As part of the expansion, EarthCam launched three tools that merge its real-time webcam imagery with Autodesk platforms.
The following a press release from the New York–based webcam technology provider EarthCam announcing an expanded partnership with Autodesk.
Today at Autodesk University, EarthCam introduced unprecedented capabilities for Autodesk’s construction industry clients. Now, by merging real-time webcam imagery with Autodesk platforms, new intelligent perspectives of jobsites are being created. To that effort, EarthCam is premiering View Builder, PlanGrid Tasks and VR Dollhouse, unique, navigable 3D models infused with EarthCam’s 360° imagery.
“EarthCam is a great Autodesk partner, taking full advantage of the power of the Forge Viewer by integrating an array of photographic imagery,” said Jim Quanci, Senior Director, Developer Advocacy & Support at Autodesk. “The relationship between Autodesk and EarthCam is creating new innovative and valuable insights that enable VDC teams to make better more timely decisions that eliminate mistakes, reduce costs, keep projects on schedule and improve the safety of the construction site for everyone.”
Project teams can leverage EarthCam’s integration with Autodesk to view synched live camera streams meshed with model views, and zoom in on architectural details while immediately seeing the corresponding model alignment. The new View Builder provides VDC teams with a completely customizable way to create and save different layered views within the Forge Viewer.
