LaZerCAD Featured in The Huffington Post
Right Next Door: Michael Axon, Founder and CEO, Lazercad and The English Car Company
We’re thrilled to be featured in The Huffington Post this week. See the article below.
“Where there’s a will, there’s a way — even when the situation at hand involves circumventing top-level national secrecy. When the British government some years ago enlisted aircraft design engineer Michael Axon to assess various locations (and design new ones) overseas where the military’s planes could be securely built, he did his usual: took detailed notes and precise laser measurements.
There was just one problem: Once he was done, military officers wouldn’t allow him to remove his notes and readings from the site to enter them into AutoCAD (an architectural design program) back at his hotel.
So Axon came up with a solution, developing technology with which digital measurements would, in real time, feed into AutoCAD or a similar program called Revit File. The resulting company he founded, Lazercad, now also produces low- and high-resolution 360-degree photography of both existing and prospective buildings, which his clients can view via their own computer or mobile device anywhere on earth.”
