The PointSense Suite is a new product bundle of FARO‘s popular PointSense Plug‘ins for AutoCAD® and Revit®, that accelerates the evaluation of laser scan data significantly. It provides a complete set of powerful point cloud processing tools on one license. Utilizing the PointSense Suite allows service providers dealing with 3D documentation tasks in every business field of Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC).

Whether to model and detail BIM elements inside Revit®, such as ground surfaces, walls, doors, columns, roofs and stairs or to extract data such as 2D floor plans, pipe runs, steel beams, 3D models or image plans inside AutoCAD®, the PointSense Suite allows to create customized deliverables for any AEC construction application. Receiving all PointSense products in one package redefines your productivity and flexibility in processing FARO laser scan data as well as scans captured by 3rd party vendors.

Plug-Ins for AutoCAD® and Revit®

The PointSense Suite offers intelligent geometry extraction tools for modeling and analysis tools for real world QA/QC across Autodesk® AEC platforms. Deliverables, such as: floor plans, BIM models, plant components and image plans can be easily extracted in the Autodesk® platform of choice.

All-in-one package

The PointSense Suite bundles all well-known PointSense products for AutoCAD® and Revit® in one package: PointSense basic and Pro, PointSense Building, PointSense Heritage, PointSense Plant and PointSense for Revit.

Powerful tools for point cloud modeling & analysis

Accelerate point cloud processing with enhanced scan navigation, geometry extraction tools, intuitive sectioning, intelligent SmartSnaps and superior deformation analysis visualizations and reporting.

Intelligent industry tools

Create industry specific 2D and 3D results from as-built data according to the specific documentation task. Extract: 2D plans, 3D building elements, topo features, pipe and steel work, tanks, or generate new BIM Family objects.

Benefits

  • All-In-One solution for processing scan data in the familiar Autodesk® environment
  • Small investment compared to buying separate PointSense programs
  • Extraction of laser scan data according to different industry specifications by simple switch between software modules
  • Convenient software handling, as all software tools are stored on one license
