PDF or CAD to BIM Conversion by United-BIM

PDF/CAD to BIM Services -
Conversion & Modeling

Our PDF to BIM or CAD to BIM services focuses on developing Revit BIM (Architectural/Structural/MEPFP) models from PDF, hand-sketch, image or from 2D or 3D CAD files (DWG, DXF, DNG).

Develop BIM Models with Required LOD and Accuracy

We can create detailed and accurate BIM models – Architectural | Structural | MEPFP from either a PDF or an image or hand-drawn sketches or 2D or 3D CAD files. Our CAD to BIM or PDF to BIM conversion services can develop BIM models from existing 2D floor plans, elevations and sections in CAD or even in PDF format.

We can convert all types of drawings including architectural CAD drawings, structural CAD drawings and MEP CAD drawings to BIM models using Autodesk’s Revit and Navisworks. Our BIM modelers take actual dimensions and design intent from the reference source files provided by clients and create collaborative information-rich BIM models for downstream processes.

Our BIM modelers can deliver efficient and accurate BIM models as per building construction codes, standards, and specifications. Our BIM experts will first understand exactly what building components client wants in the model, and to what level of detail (LOD) each element should have.

Our PDF/CAD to BIM Models Conversion Services Include

PDF to BIM

All we need is a PDF file of the project drawings and our BIM modelers can convert it into a BIM model in Revit.

2D CAD to BIM

All we need is a 2D CAD (.dwg) file of the project drawing and our BIM modelers can convert it into a BIM model in Revit.

3D CAD to BIM

Even if you have a 3D CAD file of the project drawing, our BIM modelers can convert it into a BIM model in Revit.

Sketch to BIM

All we need is the hand-drawn sketch of the project and our BIM modelers can convert it into a BIM model in Revit.

Revit BIM Models for Different Stages of Building Design Phase

Schematic Design Stage of Building Design Phase by United-BIM

Revit BIM Models for Schematic Design Stage

The schematic stage of building design phase includes rough sketches, drawings that illustrate the basic concepts of design and we can create a BIM model that includes the main building form, space planning and 3D views – isometrics, axonometrics and perspectives. We can also provide basic quantities from BIM models to enable cost evaluation at an early stage, thereby reducing future design changes.

If we receive 2D or 3D CAD files (.dwg) of building design in schematics phase then we will create Revit BIM model with the details such as plans, elevations, sections and 3D views along with the following details:

  • 3D scale model of entire building showing context (neighboring buildings, infrastructure)
  • 3D views - isometrics, axonometrics, and perspectives
  • Floor plans of all levels and exterior building elevations withs generic openings and finishes
  • Building cross section
  • Typical wall section
  • Simulations - Walk-through and Flyover

Revit BIM Models for Design Development Stage

The design development stage involves finalizing the design, specifying items such as materials, windows and doors location and structural details. We can develop accurate and detailed BIM models to enable the project team to ‘build’ the project in a virtual environment. Our team supports clients through data sharing and integration for design co-ordination, detailed analysis and addition of specification data.

If we receive 2D or 3D CAD files (.dwg) of building design developed in design development stage then we will create Revit BIM model with the details such exterior envelops, structure, fenestration, interior systems, MEP systems etc. along with the following details:

  • Floor plans & exterior elevations with proposed basis of design openings and finishes
  • Structural grid, interior wall, & overall dimensions
  • Wall sections at all typical conditions
  • Additional building sections
  • Additional details to establish basis of design products

Construction Document Stage of Building Design Phase by United-BIM

Revit BIM Models for Construction Document Stage

The construction document includes an accurate set of drawings, blueprints, notes and technical specifications necessary for bidding & construction. Our team can convert construction drawings (architectural, structural, MEP) into a BIM models as per requisite construction codes, standards and specifications. Our domain knowledge in the field of construction gives us the expertise to high-quality BIM models.

If we receive 2D or 3D CAD files (.dwg) of building design developed as a construction document then we will create Revit BIM models with the following details:

  • BIM Models - architectural, structural, MEPFP
  • Fully annotated floor plans, sections, exterior elevations
  • All building sections including wall sections at all conditions
  • HVAC plans, schedule, details and notes
  • Electrical plans, Plumbing plans, schedule, details and notes
  • All general and detailed notes
  • BIM Models with 4D & 5D details
