Newport Beach, Calif.-based U.S. CAD – an architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry consultant and Autodesk Platinum Partner – has partnered with 3D Robotics (3DR) to provide building and design teams with access to Site Scan, 3DR’s enterprise drone package designed for surveying, scanning and inspections.
The Site Scan package includes a Solo drone, Sony tablet with the required mobile app and unlimited access to the 3DR cloud.
“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.”
U.S. CAD, which serves customers in the western U.S., specializes in helping to integrate building information modeling (BIM), sustainable design and analysis solutions by incorporating a variety of Autodesk solutions, along with providing consulting, training and support services.
“Capturing site data today is costly, time-consuming and often dangerous,” adds Brent Pirruccello, vice president of enterprise at 3DR. “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.”
