The collaboration between HERON, the latest wearable mobile scanners from Gexcel and Verity construction verification software from ClearEdge3D, significantly advances scan-to-BIM workflows with streamlined data collection and construction QA/QC.
Manassas, VA – May 29, 2019 – ClearEdge3D, makers of EdgeWise, Verity, and Rithm for Navisworks software, is pleased to announce a collaboration with Gexcel, makers of HERON® wearable scanners, that was unveiled at the SPAR 3D & AEC NEXT conferences last week in Anaheim, CA. The two companies have joined forces to make it even quicker and easier for AEC professionals to conveniently gather as-built data with Gexcel’s HERON wearable laser scanners—and to compare that data against design/fabrication models using ClearEdge3D’s Verity software, allowing 100% verification of installed work in real-time.
"The partnership between ClearEdge3D and Gexcel brings together two globally recognized AEC tech leaders in the 3D world that are committed to making scan-to-BIM workflows more efficient with truly cutting-edge technologies," said Matteo Sgrenzaroli, R&D Manager of Gexcel. Giorgio Vassena, CEO of Gexcel added, “It’s not just a commercial agreement, but a demonstration of our commitment to providing outstanding solutions to our customers and the AEC industry."
This forward-thinking partnership makes it even easier and more convenient for users to find construction mistakes before they become expensive problems. Using real-time visualization of survey results, users can promptly identify out-of-tolerance or inaccurately constructed work.
“The HERON scanner is a state-of-the-art 3D mobile scanner powered with cutting edge Simultaneous, Localization And Mapping (SLAM) technology. It features a host of proprietary algorithms to minimize drift and maximize accuracy and speed. We are excited to add it to our growing hardware portfolio.” - Kelly Cone, VP of AEC Industry Strategy at ClearEdge3D.
