We, at Indoor Intelligence, are developing the most affordable Revit add-in for pipe extraction. It's scheduled to be released in mid-March. It's only $9/month If you sign up at https://scantobim.xyz before the release. No credit card information is needed to sign up today. If you sign up after the release, price rises to $49/month. Here are the advantages of signing up today:
You will be invited to use it before anyone else.
You can set the future direction of the product based on your requirements.
Did I say, you'll get it at 80% discount?
The advantages of using a Revit add-in for pipe extraction are that:
You save time by avoiding moving data in and out of the intermediate feature extraction software.
It creates native pipe family in Revit so no need to worry about whether pipes will be imported correctly in Revit or not.
You are already familiar with Revit UI so there is no need to learn a new software.
If you have any questions, feel free to reply to this post or PM me.
Improving accuracy of pipe diameter for extremely small pipes
Extending the pipe along its full length
Creating Revit add-in using this algorithm
We are on track to release the pipe extraction from point cloud Revit add-in by mid-March. Early access subscribers get it for $9/mo for life. Sign up now at https://scantobim.xyz before price rises to $49/mo!
I have a quick question for people who are considering investing in Scan To BIM: Pipe recognition Revit add-in.
The algorithm we have developed for pipe recognition is working well for small pipes (less than 2" in diameter) as long as there is no other small pipe in its vicinity. But it doesn't give accurate results when you click on a small pipe when there are other small pipes running parallel to it. You can avoid this issue if you click on an area of pipe where there is no other small parallel pipe.
We have two options:
Launch the first release on schedule (mid-March) and tackle the issue of parallel small pipes in the second release. The algorithm already works for big pipes and even for small pipes (less than 2" in diameter), as long as you click on a region which does not have other small parallel pipes.
Work on improving the algorithm in the first release itself so that small pipes (less than 2" in diameter) are accurately recognized even if there are parallel small pipes in the region you have clicked. This will delay the launch of the add-in by about 3 weeks.
Which option do you prefer?
