Scan-to-BIM: Creating the Fly-through
What happens when you combine powerful 3D scanning and imaging, cutting-edge architectural modeling, graphic design and animation software, and creativity?
You create a new way to illustrate reality for your clients and their stakeholders.
We were fortunate to work with Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) to deliver a perfectly blended product using our technical and creative services. When called upon to create a spatially accurate model and fly-through animation of an existing station and pedestrian bridge, we did the following:
- Scanned and acquired a colorized 3D point cloud of the station
- Ingested the point cloud into building information modeling (BIM) software
- Quickly converted it into a highly accurate model
- Animated the model for the final fly-through
Watch for yourself what can be achieved.
