Do you need to show detailed site conditions or verify site grading? Learn how you can capture reality with a 3D laser scan, and align the data with actual survey control points, as well as use the point cloud as a source for further exploration, validation, and analysis in AutoCAD Civil 3D software and beyond. Georeferenced reality captures (point clouds) can be brought in AutoCAD Civil 3D software to not only visualize existing conditions, but to create surfaces of existing conditions. Imagine being able to verify the volume of a newly constructed detention pond down to a few cubic yards—not just from some random blob of points, but from data that fits into your construction documentation exactly. Going beyond the math, these you can use georeferenced point clouds in Navisworks software and InfraWorks software to visualize what was, what is, and what could be. This session features AutoCAD Civil 3D and InfraWorks 360. AIA Approved

Dave began his search for CAD enlightenment in the civil engineering world, drawing up mortgage surveys about 25 years ago. From there, he switched over to a CAD manager position and then to IT manager, then started working with an Autodesk reseller about ten years ago. His computer science degree and IT background have helped him along the way with customizing and implementing unique solutions for over a dozen years. <br/><br/>Although his family still doesn’t know how to explain what he does, Dave has been working at Repro Products (an Autodesk reseller) as a Civil Application Engineer and Autodesk Certified Instructor to help companies with their Autodesk implementation and training needs.
