This class will cover an introduction of laser scanning, including time and cost of performing the scan; how to autoregister scans using ReCAP software; and the usage of the scan data for design assistant, construction quality control, and operation and maintenance. We will use educational, theme park, and airport projects as case studies to illustrate the benefits of using laser scanning.
- Discover the cost and time to perform laser scanners
- Learn how to apply laser scanning for surveying, quality control, and as-built documents
- Learn how to use ReCap for scan registration, model generation, measurements, and markups
- Learn how to use laser scan data with Revit models and Navisworks models
With over 5 years of experience in the design and construction industry, Zhuting “Claire” Mao has been instrumental in the successful completion of numerous high-profile projects. Claire is a key member of the virtual design and construction (VDC) department at Balfour Beatty. Claire is experienced in utilizing Building Information Modeling (BIM) and technology including Virtual Reality, laser scanning and photogrammetry in project pursuits, design assistance, site logistics, construction coordination, and 4D animations. She takes her experience even further with the creation of coordination plans, teaming agreements and co-location strategies for BIM implementation from design to preconstruction and through closeout.
35+ years of experience in Design and Construction industry, Architectural and Civil Engineering background, trained in old school techniques (T square, triangles, lead pencil on vellum, ink on mylar, and various artistic media forms). Jumped into the 'new' CAD bandwagon when it was in its infancy, experimenting with a variety of software seeking for the most appropriate to leap forward in our competitive Design industry at the time, ranging from DataCAD, Microstation, AutoCAD. Developed useful lisp routines, detailing processes and graphic standards during the time span I worked for different Architectural firms in Southern California. <br/><br/>In 1990 I was exposed to parametric 3D geometry for the first time, using ArchiCAD. Around this same period, I started working as Construction Administrator. It took me several years to successfully implement software that truly assist the Design/Construction business, it's called now: BIM/VDC process.
4 years in the industry, 3 years with Balfour Beatty, Jenny Yuan has served and supported Balfour Beatty Construction in the BIM/VDC technologies & strategies execution through out project life cycle. Her major role covers 3D Modeling, 3D Coordination, 4D Simulation, Model Quantification, Laser Scan and BIM training. Championing laser scan applications and research in Florida division, Jenny applies laser scan work in site planing, as-built capture, as well as project QA/QC.
