The mission of the BIMERR project, funded by the EU H2020 Programme, is to design and develop an ICT-enabled Renovation 4.0 toolkit comprising tools for Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) stakeholder support throughout the energy efficiency renovation process of existing buildings.

The Cyberbuild lab’s main contribution to the project is the development of a Scan-to-BIM tool, generating BIM models (following the IFC standard) from point clouds.

  • Scan-to-BIM Interface 

    Valero, Enrique; Ceklarz, Michal; Mohanty, Dibya D; Bosché, Frédéric
    The Scan-to-BIM Interface is an umbrella component, which is supported by a Graphical User Interface, and merges the Scan-to-BIM sub-components and facilitate the users’ interaction with the Scan-to-BIM Tool. The ...
  • IFC Generator 

    Valero, Enrique; Bosché, Frédéric
    This program reads a pseudo-IFC file, containing semantic information about the structural entities defining a building and produces an IFC (STEP) file. The only input argument is the path to this file. The output is an ...
  • extractStoreys 

    Valero, Enrique; Bosché, Frédéric
    This algorithm takes a point cloud of a building as a main input, divides it into storeys, extract structural elements and parametrises their geometry and relationships. Input arguments are the following: (1) path to file ...
  • calculateOpenings 

    Valero, Enrique; Bosché, Frédéric
    This program reads pairs of point clouds corresponding to both sides of every wall, identifies where holes are on the surfaces and calculate openings, by analysing the overlapping between patches extracted from the two ...
  • editMaterials 

    Ceklarz, Michal; Valero, Enrique; Bosché, Frédéric
    This program adds and edits material information of IfcWalls and IfcSlabs contained in the IFC model (schema IFC4X1). The input argument is a path to the IFC file that is to be edited. The output argument is the edited IFC ...
  • Synthetic building 

    Valero, Enrique
    Artificially generated point cloud (cloud_coloured.e57) of a one-storey facility with three spaces including openings in the walls. The IFC model (model.ifc) obtained from the cloud has been enriched with 2nd level space ...
