3D laser scanning

3D laser scanning is a very fast and accurate way of acquiring asbuilt data from real world objects and enables engineers / architects to work on sites remotely, design accurately and reduces clashes.

Precise and Accurate Results with 3D Laser Scanning in Construction

The biggest challenge in construction is the coordination among different contractors and subcontractors. The collaboration on BIM is a good fit to solve this issue on the design phase. When it comes to the construction phase, the same collaboration should be done. 3D laser scanning helps to control and verify the construction according to the design model. It can also help to see clashes according to the as built of the environment. Either to get measurements for floor flatness, or to see the progress of the construction, 3D laser scanning helps in various stages of the construction.

3D point cloud is an accurate and detailed representation of the existing conditions of a site. If the construction project is done on an existing structure, 3D laser scanning comes into play before the construction starts. Verification of the existing conditions is the first step before starting the construction project.

During the construction phase, laser scanning the site helps to compare the current phase against the design model, to verify what is built, and how accurately it is built. This repetitive process minimizes the clashes, lowers the amount of change orders and rework. The construction verification helps with quick and accurate quality control and quality assurance.

Floor flatness and floor levelness analysis is another special use of 3D laser scanning in construction. While being poured, the floor can be measured and analyzed for flatness and levelness and can be fixed accordingly.

Like the floor flatness, 3D scanning technology can aid in various deformation analysis for different needs. The completeness of the point cloud shows even the slightest deviations, which otherwise would not be seen if surveyed with traditional methods.

What is 3D laser scanning?

3D laser scanning is a technology that capture accurate and comprehensive data of existing conditionsIt is a non-contact, non-destructive method that uses a laser scanner to capture millions of data points. Laser scanning technology can be used in various fields such as architecture, engineering, construction, surveying, and archaeology. It is also a valuable tool that can help to control and verify construction progress, as well as identify potential clashes and measurement issues

Process of 3d laser scanning systems 

3D point cloud capture process requires extensive planning and attention to detail. When our experienced engineers arrive at the construction site, we begin by planning the locations of the scan stations and analyzing the need for targets. If the site is wide and complicated, our team would set up a control network to make sure the registration process is accurate.

After collecting the data, it must be processed and converted into a digital format suitable for creating the desired product. This involves various steps such as registration, coloring, filtering, and exporting the data for further use. While many laser scanner manufacturers offer cloud-based or automatic registration algorithms, we use target registrations connected with control networks for more precise projects, which ensures the best quality point cloud data. By using bundle adjustment methods, thousands of scans can be registered together with an RMS of under 5 mm.

Based on your project needs, we can provide either a detailed point cloud, BIM model, 2D CAD drawings or various analysis. These tools enable you to identify potential problems and make informed decisions before they become major issues. By using a laser scanning technology, construction professionals can reduce the risk of errors and avoid costly rework. It is a valuable tool for construction verification, as the data collected can be used to compare the actual construction to the design plans to ensure accuracy and quality assurance.
