3D Laser Scanning for Architectural Documentation

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. Get in touch with us to learn more about our 3D Laser Scanning services in Chicago. We are now serving Greater Chicago neighborhoods and areas including The Loop, Lincoln Park, Wicker Park, Logan Square, Hyde Park, Lincoln Square, West Town, Bucktown, Lower West Side, Edgewater, Oak Park, River North, Old Town, Near North, Streeterville, Lake Shore East, The Gold Coast and more.

We create Point Clouds

A Point Cloud, like a 3D Photograph, provides precise and useful information about a building's dimensional space. We convert this data into reliable deliverables which are used by Architects, Contractors and any Design Teams which require insightful information about a building or space. Get in touch with us now to learn more about how our point clouds can improve your workflow in Chicago.

We provide As-Built Drawings

Also know as “Record Plans” or simply “As-Builts”, As-Built Plans are drawings which document accurate measurements of a building alteration, addition or system installation. These drawings are typically prepared for Contractors, Sub-Contractors, MEP Engineers and Structural Engineers to fulfill local authority requirements (i.e. Department of Buildings) or to act as a reliable base for design. An As-Built Drawing can often be necessary and even required at multiple points throughout the building design and construction process. Get in touch with us now to learn more about our As-Built Drawings services in Chicago.

Existing Conditions Drawings

MYND Workshop implements 3D Scanning and Traditional Surveying methods to deliver accurate and reliable Existing Conditions Plans for projects of all scales. Existing Conditions drawings document the current state of a space or building. They are often required by Architects, Engineers and other Design Professionals as a base for Project Planning and Design. Such drawings can consist of Existing Floor Plans, Existing Building Elevations, Existing Building Sections and more. Get in touch with us now to learn more about our Existing Conditions Drawings services in Chicago.

As-Built Point Clouds for BIM

We work closely with your team to produce accurate Point Clouds which our BIM Specialists then use to produce reliable Revit® models. Our previous experiences include projects ranging from 2000 square feet to 200,000+ square feet and we are always looking for new challenges. Get in touch with us now to learn more about our Point Cloud to BIM and 3D Modeling services in Chicago.

Textured 3D Models & Photogrammetry

We extract and mesh 3D models directly from our laser scan point cloud data, or through a process called Photogrammetry which produces a High Definition, color-accurate texture map. These models have been used for documenting and cataloging landmarked ornament for assisting preservationists working off-site. These types of models can also be used in architectural rendering, video game development, film CGI production and Virtual Reality tours. Get in touch with us now to learn more about our Photogrammetry services in Chicago.
