What is 3D lidar Scanning?

3D lidar scanning, is the process of using a  tripod-mounted turret 3D scanner to accomplish a goal such as measuring the shape of an area or building. It is also known as 3d laser scanning or long range 3D scanning

What Can You Do with a lidar scanning?

  • Map out structure, piping and conduit to accurately plan changes to your facility
  • Engineer new product prototypes
  • Perform first article inspection, verifying that the part was built as designed
  • Create a 3D CAD model complete with 2D drawings having only the part for reference
  • Create a BIM model for building renovation
  • Make digital modifications to parts by changing their size or adding/removing features
  • Closely analyze parts for subtle flaws and fitment issues
