July Technical Webinar >> Reality Capture Overview for Owners and Their Teams

July Technical Webinar >> Reality Capture Overview for Owners and Their Teams

The webinar will take place July 14, 2020 at 12:00 PM CST for 1 PDH.

>> Register now for this ASCE Texas Section’s Technical Webinar.

This webinar will address what owners and their teams need to understand about reality capture when requesting proposals from reality capture providers. It will go through the complete scope of reality capture topics, including premobilization, mobilization, field work, registration processing, delivery of point cloud data, and “Scan-to-BIM Modeling.” It will share lessons learned from planning and scoping projects as large as a four million (4+ M) square foot laser scan project to as small as a one-hour mechanical room scan, and everything in between.

Reality capture includes laser scanning, among other forms of measurement, for as-built documentation. Common tools and equipment used for reality capture include, but are not limited to laser scanners, robotic total stations, along with tablets, and point layout tools.

The session will introduce specifications developed by the BIMForum Reality Capture Taskforce. The specification developed by The Taskforce serves as a reference or guideline that enables professionals in the Architectural, Engineering, Construction, Owner, and Facility Management (AECO-FM) Industry to specify how to use reality capture to represent and document existing conditions.

Learning Objectives:

  • How premobilization and field work conditions effect scoping reality capture
  • Registration and deliverables for Owners
  • Requesting and reviewing proposals for reality capture
