Collapse Expand


The class will focus on the uptake and rise of laser scanning workflows in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry in the United Kingdom. We will discuss a variety of workflow options utilizing DWGŽ TrueView .dwg viewer data captured from live scan information and validation of the scan data into ReCap software, Revit software, and Navisworks project review software. The class will also delve into typical and best-practice workflows when it comes to using the scan data effectively on large-scale projects, as well as understanding how the use of the data can begin to replace traditional visualization methods when communicating ideas to clients and consultants through differing stages of projects. The class will enable you to realistically help your staff to utilize the scan data and effectively manipulate it to produce typical architectural diagrams and drawings.
