I am at the SPAR Conference in Houston this week. I thought you might like to hear some news about Revit 2012 and it’s support of Point Cloud data. Navisworks seems to be the preferred solution for the Construction market because it supports so many file formats as well as point cloud data. The link below is from a blog post on sparpointgroup.com.
I compiled a short list of software manufacturers offering point cloud software. The race is on to see who can come up with the best modeling tools to transform a point cloud into intelligent 3d data.
SPAR2010 3d laser scanning conference. A whole new world of business opportunities.
I attended the SPAR2010 conference in Houston last week. Terrestrial LiDAR is where I see new opportunities for traditional survey firms. The process piping, mining, and transportation sectors are all becoming aware of the benefits of this technology as well as the architectural, archeaological, and forensic science professions. This is your chance to get on the bus and get a good seat. The win-win benefits for all stakeholders are real and measurable.
The key benefits of 3d laser scanning are the big cost savings, time savings, higher quality deliverables and better site safety aspects. Learn more about this growing industry at http://www.sparllc.com/. Also check out LiDAR News.
