Our client, an innovator in renewable energy, was planning additions and improvements to their advanced manufacturing facility in California. As their trusted 3d laser scanning service provider, we have now scanned several of this companies’ facilities. They needed a unified point cloud in full color which serves as a starting point for documenting the existing structure using 3d reality capture technology, which is where we come in.
The 3D laser scanning process took only a couple days onsite. With the equipment being compact and clean, we were able to work around their process equipment with no impact to their operations.
The resulting scan data , a point cloud comprising millions of points in 3d space, was utilized by the client for both measurement and spatial planning. We also provided them the option of creating an accurate, as-built CAD model. Arrival 3D routinely provides to clients both point cloud and as-built 3D model CAD models in Revit or other common CAD formats such as DWG, STP and Solidworks.
