Laser scanning is state-of-the-art technology that can provide accurate as-built information fast and cost-effectively.
all3D Oy offers you a flexible and tailor made service for your laser scanning project, whether it is just providing the scan data or managing a major project. Depending on the site, the equipment used, and the customer’s requirements, the point cloud can be measured with millimetre-precision. We will help you find the right solution for your needs.
Our service portfolio includes:
- Post treatment
- Modelling based on scan data
- Drawing creation
- As Built documentation
- Support and consulting
What is laser scanning?
Laser scanning is a non-contact measuring method which uses a laser beam to find the 3D position of a point on an object’s surface. These points form the so called point cloud. This point cloud is a precise capture of a physical object’s size and shape and can be imported to a computer for further treatment and visualisation.
There are different types of laser scanners. They can be separated into several types including terrestrial, aerial, mobile, desktop and hand scanners.
Benefits of 3D Laser Scanning
- Scans with many million points in just a couple of minutes
- Reduced survey and inspection times
- Depending on application millimetre or even sub millimetre -precision
- Enables to reduce fabrication tolerances
- Scanning over far distances possible
- Less exposure to hazardous environments
- Data can be transferred to almost any CAD system
- Easy site setup enables flexible scheduling
- Complicated objects and structures can be measured
- Shorter planning and design time
- Less rework
- Less engineering errors due to missing information
What are possible applications for 3D Laser Scanning?
- Safe and reliable planning in complex environments
- Project time reduction due to precise information
- Cost saving due to project time reduction
