How Can 3D Laser Scanning Help You?

Looking to save time, energy, and money? Here’s the ultimate scanning guide of everything you need to know about 3D laser scanning in construction. Every Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) professional would significantly benefit from 3D laser scanning services. The use of laser scanning has slowly taken over the AEC industry. With the integration of BIM software and 3D scanning services, it seems like the perfect solution for many problems encountered in the profession.

As every AEC professional knows, accurate as-built building information is critical to any project’s success. This information extracted from a 3D laser scanning service helps all parties involved significantly expedite the design processes, as it uses highly accurate, baseline information. It’s even able to reduce rework/change orders, as it’s able to detect clashes. It keeps projects on schedule and saves significant time and money.

3D Scanning in Construction

Real estate 3D scanning services capture a three-dimensional image of an object in the form of a point cloud. Shape components are recorded, as millions of digital points are virtually plotted, generating a point cloud. After the scan on site is complete, the point cloud data extracted is translated into a 2D or 3D format, depending on the clients’ needs.

BIM, an acronym for Building Information Modeling, is a modern approach to architectural design where a 3D model facilitates the construction process for design efficiency. Architectural BIM Modeling makes it possible to visualize a building and foresee its appearance before the construction, thus, allowing for improved decision-making on the project.

Majority of firms in the AEC industry opt to use BIM programs, like AutoDesk Revit, for their projects. After the site is scanned, the data is registered and then detailed. The point cloud generated serves as an underlay for an as-built BIM.

The latest advancement in 3D scanning technology is becoming more accessible everywhere. They’re already becoming critical tools for construction companies. Integrating a scan-to-BIM service provider, like Robotic Imaging, guarantees more efficiency and faster decision making. AEC professionals are better equipped to handle whatever conflict arises in these projects.
