Abstract: Current approaches for the automated acquisition of Building Information Models (BIMs) of existing buildings are limited to only few elements of the building. Furthermore, most work is also related to the reconstruction of indoor elements, and not dedicated to structural elements (e. g. walls, slabs, beams, columns, openings). In this work, a framework for scan to BIM automation is proposed that focusses on structural elements and has a modular structure that allows the adaptation to other types of elements or types of structures. To achieve this, advanced methods for segmentation and data exploitation are being applied.
