This hands-on lab will cover how to edit point cloud projects in ReCap software for all disciplines and project types. Advanced documentation and annotation features will be reviewed to make finding equipment and rooms in the point cloud easier for all ReCap users. A quick tour will cover how to extract a piece of equipment for use in planning and general arrangements, or as a template for creating a 3D asset. Next, the group will go over the demolition workflow and how SSOE has created various demolition packages over the years. Finally, there will be a review on how to reduce storage on a network and use the undocumented feature of importing unified data sets in ReCap.
