Exploring Innovative Solutions in AEC: AR, VR, MR, gaming applications and beyond
December 9, 2020 | 2-3pm ET
Design and construction validation using full size immersion allows the first way to actually get a sense of a project and test systems without having a full-size mock-up built IRL. Yes, money can be saved at great value but some more important benefits are also had in employing a Virtual Practice; Better Work. The use of AR/VR for complex design projects can expose and reduce potential design flaws as well as convey difficult to comprehend design concepts to stakeholders.
From 2020 to 2021 and beyond: The merging of 3D, AEC, BIM and Geospatial
December 15, 2020 | 1:00 – 2:30 PM ET

Learn how to give proper access to multiple project participants all over the world, reducing silos and democratizing scan data with Cintoo Cloud’s mesh-based Web viewer. Learn more about connecting Cintoo Cloud to Autodesk BIM 360, which enables Scan & BIM workflows such as visual comparison and issue tracking.
Panel: How are DOT’s Using 3D Tools to Solve Infrastructure and Transportation Challenges
DOTs need to access the steep and potentially dangerous terrain in order to adequately map features and gather data to support design calculations, but they also need to proceed in a safe manner. Oftentimes, geo-professionals responding to slope failures do not have sufficient time or resources to charter aircraft or other specialty aerial mapping services to obtain the best design data. Inadequate reconnaissance information hinders planning for safe site access. A readily deployable, small, and cost-effective tool is needed in these instances.Join this discussion of latest precision measurement tools and platforms in use by leading DOTs, how they are being integrated for better project management and analytics.
Laser Scanning and 3D Building Information Modeling for Construction and Facilities Management Projects
This discussion will highlight how lidar data and imagery were used to create an accurate building information model that is currently being used for airport design, construction, and integration into their facilities management program. Visualization capabilities and survey-grade accuracies are some of the highlights of the developed building model and the presenters will explore how their solutions and workflows utilize these efficiencies to create real differences.
Based off the success and popularity of the our annual live “Product Preview” sessions at AEC Next and SPAR 3D! Want to hear about the newest 3D solutions? Curious to discover which innovations are redefining AEC workflows? Our Emerging Technology Showcase provides attendees with an easy way to get up to speed around the latest product launches and innovations throughout the space, featuring cutting edge video demos moderated by Editor Carla Lauter.
Digital Tools to Identify Construction Issues Before They Become Issues
With the advancements in digital construction technology, workflows targeting cost implication and potential rework in construction are not being widely adopted. Utilizing reality capture, along with other digital construction tools are estimated to reduce rework by 1-3%. Hundreds of billions of dollars are being spent yearly on construction rework that could be reduced and or eliminated. With today’s technology, understanding these workflows to identify issues before they become issues and achieving a zero-rework project can happen; it takes project collaboration and commitment.
The idea of a “digital twin” – a living, constantly updated and analytical representation of an asset, building or system – has been gaining momentum. As IoT sensor technologies improve, cloud computing becomes more robust, and companies realize the power of applying machine learning and AI, the future of the digital twin seems bright. Learn how a variety of structures from automotive manufacturing facilities, to oil & gas refineries, to a pro football stadium are using digital twins to create real efficiencies. The discussion will identify the tools used, challenges, value and what’s ahead.
Anyone working with 3D-imaging technology has figured out that customers see the most value in the identification of existing conditions. This is also known as providing “as-built services,” where you use 3D-capture technology to identify the topographic, structural, architectural, and/or MEP conditions. A panel of experts will discuss what it means to measure the value of such endeavors in more ways than one.
Aerial Imagery: A Rapidly Evolving Technology for CAD, BIM and GIS
