Scan to BIM has become an integral part of capturing existing conditions for BIM projects. Creating a precise model allows confidence in your design and the ability to fabricate modules offsite and know they will fit when installed. We will discuss the different steps in the reality capture and model creation process in today's article. This model is an accurate representation of the existing conditions; you will sometimes hear the model referred to as a digital twin because of this. We will also examine some of the many uses of the reality capture process and how TPM may assist you in this process.
Many design firms struggle to find processes that can help increase their production and design. Setting standards, methods, organized content, and documented procedures in place is the most effective way to increase your production and design output. Without established procedures, your team may find themselves disrupting each other to locate, learn, or recreate content; this leads to a large amount of wasted time and energy. Once implemented within your company, best practice standards and policies positively impact your team's productivity by reducing needless tasks. These standards allow your company to improve designs, deliver more work and win more business at a more efficient rate.

The other benefit to digitizing documentation is the fact that it will make for simpler access for the parties who may need it in the future.
