Last week a wonderful workshop organized by Luisa Bravo took place in Rome at the "Biennale dello Spazio Pubblico 2013". Guys from CitySpaceArchitecture presented an amazing work about "Upgrading Bologna, version 2.0".

Here, some pictures of the event, more videoclips after the cut...

Faro Scenect and dynamic point cloud extraction using Kinect

Lunedì 15 Aprile 2013, 11:45

My office captured by KinectThese days I'm testing my brand new Microsoft Kinect with this amazing free software by Faro. Scenect in fact is a Scene LT clone which embeds some Kinect drivers by PrimeSense and OpenNI. Even if my lab at University is waiting for Kinect for Windows supply from Microsoft, I bought myself a Kinect sensor in its XBOX360 version. Differences are not so massive (Kinect for Windows is intended for PC usage, so lenses can focus beginning from 40cm. while the XBOX release needs at least 80cm.) and Scenect supports both hardware devices.

The purpose of my post is to spare some comments an a promising real time technology, aimed at dynamic indoor 3D capturing with not GPS driven and very low-cost hardware.

 

123D Catch, photogrammetry in the cloud

Lunedì 08 Aprile 2013, 18:01

 A netsuke is a tiny sculpture that was invented in 17th-century Japan to serve a practical function: traditional Japanese garments in fact had no pockets so people had to place their belongings in containers (called sagemono) hung by cords from the robes' sashes (obi). Whatever the form of the container, the fastener that secured the cord at the top of the sash was a carved, button-like toggle called a netsuke. A little, funny, ivory netsuke was used as a test shape to carry out some experiments on 123D Catch, the digital photogrammetric software by Autodesk part of 123D suite.

Read more of my experiment and some updates!

 

BCF Revit plugin has been released.

Lunedì 25 Marzo 2013, 20:13

All over the process, BIM is a matter of interoperability. Several actors, using different software, speaking various languages. Validating digital models can be tricky, even nightmarish. This is the reason why Matteo in his thesis developed a specific plugin designed for Autodesk Revit 2013, taking advantage of the BIM Collaboration Format (BCF) pre release.

Revit models can now be checked in Solibri and re-imported back in Revit with proper red-lining.

Nice and interesting work Matteo!
