UAV (DRONE) TRAINING offered by ADSK Solutions

ADSK Solutions, Troy MI offeres UAV aka drone solutions.

ADSK Solutions offers UAV aka Drone traning and solutions.

ADSK Solutions is a techKNOWLEDGEy Partner with a primary focus on reality computing. We are a Autodesk Silver Partner and provide rental solutions for UAVs, 3D laser scanning, static, hand held, mobile, and kinematic; we also offer reality capture solutions for your firm. Recently, we have discovered a need for UAV, or more commonly knowns as Drone, solutions and workflows.

Our UAV training provides the fundamental concepts for UAV flight training, UAV comparisons, FPV (first person point of view), ground station, (waypoints) video processing and a specialization in photo capture to pointcloud (3D model deliverables). Utilizing a GoPro camera ADSK can capture photos, provide flight paths which then allows us to capture topographical surveys. The deliverable is a 3D point cloud on survey control points.

ADSK Solutions ran a 40 minute flight path and captured our old office building in Troy, MI. Photos were submited to Autodesk ReCap and this 3D point cloud was returned the next day.

Video of this site was also captured when ADSK Solutions teamed with Autodesk and TJ McCue to present Autodesk 3DRV event. One of our guest speakers, Dr Arron Morris from Autodesk, presented the Phanton II and an incredable video that is available here.

Once inserted into Civil 3D 2015 we were able to create a topographical surface with a single click using the new AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 Point Cloud Surface Extraction feature availabe on subscription website. Civil 3D points and feature lines could be added to complete topographical survey.

Kinematic Mobile 3D Laser Scanning

Attach any static scanner that provides the profile option to the top of the trolly, golf cart, all-terrian vehical or use custom mount and actually walk with the system. The presentation below was provided from an event that ADSK Solutions provided at Comerica park (Tiger Stadium) in downtown Detroit. The data is captured, processed, and shown in Autodesk ReCap and Autodesk Infraworks 2014.

The PROSCAN system captures data INSIDE and OUTSIDE. The system is currently available for purchase and ADSK Solutions offer proof of concept projects. We are located in Troy, Michigan and looking  forward to your feedback. chadstuder@ADSKsolutions.com

Photos to Point Cloud Autodesk ReCap Photo

P20 from photos
7 steps to create point cloud from Photos. For the first project just take photos around the entire object, have fun and review results.

1. Take pictures around an object.
I used this video to learn and complete my first project. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPIZlcwZQJM
2. Log into https://360.autodesk.com
3. Upload images of an object that you took.
4. Select my cloud documents in the upper right corner.
step 1

5. Select all of the photos that will be used; right click; select create 3D model
step 2

6. Will receive an email once the point cloud is completed.
step 3

7. Open rcp file in Autodesk ReCap.

I received an error on my first try. (Browser not supported) I closed internet explorer and opened google chrome to resolve this issue.

When creating the model draft mode will provide the quickest results but will not provide the files to review the model. Select anything but draft mode to review the rcs file in ReCap.

Autodesk Point Clouds and ALLPoint Systems

ADSK Solutions was working with Allpoints providing solutions to our customers since May 2012. We kept this quit and only interfaced with our direct clients because of the advantage that it offered. AllPoint software solutions was incredible. The general concept was scanning without targets. The scanner was attached to a laptop and used robotic technology to know where it was in space. Move the scanner to the next location and it would know it’s relation to the last scan. As the scanner moves around the facility it dumped each scanworld into a queue and the software registered them together in the     background while the scanner continued. The project was registered automatically by the time you left the site.

ALLpoints                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

Did I mention NO TARGETS are used? ALLpoints also offered software known as Insight. This provided a solution to view and measure point clouds on the internet.

I am not sure what took so long for a company to acquire ALLpoints. It was obvious this is a big part of the future for capturing existing conditions. Scanning providers have dreamed of capturing data without the use of targets for years. I am eager to learn about Autodesk vision of this software. The possibilities are endless and I think this will be a point in the timeline that we all remember that changes capturing existing conditions for the better.

If you are thinking about purchasing a scanner or working with point clouds but have decided to wait. It is time to get started. Automatic registration is the one simple piece that was missing for Lidar, Mobile, and Static scanning to become that everyday tool that we thought it would become one day.
