Here’s an overview of how 3D laser scanning can enhance engineering accuracy, shorten project schedules, and improve coordination between engineering project teams and manufacturers.
HOW A 3D LASER SCANNER WORKS ?
Similar to a Total Station, a 3D scanner projects a laser onto a surface, which is then reflected back to the scanner. The scanner will analyze and compare the differences in reflected light frequency and the phase shift of the reflected wavelength to determine the object’s position in space.
The 3D scanner contains an internal mirror that rotates vertically in a full circle. In addition, the scanner will rotate horizontally in a full circle. This combination of a vertically- rotating mirror and horizontally rotating scanner produces a 3D point cloud in a sphere emanating from the scanner.
One of the latest advances is 3D laser scanning. Here’s an overview of how 3D laser scanning can enhance engineering accuracy, shorten project schedules, and improve coordination between engineering project teams and manufacturers.
The world of laser scanning and reality capture
With the introduction of laser scanning, measuring and documenting is simplified and improved across all industries. Whether it is ensuring a clash free design, understanding the general topography of a site, or capturing the intricate geometries seen in manufacturing facilities, laser scanning technology is key for generating business as it allows professionals to more quickly document the as-built conditions for any environment.
Reality capture solutions allows teams from varied disciplines to access smart digital realities to manage existing systems during the design, construction and maintenance cycles in user-friendly, interactive and accessible ways.
