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.
Those seeking effective ways to manage and accurately represent building construction through varying stages of projects.
Rebecca De Cicco is a digital design specialist who completed her honors in architecture in 2001. Her keen interest in digital technologies and how they can evolve and ultimately change the construction industry has always been at the forefront of her thinking. After a series of successful senior roles in varied architectural organizations, Rebecca now manages her own consultancy, providing advice and insight to construction professionals on advanced digital workflow on live projects. Rebecca is one of the team leaders for the U.K. Construction Industry Council BIM 2050 Group, which is a team of young professionals aiming to steer the industry and its government drivers toward a Digital Built Britain. She sits on the User Group for Building Smart U.K., and she is the founder of the Women in BIM (Building Information Modeling) incentive. Rebecca is an Autodesk University speaker and an Autodesk Feedback Community attendee.
Matthew recently joined Topcon as Laser Scanning Sales Manager GB. He has been working with laser scanners and point cloud data since 2000. He has spent over 5 years at London Underground in the Land Survey Team where he was instrumental in the adoption of Laser Scanning across the organisation. During this time he put in place the processes, hardware and associated software needed to manage a large amount of scan data. He has a keen interest in BIM, especially where laser scanning can bring greater benefits to the overall construction industry drawing upon his time spent at London Underground gaining and understanding of a client's requirements. Matthew was a key member of the working group that produced the UK Government BIM Task Group Client's guide to Laser Scanning. He also sits on the Survey4BIM committee for the BIM Task Group as well as the advisory board for the SPAR Europe 2014 laser scanning conference and is on the Technical Committee for the GeoBusiness 2015 conference.
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.
