PointSCAN offer a comprehensive range of specialist services which can save your business money. Using cutting edge equipment, provided by Faro, PointSCAN can cut a number of costly processes from your project.
Point cloud data
The point cloud data obtained from an on-site laser scan can be processed quickly and accurately and can then be analysed on the website in real time; alternatively, it can be converted into a complete 3D model. Instant access to this kind of quality resource saves time and money during the plan or analysis of your project.
Production of 2D documentation
PointSCAN can convert existing 2D plans, including layout and general arrangement drawings and Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (PIDs) into a digital format that can be viewed by many people in different locations.
2D plans to 3D CAD documentation
2D plans have a definite place in the life of design projects. But conversion of them into 3D CAD documentation is a powerful tool that can save on a number of fronts. Potential misinterpretation and confusion amongst the range of stakeholders in any project can arise from relying exclusively on 2D representations. Production of high-quality 3D CAD documentation leads to fewer ECOs (Engineering Change Order) and restricts the number of prototypes required. This streamlines the process and means that time and money is saved.
3D fly-throughs allow you to walk through a project using virtual reality technology. You can navigate every aspect of your design project and even interact with different features of the proposed design. 3D visualisation gives an unparalleled experience of the design that would have been impossible in years past. This means that every aspect of the design can be experienced by each of the project stakeholders ahead of construction, which, as with 3D CAD documentation, means saving time and money by limiting avoidable changes to the project further down the line.
3D presentations allow architects, engineers and designers to effectively communicate their ideas with each other that are intriguing and engaging. They do not require any specialist equipment to view, which saves on any cost of plug-ins. Once the presentation is constructed, there is no need to wait for rendering times, which also cuts costs.
3D laser surveys
Using 3D laser surveying means that comprehensive data can be captured, no matter what the scale of the project. It could range from small components to large-scale city projects. The cutting-edge equipment PointSCAN has access to means that whatever the scale of the project, it can be accurately scanned and represented in a number of ways. This can have a profound effect on the power of your marketing materials. Including 3D holographic projections and 360-degree interactive environments in your marketing materials can raise your profile and boost your resources, thereby saving your business money.
It should be clear from this brief overview that PointSCAN, using Faro's cutting-edge technology to carry out 3D laser scanning, engineering, documentation and visualisation, can save your business money in a wide range of ways.
