Use of Blender in visualising compactor machine data
Thought I'd share a cool use of Blender that inge_handagard on the BlenderArtists forums had showed me. He used BlenderBIM to automatically parse point data from a compactor machine when building a highway, and creates an IFC from them so that BIM users can see the results to ensure that the road is being properly compacted.
Shown below is the IFC opened in Navisworks (proprietary), which is how others might open the file. This process is run automatically every day, apparently!
