Reverse engineering, also called back engineering, is the process by which a man-made object is deconstructed to reveal its designs, architecture, or to extract knowledge from the object. Reality IMT worked with a Houston developer to reconstruct this historic church using 3D laser scanning technology. Our team scanned the building’s exterior and interior, then used the pointcloud data to generate an as-built Revit model. The Revit model was then used by the Architect for space analysis to ensure that certain elements are preserved during the renovation process.

The accuracy of the reconstructed 3D model of the structure was within + or – 1 inch. To see the pointcloud online, click here

In addition to the 3D pointcloud model, the Team at Reality IMT took a high resolution immersive-360 degree image of the worship area to showcase its structural elements. Click here to see the panoramic 360 degree image
