What’s the Difference Between 3D Laser Scanning and Photogrammetry? premium
It’s hard to imagine a world without digital. But as you look around you, much of the physical world was designed and constructed using traditional 2D blueprints and is yet to be captured in a digital format. This creates a challenge for AEC professionals to incorporate these as-built designs into re-build or renovation projects. Traditional […]

Video: The Pitfalls of a Non-Digital Design Workflow premium
Whether you’re a civil engineer, CAD manager, or anyone working on a digital design project, one thing is certain – you’re never the sole collaborator in the process. Contractors, AEC firms, field personnel, even facilities managers, have their hands in the mix too. And that creates a problem for version control and the potential for […]

Mastering Civil 3D’s Intersection Wizard to Create a 4-Way Intersection premium
Civil 3D contains many engineering tools for roadway design. One of these tools is the Intersection wizard. The wizard walks the user step by step through the intersection design process and parametrically designs three or four way intersections. In addition to intersection design, the wizard defines widening for incoming, outgoing, or both lane types. This article describes the use of the intersection wizard to create a four way intersection that maintains each road’s crown elevation.

7 Do’s and Don’ts for a Realistic BIM Implementation premium
In a recent guest article, Bryan Cowles, an Applications Specialist at IMAGINiT Technologies, observed that while more and more government agencies are moving ahead and incorporating Building Information Modeling (BIM) into their workflows, “…some are yet to be convinced of the benefits that an intelligent model can provide.” In his article - Teardown or Retrofit: A BIM Evaluation Gives the Answer - Bryan goes on to provide an excellent example of the time and cost savings achieved by retrofitting two existing structures into one larger structure, as opposed to going the demolition route – thanks to a BIM-based feasibility study. A study which also won over a team of doubtful engineers who thought demolition was the best option.

Teardown or Retrofit: A BIM Evaluation Gives the Answer premium
Numerous government agencies are moving ahead by incorporating the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process into their workflow, but some are still yet to be convinced of the benefits that an intelligent model can provide. Recently, we assisted a public sector client faced with a unique challenge; they had to decide whether to retrofit two existing structures into one or demolish both and build a new structure. Using the BIM process, we were able to help them identify substantial cost and time savings by changing the direction of the project from demolition and rebuild, to a retrofit.
