Bring Point Cloud to 3D Model in Navisworks


I work for a general contractor in commercial construction (building), managing all trades, including site work trades (i.e. site utilities, grading, etc.). I am currently using a Phantom 4.

  1. Have anyone has experience with bringing the LAS export from DD to a BIM Model in Naviswork? What is your workflow? How do you solve the coordinate conversion issue?

  2. What about overlaying the site utilities CAD on the orthomosaic image and export to PDF? I saw couple companies did that but wasn’t sure what the workflow was.

Really appreciate any ideas.

What i have loosely heard is that someone imported .las into Revit and saved as .rcs file and then imported into Navisworks. Hope this helps.
