Extract pipes, round ducts and pipes from point cloud in Revit

Post by neeravbm » Wed Sep 26, 2018 7:58 am

HI all,

We just released the latest version of Scan To BIM Revit add-in that extracts pipes, round ducts and conduits from point cloud and places a native Revit family there. To download and install a free 30-day trial, go to https://scantobim.xyz.

Here are a few more features / bug fixes that are included in this release:

1) The add-in can now extract pipes, round ducts and conduits even if they are located along a wall. Earlier the algorithm used to get confused about which points belong to a wall and which points belong to pipe/duct/conduit. But no more!

2) Free trial period has been extended to 60 days for everyone who subscribes to our email newsletter. We still have 30 days free trial which you can avail without providing any personal information. But now you can extend your trial by 30 more days if you subscribe to our newsletter.

3) Earlier our add-in used to crash whenever Revit was opened using British English language. Didn't know that British English can have such an effect even on software! :p This bug has been fixed now.

4) Earlier round duct extraction used to crash in any language other than US English. This bug has been fixed now.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Yes, we are working on wall extraction currently.

Just curious, what do you find difficult about the current workflow of wall extraction of tracing a wall over point cloud in Floor plan view?

Duy, we have released the wall extraction feature in Scan To BIM Revit add-in. You can download the 30-day free trial from https://scantobim.xyz.

We prioritize development of new features based on what our customers what. Other than extraction of structural columns, which features do you need?

I really want to have the features of faro and cloudword, as I see on the ribbon you have both the plugin. i think you need to do is develop more optimal because your price is the best :)

I agree, but if you can let us know your priority, that helps us determine the order in which new features are needed to be developed. After all, we can't work on all the features at once. :)
