This course covers all of the essential skills you will need to get up to speed with Autodesk ReCap. Each lesson includes a complete video tutorial you can watch, pause, rewind, and watch again as the instructor explains the basics of this program for preparing 3D laser scans for import into AutoCAD and other Autodesk programs.
In just under an hour, you will be able to import scan files, save and export projects, change the appearance of point clouds, work with scan regions and scan locations, and add dimensions and notes. Most lessons include actual point cloud files that you can download and load into your copy of Autodesk ReCap so that you can follow along as the instructor demonstrates various concepts.
This course includes more than a dozen lessons totaling nearly an hour of video lectures, plus materials you can download and online quizzes.
If you want to learn Autodesk ReCap, this is the course for you.
This document provides a general course introduction as well as an introduction to the material that will be covered in Section 1 and also explains some important aspects of the course, including how to download and use the point cloud files that are referenced by many of the lessons.
The course begins with an introduction to point clouds and then takes you through all of the functions of Autodesk ReCap, explaining how to take point cloud data generated by 3D laser scanners and create point cloud project files that reference multiple indexed scan files.
If you have reached this point, that means that you have completed all of the lectures in this course, Reality Capture with Autodesk ReCap – Revealed!
Congratulations. What are your next steps?
You have learned the essential skills you need to know in order to use Autodesk ReCap to create intelligent 3D models from laser scans. But as you may imagine, there is a lot more to learn about using those 3D models in other Autodesk software, such as AutoCAD or Revit.
At CADLearning, we are continuing to develop additional courses and hope to launch more courses on Udemy in the future.
