3D Laser Scanning

0000 3D Laser Scanning Technology. If you are not familiar with the term “3d laser scanning”, it may bring to mind barcode scanning or body scanning at the airport. While a 3D laser scanner may look a little like alien technology, it is in fact a very down-to-earth combination of electronics and precision optics packed into a robust, portable unit. 3D laser scanning creates a digital representation of a physical object in the form of a point cloud which can later be converted into a …

Houston Turbine Scan and Modeling

0000Arrival was asked to perform a 3D scan on a turbine train in the Houston area. Scanning a turbine train requires about a day of long range scanning. Preparation for scanning such as laying out targets, inspecting crucial and tight spots, and planning the scanning locations takes about an hour. A turbine train can require around 25 to 32 scans depending on its size. Each scan can take up to 10 min depending on the customer’s accuracy requirement.  Raw scans are then processed …
