    Never miss a project or deadline. Hire 3D scanning professionals to help save your engineers time and save your company money.

    Satisfaction Guaranteed

    If we ever fail to deliver on what we promised and we can't make it right, you don't pay.

    3D scanning in philadelphia solves problems like:

    • Easily obtain an as-built CAD model where none existed before
    • Perform simulation and analysis
    • Analyze whether something is flat, such as a floor or wall, or round such as a tank
    • Create a full set of 2D and 3D drawings
    • Create an As-Built Revit model for building renovation
    • Create a Solidworks model for manufacturing
    • Plan the floor layout during a renovation or restoration
    • Capture the exact shape of something to analyze it for flaws

    What can you get from long range 3D scanning in philadelphia?

    Several options are available to suit your needs and budget: 

    Option #1: raw Scan point cloud Files

    Here, you get the raw point cloud files straight out of the scanner. This is the “do-it-yourself” option without having to obtain a scanner and do the work.

    Option #2: Registered Scans

    Here, you get a point cloud project that is fully registered. We carefully align the many scans taken, proviing you full color point clouds that are viewable in free or low-cost software such as Autodesk Recap where you can take spot measurements and view panoramic images. You can also import the point clouds CAD software such as Autodesk Revit and Navisworks.

    Option #3: 3D CAD model

    Here, we do all of the heavy lifting for you and you get a CAD model that can be opened directly within your CAD program such as AutoCAD, Revit, Navisworks, Solidworks and more. In addition, you also get the registered scan point cloud so you have the raw data for viewing, further processing and future use. 

    additional options

    In addition to the standard packages, there are a number of options that can be requested, including: 

    Custom Alignment

    If you need your scan or CAD model to be aligned to a plant coordinate system, specific survey monument points, state plane coordinates, or even aligned to a CAD drawing, we can make it happen. 

    PANORAMIC VIEW OF PLANT

    Panoramic images

    Put yourself in the plant using beautiful, full color HD images that can be included with your 3D scan. They allow you to visit the facility from your desk, have a look around and explore the plant layout. You can even take spot measurements directly from the photos, check elevations, mark locations and leave comments for your colleagues. Free viewer included.

    2D Plan and elevation drawings

    2D drawings are a low-cost, natural byproduct of creating a 3D model using Revit. We can provide these as add-ons to your 3D CAD model. They are available in DWG, DXF or PDF format.

    Unified point clouds

    Often the biggest headache and worry about working with 3d laser scans is the sheer size of the data. Large scans will bog down even the most powerful desktop workstations, let alone the typical computers that engineers have to work with. To help with this problem we can deliver the point cloud as a unified one, where all of the scans have been combined into one and the point spacing has been optimized to provide the minimum level of detail while minimizing file size. 

    Export to generic standard formats

    There are many different 3D laser scanner manufacturers, and they all use their own proprietary formats. But thankfully, for a small fee these scans can be converted into generic, neutral formats that can be imported into your favorite software. These formats include E57, PTS, XYZ and others. 

    flatness or other inspection reports

    You can compare the scan to perfect geometry and receive color map inspection reports such as floor flatness reports, tank roundness, tower straightness,

    as-built or design-intent CAD modeling

    In a perfect world, everything is flat, straight and plumb. But in reality, everything built is wavy, crooked and not quite level, to some small degree. The scanner picks up all of these flaws, so when receiving a CAD model from us, you can choose whether the model should reflect these flaws, making it an “as-built” model rather than a “design intent” model.

    Volume Calculation

    We can measure volumes of stockpiles, dike capacity, interior room air volume or any other custom volume or surface area calculation.
