Laser scanning is the latest technology that is taking the industry by storm, thanks to its efficiency and accuracy. Professionals and clients will be able to save time and money when it comes to 3D laser.
So how does it work?
3D laser scanning works by emitting millions of laser lights and timing their return. What it does is it calculates the locations of the object/site and produce high-speed scans all together in a system. The dimensions and spatial relationships of objects are digitally captured through the reflection of the laser lights. The reason why it’s so popular is because it’s very versatile. It can be used in several job site applications such as construction projects, virtual design and construction (VDC), 3D measurement, quality control, building information modelling (BIM), 3D CAD Modelling, 3D survey, point cloud survey, comparison of design intent to as-built conditions, and many more.

3 Major Reasons Why 3D Scanning is Important
While its work and the results speak for itself as to why you should get into 3D laser scanning, let us give you a quick rundown of why it’s relevant for this type of work.
- When scanning objects and site conditions, millions of data points are recorded, including the ones that the manual inspection cannot see or overlooks. 3D scanning makes it possible to deliver an accurate depiction, which is called the point cloud.
- Because it’s versatile and has many functions, this can be used by many professionals like surveyors, architects, engineers, project managers, builders and manufacturers.
- Before 3D scanning technology, manual inspection and measurement took considerable time to collect exact data and often the designer had to work through several costly trial and errors. Now, you can bid all of that goodbye!
Fast, versatile and accurate —- those are the three words that best describe 3D laser scanning. Design and construction projects and retrofits or refurbishments are now easier and better because of all its combined feature. Now who doesn’t want that?
Not only will you have better work results, but also be way ahead of the competition! Be one of the first to embrace this new trend that is surely here to say. Witness your growth as you rise above others in speed, precision and quality.
It’s no secret that Sydney is a thriving and busy city. There are tourists going in and out, locals being locals and businesses just popping out of nowhere. If you didn’t know, Sydney’s construction industry is booming like no other.
Contractors have work all around the city involving rail projects. There are also activities in road and tunnel construction which has increased over the years for developments in outer Sydney. With that said, the construction industry employs over a million people, and the demand for commercial building continues to grow each year. Contact our Sydney Office to find out more.
