Description

Description

This class will focus on how 3D laser scanning was implemented into everyday use in a six-person civil engineering office with the Leica® C10, Leica® Cyclone, Leica® CloudWorx, and AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software. We will explore the changes in workflows that were required due to the implementation as well as the benefits and challenges. Grady Consulting is a small civil engineering company based in New England with special expertise in designing septic systems, including septic modifications and repairs, mostly for residential clients. In 2010, we added a Leica® ScanStation C10 and Leica® HDS software to our toolkit, plugging these tools directly into our septic system engineering process. This presentation will describe our field and office workflows and the benefits of using laser scanning for these everyday projects. In addition, we will describe the activities to expand the company’s services to new applications and new clients as a result of adding this scanning capability as part of the company’s service offerings.
