This class will compare the process of building a Revit software model from reality capture 3D laser scans versus building one from historic plans. Often clients assume that modeling from a plan is faster and cheaper than sending a scanning crew to the site. We look at several case studies and compare the numbers to show how and why 3D laser scanning is less expensive, faster, and more accurate.
- Learn how to compare the costs and benefits of creating as-built models based on 3D laser scans versus existing 2D drawings
- Discover the skills, technology, and time requirements for creating an as-built model based on 3D scans versus existing 2D drawings
- Understand when scanning to create an as-built model would be feasible and cost-effective, and in which projects
- Understand a general overview of 3D laser scanning and how to use it with the Building Design Suite
