exhibits at BIM Show Live 2013 Showcase will include the new LFM Server and LFM Operating Modes

AVEVA Group said Tuesday it is showcasing its LFM brand of software – turning laser scanned data into tagged, as-built 3D plant models for the BIM (building information modeling) market – at BIM Show Live 2013, taking place April 30-May 1 at the Park Plaza in London.

Cambridge, U.K.-based AVEVA acquired LFM Software from Zoller+Fröhlich (Z+F) in October 2011. The software is widely recognized for its ability to accept data from all brands of 3D laser scanners, and exporting to 3D integrated plant design systems, CAD and Review platforms.

The products showcased at BIM Show include: 

  • LFM Server – includes a completely re-implemented optional CAD link for BIM projects
  • LFM Operating Modes – integrates upfront laser scan data preparation tasks into simple workflow
  • LFM Software – helps to improve project collaboration, reduce time spent on site and minimize design risks

“We are neutral in respect to the devices a scan can be captured with, and neutral in respect to the CAD and modeling technologies the scans can be uploaded to,” said AVEVA’s Bruce Douglas. “Users have no restrictions in using LFM Software, ensuring they can select the best hardware and software for the job in hand.”
