Professional, Reliable Drafting Services and 3D Laser Scanning
We assist property owners, planners, builders, contractors, engineers and architects to develop detailed building plans, drawing and databases for as-builts, reconstructs and renovations. Whether it is converting existing blueprints to CAD, or creating 3D models from existing drawings.
We know that outdated plans cause concerns when it comes to safety, workflow, maintenance and facility management. Because as-built drawings are rarely accurate to the existing conditions we offer onsite laser scanning of both the exterior and interior layouts. By combining the blueprints and a 3D laser scan we are able to generate 100% accurate 2D and 3D drawings of any facility.
Seeing is Believing Create a Digital Twin!
Visual Plan is a 3D software and visualization services company with a distribution and service partner network across the US/CAN and Latin America. We train, sell and support our software applications and offer field capture, CAD/BIM and consulting services. Our solution leverages off the shelf 360° camera hardware with a near-zero CapX model and easy to use, do it yourself software to rapidly capture 360° video and images to process measurable as-built models called “digital twins”.

Kickstart employs the latest Faro technology in 3D laser scanning to provide the best quality scans and 3D models for our clients. Our LiDAR services produce highly accurate results, used by engineers, architects and facilities managers.
3D Modeling Services
Kickstart’s 3D services include Revit 3D modelling to convert your 2D floor plans, elevations, sections, details, and interior elevations into a 3D building model. Revit’s built-in default families are used for architectural objects such as walls, windows, doors, furniture, cabinets, etc. We can also use the client’s custom Revit families when provided to match your unique building systems, furniture and equipment. The final Revit 3D models can include multiple disciplines such as architectural, structural, and MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing). The final architectural model can also be exported to DWG, DWF, and PDF formats if required.Learn More
BIM, REVIT, and AUTOCAD
Adopting Building Information Modeling best practices in an integrated fashion. Looking at all aspects of BIM like:
Data Acquisition: Reality capture (Lidar), Scanning and converting legacy documents
Tools: design tools like Autodesk Revit, AutoCAD Architecture, ArchiCAD, SketchUP, etc. Review and markup tools like Bluebeam Revu
Processes: Execution Plan, Workflow, Drawing Lifecycles, Systems Design (IT networks)
Data management: Intranets, Extranets (e.g. Autodesk Vault, Sharepoint, Bluebeam Enterprise, etc.), Cloud computing (private on-premise and public like AWS)
