This may be booked as an additional service or used on current schemes to support site investigations, with major benefits for both the client and ourselves to ensure the most accurate solutions are designed at the earliest stage.
A ‘3D point cloud’ is produced from each individual scan which is then digitally stitched together to provide a full 3D model of the object which has been scanned. It is possible to provide detailed internal or external elevations which can be drawn to a very high level of detail. Cross-sections and sectional elevations can be viewed once the point cloud data has been rendered, meaning that extremely accurate floor plans and cross-sections can be drawn.
When a site has been surveyed using laser scanning techniques, it is very rare that a return site visit will be needed. This is due to the high detail and density which is recorded from the laser scanner.
The FARO Focus 3D X 330 can scan large and distant objects up to 330 meters away and in direct sunlight. With an integrated GPS receiver, the laser scanner is able to correlate individual scans in post-processing making it ideal for surveying-based applications.
