BIM, Point Cloud Workflows Among Hot Training Topics at HxGN LIVE 2014

Worlds largest event dedicated to helping professionals harness the power of Hexagons technologies promises valuable learning and networking opportunities.

NORCROSS, GA, March 24, 2014 Preliminary details have been released for the Geosystems track and hands-on training sessions at HxGN LIVE 2014, and the schedule already highlights numerous opportunities to learn about key trends and innovative solutions shaping fields such as surveying, engineering, construction and mining. The global technology conference and networking event will be held June 2-5 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and will feature hundreds of practical sessions and over three football fields of innovation.

This years conference includes the most training sessions ever offered at the conference, with more than 21 available courses providing the equivalent of 84 hours of training time. Topics include Cyclone tips and tricks; registration techniques; easy-to-use point cloud plug-ins for CAD, such as Leica CloudWorx; and laser scanning for forensics. Attendees will also have the opportunity to preview the next beta version of Cyclone, which promises easier, more flexible implementation and exciting new tools.

BIM is a major focus of the conference, with training courses offered on popular topics such as concrete flatness scanning; progressive scanning for coordinating the built structure and mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems; and scanning workflows on preconstruction for MEP.

Other training sessions will focus on increasing field productivity with SmartWorx Viva and STAR*NET; creating impressive deliverables with the Pegasus Software Suite; and streamlining workflows with the MS50, Infinity and MultiWorx hardware and software package.

There are a lot of great classes and interaction, but the real value is in the integration of technologies, said Greg Perkins, LS, technical sales and support representative for Leica Geosystems. You have the opportunity to learn how to apply a solution like the MS50 in a surveying operation, with the entire workflow laid out, and then you can go down the hall and learn about high-definition scanning, and you can learn about monitoring. So you can see the whole process.

Seats are limited in all training courses, so early registration is encouraged. The complete schedule can be downloaded here. For more information or to register, visit
