As-built user here. Between As-Built, Send2Revit, and older Virtusurv packages from FARO, we are set. We model buildings for Architectural and engineering usage. I've never been too keen on the way Leica prices their packages.

I hear EdgeWise is another alternative for Scan-to-BIM software.

@lisidro21 There are several factors to consider for your application..would it be fair to assume you are interested in going to Revit primarily? Also, since you are using the point cloud, I'm guessing the as-built conditions are important but keeping your model plumb and easily usable is important as well?

I work with ClearEdge3D for the EdgeWise modelling software that was mentioned by @sheartab. If you would like to learn more or discuss, I am happy to share how our users leverage the point cloud and EdgeWise as well as some pros and cons compared to Cloudworx and As-Built.

@lisibdro21 @melshy has already mentioned about our Scan To BIM Revit add-in (https://scantobim.xyz) in one of the replies. It's the fastest way to model pipes, round ducts, conduits and walls in Revit from a point cloud. You can download a 30-day free trial from our website. You can see video tutorials at https://scantobim.xyz/video-tutorials. If you need a demo, PM me.

Scan2BIM is okay. It has a lot of tools for modelling things in Revit. But most of those things can be modelled fairly easily in Revit anyway in my opinion. I find that having to use a single section box for limiting the point cloud in Revit is very tedious.

If you want faster loading of point clouds. And I mean really fast. Then have a look at Cloudworx with Jetstream. Slow loading of point clouds will become a thing of the past ;)

Cloudworx allows you to have multiple limit box's and sections when working with point clouds.
