IMAGINiT Technologies Updates Scan to BIM™ Software
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
Worldwide (OTCBB: RWWI), a global leader in providing technology
solutions to organizations with engineering design and information
technology requirements, announced that its IMAGINiT
Technologies division today released its new Scan
to BIM 2014.1 software. New features such as Section Box (News - Alert) Tool,
Create from CAD Tool and Quality Assurance Tool enhance the point cloud
functionality within Autodesk® Revit®. Scan to BIM
2014.1 is available via a new short-term rental option that makes it
accessible to any mechanical engineer, architect, scanning provider and
plant designer whose projects could benefit from working with point
clouds directly in Revit.
"Our customers enjoy the business benefits of Scan to BIM, but several
firms mentioned that they only needed Scan to BIM for certain projects,"
says Tim Johnson, senior vice president, IMAGINiT Technologies. "Based
on this feedback, we developed a new rental option that allows
organizations to experience the full power of Scan to BIM without
incurring the cost of a traditional perpetual license. Coupled with new
features that enhance modeling productivity, we think this update will
be the most popular version yet."
"We've been really happy using Scan to BIM on recent projects, and we're
very excited for the new features," added Scan to BIM customer Jason
Sturniolo, associate and CAD manager at RRMM Architects.
Scan to BIM's new rental option provides three core benefits for teams
performing point cloud conversion work on an occasional basis:

New Featres Enhance Productivity
The new features in Scan to BIM 2014.1 build upon the software's
successful record of enhancing workflows and improving productivity for
teams taking advantage of point clouds. Watch Scan to BIM's newest
features in action in this series
of short instructional videos.
Scan to BIM's new Section Box Tool improves navigation
through the point cloud so users can immediately focus on the area
required and quickly complete the task. Users can toggle to point cloud
'on/off' with just one click and control the direction in which they
step through the model based on designated distance and direction.
Scan to BIM's new Create From CAD Pipe Tool allows large
amounts of Revit piping to be built from Autodesk (News - Alert)® AutoCAD®-based
cylinders or pipe centerlines extracted from other programs and brought
into the Revit model.
The new Quality Assurance Tool improves both productivity
and quality by clearly showing users which entities in the point cloud
have been quality assured, resulting in more accurate and reliable data
for future use. Now users can step through each pipe or wall element and
mark it as approved, make adjustments or move on to the next element.
