3D Laser Scanning

With Leica RTC360
and Matterport Pro2

Laser scanning is the most cost effective solution for creating very precise 3D capture of objects and environments, that can be later used to generate 2D drawings and documentation as well as 3D models and more. Its applications exceed borders in industries such as architecture, construction, manufacturing, inspection and surveying.

The product of laser scanning is point cloud data that can be opened using free software to take a 3D tour, make measurements, examine details, and even generate section views. However, in most instances, our clients opt for a 3D model instead of receiving the point cloud data because of its clearer visualisation and significantly reduced file size, which can go from 200 GB to just 10 MB.

Benefits of 3D Scanning

• Precision:

Laser scanning operates with incredible accuracy, capturing measurements up to 2mm precision.

• Speed:

We employ market’s fastest and most precise laser scanner, guaranteeing the most cost-effective and time-efficient solutions.

• Distance:

Whether indoors or outdoors, our laser scanners can capture data with remarkable precision, reaching distances of up to 130m

• Application:

Guaranteed reliable data, preventing costly oversights whether it’s for creating As-built documentation or undertaking renovation or retrofit projects.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

Laser scanners emit laser beams towards a target, and the time it takes for the laser pulses to bounce back to the scanner is measured. In one second laser scanner measure up to 2 million points. The measured points after creates 3D point cloud.

Certainly, you can opt for laser scanning without 3D modelling. However, it’s worth noting that 3D models are often preferred for their ease of use and sharing. They also result in significantly reduced file sizes, sometimes going from over 200GB to as small as 20MB.

Following a laser scanning project, you will receive a point cloud file that can be opened in a free app. These files enable you to take measurements, generate section views, and even embark on a 3D tour.

No, laser scanning necessitates that the target object remain stationary during the scanning process. Movements around the object are generally acceptable.

Yes, the laser scanning equipment we use is safe for the eyes.

Size is no limit. Laser scanning technology can achieve remarkable precision, down to 20 microns, for small-scale objects. For larger areas, drones can be employed to capture data more efficiently. We always tailor the solution to the specific needs of the project.

As-built Documentation: Definition, Meaning and Use Cases

As-built documentation refers to a set of documents, which can be drawings or 3D models, that accurately depict a building as it was actually constructed, including all dimensions and changes made during the construction process. This documentation is essential for various applications such as maintenance, renovation, compliance verification, and quality management. It serves as a vital resource for facility managers, contractors, and service providers.
