Applications for 3D Scanning

Applications of 3D Laser Scanning

3D CAD Modeling

We can convert the laser scan to 3d CAD formats  including AutoCAD and Solidworks

3D Design

3D scanning data can be utilized as a reference per your requirements to assist you in the design of new parts and facilities.

Reverse Engineering

We use 3d laser scanners to precisely measure your existing part or indoor/outdoor space and produce a digitized replica in the form of a 3D model in a format useful to you.

3D Printing

Small objects such as those sculpted by hand can be scanned adn electronically resized, allowing the same object to be printed at a smaller, larger or similar scale. An example would be scaling down a life-sized human statue into a 3-ft figurine.

Planning

Laser scanning can increase the accuracy of planning facility augmentation by providing a reliable 3D model of existing conditions with which to plan against. It allows prototypes to be engineered to fit along side existing infrastructure.

Metrology

High definition laser scanners can make very price measurements, useful for inspection of manufactured parts for quality control. 

Intereference & clash detection

New equipment designs can be compared with point-could generated as-build models to discover areas of potential conflict.

Fly-through and Walk-through Animations and Video

3D models extracted from point clouds can be used to create realistic video fly-throughs for many purposes including marketing and educational applications.

2D Plans

LPrecise 2D diagrams and drawings can be generated from the laser scanned data, including 2D floorplans, DWG/DXF/SLDDRW files, orthophotos, site plans, sections, elevations, and profiles.
