About 3D Laser Scanning
3D laser scanning is a Non-intrusive means of rapidly collecting detailed and accurate “As-Is” data.
The 3D laser scanner emits a narrow eye-safe laser beam that “sweeps across” a target object gathering literally millions of closely spaced measurements in a matter of minutes.
These measurements are grouped into a compressed point cloud databases that can be easily manipulated on standard desktop and laptop computers displaying a dense representation of the scene.
Data can be viewed, navigated and analyzed much like a 3D model in traditional CAD systems
3D Laser Scanners are (Eye-safe)
Using Class 1 or 3R Laser Product
Using 3D Laser Scanners Increases Productivity
- > 50,000 (Time of flight 3D laser Scanners) points per second
- > 1,000,000 (Phase-Based 3D laser Scanners) points per second
Using 3D Laser Scanners Increased Accuracy
- Accuracy of single measurement
- Position – 6 mm (1/4”)
- Distance – 4 mm (1/6”)
- Modeled surface precision
- 2mm (1/12”) std. deviation
Benefits of Laser Scanning
