Rooftop Construction CAD Deliverables — C&I Solar Energy

 

 

Use a drone inspection from Raptor Maps to assist in the design of rooftop solar installations.

A rooftop inspection provides:

  • Image capture for design and 3D modeling
  • Highly accurate roof measurements; reduced human error
  • A safer, more efficient, and up to 50% faster method in comparison to manual inspection

Deliverables are CAD compatible files. Working with your CAD system, you can view rooftop obstacles, assess shadowing impact, and plan more accurate measuring missions.

Raptor Maps offers two tiers of rooftop modeling deliverables.
