    The Cleveland Browns’ $5 million, four-month renovation project vastly improves its Training and Administrative Complex in Berea, Ohio. The renovations are designed by the nationally recognized, integrated architecture, engineering, and technology design firm Westlake Reed Leskosky of Cleveland, Ohio, and recently recognized with an AIA Ohio 2014 Honor Award. The new workplace is a thoroughly modern space, respectful of the history and tradition of the Cleveland Browns yet forging a progressive identity for the team, via bold imagery, messaging, team branding and colors.

IMAGINiT Scan to BIM release launched at Autodesk University

OWINGS MILLS, MDDecember 1–Rand Worldwide, a global leader in providing technology solutions to organizations with engineering design and information technology requirements, today announced that its IMAGINiT Technologies division has released Scan to BIM 2016.1. Two new features will redefine the way designers and architects interact with point clouds in Autodesk Revit software and provide new functionality, eliminating time consuming modeling tasks.

“Always looking for innovative ways to deliver high value to architects and design engineers means that we’re continuously pushing the envelope of software development,” says Matt Mason, director, software development, IMAGINiT Technologies. “With the new Create Mesh functionality, we’ve moved in a direction that wasn’t previously possible with Revit by offering a way to quickly model arbitrary geometry. Now, for the first time, designers can build more complete and complex models without prohibitive constraints.”

IMAGINiT Scan to BIM customer, Eric Boehlke, Revit consultant at LandTech Inc. comments, “Scan to BIM software is essential when I am working with clients on projects that include tracing existing building conditions from point clouds in Revit. I use Scan to BIM’s features constantly during the modeling process.”

New functionality in Scan to BIM 2016.1:

 Create Mesh provides the ability to model complex items, such as gargoyles or church steeples, which were previously difficult and time consuming to create. With demand for applications for remodeling, renovation and historic preservation projects, this new tool:

  • Reduces the process of modelling intricate building elements from a matter of hours to minutes.
  • Offers the design team control over the degree of accuracy by clicking and moving a simple slider bar.

Auto-Find Walls eliminates the need to model walls one-at-a-time. By streamlining one of the most common tasks, a process that could be repeated as many as 1,000 times in a single model, Auto-Find Walls allows architects and designers to:

  • Select specific areas of a model, a building level or section of that level, and automatically differentiate walls from other surfaces in that area.
  • Automate the process of reviewing walls and confirm the wall type (i.e. brick, wallboard, etc.).
  • Convert detected walls into Revit elements with one click.

View short videos on Create Mesh and Auto-Find Walls to see the tools in action.

Live demonstrations

IMAGINiT industry experts will provide demonstrations of Scan to BIM 2016.1 at the Autodesk University (AU) IMAGINiT booth (#319).

For those not attending AU, IMAGINiT experts will host a free 60 minute webcast on December, 15 at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM (Eastern) to highlight the new features in Scan to BIM 2016.1. Attendance is free, but advanced registration is required.
