Autodesk University

Dates: 18 Jun, 2019 - 19 Jun, 2019
Location: The Dock, Tobacco Quay, Wapping Lane London E1W 2SF United Kingdom

Autodesk University brings 1800 visitors from 49 countries to discuss new technology and connect design, manufacturing and construction industries. Learn how to solve your design and engineering challenges, help your teams increase efficiency, reach new markets, and win more business.

A programme tailored for AEC, Design & Manufacturing, Media & Entertainment professionals will explore how Connected BIM could extend the project lifecycle beyond construction to operation, learn more about end-to-end product development as well as let you discover how contracting and construction processes are being transformed.

Visit the exposition, hear the industry talks delivered by Autodesk thought leaders, connect with like-minded professionals and participate in social events!

Attend a session on the 18th of June led by our BIM Expert, Chris Palmer:

Due to the unique complexity of heavy industry environments, laser scanning has become the staple starting point for the record of as-built conditions to enable engineers and technicians to begin to make sense of the projects they are presented with. Autodesk ReCap and the point cloud support within the AutoCAD environment have been instrumental in enabling designers to begin their work with an accurate understanding of existing conditions; however, the conversion to an intelligent pipework model or steelwork fabrication drawing has remained a highly manual process. Using the point cloud extraction functions available with the FARO As Built for AutoCAD plugin, this Hands-on Lab will take attendees through a step-by-step process of managing the data from heavy industry environments and converting this into intelligent Plant 3D and Advanced Steel geometry. Specific tools will focus on pipework geometry extraction, steelwork geometry extraction, tie-in point extraction, mapping spec sheets, isometric creation, tank volumes and analysis, and much more.
