Pericept | Booth 423
Pericept BIMtrace reality capture compares construction site and Building Information Model geometry for general contractors, trade contractors, engineers, architects, and other construction stakeholders. Identify site-model differences quickly and accurately without large data transfers, complex equipment, or cloud processing. Rather than generating a new model, BIMtrace overlays iPhone or iPad field images on an existing Autodesk® Navisworks® model for immediate, dimensionally-accurate comparison. Quickly communicate timely visual data between the field and VDC office, document as-built structure, identify quality control issues, improve workflow efficiency, and reduce technology costs by using the photogrammetric capability of the mobile devices already in the field. BIMtrace is the fastest, most user-friendly and cost-effective quantitative reality capture tool available today. Get the image data you need and Build to the BIM!
