Plo.T. - AutoCAD Plotting Tool

Martedì 20 Agosto 2013, 19:44

Plo.T. The association City Space Architecture, in collaboration with the TC Project research lab, is happy to offer to all visitors of its website the free CAD utility Plo.T., developed by S. Garagnani for his lazy CAD students and friends!

Are you tired of losing your mind filling the AutoCAD plot window with numbers difficult to calculate, especially the night before an exam or a delivery? Plo.T. (Plotting Tool) is for you and it's free to use! Plo.T. is a tiny software for MS Windows that does the math for you! Just choose how your drawing was made, choose your plot scale and Plo.T. will suggest you right parameters to print from AutoCAD Model Space or setting proper Layout window's values.

Plo.T. r0.1 can be downloaded from the City Space Architecture repository.

 

GreenSpider test drive on existing buildings

Giovedì 20 Giugno 2013, 16:34

GreenSpider and historic vaultsIn my research, I'm deeply concerned about representing existing buildings in BIM domain. Thence, historical buildings are considerably a further reason for my interest. GreeenSpider was originally imagined as a piece of code able to traslate points as reference in Revit, with particular interest in Rhino+Grasshopper's parametric morphologies. However, dealing with real buildings, translating decimated point clouds from laser scanning or digital photogrammetry appeared to be feasible as well.

This post is intended as a practical example of GreenSpider implementation in real world documentation: in this case I would introduce a working pipeline on vault modeling in Revit from an accurate TLS survey.

 

The Kinect wall of fame

Giovedì 06 Giugno 2013, 14:23

Even if with lots of troubles in mind and a very few spare time, I keep working on Kinect developing aimed at point cloud extraction. Now that the official Kinect for Windows documentation by Microsoft is consolidated, I'm trying to write some c# code to create a little piece of software for dynamic point cloud collection.

More after the cut.

GreenSpider 2.1 is out and it's much powerful than ever.

Sabato 25 Maggio 2013, 20:25

GreenSpider 2.1 GreenSpider 2.1 is ready for download from this page. This plugin is now much more complex, and it works both on Revit 2013 and 2014. GreenSpider Translator 1.2 can now open files from customized locations with multiple browsing. Inside the Revit environment .GSP files can be now selected from custom path. The GreenSpider 2.1 user interface is much more compact and intuitive (GSCurves and GSPoints are now part of a less intrusive drop-down menu). XYZ files can be now sorted following X or Y axis.

The brand new installation system is more sophisticated than its predecessors. Since the plugin was written taking advantage of RevitAPI2013, it works on both Revit 2013 and 2014. Please be sure to choose the right version during the install process.

GreenSpider 2.1 is here!

 

Flying over the (point) clouds

Martedì 21 Maggio 2013, 18:41

Poster at BiSP Last saturday I was in Rome (unfortunately for a few time) to give a little talk on my research activities on high-tech surveys and Public Space. Thanks to my friends at Eye Sky S.r.l. I could present the flight we had together last August over Piazza Maggiore, in Bologna. They made a great job with their Microdrone MD4-200!

On the left there is the poster presented at BiSP2013 (click the thumbnail to enlarge): it was exhibited during the whole event at University of Roma3 location (ex-macello).

I also talked about laser scanning techniques for wide sites surveys, introducing the high definition capture we made some weeks ago in Piazza Verdi, in Bologna as well.

 

Info

Dal 2004 questo piccolo angolo di rete raccoglie gli interessi di ricerca e i lavori di sperimentazione digitale di Simone Garagnani in materia di cultura geek, ma soprattutto di Building Information Modeling, rilievi digitali ad alta risoluzione e computer graphics legata al mondo dell'architettura, dell'ingegneria e delle costruzioni. TC Project, è presente anche sul social network Facebook.

 

Welcome to these pages that host since 2004 Simone Garagnani's personal blog, a collection of nerd notes and geek experiences focused sometimes on Building Information Modeling, terrestrial laser scanning, digital photogrammetry and computer graphics applied to the AEC world. The TC Project is also available on Facebook.
