Owners, architects, engineers and contractors are feeling the devastation of restructuring work flows and business models to adapt to new tools and a tidal wave of new information.

You can’t discuss technology in the building industry without mentioning BIM. However, those in the know are looking ahead to another emerging technology that will bring improvements to the industry: 3D laser scanning. Laser scanning can create a point cloud image using size and location data collected from real objects in a certain space.
The acquisition merges U.S. CAD’s expanded BIM portfolio with Mid-West CAD’s local industry expertise to better serve the needs of the AEC community in the Central U.S. Learn more about how this integration enhances our shared goal of quality and efficiency.
