In this class you will learn how to capitalize on scan data collected from a scanner to help validate existing-conditions data and provide the basis for your design process. Incorporating scan technology and total station, see how the raw scan data is registered in ReCap software utilizing geolocation control points from the field. We will then evaluate the data and prep it to be passed up to InfraWorks 360 software for further analysis, such as placement of roads, bridges, and surfaces. After completing the analysis, see how you can extract actual design data from the InfraWorks software model to further the design process within AutoCAD Civil 3D software. Finally, see how designers and engineers can begin to capitalize on this data for surfaces, alignments, and site planning.

I am a BIM Solutions Consultant with MasterGraphics Inc. based out of Madison, WI. My current focus however is providing onsite BIM consulting for some of the nation's top integrated architecture, engineering and planning firms in Milwaukee.I have 19+ years of experience in the AEC industry. 15 of which were with a fully integrated healthcare design/build organization. I also spent my college breaks working in the field which has proved to be some of my most invaluable experience.I have supported BIM/VDC Technologies as they relate to Architectural Design, Interior Design, Construction Documentation, MEP and Structural Engineering, as well as Construction.I have developed training on all flavors of Revit, AutoCAD, Civil 3D, Autodesk Design Review and Bluebeam Revu.I enjoy researching, developing and teaching applications and processes that will improve operational efficiencies. But simply put I enjoy helping others succeed.
