One of the biggest advantages of Reality Capture is the ability to start designing from ‘something’ rather than beginning your design with a blank page. In this example, that ‘something’ is photographs of an old artillery emplacement which is then turned into restaurant.

This demonstration was created with the help of a GoPro camera mounted to a drone. Those photos were then modeled using ReCap 360 to establish the existing conditions of the site. The building and the final rendering were then created from this ‘reality data’ with Revit 2014.

We’re only beginning to scratch the surface of what is possible with these and other technologies. The ability to influence design with more and more context is what makes the future of Reality Capture so exciting and limitless!
