To go from a 3D survey to a 2D or 3D plan, several steps are typically involved. Here's a general outline of the process:
Conduct the 3D Survey: Using advanced equipment like laser scanners, total stations or drones to capture precise measurements and data of existing sites or buildings. This may include collecting information about topography, dimensions, features, plus other relevant detail.
Data Processing: The collected survey data is processed and organised to create a usable dataset. This may involve cleaning up the data, removing outliers or errors and converting it into a suitable format for further use.
3D Plan Creation: To start, the survey data is imported into Autodesk Revit to build a 3D model. This software allows the BIM team to extrude the captured data into a 3D representation, incorporating accurate measurements and details. This results in a digital model that represents the surveyed area or building in three dimensions.
2D Plan Creation: Following the creation of a 3D Building Model, this data can be converted into a 2D format. Using the provided measurements and information, the SIAD Studio team creates 2D drawings representing the layout, dimensions and features of the surveyed area. This can include floor plans, elevations, sections and other necessary details.
Refinement and Annotation: Once the basic 2D or 3D plans are created, they can be refined by adding further details, annotations and labels to enhance clarity and comprehension. This may involve labelling rooms, adding dimensions, specifying materials or incorporating other relevant information as required by the project.
Review: The created plans are then reviewed by various stakeholders involved in the project, including architects, engineers or clients, for feedback and approval. Based on their input, further iterations and revisions may be made to ensure the plans accurately represent the surveyed area and meet the project requirements.
Final Documentation: Once the plans are finalised, they are typically compiled into a set of comprehensive and coordinated documents. These documents may include various drawings, schedules, notes and specifications necessary for construction, permitting or further project stages.
