As an architecture, engineering and construction professional, you’re likely familiar with the use of DWG files in your respective fields. The same can be said for designers. They, too, are more than knowledgeable about the use of DWG files in their area of expertise. DWG files have long been the go-to file type for storing 2D or 3D design data and metadata supported by AutoCAD, Revit and other drafting software.
Imagine being able to replace the manual method of documenting a space with a process that uses a camera system to instantly capture thousands of lidar measurements for improved accuracy. iGUIDE, a leading provider in digital twin technology, can do just that!
