IMAGINiT Technologies Updates Scan to BIM™ Software

New Rental Option Allows Companies to Leverage Scan to BIM on a Project Basis

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 30, 2014Rand 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 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:

  • It enables small firms and infrequent users of point clouds to increase their productivity and profitability by using the industry’s best software.
  • It provides a low cost and simple way to expense software back to a specific project.
  • It’s flexible, with options to add licenses or extend the time as required.

New Features 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® 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.

Live Online Presentation

The developers of IMAGINiT’s Scan to BIM are hosting a free webcast on February 5, 2014 at 10 AM and 2 PM (Eastern Time for North America).
