Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere or is basic
We are a surveying company currently using autocad lt & skecthup to produce as built building surveys
I would like to upgrade to a integrated 3d / plan program so that sections etc can be easily extracted and also to build surveys up from laser scans in 3d as opposed to translating to 2d line work all the time which seems a backwards step
I have tried the trial of ACA and like it. i survey onsite with a laptop - can drop a generic wall in, adjust the thickness and move on. i can select a wall to triangulate the angle and when i rotate it, doors windows already placed come along to.
the project xref based modelling is a bit of pain however when the job is small, and changes in floor levels also seem unnecessarily complicated
hence i would like 'on the fly' adjustable generic revit content to add as i survey. am i correct in thinking that this isnt possible and essentially i would need to create a new family for every size of existing window & wall thickness etc.
any help appreciated or a 'revit' based survey methodology that anyone uses for alterations etc?
