AUTOMATED SCAN-to-CAD PROCESSING

Because points cloud, generated by 3D digitization equipment, must be efficiently and adequately processed to allow an automatic Scan-to-BIM treatment or an integration in a computational modeling systems  

IN BRIEF

3D laser scanning is utilized for a variety of purposes such as scanning a building or a road as well as to obtain the measurements and pertinent information regarding the specific objects or buildings scanned. Laser scanning can benefit building retrofit, factory layout, road design, “as built“ verification, progress monitoring and infrastructure visualization. This is also categorized as “Scan to BIM” which refers to the fact that the site or the building is scanned and then transferred for the 3D modeling or producing information using the BIM platform. Recent publications confirm that a fully automated Scan-to-(CAD)BIM by commercial methods has yet to be realized to address a yet unmet need.

  • Kernelis Meshing treats digitized point clouds (as recorded by laser scanners, lidar, photogrammetry...) to generate 3D surfaces with controlled facets sizes.

  • Kernelis Meshing renders a non-voxelized environment. Hence, profile lines can be generated for structural analysis and assessment of reflecting waves is therefore achievable.

  • Kernelis Meshing allows a full automatic Scan-to-CAD (BIM) process and thus reduces substantially the resources needed for engineering projects.

  • Kernelis Meshing is rapid, and it can process point clouds in a real multi-threads routine that speeds up the time needed to treat large collections of data on a simple laptop (e.g. processing 10.5 million points to generate 86,000 facets takes approx. 5 seconds).

  • Kernelis Meshing has its own encoding binary system. Hence, access to data has its own primary protection against the non-users of the software and this also boosts the loading of the data into the system.
