    scanner with piping

    start your project right with a 3d laser scan in Milwaukee

    Our expert scanning team will work closely with you to clearly understand your needs and make sure that the scan scope includes everything that is needed to set you up for success. 

    Today’s 3d laser scanners are faster and more accurate than ever, allowing us to take more scans and deliver accuracy down to 1mm. Hundreds or even thousands of individual scan locations can be taken of your facility to make sure that we get complete and thorough coverage. 

    Scanning can be done indoor or outdoor, day or night and can be done in operational facilities where people are working. 

    processing and registration brings it all together

    After the on-site 3d scanning in Milwaukee is complete, we process the massive amounts of collected data to prepare it for CAD modeling. This processing includes: 

    • Aligning individual scans together
    • Trimming away un-needed or unwanted data
    • Performing quality analysis and quality checking
    • Positioning the data in the preferred coordinate system

    receive your desired output such as an Autodesk REvit model

    We utilize a large team of experienced CAD modelers to create as-built 3D models at any level-of-detail (LOD) that you choose. 

    The model scope can cover the entire facility or be limited to certain areas based on your needs and budget.

    QZ/QC is utilized throughout the process, ensuring that you receive a Revit model that is accurate, of high quality and made with professional standards.

    Applications of 3D scanning in Milwaukee Include:

    Renovating an old multi-story building

    When planning and engineering for multi-million dollar projects such as a large building renovation, it is critical that things go right. 3D scanning up front allows engineers to draw up precise plans and drawings that minimize conflicts during construction. The scan serves as an invaluable resource for many interested parties in such a project. 

    Update P&ID's for a gas plant

    A plant in the oil and gas industry will change over time, that is without question. This results in the P&ID drawings of record ultimately becoming out of date. 3D laser scanning provides a dual benefit of not only providing a way to update P&ID’s but also provides a truly accurate as-built reference 3D model of the plant. We feel that an as-built 3D model combined with smart P&ID’s is the way of the future.

    measure floor flatness

    3D laser scanning provides a better way of measuring and visualizing floor flatness than the old FL and FF method as measured with a ruler. When you use a 3D scanner you get extremely thorough and accurate results that can be depicted as color maps for a deep understanding of the floor’s shape.

    obtain a 3d model of an aircraft

    Scanning an airplane is a fantastic way to capture it’s shape. We can scan interior and exterior and convert it into a CAD model or STL mesh depending on your needs. From small single seaters to airliners, we are the best at aircraft 3D scanning and would be delighted to scan an aircraft for your company.

    determine whether something will fit

    You may have a pump that you need to lower into a channel, and you want to see if it will fit before lowering it in and getting stuck. Or perhaps you have a large vault door that hasn’t been opened in years, and you want to know if it will scrape the concrete. 3D scanning can answer these questions so you can proceed with confidence.  

    create a virtual reality walkthrough

    Imagine walking around your digital model, with the clouds moving in the breeze and the equipment so real it seems like you could touch it. That is the experience we can provide with your 3D model created from 3D laser scanning. 

    Obtain as-built models of a power plant

    Many power plants have outdated as-built drawings. 3D scanning provides a way to obtain updated drawings in the form of 3D CAD models of structural steel, ducts, equipment and piping. Armed with accurate models, your engineers can route new designs around existing objects, avoiding potential clashes and interferences during new construction.

    Design to fit existing pipes, vessels and equipment

    When a processing plant adds a new product line, there is new piping and equipment that needs to be installed. With careful planning and the as-built drawings obtained from doing 3D laser scanning, the new piping designs can be engineered for precise fit, minimizing installation delays due to unforeseen conflicts.

    P2D Plans for Permits

    3D laser scanning is very efficient at capturing floors, walls and ceiling of building interiors as well as anything outdoors. from the scan we can quickly generate plan and elevation views that you can use as a basis for various purposes like obtaining permits. 

    as-built reference for boats, ships & vessels

    3D laser scanning can capture the exterior or interior of a sea-going vessel. Any sized boat, ship or vessel can be scanned. For smaller boats (depending on location) this can be done in a day. The scan can be turned into 2D drawings for use by a naval architect, or into 3D solid models for various types of analysis.

    analyze wind turbine towers for defects

    Wind Turbines can be scanned safely and easily from ground level. Scans can be used to analyze to identify any dents that may be present, and map out their location and depth. Scans can also be used to analyze the tower has a whole, and determine whether it has been structurally compromised after a failure event.

    track constructino progress with photos

    Panoramic images captured from a 3D camera can quickly and thoroughly document a construction site, making it easy for you to track progress and manage teams more effectively.
