3D Robotics’ new app, Site Scan, combines imagery from their construction drone, Mapbox maps, and AutoCAD data to prevent expensive mistakes on constructions sites. Site Scan is the first end-to-end application to offer autonomous drone image capture and seamless cloud integration with Autodesk.
One of 3DR’s customers recently used the Building Information Modeling (BIM) functionality to identify a problem in the placement of pipes on an industrial project. As foundation work ground to a halt for days, engineers captured drone imagery and identified the root cause of the issue: a concrete footing had been over-poured and displaced the pipes. With data from one flight, Mapbox maps, and Autodesk integration, the team identified their next actions and resumed work.
