Renovation was planned for a large building in downtown New York City, but because of a lack of modern blueprint or as-built documentation, new as-built drawings and models were required. The BLK2GO accurately captured the entire 5 story building, scanning 48,000 square feet (4,500 square meters) and 120 rooms in 90 minutes. The result was an accurate 3D point cloud of the entire interior of the building.

CAD Modeling

Scan to Plan:

2 Days

Modeling Software:

Revit

Modeling Process:

10 hours

Point Cloud Software:

Register360

An entire 3D model was created using the point cloud as a reference for all walls, doors and windows. The modeling process in Revit took approximately 10 hours; with this accurate BIM model, floorplan and elevation drawings can be easily extracted. The entire project from scan to plan for this 5-story building of 48,000 square feet (4,500 square meters) was completed in two days.
