3D Laser Scanning

We field measure all of our work through the use of 3D Laser Scanning technology.

3D Laser Scanning is a non-contact, non-destructive technology that digitally captures the shape of physical objects using a line of laser light. 3D laser scanners create “point clouds” of data from the surface of an object. In other words, 3D laser scanning is a way to capture a physical object’s exact size and shape into the computer world as a digital 3-dimensional representation.

3D laser scanners measure fine details and capture free-form shapes to quickly generate highly accurate point clouds. 3D laser scanning is ideally suited to the measurement and inspection of contoured surfaces and complex geometries which require massive amounts of data for their accurate description; where traditional measurement methods or a touch probe would be impractical. 

3D Laser Scanning Advantages:

  • Can be used on simple to complex projects
  • Is the most effective measurement solution in the Architectural market 
  • Provides a solution for long lead times & inaccuracy
  • Helps to identify and offer solutions to serious construction inconsistencies 
  • Resolves issues such as minimum system depth requirements early on
  • Identifies out-of-plumb conditions that can be quantified and established on installation drawings
  • Can be used by Engineers as 'built conditions' in areas where access can be unsafe or impossible
  • Greatly reduces field fabrication 
  • Data can be saved for future use without several on-site trips
  • Eliminates potential for costly human error in measuring
