BERKELEY, CA, Nov 15, 2017 – 3DR, makers of Site Scan, the leading drone data platform for construction and engineering professionals, today announced an integration with Autodesk BIM 360, the leading project management tool for virtual construction managers and field teams.
With this one-of-a-kind partnership, made possible through the Autodesk Forge platform, it’s easier than ever for entire project teams—including project managers, engineers, subcontractors, superintendents, and more—to access drone data and use it in their day-to-day work.
3DR will be demonstrating the integration at booth #C610 at Autodesk University in Las Vegas, November 14-16, 2017.
This integration gives Site Scan users three new capabilities:
- 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.
- 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. Instead of spending time moving large files between each platform, now you can do it with a click in Site Scan.
- 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.
“Site Scan makes it easy for us to collect and process accurate drone data,” said Andy Leek, VDC director at Paric. Now, with this BIM 360 integration, we can easily share it across our entire project team, so they can get the full benefit this data provides. Site Scan has become the go-to drone data platform for BIM 360 users.”
“Now, project teams can have a single source of truth for their drone data and project files,” said Chris Anderson, CEO of 3DR. “This will improve communication and quality control on-site, and simplify the ways our customers share and access drone data.”
