Trimble EdgeWise software complements Trimble's 3D scanners and Trimble RealWorks software to provide efficient end-to-end workflows in producing accurate BIM-ready models. From scanned pointcloud data, the software automatically detects structural elements such as pipes, conduit and beams, then precisely models them using the dimensions and geometries included in a vast library of common elements.
Trimble EdgeWise efficiently supports modeling of:
Projects vary as do your scanning needs. Whether you are looking to provide as-built information or collecting current conditions for a renovation project, Trimble EdgeWise can help you extract the individual elements and produce the information you need to make decisions. Automated routines enable you to quickly and intelligently extract and model piping, duct, conduit, walls, structural beams or other elements to be exported to your modeling platform of choice.
EdgeWise quality assurance tools allow you to check the accuracy of every extracted element to ensure your model is true to the point cloud. Any poorly fitted object can be easily and quickly resized and adjusted to the points to give you precise control and accuracy of your model. The advanced modeling methodology in the software allows you to efficiently extract and precisely position every object of interest.
Objects and features extracted, modeled and finished in EdgeWise are easily imported into Vico Office, Tekla, SketchUp, Bentley or Revit as fully functional families while maintaining associated attribute data.
Reduce modeling time by up to 50%
Using an automated modeling algorithm when extracting piping, conduit, duct, walls, windows, doors, structural beams and other repeated objects.
Create intelligent BIM models using libraries to ensure industry-standard dimensions.
Be confident in your model accuracy with easy to use quality assurance tools.
For today’s contractors, dense 3D scan data provides a wealth of data about existing site conditions and as-built reporting. However, for many in the construction industry the time and skill required to create actionable deliverables makes 3D scanning an underutilized asset on many building construction jobs. Introducing Trimble® EdgeWise software, a smart modeling and analysis tool that dramatically reduces the time required to accurately transform point cloud data into actionable models of the worksite.
With the latest scanners and modeling tools at your disposal, it's faster and easier than ever to produce comprehensive and precise models of your as-built environments. Learn how Trimble is adapting innovative imaging and modeling solutions for use on the construction worksite, to dramatically improve efficiency of the Field-to-BIM workflow.
