Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Understand how to import and register scan data in ReCap
  • Explore point cloud utilities in AutoCAD, one of which will generate sliced sections of the point cloud
  • Explore workflows between ReCap, AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architecture, and Inventor to develop a 3D model of the facility
  • Discover how to place and author Assets into the Factory Design Utilities layout

Description

Description

Maintaining an accurate facility layout can a big challenge. The drawings are normally out of date, and it can be a time-consuming task to get the measurements and update the drawings. All of these tasks are typically low-priority activities for most companies. Capturing the reality of your facility will demonstrate a workflow for going from scans of a facility to a 3D model. The class will demonstrate how you can use ReCap software to generate a point cloud of the scan data. Then we'll use point cloud utilities in AutoCAD software to generate sections of the point cloud. Finally, we'll use Factory Design Utilities software in Inventor software to locate equipment in the facility.

Target Audience

Target Audience

This class is designed for AutoCAD and Inventor users that are responsible for maintaining facility layout documentation, or anyone that wants to leverage point clouds in their facility documentation workflow.
