Plant designers are among the earliest adopters of reality capture technologies. With a facility's constant demand for upgrade, repair, and turnaround, highly accurate, yet efficient real-world measurements are an essential foundation for new design and organized asset management. One major technology, laser scanning, is becoming more of a standard rather than luxury within the plant design world. Over the past few years Autodesk has made significant strides in combining reality capture technologies natively into software products such as AutoCAD® software and Navisworks® software. This class provides live demonstrations and real user stories to review the latest enhancements for reality capture in the 2014 product portfolio as well as evaluate how the enhancements affect the AutoCAD plant design workflow. Attendees learn the latest methods for going from scanning, to point clouds, to deliverables such as intelligent plant models, tie-in points, equipment conditions, clash reports, and more.
