U.S. CAD partners with 3DR to offer Site Scan, an enterprise drone solution, to the AEC industry
AEC firms can now own an aerial analytics platform that is fully integrated with Autodesk tools for reality capture and cloud analysis
Newport Beach, California, September 15, 2016 – U.S. CAD, an AEC technology and solutions consultant and Autodesk Platinum Partner, announces today its partnership with 3D Robotics (3DR), North America’s largest enterprise drone company, to provide building and design teams with access to Site Scan, 3DR’s complete enterprise package designed for surveying, scanning, and inspections.
Drone and aerial data capture technology are becoming increasingly valuable to field professionals working in the construction, mapping, infrastructure, utility, and telecommunications industries. Implementation of these tools, however, is thought to be cumbersome, expensive, and difficult to integrate with existing workflows. U.S. CAD and 3DR look to address these concerns with Site Scan, a drone system that provides the hardware, software, and support necessary to help make teams successful.
“We are proud to partner with 3DR to offer our customers a fully automated, enterprise class system like Site Scan that integrates with familiar Autodesk solutions such as Revit, Civil 3D, and ReCap,” states Chris Keck, Director of Professional Services for U.S. CAD. “Together, we can help firms reduce operational costs, mitigate risks, and make better-informed decisions when it comes to their building, infrastructure, or construction project.”
“Capturing site data today is costly, time consuming and often dangerous. Drones can easily go where it’s inefficient or unsafe for field personnel, making it easier to accurately measure our world so we can better manage it,” said Brent Pirruccello, VP of Enterprise at 3DR. “We’re delighted to partner with Autodesk [Platinum] Partner — U.S. CAD — to deliver Site Scan, a complete solution for site capture that will help our customers save time, save money and keep humans out of harm’s way.”
The Site Scan package includes a Solo drone, Sony tablet with the required mobile app, and unlimited access to the 3DR cloud. For more information about Site Scan, as offered by U.S. CAD, please visit https://uscad.com/solutions/site-scan/
