BIM and 3d modeling


The BIM (acronym of Building Information Modeling) is a design-optimized approach (Modeling) based on sharing and information exchange (Information), thanks to the support of software and IT tools, among the various actors that contribute to the design and realization of a building work (Building) definable: “shared use of digital representations of objects built to facilitate the design, construction and decision-making processes of reliable base” Role of BIM in the construction industry (through its actors are these Architects, Engineers, Surveyors, Surveyors, Builders, etc) is to support the communication, cooperation, simulation and improvement of a project along the complete life cycle of the built work, going beyond the mere construction phase and pushing until the final stages of life of the work

The 3D laser scanner surveying technique captures and represents geometric information in the form of three-dimensional point clouds, from which the 2D / 3D model can be extracted. At 3DScan we are able to create 3D BIM models starting from point clouds or 2D graphic representations provided by the customer.

Most of the 3D models we make are produced starting from a laser scanner survey realized by our teams with proprietary instrumentation, checked and verified by personnel specialized in the realization of BIM models.

One of the applications and variants of BIM is the Topographical BIM. When in certain cases the designer needs to contextualize his work in a 3D environment that responds to reality, 3DScan is able to satisfy these needs through the reconstruction in proportion of an urban landscape starting from laser scans integrated with topographic surveys. The final result consists of a 3D CAD model also proposed with a level of detail that is equal to the representation of the facades of the buildings


  • Analyze the spatial evolution of the project (3D)
  • Analyze the time evolution of the project and analysis of the construction phases, being able to perform interference analysis (clash-detection) even on different time plans (4D)
  • Analyze construction costs for financial estimates and for the management of payments during construction (5D)
  • Manage and schedule future maintenance interventions for ordinary or extraordinary management of the building
  • Manage the construction and collaboration between the different actors of the construction
