Add-in connects reality capture to BIM models

April 26th, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

NavVis, a mobile indoor mapping, visualisation, and navigation company has announced a new add-in for Autodesk Revit. The add-in lets Revit users connect their BIM models to 360° immersive imagery and point clouds captured by the NavVis mobile mapping system. This add-in simplifies the process of creating and updating outdated BIM models to reflect the current state of the building. The company’s mobile mapping system makes it possible to scan the current state of large industrial and commercial properties and stream the data on any device. The data is then visualised in the company’s IndoorViewer browser-based software that streams the immersive panoramic images and point clouds. With the Revit add-in, the IndoorViewer can now be integrated with Revit BIM models, allowing for a side-by-side comparison of the BIM model and the scanned state of the building, remotely from a desktop. This lets users identify the changes that have been made since the model was created and speeds up the process of updating BIM models.
