Times are tough, budgets are tight, and teams are lean. The past year has been full of heartache—especially for those working in the petrochemical field. Long gone are the days of $100 oil. Nonetheless, facilities are busy and business must continue. Maintaining facilities on a tighter budget means owners are looking for the best possible return on investment. Technology to the rescue! This class will welcome a variety of real-world stories about how engineering firms are benefiting from their investment in reality capture and Autodesk, Inc.’s, reality-computing workflows. Attendees will listen to their peers share stories about the latest trends for extracting value from point clouds in the plant environment and how it is saving their company money. Topics may include point clouds to fabrication, scanning for asset management, verifying new design in the as-built environment, and more. In addition, speakers will show practical demonstrations of how these workflows are accomplished in Autodesk software This session features AutoCAD Plant 3D and ReCap 360.
