Description

Reality capture data digitally connects engineers with the building site before the project even starts. The context it provides is crucial for everyone involved, from architects to facility managers. This course, Preparing Reality Capture Data for BIM, will help you to understand and use the different kinds of data formats used for reality capture today. First, you'll learn how laser scanning and photogrammetry work. Next, you'll learn about automatic and manual 3D reconstruction of images. Finally, you'll cover how to prepare 3D laser scanner point cloud data for 3D modeling software. At the end of this course, you'll understand what reality capture data formats to use and when, and you'll be able to prepare them for BIM environments. Software required: Autodesk Recap 360.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Dejan, and welcome to my course on Preparing Reality Capture Data for BIM, or Building Information Modeling. I'm an architect and a BIM enthusiast. This course will show you how things around us get measured these days, especially in the building industry, and not just any other old-fashioned way, but in 3D with old tools like digital cameras and with new ones like 3D laser scanners. By the end of this course, you'll know how to make digital replicas of things around you from small ones like your mobile phones, to huge ones like city blocks. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic concepts that apply to any of the 3D modeling tools popular today. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Preparing Reality Capture Data for BIM, or Building Information Modeling, here at Pluralsight.
