In a few weeks, I am speaking at a conference about the future of laser scanning in the design and construction world. The audience will be members of a top international construction firm that is very progressive in its use of BIM and 3D laser scanning, so it got me thinking about some of the […]
When we were asked to bring our booth and support the 2nd Annual Revit Technology Conference in Stone Mountain, Georgia, last week, I didn’t know what to expect. But I’m glad we went because we saw the future – and it’s very bright. For BIM managers and designers, this conference was a look through the […]
The truth is, scanning is the only cost-effective way to collect the existing world.
