Next Meeting: April 5th - 3D Laser Scanning & Revit BIM

Join us in welcoming our speakers on the topic of 3D Laser Scanning & Revit!

Presentation #1: Scan to BIM with "Scan to BIM": Working with point cloud data and Revit is not cloudy anymore!

Speaker: Andre Carvalho, BIMSolutions Inc., Toronto, ON

Summary: In reference to a local Ottawa project, Andre will be presenting about his experience with different point cloud solutions and how "Scan to BIM" definitely makes working with point clouds in Revit an easier task.

Bio: BIM specialist and implementation strategist at BIMSolutions Inc., Andre Carvalho has more than 16 years of experience in the AEC field, the last 10 years using Revit and the last 5 implementing BIM in large firms. Since 2006, BIMSolutions Inc. has been successfully helping AEC companies in Canada with BIM implementation, mentoring, content creation, as-built models and all their BIM needs.


Presentation #2: From 3D Laser Scanning to Revit: Processes, Products and Questions

Speaker: Matt Mason, Imaginit Technologies, US

Summary: With all of the work in renovation, retrofit, and adaptive re-use projects, there is a wave of interest in using 3D Laser Scanning to capture as-built conditions. 3D laser scanning provides compelling benefits in terms of accuracy, speed, and limiting site visits – but the biggest challenge has been the deliverable – everyone wants a Revit project. This presentation will cover a variety of topics around the state of the art – including:
- Up-front questions that you need to ask yourself and the scanning provider
- Recommended processes
- Tools and technologies, including the new “Scan to BIM” application for Revit.
Bio: Matt is the Director of Software Development at IMAGINiT Technologies (formerly Avatech Solutions). He has been working on software development in the CAD and Data Management world for 19 years. He has worked on both packaged software and company-specific software in the AEC, manufacturing, and facilities management industries. He has been developing software products and projects for Revit since version 8.1. Matt holds a B.S.E. in Aerospace Engineering from University of Michigan.
