Point cloud scans converted to BIM model drive efficient renovation of underground railway tunnel in London, UK

HitechDigital is a leading BIM service provider specializing in Point cloud to BIM services, developing as-built Revit models and CAD drawings. We convert 3D laser scans captured by Matterport, Faro, Leica, Trimble, Truescan, 360 photos etc. (in .rcp, .rcs, .obj, .las etc.) into architectural, structural and MEPF 3D Revit models along with 2D CAD plans.

Our 3D point cloud to BIM service offerings span a wide range of retrofit and renovation projects including historical buildings, retail stores, restaurant chains, metro stations, commercial and residential buildings, among others. With a team of 200+ BIM experts, our company has successfully delivered hundreds of Scan to BIM projects spanning a total area of over 1 million+ square meters to clients across the USA, UK, Europe, Australia and 35 other countries.

As a certified Autodesk training partner, we command a ready pool of skilled BIM professionals. This empowers us to provide scalability and flexibility to seamlessly accommodate the demands of your projects. We employ proprietary and custom tools or macros to expedite Scan to BIM processes in Autodesk® Revit® and Recap® to deliver clash-free 3D models. Our Revit experts are skilled at filling in missing details using engineering assumptions and reference images, resulting in highly informative Revit 3D models.

Point Cloud to BIM Services.

We convert Point Cloud scan to Revit models for new construction, renovation or retrofit projects.

Our point cloud scan to BIM service offerings include:

  • Architectural BIM Models: For floors, ceilings, walls, furniture, doors, windows, skylights, stairs, ramps, escalators, handrails and guardrails, plumbing fixtures, etc.
  • Structural BIM Models: For elements like columns, beams, supports, roof, stairs, balustrades, parapet, lintels, etc.
  • MEPF BIM Models: For mechanical equipment (ductwork, supply and return vents etc.), electrical components (light fixtures, switch locations etc.) and plumbing components (piping, sprinklers, etc.)
  • FM-Ready Models: Creation of As-built models to enable seamless integration with FM tools.

point cloud to bim process.

Our Comprehensive Point Cloud to BIM Workflow. Excellence Delivered.



  • Define scope of work, LOD requirement, input and deliverable formats (building elements, non-geometric attributes etc.)
  • Agree on TAT, quality (tolerances), checklists and other project metrics
  • Define communication, control mechanisms, escalation protocol etc.

Modeling & QC

  • Study input point cloud files files (.RCS, .RCP, or other Point Cloud RAW Format); raise RFIs
  • Create models from scan data (model components as individual elements, host levels to corresponding components)
  • Tool-based as well as manual quality checks against benchmarks (integrity check​, geometry check​, visual check​, model coordination​) before final delivery
Modeling & Quality Checks

Project Monitoring

  • Daily Scrum calls to ensure project on track
  • Scheduled and real-time review and analysis of project status against KPIs and metrics
  • Pre-defined reporting cadence, monthly governance calls with client
  • Ongoing and 6-monthly client feedback and satisfaction surveys
Updates & Feedback

Continuous Improvement

  • Use Revit Automation (supported by APIs & Dynamo) to fll out parameters of Cobie, RIBA, FM, ILS, etc.
  • Post-project reviews to analyse lessons learned, successes & challenges, document best practices, and apply insights to future projects.
  • Culture of continuous learning and adaptation; encourage knowledge/experience sharing.

frequently asked questions.

What kind of input (file formats) do you accept for point cloud to BIM?

We work with multiple ASCII and Binary point cloud formats including .RCP, .RCS, .LAS, .XYZ, .OBJ, .PTX (Leica), .ASC, .FLS (Faro), .PCD (point cloud library), .PCG, .E57, .FBX, .PTX and other industry-accepted ones. We also convert raw scanned data with Autodesk ReCap to point cloud files, ensuring software compatibility. Our teams are highly skilled in file format conversion and management.

Are you able to work on output (scan data) delivered by scanning machines such as Faro, Leica, Matterport or Trimble?

Our team of 200+ BIM engineers are proficient in BIM software like Autodesk ReCap and others. They have a demonstrated track record in successfully processing, visualizing and converting point cloud data into 3D BIM models from a wide range of scanning machines including Faro, Leica, Matterport and Trimble.

Do your BIM services extend beyond creation of Revit model from point cloud scanned data; for instance, generating quantities from the model?

Apart from Point Cloud Scan to BIM services, our additional BIM services address project needs post creation of the model. These include generating quantities for cost estimation and procurement, integration for facility management, energy analysis, design coordination, and documentation. We also create digital twins for facility management.

Can you provide any reference for point cloud to BIM projects done for any surveyors in specific countries?

Yes, we have successfully delivered 1,000+ projects to clients in the USA, UK, Europe and 35 other countries. We would be glad to share references for point cloud to BIM projects done for clients in your geography.

How large a point cloud file size can you handle?

We are equipped to handle point cloud data files of up to 200GB, and we use case-specific strategies to manage these large datasets. Depending on context and requirements, we can employ chunking followed by processing and conversion and then merge results. We can also reduce file sizes by using techniques like decimation, filtering and compression where it does not affect the quality of final output.

What is the level of accuracy that you ensure in point cloud to Revit models?

The levels of accuracy of point cloud to Revit models depend on project requirements and complexities and are mutually agreed upon during discussions on accuracy and tolerances with clients. However, ideally, we maintain a tolerance level as low as +/- 5 to 10mm.
