3D Laser Scanning for AEC - Case Studies and Methods for Scan-to-Model Workflows


Location image of event venue


Presentation by: Paul Olszewski, PLC, PLLS - PJO Survey 3D laser scanning and point clouds are relatively new to the building/ infrastructure design and construction industries. Over the past several years there has been a convergence of hardware advances, software technologies, and scanning service providers that are making this process a viable option for documenting existing building and site conditions.

During the presentation, we'll provide some project examples of laser scanning, then dive into the process for using the point cloud generated from the laser scan. Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD are now very compatible with point cloud data and there are a number of ways of creating geometry from the data captured. Some processes are very manual while others are automated. Come learn how you can transform those existing conditions into very accurate 3D models and reduce the number of trips to the jobsite.

Food and refreshments will be provided.
