• A Powerful Tool That Is Transforming Construction Project Management

    Every construction project is unique. At each phase, challenges can emerge that put the entire project at risk of schedule delays and budget overruns. These issues can be avoided through timely and effective communication, but achieving this goal is often elusive. Base planning documents may be flawed or inaccurate; coordination is often lacking during the …   Read More

  • New Laser Scanner Redefines Democratization of 3D

    November 15, 2016 – At Autodesk University 2016, Leica Geosystems and Autodesk announced an innovation that ushers in a new era of 3D reality capture. The new Leica BLK360  imaging laser scanner is so small and light that it fits in a typical messenger bag and can be carried almost anywhere. At the touch of a …   Read More

  • Video: The Benefits of BIM-to-Field Robotic Construction Layout

    From MEP to concrete construction, robotic total station layout provides substantial gains in accuracy and productivity. Watch the video to see how a fully digital process reduces rework and increases profitability.   Read More

  • Video: Reality Capture for Pre-Design As-Builting

    Starting with insufficient documentation on a renovation or retrofit project can lead to “designing in” invisible constructibility issues. Capturing digital as-built measurements before construction starts can completely eliminate these issues, thereby avoiding change orders, rework, and schedule delays. Watch the video to see how laser scanning reality capture provides a solution.   Read More

  • Video: Combining Layout And Flatness Scanning

    Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to perform flatness scanning on the fly during field layout? A scanning total station makes it possible. Watch the video to see how advanced hardware and software add intelligence to construction for more accurate layout, faster flatness analysis and improved elevation mapping.   Read More

  • A Better Way to Use Point Clouds in AEC Projects

    Laser scanning helps lower building contractor risks by ensuring as-built drawings are accurate and by exposing any inaccuracies early in the process, before they turn into change orders during construction. One area where contractors increasingly want to use point clouds is in the QC/QA process. Scanning the real-world construction site and comparing the point cloud data with the …   Read More
