RocCity Revit User Group - May 2014 - Developing Revit and AutoCAD Models from 3D Laser Scans and Point Clouds

3D laser scanning and point clouds are relatively new to the building design and construction industry. Over the past several years there has been a convergence of hardware advances, software technologies, and scanning service providers that is making this process a very viable option for documenting existing building and site conditions.

During the presentation, we'll discuss the basics of laser scanning, then dive into the process for using the point cloud generated from the laser scan. Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD are now very compatible with point cloud data and there are a number of ways of creating geometry from the data captured. Some processes are very manual while others are automated. Come learn how you can transform those existing conditions into very accurate 3D models and reduce the number of trips to the jobsite.

RocCity Revit User Group - April 2014 - Model Based Quantity TakeOff

Model based quantity takeoff (QTO) is one of those primary advantages to using building information modeling (BIM) for your projects.  There are many methods and tools for extracting quantities from BIM models, but while estimators are warming up to relying more heavily on model-based quantities, 2D takeoff is still the norm.   

We'll provide an overview of these methods of model-based takeoff utilizing such tools as Autodesk Revit, Navisworks, Design Review, On-Screen, Assemble and Bluebeam Revu.  Through practice of these methods, hopefully you will each become more comfortable with the process recognize the value and start to utilize this workflow to identify quantities for all of your estimates.
