Reality Capture (also known as RC) is photogrammetry software which creates 3D models out of unordered photographs (terrestrial and/or aerial) or laser scans without seams. We use it primarily for As-Built Modeling and Site Surveys.
Scanning of existing buildings using highly sophisticated equipment and Drone Photogrammetry and or Terrestrial Scanning to develop as-built drawings and models that can be used to determine the integrity of the structures and facilitate major renovations. Using the newest, state-of-the-art Building Information Modeling (BIM) programs, these drawings are developed with a high degree of accuracy allowing edits and changes to be made in a fraction of the time previously required. Cadworks provided these services recently for the 150,000 S.F. Historic Macaulay Foundry in Berkeley, CA. The project required 990 scans performed over a six-week period. Specialty equipment used for the project included the Faro Focus X330 for interior data collection and the Inspire I Drone for exterior and roof data collection. Data was exported to Revit for the final model.
Cadworks is dedicated to understanding and servicing its clients’ needs and seeing their projects through to completion. Cadworks provides in-house staffing and off-site Microstation and AutoCAD services, including Plant 3D, Civil 3D, Revit, AECOSim. Above is an example of the Historic Macaulay Foundry modeled from laser scans.
