What is it?

Long range scanning is widely becoming used as a fast and accurate method for collecting data on medium to large scale areas and structures. This is useful for 3D data collection in industries such as aerospace, nuclear, automotive, power, architectural, civil engineering, construction, industrial, any many others.

How does it work?

The scanner creates a point cloud – a set of data points in 3D space. This integrates with industry standard CAD modelling solutions and architectural building information modelling (BIM) software. We can then use the point cloud data to overlay existing CAD data, create new CAD, create architectural/technical drawings, and to create full-blown HDR 3D virtual tours.

Scans from different rooms or areas of the same building are seamlessly stitched together in software, creating comprehensive 3D environments. Likewise, scans from different angles outside buildings (or other structures) combine to form a single 3D model.

What’s the benefit?

The process is fast and cost-effective; becoming an ever-growing, popular solution to time-consuming and dated methods of collecting large volumes of data. With a scanning speed up to one million points per second, even the largest sites are catered for.
