3D laser scanning engineering is an exciting technology that has many, varied applications. The most commonly talked about and recognised is probably 3D laser surveys that are used in the property sector to facilitate the creation of 3D visualisation projects such as 3D walk-throughs and 3D fly-bys.
Some of the industries already using 3D laser technology
There are many other industries and projects that can benefit from this technology. Industry sectors include:
• Built heritage
• Facility management
• Engineering, fabrication and manufacturing
• Interior design
• Police, accident reconstruction and security
Wherever detailed data and information is required in order to create or modify something, 3D laser scanning could be the most appropriate answer.
3D laser scanning for construction and engineering
The exciting thing about 3D laser scanning engineering technology is its ability to capture enormous amounts of intricate detail relating to any subject matter, whether that subject matter is a building or a small, complicated engineering component. But that is not all. Because the scanning process is relatively fast, it can be very cost-effective when compared to other traditional survey methods. For example, it does away with the need for constructing scaffolding in order to carry out surveys.
Enhance project planning
3D documentation is another astonishing end product of the 3D laser scanning process. Not only can it be used in still form to provide engaging presentations for sales and marketing, it can also be incorporated into project management planning.
When this type of documentation is used as part of the planning process, it engages with all members of a project team. Seeing the targeted end-result of any project in stunning 3D virtual reality, really focuses the mind. It drives increased efficiency and higher performance.
The ability to scan hazardous areas and environments
Another important benefit that 3D laser scanning brings to the party, is from a health and safety point of view. The 3D scanning process can be carried out in areas where health and safety dictates it is hazardous to go. For example, in the construction industry this would relate to areas containing asbestos, or in manufacturing environments, where hazardous processes are taking place that could endanger conventional surveyors.
The fact that accurate 3D scanning can be carried out in hazardous situations means that businesses can gain invaluable, clear and concise visibility into a project. This can then help to forestall mistakes or help to correct errors.
Historic heritage meets cutting-edge 3D laser scanning
Our historic heritage can now be renovated and maintained even more effectively thanks to today’s cutting-edge 3D laser scanning technology. Intricate data can be collected to assist with deterioration studies. The 3D survey process is far less intrusive than conventional survey methods, meaning that a site’s integrity can be more easily protected. Also, as with many historic heritage buildings, surveying at height is dangerous. 3D scanning lessens the risk.
