Use ReCap Pro and the NASA team experience to create new scanning workflows
Plan and budget for very large and complex scanning projects
Make better use of multiperson data collection teams
Perform in-field techniques that significantly speed up data acquisition
Are you considering or have you already been awarded a large scanning project, but are unsure how to complete it within schedule? This class provides instruction for significantly improving the workflow for conducting large scanning projects. We discuss the firsthand experiences of a 2-person team that used ReCap Pro software to collect and register 1,800 color scans from a 250,000-square-foot NASA wind tunnel facility in just 14 days (one-quarter of the estimated time). We provide a full project walkthrough from planning to data delivery. Topics covered include motivations for the project, descriptions of tools used to complete the project, and an overview of the in-field workflows employed by the 2-person team. The lessons and insights provided during this class will save you time and money and prove invaluable for your next scanning project.
Anyone who uses a laser scanner,
is contracting laser scanning services,
or is interested in using reality capture in the future
Dr. Aaron Morris is a researcher, roboticist, entreprenuer and, most recently, product manager for Autodesk's Reality Capture group. In 2007, Aaron earned his doctoral degree in robotics from the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University where he researched and prototyped autonomous robots, computer vision systems, 3D laser mapping technologies and automated decision-making software. In 2009, Aaron founded Allpoint Systems where he and his team created software solutions that made possible efficient 3D capture and analysis workflows for engineering, survey and architectural applications. He served as the President and CEO of Allpoint until late 2012, when it was acquired by Autodesk. Aaron has authored 17 publications, is a co-inventor of two patents and has three patents pending in the fields of robotics and 3D data capture.
