LAS VEGAS, NV, Jan 24, 2019 – Concrete contractors can now produce FFL reports in real-time from scan data loaded into Autodesk Navisworks software as a result of a product development partnership between ClearEdge3D and Rithm, the companies announced at World of Concrete.
This new version of Rithm reduces the time it takes to produce ASTM E1155 compliant FFL reports to less than 15 minutes after a pour. Users can find floor flatness and levelness mistakes in near real time from laser scan data and easily visualize high and low areas with elevation and deviation heat maps, contours and grids.
Rithm’s improved workflow also gives users the opportunity to perform FFL analysis in-house, which allows them to work with their own tools and team, therefore reducing their QA and reporting costs. Besides making dry concrete analysis faster and more insightful, contractors can also check wet concrete for deviations while it’s still workable. This new approach to FFL analysis allows them to reduce costly rework and identify mistakes faster.
“ClearEdge3D is thrilled to add Rithm to our lineup of solutions to help further the QA/QC process, focusing the benefits of Rithm’s FFL reporting and QA analyses directly in Navisworks,” said Kelly Cone, vice president of product management for ClearEdge3D. “The workflow created by Rithm cuts down time on waiting for scanning analysis, increasing productivity.”
ClearEdge3D is a global technology leader in the architectural/engineering/construction (AEC) industry, offering advanced software solutions that help firms model existing conditions and verify that recently completed work has been constructed correctly. The company’s EdgeWise software dramatically speeds labor-intensive 3D modeling workflows by utilizing advanced automated feature extraction and assistive modeling technology. Its Verity construction verification software compares point cloud data of recently completed work against a design or fabrication model, flagging any out-of-tolerance or poorly installed elements.
