COMPACT, HIGH DENSITY 3D MOBILE MAPPING SYSTEM The IP-S3 mobile mapping system offers high density, high precision, point clouds combined with high resolution panoramas from a system that is smaller, lighter and easier to handle. IP-S3's positioning system is an integration of an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), GNSS receiver (GPS and GLONASS) and a vehicle odometer. It provides precise positioning and attitude in a dynamic environment. The rotating LiDAR sensor captures the environment with a rate of 700,000 pulses per second. During each rotation, the 32 internal lasers cover the full 360 degrees around the system, each from a slightly different viewing angle. This minimizes gaps in the point cloud which arise from obstacles or dead-angles and removes the need to install multiple scanners. IP-S3’s six-lens digital camera system provides 360 degree high resolution spherical images that allow for easy feature recognition. Mobile Master Office software handles all post processing trajectories and geo-referencing scans and images. Integrated turnkey solution Ultra compact design Multiple lasers minimize scanning shades Unparalleled ease of use Factory calibrated Full integration of cloud and images SPEED UP MAPPING WORKFLOWS Topcon mobile mapping systems are the perfect solution when a massive amount of asset data needs to be collected in a short amount of time. By mounting a mapping system with various integrated sensors (GNSS, laser scanner, camera, IMU, wheel encoders) to a vehicle, users get all field data quickly. Just drive at normal speeds and get locations and visual detail of all roadside features. There is no need to take time to revisit the field for missing points. Easy to use office software can then be used for viewing, processing, projecting and exporting data for GIS or CAD software.

As-Built BIM has become an essential tool in modern urban development as cities seek to maintain historic building facades and footprints. However, documenting the existing geometry of the walls, windows, MEP systems and other critical elements of a redevelopment project presents a set of unique challenges and competing interests. This insightful session will highlight two recent mixed-used redevelopment projects, in in Los Angeles and Puerto Rico that utilized the latest hardware and software technologies to overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges. These case studies, one a defunct corporate headquarters and the other a decades-old parking garage, will show you practical tips and workflow tools that you can implement on your very next as-built BIM project. Specifically you will learn: 1. How public/private urban renewal jobs can differ from regular scanning/modeling projects 2. How design/build firms are using BIM throughout their as-built project lifecycle 3. How you can implement these time-saving best practices in your field-to-finish workflow 4. New software tools such as EdgeWise 5.0 to speed back office data processing and modeling Join BIM experts Les Carter, Project Manager at Cannon Corporation, Angel Vazquez, President of Sustech, LLC and Kevin Williams, CTO of ClearEdge3D on this instructive and actionable webinar.

For the first time ever, Workflow 4.0 will showcase a revolutionary new workflow that combines the easy collection of the Dot Product hand-held scanner with the automated modeling power of EdgeWise. We’ll highlight a recent project that used only a hand-held in the field and EdgeWise in the back office with stunning results. Here’s what you’ll learn: • The types of projects which are ideal for a hand-held scanners • Practical hand-held collection tips to ensure fast and accurate field work • How Dot Product and ClearEdge3D have integrated their software to offer users a seamless workflow from scan to Revit • The potential savings this inexpensive and fast workflow could deliver on your next project

Large BIM projects create a whole new set of challenges for AEC firms. From more complex field collection to managing massive data sets, Big BIM can stretch and stress even the most well-managed project team. The sheer scale of Big BIM means that any problems, if not corrected early, can compound and place the entire project at risk. No doubt Big BIM provides big opportunities - but perhaps even bigger risk. This webinar will focus on the unique challenges of very large as-built BIM projects (multi-structure over a large area), highlighting two experienced AEC firms and how they plan and execute massive as-built BIMs. These never-before seen case studies will show you: • They key differences between project planning for Big BIM vs. regular BIM—learn how to reduce risk in your largest BIM projects • Field collection strategies to ensure the fastest, most efficient site work—discover how to minimize field time and maximize collection efficiency • Strategies for managing massive terabyte-sized datasets • Advanced modeling techniques and team workflows for maximum back-office efficiency • New technologies and software to extract and model Big BIM quickly and accurately—upcoming releases from EdgeWise and others • And much more! Join Siavash Mohseni, Lead VDC Engineer at Hensel Phelps, Phil Tapp, Project Manager,, Bury Associates, and Alex Demogines of ClearEdge3D (formerly with FARO) on this unique and informative webinar.

In this demonstration, we’ll take a look at the new features in EdgeWise that extract properly specified steel and concrete. The technology compares a pattern against the point cloud at regular intervals. EdgeWise is actually fitting it to the point cloud so you can see if the job is done well.

Preliminary inspection is an indispensable component of building renovation or relocation of factory equipment. The GLS-2000 quickly measures and collects precise 3D point clouds without interrupting ongoing operations. High-density 3D point clouds can be widely utilized for generating as-built drawings and simulation of piping or equipment installation. The GLS-2000 can be safely operated even in areas where laser emission power is restricted; simply by choosing the "Low Power" (Class 1M) measurement mode.

Deformation monitoring of tunnel walls is an important safety procedure to prevent collapse during construction and while in operation. The GLS-2000 captures 3D data of tunnel surfaces quickly and efficiently. Even with the most complex surfaces, such as those along curves or at junction points, profiles can be modeled without difficulty.
