Pipe alignment tool added to Scan To BIM Revit add-in

Post by neeravbm »


We've just added the ability to align two pipes in Revit using our Scan To BIM add-in.

Problem description

Revit will not connect two pipes that are not in the same plane. Pipes extracted using the Scan To BIM Revit add-in will fit very well with the point cloud but they may not be exactly in the same plane. The new tool to align two pipes moves a pipe slightly so that they are in the same plane. Then you can connect them in Revit as you usually do.

If you are interested in testing it out, get a free 7-day trial from https://scantobim.xyz.

Below is a demo of how you can extract pipes from point cloud, align them and connect them in Revit using the Scan To BIM add-in. If you are already using pipe extraction and are only interested in seeing the demo of pipe alignment, then forward the video to 1:51 mins.
