Integration of 3DR’s drone data platform and Autodesk’s project management tool designed to improve collaboration and quality control

3DR has integrated its construction-centric drone data platform Site Scan with Autodesk BIM 360, the project management tool for virtual construction managers and site teams.

Enabled through the Autodesk Forge platform the integration is designed to make it easier for project teams — Including project managers, engineers, subcontractors, and others — to access drone data and use it in their day-to-day work.

There are three main capabilities:

The first is the ability to take CAD and PDF design files from BIM 360 and overlay them onto into orthomosaics in Site Scan. This enables users to compare design to reality and spot mistakes.

The second is the ability to share drone data with your team, by push Site Scan orthomosaics, point clouds, digital elevation models, and more into BIM 360 so they’re easily accessible in tools like Revit, BIM 360 Glue and Field, and more.

The third is the ability to ‘solve problems on site’, by being able to create issues directly on a orthomosaic in Site Scan and pushing them to BIM 360 Field.


“Site Scan makes it easy for us to collect and process accurate drone data,” said Andy Leek, VDC Director at Paric. Now, with this BIM 360 integration, we can easily share it across our entire project team can get the full benefit this data provides. Site Scan has become the go-to drone data platform for BIM 360 users.”
