  • Converted Point Cloud data (.imp) into 3D Model (.dwg) using


  • Point Cloud Method - Economic & Fast
  • Used highly accurate scanners & specialized software to
    create a point cloud file
  • Generated parametric 3D Model to extract BOM
  • Utilized this 3D model to create As-Built drawings and BIM
