The most important aspect of any new plan is understanding what you have to start out with. What are your assets? What is the starting point? Increasingly, companies are using the “reality capture” component of 3D scanning as the important first step in answering those questions.
3D scanning involves the use of a rotating laser that takes millions of measurements in mere minutes, delivering highly detailed 3D documentation. 3D images of complex environments and geometries can be generated with remarkable clarity in a fraction of the time it would take to perform the same work manually. While this technology is improving the workflow in multiple sectors, possibly the most significant benefits can be realized in the 3D modeling of process plants and factories.
3D scanning produces a high definition, three-dimensional, photographic quality image of whatever space you’re scanning. Those scans can then be applied to a multitude of tasks that can provide incredible value in the industrial environment.
