Here Comes the Next Big Technological Boom: Drones in Construction

Increasing numbers of construction companies and civil and environmental engineering consultancies are turning to drones to capture rich aerial data and generate detailed—and financially valuable—3D models of earthwork and building sites. See the projections on how the use of these technologies will increase and how a team using drones, cameras, and laser scanners were able to produce textured, 3D mesh

Why laser scanning is becoming so popular

I’ve noticed how laser scanning is reaching even more markets than it currently serves. As well as gaining greater traction in ‘traditional’ application areas such as topographic surveying, engineering & infrastructure, and process plant; terrestrial laser scanning is being rapidly adopted by a range of diverse markets, including Building Information Modelling (BIM), Digital Construction, Interior Finishing and Forensics. In addition

[Webcast] Factory Design: See the Advantages of Laser Scanning

You need to be sure the data you are using to design or reconfigure your factory is as accurate as possible. To do this, the industry is moving away from relying on potentially out-of-date CAD drawings for capturing as-built facilities. Scanning is the most easily attainable and reliable source of truth and is used in conjunction with CAD. And, scanning

ebook: 3D Laser Scanning for Manufacturing Facilities Developing the Business Case

Reduce Rework: Using 3D laser scanning to capture existing conditions in the plant makes it possible to automatically create accurate sections and elevations. Cut Costs: While conventional methods require 10 engineers with overlapping responsibilities, laser scanning can be completed with just 4 people. Retool With Confidence: Supplying service providers with accurate 3D as-builts yields more accurate cost estimates with greater accountability. Learn how
