Flip It: Leica ScanStation P40 scans upside down

Cement and concrete supplier finds unique application for the Leica ScanStation P40. An above ground opening was growing, causing a safety issue on a site in Vera Cruz, Mexico. With innovative thinking, the Leica ScanStation was inverted to capture the required data. Cementos Moctezuma needed to measure and monitor the shaft radius. Secondary to this, was the need to measure

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
