The digitization of construction is dependent on the development of 3D technologies. Many established companies and startups are endeavoring to take advantage of 3D capture, visualization and modeling technologies that go beyond creating 3D CAD models. From 3D scanning done by robots to software that can make 3D measurements from 2D pictures, this report discusses four trends in 3D AEC tech to keep your eye on.
For the construction industry, drone technology can help to drive decisions and complete tasks more quickly, with lower costs and increased safety. These factors are powerful ways to increase productivity.
Unfortunately, using a drone in the construction industry isn’t as simple as buying one and acquiring a software solution to plan automated missions. Before that, there are various subjects that need to be taken into consideration about which technology to use, its potential application, and its overall purpose.
As investment in AEC technology grows, we’re rapidly shifting from technology that is being tentatively tested to those that are being put to work in the field in every day use. What was once a wish is now a reality. Scanning systems, in particular, have evolved with features designed to streamline workflows, saving time via automatic registration or cloud processing. Utilizing more automation – even robots – and new ways of visualizing information makes 2020 feel like the future of AEC technology has arrived.
