Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Learn how to import point cloud scans into Navisworks
  • Learn how to place points in the model using Point Layout
  • Learn how to upload and share the model and points with the Field Team using BIM 360 Glue
  • Learn how to layout and verify points in the field using the BIM 360 Layout iPad application connected to a robotic total station

Description

Description

Why model as-built conditions when you can work directly with a high-resolution point cloud? In this very hands-on class we will stake out the foundations for a new addition to our Autodesk University (AU) classroom using a remarkably easy, cloud-enabled workflow. First, participants will import a point cloud of our AU classroom into Navisworks Manage software. We will then use Point Layout software to place points on a number of modeled objects that we intend to stake out as part of a small classroom renovation. The model will be shared with the field using BIM 360 Glue cloud service. Finally, we will connect the BIM 360 Layout iPad application to a robotic total station to enable field users to stake out and verify the exact position of the points. All of this will happen using a contextual model of our surroundings.

Michael Moran

Michael Moran is a consultant at Autodesk, Inc., focusing on construction. He helps customers optimize their construction processes through adoption of cloud-based BIM 360 tools, with a focus on design review, production planning, scheduling, field management, layout, and project handover to owner/operator. His master's thesis in construction management at the Delft University of Technology was a comparative study designed to assess productivity gains from using Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools on Skanska AB U.S. building projects. Together with Skanska and Autodesk, Michael presented a webinar on this case study. Michael has taught 3 previous Autodesk University classes and has spoken multiple times about the benefits of cloud-based BIM at the European 5D Conference. Other experiences in the building industry include founding and running a concrete specialty forming firm, working as a consultant on several major infrastructure projects, and obtaining a bachelor's degree in architecture from the University of Bath in the United Kingdom.
