3D LASER SCANNING APPLICATIONS

Architectural Applications

Historical buildings and modern constructions with a lot of bended elements are often difficult to measure with conventional surveying material. By scanning facades and interiors of a listed building a 3D point cloud of the entire building is created.

The next evolution of architectural data collection is here.

laser scanning captures as-built conditions rapidly and precisely. Once assembled, the scanned images reveal building relationships in ways difficult to imagine, let alone measure. Our desire is to provide detailed spatial information to architects, design professionals, engineers, and builders. Most of the world has already been built, but is still poorly documented. 3D imaging provides the best foundation for understanding what you want to change.

Laser scanning-based reality capture is fundamentally changing the world of architecture and construction. This technology and the complimentary workflow provides tangible, real-world benefits by lowering the cost of documenting as-is conditions and reducing the overall project lifecycle. Building and facility owners realize cost reducing and measurable benefits, including reduced man-hours, and improved accuracy. Lower costs related to errors and omissions, including a reduction of change orders, are also achieved.

Consider 3D laser scanning for:

  • As-Built Deliverables: plans, sections and elevations
  • 3D modeling
  • Heritage surveys
  • Site planning
  • Animated fly-throughs
  • MEP and Electrical layouts
  • Reverse Engineering
  • Clash Detection

Deliverables

  • Deliverables are tailored to the individual needs of each client:
  • Post-processed point clouds can be directly exported to Autocad, Revit, NavisWorks, Microstation, Rhino, and other CAD platforms.
  • Post-processed point clouds are simply traced as vectors (polylines) for 2D, scaled, dimensionable, plans, sections, and elevations, for a variety of CAD platforms.
  • Point clouds can be geo-referenced to existing site dimensional survey control.

Advantages

  • Almost any project that requires accurate as-built information can benefit from 3D imaging:
  • Measurement accuracy of ±2mm (depending on distance to measured object).
  • Unobtrusive data capture methods.
  • Reduced costly ‘return’ site visits.
  • Rapid data capture of large volumes with increased accuracy.
  • Measurements can be made quickly and easily when required without the need for return site visits.
  • Shorter project times with a rapid turnaround of information.
  • Point clouds can be checked and measured using free viewing software, from any scan location.

3D Laser Scanning

Using a 3D laser scanner, our team can collect remote measurements of large areas with an extraordinary accuracy of up to 2mm. This scanner collects up to 976,000 measurement points per second, allowing us to accurately identify and document all visible elements of a structure in a fraction of the time it would take with manual measurement. For most laser scanning projects, the time required to capture the data on-site is reduced by at least 50-70% compared to traditional survey methods.

In other words, it's time to put down the tape measure.

Data, Extraction, Modeling & Export

Using the virtualized 3D site as a guide, our modelers can swiftly generate accurate and up-to-date as-built models in Autodesk® Revit®. Since our team works with hard data—instead of manual measurements, notes and hand drawings—the time and cost spent on modeling is typically a fraction of the manual approach. And since the project’s architects don’t have to worry about modeling as-built conditions, they’re able to place their focus on design.

Once our team has completed the model, it can be viewed from any perspective to see detailed elements within the structure. The model is then delivered in the format that best suits the client’s needs. Typical formats include Revit models, CAD drawings, orthophotos and point clouds.

3D Scanning for Architecture, Engineering & Construction

From the design stage to the inspection stage, 3D scanning and measurement is an integral element of architecture, engineering, and construction. Our terrestrial scanning services can save you hundreds of hours on planning time and misspent labor.
