3D Laser Scanning
3D scanning is a cutting-edge technology that uses LIDAR to capture incredibly precise measurements of a space in a full 360-degree view. Each scan can measure up to 250 feet away with sub-millimeter accuracy, resulting in a comprehensive and detailed understanding of the scanned area. This technology is suitable for both indoor and outdoor areas and can accurately capture and process individual areas of interest, resulting in a full 3D point cloud of the scanned space.
The benefits of 3D scanning are numerous and varied. The following list illustrates just some of the many capabilities we offer:
- Advanced segmentation/slicing, this allows for the point cloud to be processed into smaller groups as well as classified as floor, ceiling, machinery, etc.
- Scan to model, scan data can be imported into BIM software like Revit to create model components based on existing locations.
- Floor flatness, inspect floors to ASTM E1155 flatness standards which includes a report.
- Volume calculations, inspect 3-dimensional areas for aggregate/concrete fill amount requirements.
- Topological Slicing, make many slices of model along particular axis. Useful for finding paths through busy areas of the facility for things like process piping and conveyor.
- Collision Checking, place new model components into existing scan to check for collisions.
- General inspections like wall verticality, column alignment, and the ability to compare point cloud to model to generate a heatmap of distances from model to points for accuracy inspection.
All completed 3D scans include an accuracy report, ensuring that satisfactory results are obtained for all parties involved. Survey spheres can be used to further increase accuracy levels down to ~0.3 millimeters, depending on the size of the scanned area. Whether for architectural, engineering, or other purposes, our team can help achieve the best results possible with the latest in 3D scanning technology.
