Building information modeling (BIM) is experiencing a revolution in the construction industry as project teams increasingly strive to adopt a lifecycle process that brings reality into BIM and BIM into reality. Through innovative hardware and software integrations, today’s construction professionals have faster and easier access to high-accuracy data throughout the entire construction process. At Autodesk University 2015, Dec. 1-3 at The Venetian in Las Vegas, Leica Geosystems will show how workflow solutions developed in collaboration with Autodesk bring BIM full circle for a holistic building construction approach.
Leica Geosystems, Inc., the pioneer of measurement technologies, and Autodesk Inc., a leader in 3D design, engineering, and entertainment software, have formed a collaboration to provide wider access to premier reality-capture and BIM-to-field layout solutions for professionals involved in laser scanning, building construction layout and related markets. The alliance creates new opportunities for professionals working with Autodesk software to leverage the high-accuracy data from Leica Geosystems’ sensors directly within popular Autodesk authoring tools. Multiple technology integrations are being explored as both companies look for ways to create synergies that will benefit their joint customers.
