3D HIGH DEFINITION SCANNING/BIM
Crux utilises the latest in Leica Geosystems high-definition scanning (HDS) technology, Autodesk BIM and a specialised workflow to better visualise the true as-built conditions of any project, facility or site.
By using this advanced technology of 3D laser scanning for land surveying, we are better able to understand the building conditions, and make better decisions.
Our high-definition scanning services create a complete 3D model from the existing building conditions, which ultimately translates into survey documents. In addition, 3D laser scanning can be used to create topographical mapping for land development, as-builts and building construction, providing a valuable extension to any project.
High-definition scanning also reduces safety concerns with the ability to safely capture accurate 3D data through its remote sensing technology, reducing the need to enter high-risk work areas.
Providing excellence and innovation for the building industry.
We use the latest technology so we can continue to provide our clients with the best quality survey data possible.
Our Leica P30 laser scanner and RCT360 are able to capture one million points per second to an accuracy of 2mm at 30m from the scanner and are able to scan almost any material or surface. Additionally, the scanners can capture high dynamic range photography which allows the collected point cloud to be accurately coloured, creating what is akin to a 3D photograph of the site. A full 360° dome scan can be completed in under two minutes which allows sites to be surveyed at a speed and level of detail that has previously not been possible.
The point cloud
The point cloud serves as a digital record of the site. We can provide this in a number of formats, including Leica LGS (free viewer), Autodesk’s ReCap Format (for use in Revit, 3ds Max and AutoCAD) and a number of others.
Point clouds can be loaded into Revit, Navisworks, AutoCAD or other CAD packages to serve as a reference for design. The point cloud can also be used to build a virtual model of the site to the exact specifications required for the task.
Building information modelling (BIM) - Revit models
Elevations, floor plans and reflected ceiling plan (in 2D and 3D)
Geometric information such as beam thicknesses and pipe diameters
Floor slab analysis
Make the as-built BIM model the cornerstone of your next design project.
The design and construction industry is already embracing building information modelling (BIM) which creates an interactive and quantitative ‘digital twin’ of real-world buildings and sites.
Our team of BIM modellers are specialised in transforming the matrix of survey-accurate point cloud data into 3D models.
Our BIM service is entirely tailored to your needs, with a variable level of detail and an interactive scope of works, which allows our clients to select exactly what they want, and don’t want, included in models to obtain the best value for money.
The outputs from the BIM model includes the model itself, 2D plans, elevations and sections as well as perspective views, renderings, flythroughs, shadow studies and view analysis.
