Description

Description

3D scanning technology is quickly becoming more affordable and mainstream the way 2D scanning was 20 years ago. In this session, you'll learn how to jumpstart your designs by referencing existing conditions into your AutoCAD drawings. See how point cloud data is captured in the field and easily processed for access in AutoCAD software using ReCap Pro software. Explore some of the simple ReCap tools for navigating and editing point cloud files. Learn how to bring that point cloud data into AutoCAD to accurately measure, create, and document your new designs. Throughout this session, we'll share real-world examples of how you can use this technology to persuade stakeholders, save time, and minimize costs. 3D scanning is the future-and the future is inevitable. Don't be left in the past.

Target Audience

Target Audience

AutoCAD users that are interested in moving forward with more advanced technologies, moving into 3D, or just saving time and ensuring accuracy by captuing existing conditions for reference and design.
