3D Scanning A Coal Bunker

A 3d Scanning services is my choice

Having a job is definitely better than not, but there are are some jobs that are much more preferable to others. There are a lot of jobs that I think would be a little hard to endure. For example, sitting in the parking ticket kiosk at an airport. Sitting there in that small hut all day would drive me nuts. I also don’t think I would want to be an assembly line worker. The monotony of such a job would turn me bonkers. Then there is the outhouse cleaner at campgrounds. That job would suck. Another bad one would be working in a coal bunker. The environment would be hot, sweaty and a bit dangerous. Having to poke my head into the bunker and estimate how much coal is there would not be fun. If I did have to do that, though, I would definitely make use of 3D scanning services to get the job done.

Use 3D Scanning services for those dirty jobs

It’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it. So if that person is you, then you might as well try to get it done as efficiently as possible. Imagine peering in through the top of the bunker with nothing but a handheld light and trying to estimate the volume of coal that is in the bunker. You move the flashlight around the cylinder, but it is hard guess with the shadows and the uneven level of the coal. The best you can do is to just make a rough estimate and hope it is close. That doesn’t sound like a very satisfying job to me. There have to be a better way to go about it. There has to be a way know exactly what the volume of coal is in there. In fact, there is. The job is easy using 3D scanning services. With 3D scanning services, the task is a “one and done” job that doesn’t leave you second guessing yourself. A 3D scan leaves no room for human error. Time for lunch!

Get it done fast with 3D scanning services

The beauty about 3D scanning services jobs are that the onsite work is fast and accurate the calculating work can be done back at the office on your computer with a bag of chips and diet Mountain Dew. The concept of using 3D scanning services to calculate the amount of coal in the bunker is simple. All they really need to know is the exact dimensions of the bunker. If they know the total potential volume that the bunker can carry, then they can get the coal volume pretty easily. They just need open up the lid and scan the remaining space between the coal and the top of the bunker. There is no need to worry about the fact that the coal is not level. Once the inside area of the bunker is scanned, the digital model that be analyzed to get the exact volume of space.

  It seems that 3D scanning services can make a hard job a lot more easier. I wonder what other jobs just might be improved simply by using 3D scanning.
