The Stuchbury Manor Farm House is a historic farm house located in a medieval village on the border of Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire.
GlobalCAD was commissioned to develop an accurate Revit BIM model and associated 2D drawings from a point cloud survey.
What we did
We undertook a detailed review of the point cloud survey data supplied by the client using Autodesk ReCap. ReCap is a “Reality capture” and 3D scanning software for intelligent model creation. ReCap works with native point clouds from laser scans and converts millions of point cloud data into a 3D model or 2D drawing for further design.
We developed a detailed Revit BIM 3D model of the farmhouse and the various outbuildings on the site. This was used to generate associated 2D drawing information which included the following:
- Ground Floor Plan
- First Floor Plan
- Roof Plan
The main challenge presented to us was the need to work with historic masonry buildings where the walls, ceilings and floors were not always square, flat or level. Furthermore, there were complex geometrical models in the nooks and crannies of the buildings to reckon with.
