3D Laser Scanning
3D laser scanning is a non-contact and non-destructive technology that digitally documents the shape of physical objects using a line of laser light. 3D laser scanners create 3D scans, i.e. 3D point clouds, with data about the co-ordinates of the points captured from the surfaces of objects. In other words, 3D laser scanning is a way to represent a physical object’s exact size and shape as a 3-dimensional virtual reality.
3D Scanline implements 3D laser scanning in documenting buildings, facilities, installations, and infrastructures in public and industrial sectors, incl. architecture, archaeology, digital factories, natural conservations, robotics, shipbuilding, structural engineering, technical building equipment, etc.
3D Scanline fulfills 3D laser scanning projects by means of FARO Focus 3D S-120 Laser Scanner.
Using specific CAD solutions, the point cloud data are applied to create a 3D CAD model of the imaged reality.
Research and Development (R&D) is a specific group of activities within our business. The primary aim of our R&D is to discover and create new knowledge about scientific and technological topics for the purpose of development of valuable new products, processes, and services.
Since its foundation 3D Scanline has laid down the innovation strategy in its mission. In accordance with its corporate identity the company has taken part in several research projects devoted to different applications of the 3D laser scanning technology. The innovative solutions in the field of the 3D laser scan management, the integration of 3D laser scan data with FM systems, and the application of the 3D laser scanning in crime and accident investigations have become part of the corporate know how.
3D Scanline is able to provide new sophisticated solutions of interdisciplinary set of problems associated with the development of the 3D laser scanning technology.
Advantages of the 3D laser scanning among other structural survey technologies:
1. Non-Contact Measurements
- Measurements are performed out of areas of risk.
- Measurements are possible during operations.
- Surveys of complex objects are made in hard-to-reach environments.
2. Reduced Operative Costs
- No remeasurements.
- Reduced idle time.
3. Reliability of the Measurement Data.
- Homogeneous documentation of services.
- Documentation of details: fixtures, corners, edges, connections, etc.
- Simple reproducibility of the local conditions.
- Enormous information content for further analyses.
- Precise documentation for construction/reconstruction measures and process planning.
4. Increased Productivity.
- Short measurement time on site.
- Improved planning of activities.
- Usage of the same data record for diverse requests.
- Communication and time saving in the planning process
