1 DEMYSTIFYING LARGE POINT CLOUD DATA SETS FOR SIMPLE INTEGRATION ON COMPLEX PROJECTS Mark LaBell Jr – Technical Leader, SSOE Group

2 Project Execution

3 Where are we now? Prior to May 2014 few projects were scanned Past 10 months we have spent > $0.5MM USD on scanning facilities for our clients Over 50 projects have been scanned since May 2014 Construction value > $750MM USD

4 What changed?

5 Applications used NAVISWORKS REVITPLANT 3D CIVIL 3D KUBIT POINTSENSE PLANT MICROSTATION V8i INVENTOR POINTOOLS RECAP/RECAP 360

6 So how do we get data to another office and most importantly fast?

7 Storage Setup Large projects > 50GB users have 2 nd HDD (SSD) with a robocopy routine to mirror network – Robocopy routine is specific to each project Small projects < 50GB users point directly to network drive Both drives have the same map IE. P:\client1\project1

8 Storage Setup cont. DFS is utilized to create a point cloud directory in each office – If local P:\ doesn’t exist then failover to closest office Robocopy routine is run in server task manager to sync data between offices that need data ReCap 360 utilized for non-modeling staff and project stakeholders

9 Simple Network Diagram Large Projects > 50GB *Data is copied between offices via robocopy during off hours

10 Simple Network Diagram Small Projects < 50GB *Data is copied between offices via robocopy during off hours

11 How to make a large project small… Always edit data on local hard drive, NEVER edit on a network Make sure that you have a SSD – Single largest performance increase with minimal capital investment. Make sure Ortho is set in ReCap Always do editing in unified data set

12 How to make a large project small… Export data as is when you get spinning wheel of death Have two computers to post process data For tips to utilize ReCap on a remote desktop refer to handout

13 Laser Scans Pre Edit

14 Laser Scans Post Edit

15 Demo Plans/2D References

16 +/- of RCP files with Regions + Saves time for exporting each region - Navis and Revit do not support regions + Regions can control visibility in AutoCAD and ReCap - Regions are a confusing concept for the non- ReCap user. - Regions still process data while loading, therefore they don’t reduce model load times

17 Tips for Referencing RCS data Do breakdown scans based on sheet breakdown and S.O.W. – Minimize crop regions for point clouds, performance is drastically decreased in Revit model Create a work set for PointCloud models Create a master NWF for point clouds only

18 RECAP DEMO

19 Planning for Reality Capture

20 Reality Capture Spec Define processes of your firm – How you use the data including examples – Minimum requirements for good data acquisition Define project S.O.W. Send 2D docs and pictures from site visit to vendor – Narrative of each attachment is crucial for good scope definition. Define scanning service requested – Pre Demo, Post demo, As-built, Slab Flatness, Site Survey, GPR

21 Reality Capture Spec cont. Define the scanning area – Interior, Exterior, Roof, Above ceiling Declare safety requirements Declare deliverables and tolerances of registration – File formats, file transfer method, be sure to request raw data
