Why is regular checking and calibration of rotating lasers important?

Construction sites are harsh environments that put incredible strain on rotating lasers. These instruments are not treated with a lot of care – they get dropped, knocked down or toppled over and may also become covered in dirt and concrete. In the majority of construction projects, rotating lasers face so many impacts during regular use that their accuracy can no

When to Use Laser Scanning in Building Construction

Laser scanning, also called high definition surveying (HDS), is a method of high-accuracy mapping or reality capture that uses laser beams to quickly capture complete detail of the entire building construction project—much like a camera taking a 360-degree photo, but with an accurate position for every pixel. This detailed 3D representation of the building project is often called a point cloud. Originally applied in
