The inclusion of point cloud support inside Autodesk® Revit® software means that documenting existing facilities is now easier than ever…hypothetically. With the advent of facilities management software and operations and maintenance databases reaching out to Building Information Modeling (BIM) for visualization and representation, the workflow seems obvious. Follow us through a real example of taking a building with no drawings from laser scan data to intelligent model, then to a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) database, and finally to facilities management tools.
- Push the Revit model export into facilities management software and tie it to a CMMS database
- Describe the limitations of the process and explain what to expect upon delivery from providers
- Work with laser scans in Revit to build a model
- Populate a Revit model with data for management downstream
