Description

Scan Terrain will create an Autodesk® Revit® Toposurface from a laser scanned point cloud. Options are available to set the point spacing and to isolate the ground surface. When Isolating the ground surface, parameters are available to specify if the ground surface is flat, hilly, or mountainous and if the terrain has steps or steep slopes. These parameters help to ensure the ground surface is calculated correctly. There is also a command to add Toposurface points from the point cloud to an existing Toposurface with the option to delete the existing points in the area of newly added points.

  • Thank you!
    Tesla Tesla | August 23, 2018

    I've been really frustrated trying to find an optimal solution for my point cloud scan. This really is a great and simple software. Does exactly what it says. Thanks once again.


  • Revit 2019 version
    Julio Tollendal Gomes Ribeiro | August 18, 2018

    Hello! It works on Revit 2019? Thks!

  • Easy and Accurate

    Works exactly as intended and very simple interface.


  • Great value for money
    German Otto Bodenbender | July 04, 2018

    Great add-in that does exactly what we need, create topo from points clouds. Before this I had to develop a tedious workflow that invoves Civil 3D and other softwares.

  • Impressive
    ROBERT GLOVER | June 18, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Working on projects on hills has always been a problem for designers, but with a couple hours of laser scanning (or minutes of flying a drone though far less accurate) plus this app we can have accurate elevations of the site without all the trees, buildings, and other items that cause point clouds to be less than useful for new building work. It's amazing and I'm passing the word along to the rest of my BIM/VDC team at my company.


  • Get it while its still cheap
    Andy Schiff | December 20, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I almost cant believe that a 5 dollar add-in would work so well. I have pushed gigs and gigs through different point cloud software like Pix4D and CloudCompare and this add-in is just as accurate for creating Topo surfaces and a hec of a lot quicker than running all that raw data through several different programs just to get some contour lines to create a Topo that conflicts with each other. Using Scan To Terrain is a huge time saver. And the Point Cloud and the Topo will be in uniform. Thanks so much for creating this add-in


  • No Point Cloud selectable
    Arne Kolisch | November 10, 2017

    Started a new project and loaded an .rcp point cloud file. As soon as I click the "Create Toposurface" button the screen and the menu gray out and the cursor changes to a selection not allowed symbol - can't click on anything. Only option is to cancel the selection by pressing esc. What am I doing wrong? Using Autodesk Revit 2017.

    Got this result in site plan (lageplan in german) and every other 2D view.


    Ingersoll Consulting (Publisher) | April 03, 2018

    This was caused by a problem with non-English versions of Revit and has been corrected in the 1.1 version. Please download and install the latest version of the app.
