Nary a mention of Scanning or Point Clouds

Post by Scott »

Here is an interesting, well illustrated article for Revit 2022 and Civil 3D users. One would think that civil, site and landscape architecture tools and workflows would have at least a nod to 'Reality Capture', but that's not the case...~S ... civil.html APRIL 27, 2021
Revit 2022, with Civil 3D and Infraworks, for Civil and Site Design
When it comes to the Autodesk ecosystem, those involved in designing buildings tend to know a lot about the Revit-centric offerings. However, stepping just outside the building, and considering civil, site and landscape architecture tools and workflows, that same group might not be as familiar with some of the newer options for these design tasks. This is not entirely surprising, as a lot of these tasks are not always performed by architects, MEP, or structural engineers. The goal of this article is to offer a high-level overview of important options to help bridge the gap in some areas, and offer up new solutions to previously overwhelming tasks one might wish to perform in Revit to produce high fidelity site models. With this information, teams can improve collaboration and enhance model fidelity across a project’s design team.

The topics that will be covered in this article include:

AutoCAD Civil 3D
BIM 360 Collaborate Pro
Published Toposurface
Round trip coordinates
Bridge and rail design
Preliminary topography
Link Toposurface
FOREground for Revit, by ParallaxTeam
Let’s dig in and take a closer look at each of these topics.
