ASSEMBLE + Point Cloud

Assemble Point Clouds allows users to compare the scanned point cloud data to the design and construction data for an improved QA/QC workflow. The point cloud data captured on the project can be easily shared via cloud through Assemble’s award winning cloud based platform Assemble Insight.

Improved QA/QC Workflow

By supporting point cloud data from integrated partners, Assemble Point Cloud empowers you to compare the point cloud data to the design and construction data in the cloud. Clashes are flagged, giving users the ability to to change the state of each clash identified for an improved QA/QC workflow. Having 3D design in the field allows you not only to see that there is a potential clash between installed equipment and other materials slated to be installed, it allows you to query the actual system in question providing a way to reduce mistakes

Improved Collaboration & Control

The cloud based platform allows project teams to collaborate on clashes in real-time. Project teams can check for clearance issues between two different systems and validate foundations for equipment before items are even brought to the job site.

Point Clouds and BIM Workflow Guide

Overlay as-built data on top of BIM and share it with all team members and owners – in a collaborative environment.

  1. To begin, define your use cases – common ones are listed below:
    1. Demolition
    2. Installation and Placement
    3. QA/QC
    4. Progress Tracking
  2. Next, obtain your data – there are two main ways to do this:
    1. Use your own equipment, either with tripod-based devices or handheld devices
      1. Tripods are more prevalent and are designed for bigger spaces; Scanners have 120-1000m range
      2. Handhelds are generally used for smaller rooms (e.g. mechanical room or closet) and have 10m range
    2. Hire a Scanning Service to come in and obtain your data; ensure that you have clearly specified your requirements for format, accuracy, and registration
  3. Finally, understand the opportunity to avoid converting the Point Cloud – use the intelligence of the Assemble Desktop Application to provide 3D context:
    1. Aid in recognizing shapes
    2. Tag them as objects and create point cloud component library
    3. Perform clash detection between CAD-to-CAD or Point Cloud-to-CAD
    4. Use animation tool to remove and move demolition objects
    5. Merge them with your current construction Building Information Model
