Pointfuse has launched a new toolkit specifically designed to make it easier to adopt laser scanning within space management, planning and utilization workflows.
Pointfuse Space Creator automates the conversion of features such as walls, doors and windows to BIM LOD 200, and is compatible with the latest mobile mapping systems that are being used for as-built and as-used surveys within the facilities management sector. The software converts the millions of individual measurements captured by laser scanning and photogrammetry into useable 3D models. With the launch of Space Creator, Pointfuse can now realize real time records for space utilization and optimization projects by deskilling and streamlining workflows, thus reducing project costs.
Pointfuse ‘Space Creator’ leverages the core functionality of Pointfuse – the segmented mesh model; automatically converting classified mesh models into ‘family’ groups, such as walls, floors, doors, windows, etc. for use with popular downstream BIM and FM software. Pointfuse Space Creator data can then be exported as IFC (Industry Foundation Class) parametrized objects while also automatically calculating quantities, areas and dimensions in an easy to read PDF building information report.
