FARO BIM Ready Package for Revit®

  • Laser Scan to BIM solution for the Building Lifecycle

Laser Scan to BIM solution for the Building Lifecycle

The BIM Ready Package for Revit combines FARO’s innovative Focus3D Laser Scanner, intuitive SCENE registration software and intelligent design software PointSense for Revit for delivering real world information into BIM models. Efficient delivery and analysis of this information benefits project owners by enabling them to reduce overall project costs while meeting or exceeding schedule deadlines. FARO’s customized BIM Ready Package for Revit provides customers a comprehensive field-to-finish solution for every phase of the building lifecycle.


  • Fast, straightforward and accurate scanning capability
  • Point cloud imagery with authentic color for true-to-life visualization
  • Improved and automated registration workflow with an intuitive user interface
  • Work with laser scan data directly inside Revit
  • Extract building components and analyze them against scan data
  • One complete ready-made solution for all common BIM applications


“FARO provides an all-inclusive set of tools which allows us to streamline the process from site scanning to BIM deliverables in Revit.“

Components of the BIM ready Package for Revit

Laser scanning is still an emerging technology, which places high demands on equipment and software. This bundle combines the most advanced hardware with the most sophisticated software into one all-inclusive package for a seamless workflow.

FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D X Series

3d laser scannerThe smallest and lightest laser scanners on the market - Focus3D X Series are ideal tools for indoor and outdoor applications. The fast and accurate Focus3D Laser Scanners offer everything you expect from professional 3D laser scanners – with FARO’s established and well-known level of simplicity.
  • Focus3D X 330 offers extra long range - 330 meters,
  • Focus3D X 130 is a mid-range device offering precise scanning up to 130 meters.
  • The HDR imaging function and high-resolution photographs deliver realistic and true-to-detail scan results with spectacular image quality.
  • The Focus3D X 30 Laser Scanner was specially designed to fit the need of short-range and interior scanning applications, capturing data up to 30 meters.

All Focus3D X series scanner types offer the ability to perform scanning even in bright sunlight.


3d laser scanner
  • SCENE processes and manages scanned data easily and efficiently by using automatic object recognition as well as scan registration and positioning. SCENE can also generate high-quality colorized scans very quickly, while providing the tools for automated target-less scan positioning.
    Once SCENE has prepared the scan data, you can commence evaluation and further processing right away.
  • Scan projects can even be published on a web server at the touch of a button.
  • The new SCENE WebShare feature allows easy access to laser scans with a standard Internet browser.

FARO PointSense for Revit

3d laser scannerThe functionality of PointSense permits a quick and intuitive workflow when processing large point clouds in Revit® and creates inventory architecture that can be used in BIM.

  • The 3D-models are created directly in Revit® point clouds. Use special commands for modelling and detailing BIM elements:
    Ground surfaces, walls, doors, windows, stairs, columns, beams, pillars, roofs and many more.
  • Tools for automatically fitting and aligning walls
  • Create directly in the point cloud using 3D construction aids and real 3D point snap
  • Fit Revit® work planes in the point cloud
  • Calculate from ortho images directly in the Revit® project
  • Process scan data in the Revit® families editor
  • Simple and intuitive navigation in the photo like scan view
