3D Robotics delivers drone-based solutions to engineering, construction and natural resources companies
Construction and Engineering
3DR uses drones to gather visual data on construction sites, but they needed a data collection tool to connect their sensors to clients’ Autodesk ReCap engines.
How they solved it with Forge.
Site Scan, 3DR’s aerial analytics platform delivers drone data from the job site to the Autodesk software suite, including A360 and BIM 360. Forge powers the creation of point clouds and meshes from drone photographs for downstream use including site visualization, engineering calculations, project progress tracking, safety analysis and more.
By leveraging Forge, 3DR was able to accelerate their development of Site Scan by connecting drone data with software in hours vs. days. This enabled them to focus their resources to powerful new real-time features that integrate with customers’ existing software systems.
