EarthCam has released upgrades to its Autodesk Construction Cloud integration.
EarthCam’s live job site cameras can now capture and deliver imagery to Autodesk Build, a project management and field execution solution, as well as BIM 360 and PlanGrid.
The company says its engineers are ensuring that actionable visual information is promptly available for each new feature as Autodesk expands capabilities for Autodesk Build. Many of EarthCam’s existing Autodesk Construction Cloud integrations are already fully compatible with Autodesk Build.
“Through our long-established partnership with Autodesk, we’re committed to adding as many new image integration features as we can for no additional charge to customers,” said Brian Cury, CEO and founder of EarthCam. “We’re proud to empower VDC teams with visual data that improves collaboration, mitigates project risk and enables data-driven decision making from one powerful platform.”
On the design side, comprehensive use of live construction cameras is becoming the new norm for VDC teams, EarthCam says. It has responded by merging real-time webcam imagery with Autodesk products connecting projects throughout their entire lifecycle. New, intelligent perspectives of job sites are created by infusing navigable Navisworks or Revit 3D models with EarthCam’s 360-degree imagery, providing insight and clear visual evidence of progress. Synched live camera streams are meshed with model views, and users can zoom in on architectural details while immediately seeing the corresponding model alignment.
According to James Cook, head of integrations at Autodesk Construction Solutions, “By integrating EarthCam’s real-time visual imagery in to Autodesk Construction Cloud solutions, EarthCam empowers our mutual customers to make project-management decisions grounded in the real-time status of their projects.”
