Using digital workflows and 3D laser scanning technology from Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, the student lounge project called the Whirling Arrow at the School of Architecture at Taliesin in Arizona has quickly gone from an existing structure in disrepair to an accurate digital design that will soon be under construction. In a webinar on Tuesday, May 30, at 2 pm EDT, graduate student Jose Amaya will share his experience using laser scanning for data collection, integrating point clouds in design and discovering workflows that complement traditional architectural methods.

You’ll learn:

  • How easy it is to use reality capture and digital data with technologies like the BLK360 and Cyclone REGISTER 360
  • How to incorporate point cloud data into architectural workflows
  • How point cloud data can be used to inform the design process
  • How lessons learned from the Whirling Arrow project can improve future building construction projects

Brian Smith of Leica Geosystems, a construction technologist who assisted with the data capture, will share details about some of the cutting-edge advances that facilitate 3D building documentation.
