HOW 3D LASER SCANNING WORKS
Our experienced laser scanning technicians will strategically position a laser scanner throughout your project area collecting millions of data points to create a comprehensive digital picture of the site.
Whether presented as a point cloud or a digital model, this data allows you to explore and measure the space more accurately than any other source can provide.
Why Choose Thew?
Our commitment to utilizing the best technology available to capture accurate geospatial data has led our firm to adopt laser scanning. Our foundation in land surveying is what separates Thew Associates from other laser scanning services providers by ensuring a geospatially accurate point cloud.
Common 3d Laser Scanning Uses
Laser Scanning Service FAQ's
3D Laser Scanning utilizes a laser for the purpose of capturing precise and detailed 3D measurements of objects, spaces, and surfaces. The process operates by gauging the distance that exists between the scanner and the target, thereby creating a point cloud of data through the use of laser beams.
3D Laser Scanning allows for exponentially faster and more complete data collection when compared to traditional methods which reduces costs and lead times for design and construction projects.
It finds application in the design and construction industries for various
purposes such as capturing capturing as-built data of pre-existing structures,
designing and planning new projects, and monitoring the progress of
construction. In addition, it assists in identifying potential issues in design and
construction, leading to reduced costs and better outcomes for the project.
3D laser scanning works by emitting a laser beam onto the surface of an object or environment. The laser scanner measures the time taken for the beam to bounce back, creating a point cloud of data that represents the shape and geometry of the scanned area.
You can easily find laser scanning services near you by searching online directories or platforms that connect businesses with service providers. Simply enter "laser scanning services + your location" and explore the available options.
Yes, there are various types of laser scanning services available. Some providers specialize in specific industries or applications, such as architectural scanning, industrial scanning, or heritage preservation scanning. It's important to find a provider that aligns with your specific needs.
The cost of laser scanning services can vary depending on factors such as the size and complexity of the project, the required level of detail, and the location of the scanning. It's best to contact several service providers and request quotes to get an idea of the potential costs.
Absolutely! Laser scanning is extensively used in historical preservation projects to digitally preserve and document cultural heritage sites, artifacts, and buildings. It allows for accurate restoration, reproduction, and conservation efforts while minimizing potential damage to the original structures or objects.
