Optimizing Reality Capture

with Brad Shapiro

Optimizing Reality Capture

with Brad Shapiro

Do the times make the person, or does the person make the times?

In Brad Shapiro’s case, both!

His education timing was impeccable, as he was part of the last cohort that actually started drawing by hand, then moved to CAD, only to be immersed in Revit by graduation.

That foundation of knowledge gave Avvir and currently EquipmentShare a brilliant scanner and product manager. It also gave Episode 51 of the RCN podcast a brilliant discussion. Matthew and Brad cover how Avvir acts as a reality analysis platform, overkill in reality capture, project pacing & safety, AI & reality capture predictions, and Brad’s unyielding love for a very specific analysis.
