CTC’s UAV/Drone Services combine the innovation of aerial photo/video capturing drones and Autodesk software to give clients vantage points from the sky, quality control and 3D aerial footprints. Using this service, clients can canvas the entire project site for mapping the site orientation and construction progress. With our skilled representative maneuvering trees, buildings and other obstacles, the drone can capture videos and pictures of your building in high definition and also collect a multitude of aerial photos in one flight.
Our UAV / Drone Services Procedure
- Contact CTC or request a quote.
- A sales representative will contact you with detailed quote information and set up a meeting day with you.
- The CTC Drone Pilot will contact any local air traffic control facilities or request FAA waivers, as needed, to safely perform the service.
- The CTC Drone Pilot will arrive at the site and fly the drone while capturing aerial photographs and / or high resolution video.
- The photographs are then stitched together to generate an orthographic image or a point cloud of the site or building, which can then be brought into Civil 3D or Revit.
- The aerial photographs are geotagged so resulting models can be brought into Infraworks in real world coordinates.
- A general estimated time for this process is about a week.
Optional: 3D printed full-color model
- Prepare digital 3D model for printing.
- After model is printed it will be brushed, cleaned, bathed, prepared and shipped to the client.
- Additional time will be required for this process.
