Pointknown captures buildings digitally. We also help firms register pointclouds they create from a host of machines and devices as well as draft and model the results. This assists owners and developers in understanding their buildings, and the AEC industry in streamlining and speeding their designs and production. We use some of the most advanced technologies available today from SLAM, to HDLS, to drones....yes drones to provide our clients with accurate information, documentation, and digital models. We can help survey your entire project, register your data or model or draft the data you have created.
From a home owner to a hotel chain, your project matters to us. We provide floor plans, elevations, sections, simple BIM to fully detailed Revit models. We deliver our files in industry standard formats, including PDF for anyone to review.
We utilize a variety of tools based on the type of project.
SLAM ( Simultaneous Localization and Mapping ). This is a handheld portable scanner that excels at mobile and rapid data acquisition.
HDLS (High Definition Laser Scanning). These machines are based on tripods, create denser and a more granular level of detail.
Drone (Photogrammetry / 3D Mesh) we create multiple grids over a building using high definition cameras that capture pictures and depth of field. This allows us to export a color photo 3D mesh that we can use for modeling and documentation.
Your project and needs is what drives the technology road map.
Creating the data is now the easier part. Merging multiple files, combining files from different machines, that's one trick, drafting and modeling the results that's another one. Sometimes it can feel like your trying to juggle water.
We have years of experience investigating, processing and modeling from point clouds, SLAM devices and HDLS data. Quality Control and producing documentation and models that can be easily digested by our clients allows you to hit the ground running.
If you need an extra hand in creating a unified data set or modeling or drafting the results, we can help.
We sell our software PKNail because we understand some things you want to do yourself, and we understand how PKNail can speed your day and acquisition of data. Whether it's a phone call, or on-site training with your team we can help you set up and implement a successful building surveying and documentation program.
