November 14, 2017 – 3DR has announced a partnership with Autodesk to integrate 3DR Site Scan with Autodesk BIM 360, the leading project management tool for virtual construction managers and field teams.
The partnership will allow entire project team including managers, engineers to superintendents to access drone data and use it in their day-to-day work.
According to Andy Leek, VDC Director at Paric:
“Site Scan makes it easy for us to collect and process accurate drone data. Now, with this BIM 360 integration, we can easily share it across our entire project team can get the full benefit this data provides. Site Scan has become the complete drone data platform for BIM 360 users.”
This gives Site Scan users three new capabilities:
1. Overlay up-to-date design files: Pull your CAD and PDF design files from BIM 360 into Site Scan and overlay them onto your orthomosaics, so you can compare design to reality and spot mistakes. If a design file changes in BIM 360 it will automatically update in Site Scan, giving you the confidence that you’re viewing the most up-to-date overlays at all times.
2. Share drone data with your team: Push your Site Scan drone data—orthomosaics, point clouds, digital elevation models, and more—into your BIM 360 account so they’re easily accessible in tools like Revit, BIM 360 Glue and Field, and more.
3. Solve problems in the field: Spot a problem on your jobsite that needs to be fixed? Create issues directly on your orthomosaic in Site Scan and push them to BIM 360 Field, making it easy to collaborate with your field personnel and resolve issues quickly and effectively.
