Laser Scanning for Architecture Engineering & Construction

Extreme Measures specializes in 3D laser scanning for AEC applications. We use state-of-the-art LIDAR scanners capable of astonishing accuracy and detail. Every scan measures millions of discrete points and each point knows its precise XYZ position in space. Collectively, these points constitute a three dimensional "point cloud" that can be navigated, drafted, and modeled in popular CAD and BIM applications. Applied to architecture, a point cloud is nothing short of a dimensionally-correct, digital copy of the building itself.

Scan + BIM/CAD

Most of our clients take advantage of our in-house Scan-to-BIM and Scan-to-CAD services. We scan your project and use the resulting point cloud data to develop as-built BIM models and CAD drawings in Revit, Autocad and Archicad.

Scan Only

Just need the scans? No problem. For experienced clients who already know their way around point clouds, we can deliver laser scan data in a variety of popular industry formats including RCS/RCP, FLS/FWS, E57, LAS, PTS, and more.
