Learn how to improve overall scan-project workflow
Learn about tools that will make you more competitive in the scan-project bidding stage
Discover pros and cons of target-less scan registration (ReCap software)
Discover pros and cons of automatic feature extraction (3D modeling)
This presentation will outline the new workflow that DeWalt Corporation has implemented to dramatically improve the efficiency of its laser scanning, processing, and modeling. Attendees will learn specific tools, tips, and tricks that the firm implemented to quickly perform 215 targetless laser scans in a 600 foot by 600 foot detailed oil-treatment facility. The firm used ReCap Pro software to register and clean the scans. The final deliverable was an as-built 3D model for phase 1 of a facility redesign project that included tanks, vessels, pipelines, steel pipe racks and pipe supports, ground surface, and more.

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.
As the move towards adopting BIM for construction projects continues to accelerate it is clear that rapid assessment of site conditions and the dissemination of that data to all members of the project team is an exciting development for productive collaborative working. Scanning is a proven method for rapid and accurate digital documentation of current site conditions. The achievable speed of capturing reality means that it is possible to update in 3D daily and at numerous levels of scale. However, with all the options available, which is the right one to use? You will examine some of the many workflow options that allow multiple hardware and software solutions to come together, creating a continuous flow of information and data from field to office. This class will help address the ROI of purchasing your own scanner and turn a previously �nice to have' project deliverable to an essential part of your day to day workflows.
