From Point Cloud to Terrain and Beyond
11:45am - 12:45pm
About the Course
This session is for Civil Engineers and Architects who want to learn more about utilizing point cloud data to generate topography and BIM objects for high-quality, detailed models. This session will help you understand data-collection techniques but will focus on the workflow after data has already been collected.
Challenges we’ll address
Difficulty verifying and understanding existing conditions and as-built assets
Working in silos with different software and data between teams
Gain more insight into your projects & make better decisions
Work with accurate digital models to reduce errors
Streamline workflows by integrating all your design tools
Adding drones or laser scanners to your workflow can increase productivity in every phase of your project from surveying, all the way to completion by capturing high-quality, detailed models of real-world assets and existing conditions.
In this session, you will walk through typical workflows that take drone and laser scanner data to generate topography in Civil 3D. You will also learn how ReCap Pro and InfraWorks fit into the workflow to consume and create accurate data from point clouds and communicate with stakeholders.
Evaluating Civil 3D and Infraworks for model creation
