Highly accurate 3D laser scanning is an efficient alternative to traditional survey work where a large amount of detail is required. The technology can be used to complete photorealistic scans of buildings, structures, open spaces and other natural or engineered environments with exceptional speed and precision.

3d Scanning applications

Many of the applications possible with 3D scanning are identified below however there will be a significant number more uses, we just simply didn't have the space to include them all. They can include scanning culverts, cliffs, banks and other natural environments through to television locations and film sets.

We are also able to offer 3D Scanner Hire - contact us today for rates and our free training offer.

Construction

  • Pre-design 3D dimensioning and modelling
  • CAD and Revit model generation
  • QA during build by comparing the scan data to design
  • Integral 3D component of BIM model
  • Clash detection and identifying potential design issues - before building starts!

transport

  • Capture all detail quickly and accurately including overhead lines, signs, kerb and channel, road surface, surrounding buildings, walls and fences
  • Capture and analyse pavement surface
  • Initial data is available within hours of completing scanning
  • Safety - no need for staff to be on the road pavement
  • More cost-effective than traditional survey techniques

power and utilities

  • Capture and modelling of overhead wires and structures
  • Remote scanning of pipes and culverts.
  • Modelling of the physical environment, enabling accurate and cost-effective design
  • Repeat scans to monitor and model change
  • Easily extract a DTM/contours for ground modelling, overland flowpath
  • Data supplied as pointcloud or a preferred 3D model format for direct import into your software

bim

  • Scanning of the existing building and surrounding environment is often the first component of a successful BIM project.
  • Generate survey-accurate 3D CAD drawings (DWG), floor plans and elevations
  • Enable detailed 3D pointcloud to be transformed into information-rich Revit models
  • Recon welcomes partnership opportunities if you think your company offers complimentary services

heritage

  • Capture the entire site dimensions and condition quickly and accurately
  • Ideal for remediation work or earthquake strengthening
  • Generate models and templates for rebuilding key heritage components
  • Build informative models for teaching and AR/VR applications
  • Combine with UAV (drone) data for a full ground and air solution
  • Analyse pointcloud data for structural assessment such as wall or beam deformation
  • Extract topographical survey data directly from the scan pointcloud
  • Utilise the highly visual data for marketing and promotional material

industrial

  • Plant and factory 3D scanning and modelling
  • Boat modelling
  • Improve factory layout for increased efficiency
  • Design structures and components that will install first time, minimise shut downs
  • Precise component reverse engineering, no component is too big or too complex
  • As-built surveys

3D Laser Scanning Process

3D scanning involves collecting data from multiple 3D laser scanner locations to register the complete scan. The result is a 3D pointcloud which can be coordinated by applying surveyed coordinates to scan targets.

The photographic overlay data is captured at the same time, with an RGB (Red, Green, Blue) value
associated to each cloud point. The pointcloud data can then be imported into CAD/GIS software directly, meshed, or modelled through Recon's specialist software.

From the pointcloud Recon's skilled team can generate outputs such as a 3D DWG right through to a detailed BIM Model. Building information modelling provides intelligent 3D information to architects, engineers and construction professionals.
