Beyond Reality Capture: One GC's Search for the Maximum Value from Laser Scanning
Start Date: November 17, 2016
Start Time:2:00 PM EST
Laser Scanning has been a trending Reality Capture tool in Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) and Construction Technology field in the last several years. However, the application of 3D point cloud data from laser scanner has been limited to reality capturing, 3D Coordination and modeling from scan data. This presentation will focus on how DPR has taken the 3D information to the next level by analyzing and extracting the point cloud data and presenting the results in user-friendly formats to help our project teams build better. We will highlight the laser scanning journey at DPR, and practical and experimental laser scanning applications enabled through coupling Faro scanning hardware and multiple software platforms like FARO SCENE, Rithm, Edgewise, Recap, Navisworks and AutoCAD.
- Understanding current useful application of laser scanning and 3D point cloud data.
- Understanding how the technology can benefit concrete construction in controlling quality
- Learn how laser scanning can quickly provide useful information to construction project team
