Description

Description

The United States Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) develops, manages, and protects western water resources for the United States. Built in an age of slide rules and drafting, the USBR's 492 dams and 53 power plants were each created from thousands of individual engineering drawings. These dams are critical infrastructure and will continue to serve the nation for centuries. Effective facility management requires new methods and technology. Using Autodesk software, and with assistance from Autodesk, the USBR set out to create unified intelligent models of Glen Canyon dam and power plant. The use of laser scanning, photogrammetry, CAD, Building Information Modeling (BIM), and SONAR enabled the creation of multidisciplinary, comprehensive 3D models. The data and models will be used for design, operations and maintenance, security, education, and visualization. This project serves as a prototype to develop expertise, best practices, guidelines, and procedures with applicability for many industries. This session will discuss the objectives, procedures, and project status.

David Dreffs

I have a passion for Reality Capture and Design. During my professional carrier I have worked to stay on the bleeding edge of software and technology. I consider myself fortunate to work for a company that promotes integration between products. At Autodesk I help lead the effort in implementing the latest Reality Capture and Factory Design technology. Using these different types of tech we capture existing conditions for planning- open land for development, factories for retrofit, bridges and dams for concrete replacement, substations and waste water plants for upgrades and many more. By having Reality Capture information it increases our accuracy on projects, the richness of data reduces time and issues during a retrofit project. In collaboration with Autodesk's software programs I help integrate workflows to decrease cost and increase efficiency on major instillation projects.
