How to Use Reality Capture & Scanning for 3D Documentation

Explore how to use reality capture and scanning to convert reality into a 3D model or 2D drawing that’s ready for further design, so you can start your design with accurate dimensions and full photo-quality context rather than a blank screen.

Learn about how LANGAN uses their surveying data for a variety of applications; from site visualizations and mass models to BIM support and forensic studies, as well as how to:

  • Use automatic registration in order to create an accurate, scalable 3D point cloud from your scan data in minutes.
  • Use ReCap to import, view, and edit point clouds to prepare them for other Autodesk products.
  • Add notes, measurements, pictures, and hyperlinks to your project, and share with collaborators

Review our webinar with Joseph Romano and Matthew Sipple from LANGAN Engineering as they discuss the use of reality capture to experience the increased speed and workflow capabilities for scan and photogrammetry projects.

ReCap vs. ReCap Pro

With Autodesk ReCap software you are able to create accurate 3D models with reality capture using laser scanning. This software, which lets you convert reality into a 3D model or 2D drawing, actually comes in two flavors: ReCap and ReCap Pro. This blog post is here to explain the differences between the two.

To access ReCap, you can start a free 30-day trial. Once those 30 days are up, you will have the option to subscribe to ReCap Pro or continue using the free features of ReCap. Check out the comparison matrix below to review the different features!

To learn more about each product, head to our ReCap or ReCap Pro product pages or contacts us directly at info@microsolresources.com.
