Capitalizing on the Power of Laser Scanning for Highly Accurate Modeling
Autodesk University
Collapse Expand


In this presentation we will discuss the benefits of utilizing laser scanning and point-cloud data on projects for making better-informed decisions during the design, preconstruction, and execution processes. We will also discuss how you can use this data to produce highly accurate models and the value this brings to clients.

Key Learnings

  • Discover what laser scanning and point cloud files are, as well as what you should expect with this type of data.
  • Discuss how this type of data can be utilized in viewing software for determining deficiencies in existing systems or structural components before modeling begins, and identifying areas that may need remediation before any new construction can start.
  • Explore the use and benefits of laser scanning for 2 specific project types (renovation, restoration, remodel, and addition projects; and new construction).
  • Discover how scanning and point cloud data can help to create accurate as-built models for handover to your client, and learn the various ways your client(s) can use that information (including FM/CMMS use for routine maintenance, and emergency management and emergency scenario training in VR with staff and first responders).
