How long does it take, and how much does it cost?
We can often scan a floor in one day. The time needed is primarily dependent on the size of the scan scope area. Costs start at $2,500 plus travel.
How accurate is a 3D scan of a floor?
Generally the scans are accurate to within 1mm and can capture features on the floor in high detail. It is even possible to capture color, such as if there are marks on the floor that are of interest. The scanner also records the orientation of the scans. When true level matters, as in which direction is truly up, we utilize a 3D laser scanner that has an extremely accurate sensor onboard that can tell which way gravity is oriented. This sensor is called a dual-axis compensator. This is important in applications where you may be analyzing the direction that water will flow or the capacity that a dike will hold.
