    In this class, megaconstruction firm Saudi Binladin Group (SBG) will share 2 years of challenges faced using innovative technology to cut through one of the longest and most complicated processes in construction projects. We will discuss real-time benefits to project time and accuracy of as-built development in this $1 billion project. From this experience of using reality capture technology and Autodesk applications and how they relate to 3D scan technology, SBG has developed a successful methodology of project handover and as-built by reconstructing an intelligent model out of 3D reality-capture point clouds. In this class, SBG will show workflow from points capture to as-built record Models and Sheets. SBG will also provide the pros and cons of each step. Over a 2-years journey, SBG used different Autodesk software such as Revit software and ReCap software, and also different third-party tools and service providers.
