New 3D Laser Scanning Program for Construction
Allowing faster movement and processing time
In architecture, engineering, and construction or AEC, it is crucial to have exact layouts of the spots being developed or constructed. To gather this information, teams of people would need to go out and evaluate the site multiple times before starting the construction process. Now a new program has come out called SiteScape that allows these jobs to gain faster insight through 3D laser scanning.
There is so much use for this technology; it is no wonder many companies are competing to come out with the latest and greatest version. SiteScape has directly targeted a fast-growing industry that needs to speed up the processing time and allow things to move faster. The founder of this company, Andy Putch, put out a beta app for the real-time point capture app that could help millions of construction crews.
This new app using 3D laser scanning can help process a site faster, progress monitoring, easily document all changes, and allow users to remotely collaborate even when they are no longer on the site. This can lead to many phenomenal changes in the industry and maybe help with traffic around the areas being worked on. This app provides a freeway for beginners to start experiencing what they can do with 3D laser scanning.
What is 3D laser scanning
This technology is one of the best ways to gather information on anything you need to study. It captures small and obscure details that may go missed by the human eye. It does not require taking molds or measurements. The 3D laser scanning device does that for you.
It works by capturing small points on an object, but thousands of small points. It uses lasers to capture these, and those tiny lasers are being measured by the distance they travel. There is also a camera attached to it that captures the physical details rapidly.
It takes thousands of pictures per minute and helps create fuller-looking pictures. This camera helps pick up things like shape, size, holes, divots, scratches, other textures, and colors. Every detail you can think of is picked up with this small handheld device. Another cool thing about this technology is that even though it is small, it can scan very large rooms and gigantic objects that would otherwise be hard to observe.
This device was created in the 1960s but was never adopted until the 1990s. Since then, several apps that use the idea of 3D laser scanning have come out, making it more accessible than ever before. Soon everyone will have the option to choose some kind of 3D laser scanner.
This technology will shape the way we go about doing construction, designing a room, and even designing a building. There is no doubt that this equipment will begin to develop into our phones and be used daily. 3D laser scanning has entered our world at full force and is here to stay for the future. No other technology can take the place of a high tech scanner.
