Join Autodesk leaders Elmer Bol (Reality Capture Product Director) and Dr. Aaron Morris (Senior Product Manager, Reality Capture, IPG), who will preview a new end-to-end workflow featuring Autodesk® ReCap™ that will help streamline the Reality Capture Experience. Autodesk® ReCap™ delivers powerful workflow to create 3D data from laser scans and captured photos. Seamlessly integrated with Autodesk® Design and Creation suites, Autodesk® ReCap™ makes it easy to organize, visualize and clean massive datasets captured from reality while Autodesk® ReCap™ Photo helps users create high-resolution textured 3D models from photos using the power of cloud computing. Join us to find out more!

Join us, online, for our discussion webinar with Q and A at 2:30pm GMT on Thursday 22nd November
Join Mark Hansford, Deputy Editor of NCE and Jack Strongitharm, BIM industry expert and Autodesk Transportation Industry Solutions Manager, for a look at how BIM is helping civil engineers tackle the follow challenges that many of us often face:
You need to balance a number of objectives such as safety, cost, environmental impact, client standards, and more. This requires time-consuming manual validation of designs against local standards and constraints.
Design changes happen every day. With every change, engineering teams can spend hours updating affected parts of the project.
Analysis is often disconnected from design, and evaluating the impact and feasibility of changes can be time-consuming and lead to missed deadlines.
Delivering construction documentation for a transportation project has traditionally been a time-consuming, error-prone task.
Powerful visuals are a key component in creating competitive differentiation and more quickly capturing the necessary project approvals. But communicating project proposals and design intent to stakeholders can be time-consuming and is often disconnected from the design process.
Register now to watch as Autodesk and NCE consider and address these challenges and understand how Autodesk® BIM for Infrastructure can help you create better performing designs in a fast-paced, budget-constrained environment.
This webinar will also have a question and answer session which will provide you with a chance to give your view and enter the BIM debate!
Maximizing the Benefits of Field Management and Tablet Computers in Construction An independent study of 15 Skanska projects
For almost a decade, Skanska, a global top 20 general contractor, has been at the forefront in exploring the use of tablet computers for construction. In the past 3 years the firm has moved from exploration to explosion, as hundreds of projects around the world are leveraging Field management software from Vela Systems (now Autodesk® BIM 360 Field) and tablet computers to help drive programs for quality, safety, commissioning, Field BIM™ and access to construction documentation.
This explosion of usage is fertile ground for research: What trends can be seen across multiple projects? For example, what factors contribute to projects getting the most value from the technology and thus create the most value for the owner?
This complementary webinar will feature Brian Fitch, Project Controls Director at Skanska USA Building and Michael Moran, a Masters graduate of the Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. Michael’s peer-reviewed research will be presented wherein he evaluated the benefits of Vela Systems field management software and tablet computers on 15 Skanska projects around the globe. Drivers of success will be examined and recommendations will be presented on the best ways to implement these technologies going forward.

We are going to be showing some cool borehole and geology work live on the webinar so if your project involve geotechnical data you should sign up to see what is possible with AutoCAD Civil 3D and other products
Despite the name of our blog being “from the ground up” we are doing a free webinar next week all about everything “from the ground down!”
I will be presenting with Gary Morin and Roger Chandler from Keynetix at an online webinar entitled “The Role of Geotechnical Data in Building Information Modelling”
This online seminar reviews the current BIM implementations on major infrastructure projects in the UK and overseas and reviews how the inclusion of the geotechnical data in the BIM model can improve the model’s usefulness and the decision making process. We are going to be showing some cool borehole and geology work live on the webinar so if your project involve geotechnical data you should sign up to see what is possible with AutoCAD Civil 3D and other products The seminar will conclude with a set of recommendations that, if adopted, could allow the engineering design team to produce innovative geotechnical systems and improve the cost-effectiveness of construction.
