Reality Computing for Construction

Construction Management

The range of technology available to AEC professionals is expanding and reality capture techniques are at the forefront. Reality computing for construction applications is the process of documenting the as-built conditions present on a site, to bring them into 3D modeling tools. Autodesk BIM solutions provide the tools to manage, edit and develop accurate as-built solutions in the BIM environment. Through this project we will explore multiple BIM-enabled reality capture tools including laser scanning and photogrammetry.

What you will learn

Discover how BIM-enabled reality capture techniques can provide accurate and efficient as-built documentation for a construction project. Historically, as-built documentation has been a printed drawing set which captures field conditions documented during field surveys. This can be a laborious and inaccurate process. In this project, you will be exposed to techniques that enable you to use laser scans and photographs, including those captured from unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), to document site conditions and develop accurate as-built BIM models.
