When it comes to the most challenging infrastructure projects in the world, like the London
Olympics and now the UK's Crossrail project, the
world's leading AEC firms turn to Bentley
Systems for their design and construction information systems. I had the pleasure of
attending the Year in Infrastructure 2013 Conference which also includes the Be Inspired Awards. There were over 60
projects highlighted?impressive, to say the least.
According to Faraz Ravi, the founder of Pointools, Bentley's support for point clouds is now
part of their platform strategy: Rather than producing a number of standalone utilities?such as
those they acquired with Pointools?they are focusing on being sure that the Microstation V8
platform is able to handle massive point clouds as well as other 3D data collections. This is
similar to the Autodesk reality capture strategy.

Laser Scanning Museum Sculpture for
Three-dimensional scanning technologies have been utilized in industry for over twenty years
but are increasingly used in many other fields. One of the exciting, perhaps unanticipated, uses
of 3D measurement tools has been their adoption by museums for sculpture conservation, research,
and interactive exhibits. 3D scanning is a perfect fit for documenting museum pieces. Museums,
for example, typically have pieces that cannot or ...
