How 3D Imaging Services Improved their MEP Modeling Efficiency by 60% - (posted) March 2nd 2012
Is your firm's scan-to-model process up-to-date with the latest time-saving technology? Do you want to boost modeling efficiency to become more competitive? Are you faced with ever-shortened due dates and increasingly complex deliverables? Would you like to streamline your firm's MEP modeling workflow so that you can win more projects?

Please join the SPAR Point Group's presentation of a large MEP case study by 3D Imaging Services showcasing a best-practices workflow that improved their modeling efficiencies by 60%. 3D Imaging will share their new approach to the modeling workflow using automated feature extraction technology that dramatically reduces modeling time while improving the quality of the final deliverable. Nick Bobbitt, As-Built Project Coordinator for 3D Imaging will discuss the following:

- How their modeling approach uniquely overcomes common MEP modeling challenges
- Insights on best practices that radically improve scan-to-model efficiencies
- How and when to adopt of new technologies and best practices into your workflow
- How the benefits far outweigh the risks of implementing automation into your modeling projects
