3d laser & point cloud scanning
Verify your work against the Revit model
3D laser scanners emits hundreds of thousands of points of amplified light per second to create ‘point clouds’ of data, which are extremely accurate representations of the scanned space.
3d laser scanning
Laser technology has been in common use since the 1960s, in everything from printers to surgical instruments. Today, it is revolutionising architecture, engineering and construction in the form of 3D laser scanners, which digitally capture the shape of physical objects and real-world spaces – such as construction sites or fit-outs. In this process, a 3D laser scanner emits hundreds of thousands of points of amplified light per second to create ‘point clouds’ of data, which are extremely accurate representations of the scanned space.
Drawable’s 3D laser scanner is a FARO Focus S 70, which has a range from 0.6 to 70 metres with an incredible 1mm accuracy (depending on settings).
Drawable’s 3D laser scanner is a FARO Focus S 70, which has a range from 0.6 to 70 metres with an incredible 1mm accuracy (depending on settings). It emits up to 976,000 points per second to capture detailed measurements of complex objects and spaces. This ultra-portable, lightweight device can be set up on site and ready to go within minutes, mounted on a floor tripod or even suspended in an inverted position from above. Although it runs off 19V external power, this versatile unit also has a battery life of 4.5 hours so can operate under virtually any conditions.
The Building Information Modelling (BIM) experts at Drawable use the scanner data to provide complete verification of the work you have done on your project.
how we use it
The Building Information Modelling (BIM) experts at Drawable use the scanner data to provide complete verification of the work you have done on your project, whatever your trade. At any stage of your build or installation, our highly trained operator can attend your site and perform the scan with minimal disruption to any works in progress. We then interface the captured scan data with the 3D model, for quick and accurate confirmation that your model fulfils the tolerance required in your tender documentation.
