Laser Scanning and Revit – What you NEED to Know

On this episode of BIM After Dark Live I am excited to have Matt Stachoni on as a special guest to talk about laser scanning!

I tend to get quite a few emails about either the process of laser scanning and creating a model from it or the process of using a point cloud in Revit. Matt is an expert in the area of laser scanning and is overseeing the scanning of a $1.5 billion airport project here in the Northeast… Yeah, that’s a lot of scanning…

Whether you are interested in getting into scanning yourself or find yourself using scans, this will be a must watch episode!

Some of the topics we will discuss (on top of your own questions!):

Laser scanning basics:
– Quick description of technology
– Typical classes of scanning hardware
– Resolution settings
– Targets / Registration

Use Cases:
– Historical Preservation
– Construction

Budget / Planning:
– Laser Scanning Execution Plan
– # Scanners, People, Computers
– Typical Scanning Workstation Needs
