More and more industries are turning to 3D laser scanning to accurately collect as-built data from buildings, facilities and sites. Construction, engineering, and architecture are the top three industries that come to TruePoint for 3D laser scanning services.
Laser scan technology is transforming project workflows. By replacing manual processes and allowing technology to capture and share as-built data throughout the organization, companies are able to expedite project planning and execution.
Many construction projects lack current records and as-built drawings. This information is critical for construction planning because it helps general contractors expedite design using real-world building data as a foundation. 3D laser scanning collects existing site conditions in the form of a point cloud, offering a precise digital record of a building or site with 2-4 mm accuracy.
3D Laser Scanning for Construction Offers:
>Accurate construction documents to expedite decisions
>Millions of critical data points with 2-4 mm accuracy
>Information to align project planning and coordination
>Improved cost estimation and scheduling
>More effective communication between the office and the field
>Elimination of site revisits and missed measurements
>Reduction of costs due to change orders
3D laser scanning can benefit your construction project by providing comprehensive plans and elevations, exact building locations and dimensions, intelligent BIM models, and panoramic images. Having access to accurate site data improves project overall efficiency and profitability, whether you’re embarking on a large construction project, renovation, addition, or the repurposing of structures.
3D laser scanning is a tool for engineers looking to speed up analysis, design, modifications, or prefabrication. The laser scanner documents the precise detail of a space, capturing one million data points per second with 2-4 mm accuracy, removing the possibility of human error. Engineers can use the raw data (point cloud data) to develop 2D CAD drawings and 3D models for design planning. Work can be completed with confidence, without worrying about missed measurements. Potential errors are exposed, providing engineers the ability to identify issues before they arise. 3D scan data provides critical assessments and calculations before a site build-out.
3D Laser Scanning Offers Engineers the Ability to:
>Design confidently from precise as-built conditions
>Complete advanced analysis and off-site visualization
>Access to tighter dimensions to significantly reduce clashes and unknowns
>Keep your clients’ projects on time and on budget
>Visualize and plan successful projects with BIM models
>Provide the most accurate, comprehensive data available
