TruePoint 3D laser scanned a historic theatre to generate a 3D Revit model for seating renovations.

Case Study: 3D Laser Scanning a Theatre to Generate a 3D Model

Location: Philadelphia, PA

Task: TruePoint 3D laser scanned a historic theater including the main floor, three balcony levels and box seats to generate a 3D Revit model for seating renovations. The target objects of data acquisition were structural features, including exposed columns and beams; and the architectural envelope of the audience area, including walls, floors, ceilings, doors, openings, railings, seats, floor and lighting.

Challenge: The client did not have accurate as-builts to plan and layout the new seating and understand the grade of the main floor and balconies. Manually measuring for this would have been time consuming and less accurate.

Solutions: 3D laser scanning will provide the client precise, as-built documentation of the historic theater, including floor slope, balcony and ceiling heights. TruePoint captured point cloud data to generate a 3D as-built model from which the client could take measurements and locate key features that could be affected by the seating renovation.

Deliverable: TruePoint’s in-house CAD technicians created a 3D Revit model for the client. Revit families were created for all the varying features so that each layer could be selected or de-selected depending on which portion of the model was being analyzed by the client.

Added Value: The project was undertaken to have accurate data to facilitate timely and cost-efficient decisions. The 3D model will be crucial to plan for enhancements that are made to the space. This model could further be used to study the room acoustics and how adding/removing/changing objects would impact the reflection of sound.
