FRAMINGHAM, MA, Oct 2, 2014 – Rand Worldwide, a global leader in providing technology solutions to organizations with engineering design and information technology requirements, announced that its IMAGINiT Technologies division released an updated version of its Scan to BIM software, Scan to BIM 2015.1. This latest release features automated piping tools specifically designed to save mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) engineers and scanning professionals time when identifying, placing and connecting pipes from a point cloud to a model created with Autodesk Revit software.
“The new Auto-Pipe Finder functionality in this point release dramatically reduces the amount of time it takes MEP engineers and scanning professionals to identify and connect pipes,” says Tim Johnson, senior vice president, IMAGINiT Technologies. “Traditionally this process saw Revit users having to identify and connect pipes individually, often repeating these tasks hundreds or thousands of times during a project. Scan to BIM 2015.1 has automated this entire process, dramatically shortening the amount of time it takes to create a model from point cloud data.”
Auto-Pipe Finder Productivity Enhancements
Auto-Pipe Finder offers wizard-like functionality that leads the user through a step-by-step process that scans a point cloud, creates pipe runs, identifies potential errors, and, through pipe adjustment tools, offers the ability to quickly correct them – all without leaving the Revit environment.
- Color codes pipes based on how close they are to ideal
- Turns scanned pipes into Revit pipe elements
- Ability to edit pipes for variables like insulation and connect individual pipes
