This class will compare the process of building a Revit software model from reality capture 3D laser scans versus building one from historic plans. Often clients assume that modeling from a plan is faster and cheaper than sending a scanning crew to the site. We look at several case studies and compare the numbers to show how and why 3D laser scanning is less expensive, faster, and more accurate.
Pro modelers who need a as-built model for their projects and need to know the pros and cons of 2D docs vs 3D reality capture
Larry Kleinkemper, AIA, has lectured on 3 continents. He has spoken at Autodesk University, SPAR, Texas Society of Architects Convention, the Building Communities Conference, and many other events. Larry is known as a leader in computer modeling, rendering, and animation, Larry has received honors among his peers and clients for his expertise. He is an architect with over 18 years of experience in his field. Over the last decade, he has concentrated on providing light detection and ranging (LiDAR) scanning of buildings in order to create precise intelligent models. His registrations include National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB)-accredited architect, and he is currently registered in Texas and Missouri. He is the past executive president of the Autodesk Animation User Group Association, and he is a past president and founder of the 3ds Max User Group in London, England. He is a current member of the American Institute of Architects and the U.S. Institute of Building Documentation.
The class will focus on the uptake and rise of laser scanning workflows in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry in the United Kingdom. We will discuss a variety of workflow options utilizing DWGŽ TrueView .dwg viewer data captured from live scan information and validation of the scan data into ReCap software, Revit software, and Navisworks project review software. The class will also delve into typical and best-practice workflows when it comes to using the scan data effectively on large-scale projects, as well as understanding how the use of the data can begin to replace traditional visualization methods when communicating ideas to clients and consultants through differing stages of projects. The class will enable you to realistically help your staff to utilize the scan data and effectively manipulate it to produce typical architectural diagrams and drawings.
