BricsCAD BIM: one year on

"At the event, Bricsys, Leica and HOK announced that they would be working together to have a crack at delivering on the promise of ‘Scan-to-BIM’. While Scan-to-BIM is talked about of a lot, it’s not actually possible without a lot of manual work in the ‘to’ part of the equation. De Keyser thinks that, with the BIMify AI, it should be possible to deliver something that is more useful than point clouds or meshes. The concept is to scan the exterior and interior of a building and then use almost the inverse of BIMify to allocate the voids between the scans to BIM components.

Internal floors and ceilings define the planes, and windows and doors could be identified through analysis of the images. There will obviously be issues with false ceilings and floors and other voids specifically in older buildings, but this process should drastically speed up the time from scanning to actually having a model and save designers the pain and living hell of working with point clouds in their BIM environments".
