Laser scanning

Laser scanning

Do you require a point cloud? For our experienced customers familiar with point cloud usage, we offer laser scan data in various widely used industry formats, such as RCP, PTX, POD, PTS, E57, LAS, and more.

Who Benefits? 

3D Laser scanning is a service experiencing increasing popularity, owing to its exceptional accuracy and the ability to generate digital 3D models and digital twins from these measurements. 

Here are some of the primary groups that find laser scanning to be of significant interest: 

  • Architecture and Engineering Firms: For object reconstruction and renovation. 
  • Construction Companies: For routine site inspections, maintaining construction and installation work quality, adhering to deadlines, and identifying errors early on. 
  • Oil & Gas Production Facilities: To promptly identify and rectify deformations and damages, monitor wear and tear, schedule planned maintenance, and prevent accidents. 
  • Chemical Plants: Laser scanning is particularly valuable for piping equipment, helping to avert conflicts that may have gone unnoticed until the construction phase. 
  • Marine Industry: Used to detect potential hull deflections, inspect each stage of erection for deviations from design, survey intricate surfaces, and explore inaccessible or damaged areas for redesign. 
  • Gaming and Movie Industry: For crafting realistic landscapes, visual effects, storyboarding, and location scouting. 
  • Educational Institutions and Training Departments: Creating VR/AR applications and courses for students and employees. 
  • City Administrations: For regular inspections and timely maintenance of road networks, transport, bridges, tunnels, and utility infrastructure. 
  • Forensic Examination: Producing 3D accident site models with precise object locations and distances for investigative purposes. 
  • Cartography and Geodesy: Creating area plans, maps, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). 
  • Archaeology: For restoring and preserving ancient artifacts. 
  • Paleontology: Crafting missing parts of skeletons discovered during excavations.» 

What’s the Challenge? 

Laser scanning remains an innovative service that contends with the persistence of traditional operational methods. The primary challenge lies in the limited understanding of laser scanning technology itself. The tangible outcomes and transformative impact that this technology can introduce to businesses are often uncertain. 

Outlined below are some of the most prevalent challenges and concerns raised by our customers: 

  • As-Built Requirements: The demand for accurate as-built measurements, drawings, drafts, and plans arises typically before renovation or modernization efforts. Swift and precise measurements of intricate objects accompanied by comprehensive drawings and cross-sections are often essential. 
  • Documentation Streamlining: Streamlining documentation processes (such as room books, area calculations based on standards like DIN 277, rental area determinations, etc.) can be achieved after laser scanning. 
  • Digital Archiving: When the need arises to create digital replicas of existing building archives and plans. 
  • Building Information Modeling (BIM): A common need is to develop a building information model. Clients often seek BIM for diverse reasons, aiming to possess an accurate digital tool both for present use and long-term purposes. 
  • Preventive Maintenance: Vital for planned maintenance and the prevention of accidents in contexts like oil tanks, ships, bridges, tunnels, and utility infrastructure. 
  • Error Mitigation: Anticipating and mitigating errors during the planning stages of restructuring and renovations (for instance, preemptively identifying potential collisions). 
  • Surface Inspection: Surveying intricate surfaces and inaccessible or damaged areas, crucial for claims, redesigns, and timely inspections. 
  • VR/AR Education: Scanning large spaces and all associated objects to create realistic VR/AR educational training experiences.
