Convert Point Cloud scan to Revit and AutoCAD service

We have been working in many projects that require to convert the Point Cloud scan model into Revit model for capturing the existing condition. Check out the Portfolio for the introduction of my previous project and you can also view the model online by this link: http://a360.co/2yTQQyA

Please contact us and let discuss about your project.
