IMAGINiT Releases Scan to BIM 2016


July 17, 2015

Rand Worldwide, a global leader in providing technology solutions to organizations with engineering design and information technology requirements, today announced that its IMAGINiT Technologies division has released Scan to BIM 2016, making this popular point cloud software product compatible with Autodesk Revit 2016. IMAGINiT has also introduced two new, time-saving Utilities for Revit, Dependent View Copy and Adjust Pipe.

“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,” says Tim Johnson, senior vice president, IMAGINiT Technologies. “Updating Scan to BIM to be compatible with Revit 2016 aids those focused on creating and validating their models in the latest software. Like all of IMAGINiT’s offerings, Scan to BIM and Utilities for Revit are built to automate time consuming or repetitive tasks. This allows design teams to harness the full power of Revit as well as the ability to focus higher level project goals.”

New Utilities for Revit 

With the addition of Dependent View Copy and Adjust Pipe, IMAGINiT now provides nineteen Utilities for Revit. These software applications run directly inside Revit and eliminate tedious manual work in eleven different design areas. These tools are available only in IMAGINiT Utilities for Revit 2016. 

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. 

Adjust Pipe solves the problem of joining segments of piping when they are out of alignment. A variety of options for adjusting pipes within Revit ensures they fit together easily.
