    Does anyone have recommendations for either a free cell phone app, or reasonably priced technology that i can use to talk around and scan an existing building layout?

    Even if i had to redraw it in cad/revit afterwords, something that would show the walls and dimensions rather than using a tape measure in every single room.

    Thanks,

    I think the little Bosch laser measures are pretty cheap and available at the big box stores...Or are you looking for something that will actually map it?
