that our models will be compatible with all current and future customer software assets. 

  • Profitable Investment. When a customer has a 3D Model, he can make as many cuts and plans as he wants without spending a penny. The usual average price based on market experience which you save: 

    • one drawing is about 150-250 USD; 
    • one extra visit to the remote object from 900 USD. 
  • Cost effective. An average statistic that speaks itself for creating and using the 3D model: 

    • Up to 30%, less time spends on all projects, therefore better Total Cast of Ownership (TCO); 
    • Up 15% reducing risks of collisions. 
  • Other benefits. Our 3D models can be used as the basis for nearest future digital projects: 

    • VR/AR base for learning or communication projects; 
    • The great fundament for creating Digital twin of the Building or Factory.

We are offering professional Registration We are offering same day (!) professional cost-effective Registration of Base stations with less than 3 mm accuracy, mainly for Faro, as well as for Trimble and Leica scanners also, done by our highly experienced engineers, which letting avoid overlays, and save much time and money, especially on the right next step of 3D modeling. See our stations registrations offer.

Important information 

About .FLS Format: 

FARO is a 3D hardware and software company founded in 1981. They are a leading company in laser (LIDAR) scanning, which produces highly detailed point clouds. 

FARO scanners produce a proprietary FARO Laser Scan (.FLS) file containing raw point cloud data 

.FLS single files use the Microsoft Compound File format as a container for the raw scan data. Each file contains a "Main" file with all metadata and a folder called "Scans" with all Calibration, Parameters and Scan Data Streams. 

RAW Faro scan data saved by scanner to a memory card may be a group of files inside a .FLS folder. 

The ReCap format stores spatially indexed point cloud data, which can be loaded into various Autodesk applications to view, edit, and analyze point cloud geometries. 

About .RCP Format: 

The ReCap Writer produces two types of files: 

  • RCS files are scan files that contain the actual spatially indexed point cloud data. 

  • RCP files are project files that point to a number of RCS files and contain additional information such as scan regions, recorded distances, and annotations. 

ReCap supports RGB and intensity values for each point, and EPSG coordinate reference systems that can be specified per project. 

About .IFC Format: 

The Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) data model is intended to describe architectural, building and construction industry data.
