    This class will focus on how to leverage tools you probably already have access to in the Autodesk AEC Collection and Autodesk Construction Cloud to start processing, analyzing, and leveraging drone photogrammetry data to improve your construction processes. Once at scale, many companies will likely opt for a partner product purpose-built for this entire workflow, but it's crucial to get buy-in prior to making this investment. At BL Harbert International we found that the best way to accomplish this is by providing concrete examples company-wide of useful applications on our own projects. To achieve that we've leveraged several tools already at our disposal in the AEC Collection and Construction Cloud. This class will step through a workflow of processing imagery in Recap Photo, to then analyzing in either AutoCAD or Civil 3D, to finally sharing with stakeholders and making annotations in BIM 360 or Autodesk Build.

    Key Learnings

    • Process aerial imagery with Recap Photo
    • Use AutoCAD and Civil 3D tools for mesh, orthophoto, and point cloud analysis
    • Use annotation tools in BIM 360 and the hypermodel in Autodesk Build to highlight and share findings with stakeholders.
    • Practical advice for starting and scaling a drone program
