Architecture, Engineering, & Construction 3D Scanning

Nov 3

3D scanning and measuring are used in architecture, engineering, and building from the design stage through the inspection stage. Scanning services on the ground can save you hundreds of hours in planning time and wasted work.

Around the world, terrestrial and LiDAR experts have worked on new construction, restoration, historic preservation, and building inspection projects. Terrestrial scanning services are a perfect 3D as-built documentation option for any building project, from historic residences to multinational airports.


3D Scanning Services Benefits:

  • On-site 3D scanning and modeling of your location, which can be nearly any size or setting, including daytime, nighttime, interiors, and outdoors
  • Get a detailed list of the current as-built conditions
  • Obtain lasting records for usage now or in the future
  • Reduce your time and costs by using cameras and measuring equipment
  • Boost safety in high-risk areas
  • 3D Sites and ornate features should be scanned and replicated
  • Verify the architecture of floors, walls, buildings, and more using this terrestrial (or static LiDAR) technology
  • ... a slew of other advantages depending on your business and application


Deliverables for 3D Scanning:

  • CAD Models in 3D
  • As-built documentation with BIM integration
  • More accurate fly-through and presenting capabilities than images or video alone
  • Elevation Drawings from Point Cloud Data
  • Drawings of the Plan

What Is 3D Terrestrial Scanning, & How Does It Work?

Terrestrial and mobile 3D scanning are approaches for swiftly and accurately gathering high-density spatial images with millions of coordinates.

You may examine as-built documentation in a virtual world using very accurate 3D scan data obtained by 3D scanning. The point cloud data may also be surfaced to create a CAD model for comparison or reconstruction purposes.

The size of the specimen being scanned is no longer restricted by the machine's directional movement or arm's reach. Scans may be taken almost anywhere and at any time. The "point-cloud" data produced by terrestrial scanning may be used as a reference to construct a completely parametric file in your design program.
