Presenter: Mr. Kurt Rasmussen

Leverage Reality Modeling in your BIM productions
Runtime: 34 minutes

Join industry expert, Kurt Rasmussen, as he demonstrates how simple photos and/or point clouds can be used to better define your building environment.

Using imagery from drones, handheld cameras, or your smart phones, ContextCapture enables you to quickly generate 3D models to enhance your BIM productions.

In this presentation, you will learn how to:

  • Create a reality mesh in ContextCapture from imagery captured onsite
  • Consume your reality meshes in design applications such as AECOsim Building Designer
  • Extract features from your reality mesh to integrate into your BIM model
  • Enliven your 3D model using LumenRT for visual presentations
