Direct Dimensions: Leveraging 3D Scanning Technologies to Document AEC Existing Conditions

About this event

Adoption of reality capture as the best way to achieve existing conditions documentation is growing every year. Even if you’re not employing it yourself, chances are someone associated with a current or future architectural project is. This course will teach the basics of how the equipment works, and how reality capture and the digital twin is being utilized today in nearly every stage of a construction project as well as where it’s going in the future. The instructor will also discuss integration with other emerging tech like drones, VR/AR, 3D printing, and CNC machine fabrication. Attendees will receive 1 AIA CEU credit.
