Webinar: De-Risking Tugboat Engine Mods with handheld 3D scanning
This live webinar details how DotProduct handheld 3D scanning was used by Ship Architects to capture the as-built state of two engines to inform design modifications for the Mount St. Elias tug, and how this work minimized field capture time, ensured completeness of the as-built data, and de-risked downstream engineering design choices. Topics covered (and demoed live) include all of the following and more:
- The speed and value of handheld 3D data capture for accurate engineering modifications with low-cost hardware.
- The complete process of scanning Caterpillar 3516 engine mounts using Dot3D Pro software on a DPI-10SR kit.
- Use of AprilTag targeting and the AccuScale-DP scale bar kit for automatic accuracy improvements in the field.
- Live data sharing workflows, from the tugboat engine room to the Ship Architects office for real-time QA/QC.
- The procedure for capturing and georeferencing high-resolution images within the point cloud.
- Alignment of the point cloud data to ship coordinates and the associated ShipConstructor model.
- Design modifications to the engine mounts within ShipConstructor.
- Interference checking and annotation in Autodesk Navisworks.
- Analysis of the cost, schedule and risk reduction benefits of this handheld 3D scanning workflow.
