This week IMAGINiT Technologies, a division of Rand Worldwide, announced the 2016 version of their Scan to BIM software. The latest updates bring the software into full compatibility with Autodesk Revit 2016.
Tim Johnson, senior VP of IMAGINiT Technologies explained in a statement that “Reality capture continues to be a focus for many architectural, engineering and construction organizations and Scan to BIM plays an integral role in simplifying the creation of a model from scanned point clouds. Updating Scan to BIM to be compatible with Revit 2016 aids those focused on creating and validating their models in the latest software.”
IMAGINiT has also updated their Revit utilities for the 2016 installment. The first utility, called Dependent View Copy, “automates the creation of dependent views, such as different levels or floors in a building. Using the first floor as a basis, users can generate additional floors of multi-story buildings, saving many hours of tedious, repetitive work.”
The second utility is called Adjust Pipe. “Pipes in Revit can be finicky — if two segments are out of alignment by a tiny fraction of an inch, they cannot be joined together,” IMAGINiT notes. The Adjust Pipe utility offers a number of different tools to adjust pipes so they fit properly.
