FARO As-Built for AutoCAD enables you to model as-built data across a variety of industry applications within your familiar AutoCAD design tools. It is solution for modeling of Captured Reality Data inside AutoCAD. You can combine it with all the well-known AutoCAD commands and it is very easy to learn if you are already an AutoCAD user.
FARO As-Built for AutoCAD replaced all products from FARO
PointSense product family: the industry specific PointSense
Building, PointSense Heritage, PointSense Plant and the industry
neutral PointSense Pro, plus it includes additional features
(functionality of other FARO AutoCAD plugins – PhoToPlan, TachyCAD,
DistToPlan, hylasFM, MonuMap). PointSense Building is intended for
generating 2D building plans (floor plans, sections and elevations)
from 3D laser scan data. PointSense Heritage combines laser
scanning and photogrammetry. It’s mainly meant for people working
in archeology and preservation of historical sites. PointSense
Plant is solution for intelligent plant design from laser scan data
Modeling of as-built data inside AutoCAD is a 3-step process:
At first on site you capture scan data from different positions with laser scanners. PointSense Heritage enables you to collect your Point Clouds not only with laser scanners but also with photo cameras.
In the office you can combine the individual scan positions into one common reference system and also pre-process scan data. You may use a pre-processing tool to clean and filter the raw scan data, like FARO SCENE.
At the end, you do post-processing which means interpretation and modelling of Point Clouds. It can be done in a design tool like AutoCAD or Revit, using plugins As-Built for AutoCAD or As-Built for Revit. To get the data into AutoCAD and As-Built for AutoCAD you may directly export RCP/RCS files from FARO SCENE or you can also export E57 from any other scanner software. Or you can use Autodesk ReCap in order to create RCP or RCS point cloud files from your scan data.
