About this Course:
In this short course, we will illustrate how 3D laser scanning, point clouds, and BIM can be used to reduce risk and add value to projects in the building industry. Subject Matter Experts from the team at Existing Conditions will provide participants with the information they need to get the most of out of their as built’s and existing conditions surveys. They’ll address common questions and misconceptions related to the use of 3D laser scanning and BIM, while also providing a deep dive into the value of these resources. Course participants will complete this session with a thorough understanding of how to establish a mutual, accurate point of departure on their projects.
What you’ll learn:
- Discover the options that professionals have available to them to gather accurate data about a building, its systems, and its context.
- Learn how to create, use, and access point cloud data in a digital environment.
- Gain insight about the historical evolution of architectural drafting from hand-drawing to BIM.
- Comprehend the theory and process of building a model from point cloud data, as well as how BIM can be used across the lifecycle of a building.
