Learn how to take existing project information and capitalize on Autodesk, Inc., platforms; ReCap 360 Pro software; Remake software; Revit software; and Maya software—all to create and aggregate models and present information in an immersive virtual-reality setting to derive value for the overall project. The case study we’ll look at is a historically significant, high-visibility project that needed various reality-capture methods to mitigate possible risk and liability during construction. The team was able to use these requirements to drive drone flights, photogrammetric models, and laser scans. These were used to enrich the design models and create an environment to run scenarios for logistics and feasibility studies. The downstream effect will help the owner better understand the complexity and manage understanding of changes as they occur. The created environment will also aid in developing future projects that have similar challenges. This session features ReCap, Maya, and Revit. AIA Approved
Join us for a guided tour of how Black & Veatch is exploring the potential impact of virtual-reality (VR) job sites on the future of design and construction. What's a VR job site, you ask? It is a virtual version of the actual job site, including cranes and temporary works. This virtual version can take many forms, ranging from 3D meshes to spherical photography. The idea is to create and use VR job sites for planning, safety, and historical purposes because VR eliminates assumptions and risk by capturing and portraying the actual job-site conditions, not just modeled conditions. Additionally—and most fun of all—you can immerse yourself in a VR job site or future design using first-person VR. Together we will explore real examples—proofs of concepts and ideas from infrastructure projects—including power plants and water projects. But it won't be a total space odyssey—some of the ideas we will explore together are being implemented today, and with ease! This session features ReCap, ReCap 360, and Revit. AIA Approved
