Using drones and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) on job sites to capture the existing conditions has gained a lot of popularity, thanks to cheaper equipment and a growing demand for accurate and up-to-date frequent surveys. ReCap software offers a complete set of tools to process UAV photos and to create 2D, 2.5D, and 3D deliverables that will be used in the Autodesk portfolio to extract the right information for the user. In this hands-on class, you will learn a complete process using ReCap in combination with InfraWorks software, AutoCAD Civil 3D software, and Revit software to extract various meaningful data from UAV photos, such as measurements (distances, surfaces, volumes), digital terrain model (DTM), BIM model, movies, virtual reality content, and so on.
