We capture and document Buildings, Spaces and Objects

3D Laser Scanning is the most effective method for quickly and accurately capturing a building’s actual shape and dimensions. 3D Scanning is a surveying method which allows for the digitization of buildings and spaces without any need for actual physical contact. This technology uses a laser to extract millions of points which in turn make up a Point Cloud. These point clouds are then used to generate precise 2D Drawings and 3D Models for building analysis to be performed by Architects, Engineers and other professionals in the Design and Construction Industries. This technology is cost-effective due to quick turnaround times and hands-off methods which often prevent the need for scaffolding and extensive labor normally required to document Existing Conditions or As-Built Conditions.


Document & Preserve Historic Landmarks

MYND Workshop captures heritage spaces using a set of hands-off surveying and documentation techniques including 3D Laser Scanning, Photogrammetry and Photography. The precision of these methods allows MYND Workshop to capture the most intricate of details commonly found in historic spaces such as moulding and trim, friezes, column capitals and other architectural ornament. We work directly with your team of Architects and Preservationists to provide the documentation they require. Reasons for documenting historic spaces and structures include having full Architectural Documentation in the event of a fire or other disasters, strategic renovations requiring new utilities such as Sprinkler and HVAC Systems, Virtual Tourism and much more. We are experienced in providing documents required by the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) and other local Historic Landmark authorities, including detailed Building Elevations, Rendered Elevations & Street Views, Window and Door Profile Details and more.

Turn your Heritage Space into a3D BIM Model

Our 3D Modeling Team converts your Landmarked Buildings and Heritage Spaces into 3D Models in a wide variety of formats including BIM, Revit / RVT, Sketchup / SKP, DAE, OBJ, DWG, DFX and more. Our team models around 3D Point Clouds resulting from Laser Scanning, and as a supplement uses photogrammetry and traditional surveying tools such as total stations. MYND Workshop's modeling methods assure for highly accurate representational models of your space which can be used by your Architects and Engineers as a base file or "background" reference to design from. Our team works with your offices designated standards and will adapt modeling methods to meet any special requests your team may have.


Turn your buildings and interiors into 3D Mesh Models

MYND Workshop converts point clouds into fully textured 3D mesh files. Formats include OBJ, PLY and more.  Such files have many applications including 3D renderings, space planning,detail and ornament analysis, orthographic images and many more.

Let us turn your spaces into 2D Ornament Drawings

MYND Workshop provides 2D CAD Background drawings for your projects, no matter what level of ornament or detail your design team may require. Our drawings are commonly used as base drawings and are typically ordered in the early planning stages of a project. Depending on your requirements, such drawings may be necessary at varying phases throughout the design and construction process. Such drawings can also be useful for documentation purposes or for Historic Landmark Designation presentations. We always work side by side with your team to determine which deliverables make the most sense, and to assure that we are providing all elements which your team requires to achieve their objectives, be it a successful design workflow or a winning designation presentation for a public hearing.
