Large process-plant refurbishments present a host of unique problems to engineers tasked with documenting the existing as-built conditions. New technologies such as ReCap Pro software, automated feature extraction, and others can result in a faster, more accurate deliverable, but engineers need to fully understand the workflow changes that these technologies require. This class, taught by a panel of experts in plant workflows, will highlight several new technologies, such as ReCap Pro software, and it will show you the ways to integrate these technologies into a plant scanning and modeling project.
AutoCAD and Plant 3D users who are scanning and modeling as-built facilities
Matthew Byrd is known for his passion and involvement in the world's leading 3D technology. He began his career while in high school at a land surveying and engineering firm, and he hasn't stopped since. His pursuit has carried him into an array of positions, including survey field crew member, office CAD technician, and scanning technician, until he finally became DeWalt Corporation's director of tasks related to 3D laser scanning and 3D as-built modeling from the ground up. His technical skillset and passion for 3D technology has continued to improve and increase over the last few years. He has completed many projects for world-renowned engineering and oil and gas companies, and he is a frequent speaker and panelist at industry conventions.
Greg has worked in the AECO industry for the last 15 years with a background in construction management, structural engineering, BIM management and consulting. He specializes in Autodesk Revit and Navisworks, laser scanning, and mobile technology and provides training, strategic planning, HDS building documentation services and best practice solutions. Greg has spoken at many professional events including AU and SPAR Point International. In addition, Greg is founder of the RocCity Revit User Group and supports BIM user groups across western New York.
Kevin Williams is a pioneer in the fields of laser scanning technology, computer vision algorithms and LiDAR data analyses. He wrote the world's first data analysis engine for Aerial LiDAR which is still in use today within SAIC. He is a frequent lecturer and author on new technology trends in the CAD and geospatial industries. He is currently the founder and Chief Technology Officer at ClearEdge3Dwhere he is developing automated modeling technologies under funding from the National Science Foundation.
