About the Workflow
This workflow pairs the power of 3D mobile mapping with our automated wall extraction software to deliver floor plans for large buildings with unprecedented efficiency.
The Gexcel HERON® wearable mobile laser scanner captures site conditions in accurate 3D while you walk. Combine it with the EdgeWise Building™ Revit plug-in to automate the floor-plan modeling process and speed up your workflow significantly.
Scan More in Less Time
HERON scans continuously as you walk, eliminating the time-consuming setups required for terrestrial scanning. Speed up the data-collection process and reduce your capture workflow times from days to minutes.
Reduce Registration & Data Processing Time
HERON’s advanced algorithms track its location as it moves, enabling a fast registration workflow anyone can perform. The Global Optimization tool ensures fast data processing and best-in-class global accuracy.
Visualize Changes in Real Time
HERON compares live scan data against previously captured conditions to highlight site changes as you walk. See variations displayed in red and use them to flag potential problem areas or clean noise caused by moving objects. Export the data in a variety of formats for use in EdgeWise or other applications.
Translate an As-Built Model to a Revit Model
The EdgeWise Building Revit plug-in offers powerful features for generating documentation-ready models. Redraw the geometry natively in Revit with total control over rationalization. Configure options for wall thickness or increments for aligning angled walls. Lock in accuracy by specifying maximum displacement for all rotations, and more.
