4-Step Workflow for Turning Photos into a 3D Model and Base Plan

Presenter: Mr. Chris Skorny

Reducing Survey Data by Using Photographs for Precise 3D Models
Subtitles are supported in the following languages:

Runtime: 20 minutes

The professionals at CEDARVILLE Engineering Group, LLC have developed a 4-step reality modeling workflow to generate an accurate 3D reality mesh with ContextCapture.

Join Chris Skorny, 3D Modeling Specialist and UAS Pilot at CEDARVILLE Engineering Group, as he demonstrates the process for creating base plans using a 3D reality mesh from digital photographs and old survey data to support planning, design and maintenance.

A key to the success of this workflow was the precision of the model achieved through digital photos tied to ground control points. The process saved time, generated instant value, and gave the engineers a true 3D model for planning and design.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Create a 3D model utilizing ContextCapture and edit in MeshLAB
  • Create the surface utilizing Bentley Descartes and InRoads
  • Create and finalize a base topo file utilizing Bentely Descartes and InRoads
  • Create and finalize a base plan utilizing InRoads and QGIS
