This class will cover a Reality Computing Solution that uses the combination of AutoCAD Civil 3D software, Revit software, and Inventor software as a bridge between realty capture and 3D printing. We will also cover the way that this technology changes how projects are communicated and built. There is a big movement happening in the construction industry for the use of these models on projects in initial planning and as a submittal requirement. Come and learn how the process increases awareness, safety, and accuracy.
- Learn how to use AutoCAD Civil 3D software, Revit software, and Inventor software for 3D scanning to 3D printing applications
- Gain an understanding of the software systems used in a Reality Computing Solution for industrial 3D-printed models for planning
- Obtain an understanding of how to go from industrial reality capture to industrial 3D printing
- Learn how to use 3D CAD and 3D printing for communication tools on industrial projects
Sean Finn is a partner of F3 & Associates, Inc. He has been in the 3D-scanning reality capture field for years, and he has filed numerous patents. He has brought value to F3's clients by developing a workflow that combines traditional land surveying, 3D laser scanning, 3D CAD modeling, and 3D printing. The company has over 50 employees and is located in California's San Francisco Bay Area. Sean is an instructor for the land surveyor apprenticeship and gives instruction in specialty courses in 3D scanning technology. He has spoken for both Trimble Navigation, Ltd., and Leica Geosystems on the subject of inventive laser scanning in conferences around the world. Sean's 3D scanning experience is extensive, and he currently oversees 5 3D scanning crews, a reverse engineering team, 2 metrology crews, and 12 land surveying crews, with clients such as Google, Shell Oil Company, Chevron Corporation, Apple Inc., and the Walt Disney Company.
