Art Graphique et Patrimoire: digitally capture and document cultural sites

Art Graphique & Patrimoine was founded in 1994 out of a passion for sculpture and for the preservation of cultural heritage. Since then, AGP has managed many different projects that required traditional expertise as much as a progressive spirit of innovation. Over the years, AGP has accumulated more than 1500 prestigious references in France and abroad. Today, AGP is one of the leaders in France in the field of digital technologies for the acquisition and preservation of cultural heritage.

Art Graphique has used PointCab Origins to generate accurate othophotos from the extensive scan data of the buildings. You could see vivid examples of this just now in the video of Art Graphique et Patrimoine. Thanks to PointCab Origins it was possible to generate detailed orthophotos, regardless of the laser scanner file formats. Fast processing of very large and extensive point clouds is no problem thanks to PointCab Origins. All details are accurately captured and mapped. This creates a reliable basis for restorations and new components. In addition, Art Graphique creates impressive images through the versatile visualization options in PointCab Origins, which let the buildings shine in a new light.

3D rendering of a historic commercial hall

Laserscanning Architecture uses PointCab Origins in AutoCAD Architecture

The company Laser Scanning Architecture used the FARO 3D laser scanner for the three-dimensional acquisition of a historic commercial hall. The 3D data created was evaluated using AutoCAD Architecture and PointCab Origins. The scan data was analyzed in both photo mode and pixel mode using FARO Scene software. In the model, analyses and geometric allowances were performed in colored panoramic views. Perspectives could be freely selected and partial areas of the model could be hidden as desired.

Using PointCab Origins, a 2D analysis was realized in AutoCAD Architecture. For this purpose, orthographic 2D views of the existing structure were created from any position in the model using PointCab Origins. This laid the foundation for efficient replanning. The advantages were: orthographic 2D images of the inventory, as well as freely selectable positions in the scan. The inventory could be quickly captured in detail (cornices, stone formats, etc.). The resulting highly accurate dimensioning, formed the basis for efficient redesign, including overdrawing of component edges. PointCab Origins results were used to create plans, elevations, sections and 3D BIM models. Images could be extracted from the point cloud. The client was able to quickly view and use the information thanks to the web export.

About Laser Scanning Architecture

As a formerly classic architectural office, we specialized in 3D laser scanning in 2010. Since then, the demand has increased so much that we are now only active in 3D surveying. Managing director Johannes Rechenbach has a working experience of more than 30 years as a freelance architect and has been running his own architectural office in Hannover for 20 years.

During this time, we have learned many times that a thorough survey of the existing building is always the basis for a successful remodeling project. The precise laser scanning therefore offers the perfect basis for all projects of building in existing contexts. https://www.laser-scanning-architecture.com

Facade elevation of a listed industrial building

Refurbishment of a listed industrial building in Magdeburg

3D laser scanning was used as a surveying method for the listed renovation of an old industrial building in Magdeburg. As part of the renovation and conversion work, 22 loft apartments are to be created in the complex. In order to renovate the façade in accordance with the preservation order during the conversion work, detailed, highly accurate plans of the façade to scale are required. Due to the limited space available, the 17 m high facade can only be mapped using a non-contact measuring method.

The smallest of the three facades, the east facade, has several facade jumps and sloping facade parts, which increased the effort of surveying and evaluation.  With the help of laser scanning, the facade details, such as window openings and wall protrusions, could be captured with high accuracy.

Orthophotos were automatically generated from the laser scanning survey results using PointCab Origins. Using the true-to-scale PointCab Origins images, the data was imported into Geograf within an hour. This resulted in detailed orthophotos and structured, digital 2D plans of the facades, including the cracks in the east facade. Modeling can now be carried out in the generated views and sections of the 3D CAD model, which simplifies planning for the renovation and conversion work.

The facts again at a glance: The three facades of the building complex were captured by laser scanner. The data was evaluated with PointCab Origins and Geograf at a scale of 1:50. A total of 25 laser scanner locations were used to measure the 1,720 m² of the facade. Only one employee was needed for the survey, which took only 5 hours. One of the advantages of PointCab Origins was the fast generation of the othophotos. Within one hour, 3 GB of data could be processed. This resulted in true-to-scale and detailed images. Reading in and further processing of the data in the CAD system Geograf was possible without any problems. Thanks to the quickly generated Othofotos, the evaluation in Geograf was a piece of cake. In total, the project was completed within 35 working hours from the first scan.

Surveying of 12.000sqm of inhabited floor space

Preparation of fire protection and as-built plans – for 12,000 m² of inhabited floor space

The purpose of a project by Faschang Service & Management GmbH was to prepare fire protection and as-built plans for 12,000 m² of floor space. The area to be surveyed includes a hotel, a municipal theater, and office and residential space. In order to document the large area accurately in a short time, a FARO Focus3D laser scanner was used. The use of 3D laser scanning technology turned out to be an advantage. With only two employees, the entire area was digitally captured within 45 hours.

The registered scan results, i.e. the total point cloud, were subsequently evaluated with PointCab Origins. For this purpose, various floor plans, site plans and sections were generated fully automatically. Based on the highly accurate and true-to-scale orthophotos, the required as-built plans and fire protection plans were created in AutoCAD 2013. Thanks to the existing point cloud, additional facade plans could be generated quickly and easily at a later date for the planning of an extension.
