Today we took two buses of Autodesk University attendees on a field trip to the Hoover Dam. Dave Winslow of the US Bureau of Reclamation and myself presented the 3D reality capture work we did upriver at the Glen Canyon Dam using LiDAR, SONAR, and photogrammetry for perhaps the largest point cloud dataset. After the presentation all those attending got a nice tour of the Hoover Dam.
The long day ended with a great group of AutoCAD social media and the AutoCAD team taking in Cirque du Soleil’s Ka show. What a show of engineering Ka is. Did you know AutoCAD was used in the design of the Ka show by Tait Towers?
Tomorrow is a very long day starting at 5:30 with the AU 5k where everyone can join in at meet at the Venetian fountain out front and run at 6am. There will be breakfast bites and more out there.
After the run I have a special customer event before the opening keynote at 10:30am. For those unable to make the keynote it will be live streamed on Facebook.
