Description

Description

Should you consider adding this tool to your workflow? While there are some very powerful laser scanners that are accurate and fast for larger spaces, and photogrammetry that is cost-effective but not as accurate, there is a growing number of more-affordable handheld scanners that can be capitalized on to augment the as-built conditions, and in some cases they are more effective the other alternatives. We will discuss the current and forthcoming technology that may augment current scanning methods. This class will address the following questions: What is a reasonable expectation from a handheld scanner and return on investment? What is the workflow for maximizing the scanner’s use for as-built and quality assurance / quality control uses? How can we best capitalize on scanning at this scale? When is the right time to consider handheld versus other scanning technology? Where can this scanning method be most effective? This session features ReCap and Navisworks Manage.
