3D BIM Scanning

Scan To BIM Services

What are BIM Scanning Services?

Axis Mechanical Group utilizes innovative metrology technology, data, and onsite services to provide modeling solutions and large-scale 3D scanning. These 3D services can be used for digital surveying, architectural scanning, and modeling, building information management, and point cloud modeling. AMG is willing to scan anything necessary, no matter the scale/size, and works in any and all industries.

What Are The Applications For 3D Bim Scanning?

Our scan to BIM services can be applied to nearly any industrial worksite/job demand and commonly includes:

Aerospace equipment
Specialty electrical equipment
Large-scale architecture
Land or property surveying

The goal of AMG’s BIM 3D modeling services is to improve the overall efficiency of a project by enabling model enhancement and enrichment, improving cost margins, simulation, management, and more. By using a single digital model of data, both construction management and data extraction become much easier.

Accurate, reliable onsite data allows for an increase in quality management, precision, and overall efficiency and performance. Access to this data also helps to reduce errors, ensure that the end results meet strict requirements, and much more.

Capabilities & Solutions 

AMG has experience working in various industries and is willing to work with nearly any type of project. We provide solutions that are of the most benefit to you, depending on each application. Our measurements are accurate and provide information crucial to optimal efficiency and performance, all in the field or with portable CMM.

Architectural Scans 

Architectural scans create a point cloud that is typically used for quick, rough measurements or for modeling a building. This process can be used for nearly any structure, as long as it is stationary with a clean line of sight. These scans are of lower accuracy but also provide streamlined functions and optimal solutions for specific applications.

Construction Site Scans 

Construction site scans can be used for a variety of reasons, ranging from progress monitoring, digital surveys, and technical documentation. An advantage of construction site scans is that an engineer is typically able to create a model from the scan even before the building is complete. Scan to BIM services can be used as a quick and repeatable means of verifying site dimensions and builds, resulting in accurate, safe results.

Static Snapshots 

Static snapshots are used in areas such as aviation for insurance and reporting purposes. If an airplane has impact damage on the fuselage, for example, a static snapshot can be taken of the airplane’s exterior for insurance reasons. A 3D point cloud can be created of virtually any item as is.

Through scanning and recording, structures can be documented and indexed with a virtual timestamp locking in the status of a structure/item. Because of this, if a historic building were destroyed in a tornado or other natural disaster, a complete 3D scan could help restore the structure. Thus, the restoration of these buildings becomes a means of historic preservation.

Digital Surveys 

Digital surveying is also known as As-Built Capture and Modeling. AMG is capable of 3D surveying a building or doing a 3D digital survey on a piece of land for civil work. Digital surveys are good for giving accurate measurements of a property and its attributes. These types of surveys are becoming increasingly common among civil engineers and their work.

Point Clouds For Modeling And Design

ll of our BIM 3D modeling services and scans utilize point clouds, whether it be for metrology, quality inspection, visualization, or various other demands. Some point clouds are of lower accuracy but can still be used for a variety of reasons. Point clouds for modeling are able to provide quick, somewhat precise data. Different methods should be chosen based on application and the necessity of precision.

Building Information Management (BIM) 

Building information management creates 3D models of structures in order to reliably manage construction projects and maintain safety standards. Our innovative technology can provide scan to BIM services for those that need to optimize efficiency and overall performance.
