Extreme Measures specializes in 3D laser scanning for AEC applications. We use LIDAR scanners capable of astonishing accuracy and detail. Every scan measures millions of points and each point knows its precise XYZ position. 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.
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.
Most clients take advantage of our 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.
