GraphicSpeak » Autodesk acquires Allpoint for 3D LIDAR expertise | Plant Design and Retrofit Construction | Scoop.it

Autodesk continues its investment in Reality Capture; other recent acquisitions include Alice Labs and RealViz. Autodesk defines Reality Capture as the practice of creating digital models of physical objects and spaces using photography, laser scanning, and other technologies.

Allpoint brings several significant pieces of the puzzle to Autodesk, including large-scale 3D scan data registration, an area of significant research focus but little commercial application.

Ken Markowitz's insight:

Thebiggest obstacles touse using point clouds is the question of how do I integrate this intomy current workflow ?

AECbytes Building the Future article on Lean Construction -- Discrete-Event Simulation for MEP Renovation

 

....a unique approach to project phasing for a large-scale MEP renovation of a medical research facility, Old Jordan Hall, at the University of Virginia. In this project, the model was employed as more than a strictly visual tool or geometry-based clash detection tool. By adding the component of time to the 3D model, at specific events during each phase and sub-phase of the basement mechanical room renovation, the model served as a true 4D coordination model, allowing the construction team to make informed anticipatory decisions....
