FARO releases new PointSense for Autodesk’s Revit building design software

FARO Technologies, Inc. announces the release of the newly designed
PointSense for Autodesk’s Revit building design software. FARO is the
world’s most trusted source for 3D measurement, imaging, and realisation

The new PointSense introduces breakthrough functionality to
significantly improve the evaluation and conversion of point cloud data to
Building Information Modelling (BIM), which has become a standard in the
planning, building and management of new facilities. Autodesk Revit is one
of the most established BIM programs for the Architecture, Engineering and
Construction (AEC) industry. FARO’s latest software release accelerates and
simplifies the analysis and design of laser scan data directly in Autodesk

FARO’s President and CEO, Jay Freeland explains that PointSense is
FARO’s first software release following their recent acquisition of kubit. With
BIM an established requirement in the construction industry, FARO recognises
the need to provide customers with a complete field-to-finish solution.

He adds that PointSense enhances the architectural design process by
simplifying the extraction of BIM models to point clouds.

PointSense users will experience additional functionality compared to
traditional native Autodesk Revit tools previously available in the
market. New features in the PointSense software include extraction and
alignment of architectural walls; creation of Revit family types such as
doors, windows, beams, construction lines and ground models; real 3D
snap-to-point clouds; plane detection; and scaled ortho-image generation.

PointSense will be available to users beginning 4 May 2015.
