3D laser scanning is a non-contact, non-destructive process of accurately capturing an object or area in digital format.
3D scanning can be an invaluable tool to review and collaborate with associates in your engineering , maintenance and management departments. It can also provide a visual record of condition and status of the subject matter whether it is a manhole or a substation.
We use a Faro FocusX130 laser scanner to capture the raw scan data. We process the scan data with a scan registration program that combines multiple overlapping 3D scan point clouds to produce a very precise composite digital 3D pointcloud Scene project. The 3D Scene project is then exported as an autodesk Recap Project.
The work product can be examined and manipulated in 3D virtual space with SceneLT© or Autodesk Recap© .
