Frequently Asked Questions about Laser Scanning Services

Oct 1st 2015 at 12:50 AM

Laser scanning services (particularly 3D scanning) are still in their adoption phase as far as surveying technologies are concerned. This is why many still have their reservations about their use over traditional methodologies and techniques. Here are some frequently asked questions about laser scanning services you might also be wondering about:

What is 3D laser scanning?

3D laser scanning is an accurate means of capturing 3 dimensional data in a wide range of settings, regardless of the surface and size of the scanned object's or area's features. Scanning services can survey small to large-scale structures, including their landscapes and produce high definition 3D renderings or raw data of the scan, quicker than most other types of scanning techniques.

Why do you need 3D laser scanning?

Using laser scanning services reduces time and cost for new projects or re-structuring/remodeling endeavors. It is a time-saving alternative and a highly accurate substitute to other methods of scanning and surveying, especially when you need a highly accurate data output about a particular area.

What should you look for in a laser scanning service?

When hiring a laser scanning service, choose one that offers cutting edge technology, software, and equipment and one that follows industry trends. Keeping up to date with industry changes is important so you can take advantage of the new technologies, trends, and techniques that the field offers.

Look for a scanning service that employs formally trained professionals so you can focus on your core competencies and be sure about the quality of data and output they produce. Find a company that offers expertise on your field, whether your project requires engineering, IT, architecture, construction, or a combination of other expertise. This also means reliable professional support throughout your project.

What is BIM?

BIM or building information modeling goes beyond a 3D model, in that it provides engineers the ability to manage building data throughout its life-cycle. It includes manufacturer details, accurate spatial relationships, and geographic information, on top of other aspects of the building pertinent to the project at hand.

What is HD scanning?

HD or high-definition scanning allows for highly accurate 3D scanning over a wide range of settings. It is ideal for digitizing different types of as-built constructions and proposed reconstructions/additions to existing buildings. HD scanning is also ideal for use in surveying large areas during construction in order to make sure that the plan or design is being implemented/executed properly.
