Improved scanners have enabled much more reliable and consistent model generation. However, with the average file size of laser scans more than tripled over the last three years, field teams are struggling to transfer these large scan files back to their VDC teams in the office. Additionally, legacy processes needing file uploads and downloads to be completed in their entirety before subsequent steps like model registration can commence made such workflows immensely time-consuming. This assumes there were no drops in the internet connection that would require restarting the entire upload or download.
In this presentation, Nick Decker from Egnyte walks you through the evolution of file transfers – from shipping hard drives to rigid file uploads, and finally to the future of file transfer, live streaming. Learn about the transformation of model registration workflows as Nick deep dives into benefits of leveraging dedicated devices for file uploads that feature upload resiliency. Discover innovative methods that allow model registration to begin as the downloads happen, and how such advancements are helping firms like Balfour Beatty and PCL streamline and optimize their scan-to-BIM workflows.
