Recon Limited has the ability to create convenient, detailed 3D models from a range of data capture platforms. Whether small scale, detailed objects, or whole landscapes, Recon can capture and generate 3D BIM construction models, compatible in Revit and any common CAD or design programme. The term '3D Model' represents anything from colourised pointclouds through to solid 3D mesh representations of the geometry.
Below you can see some example models we've created for various clients and projects.
From 3D pointcloud data capture via UAV LiDAR, coordinated via PPK positioning, a detailed and accurate 3D model of a pylon and transmission lines was extracted. The model can be used for planning and analysis of transmission line clearance from vegetation and ground. Using the raw LiDAR data it's also possible to model vegetation growth and predict hazards to enable efficient and coordinated vegetation control.
The image shows a colourised, 3D mesh of a Toyota van, a great example of 3D scanning vehicles. The scan pointcloud is accurate to 1mm and will be used to design a complete internal fitout of the van.
From 3D scan data Recon was able to model an accurate representation of the boat hull mould, enabling future replica hulls to be constructed to the highest precision. The user can then obtain cross-sections from the model on any axis at chosen intervals.
Using a combination of scanning tools Recon can scan the entire room and model down to the most complex of detail within it, in this case the internal components of a switch cabinet.
Ahead of major redevelopment work Recon was engaged to provide a topographic survey and 3D BIM model (Revit model) of a multi-level mall, supermarket and office space. The scanning was completed over a week and the modelling a few weeks after that. Recon's surveyors provide vital QA assistance during the scanning and post-processing, critical in providing a survey-accurate model of this scale and complexity.
Casino 3D model, 3D scanned and modelled for architectural design purposes. The casino dimensions were obtained via a high definition 3D scanner, modelled and supplied to the architects as a 3D DWG.
Recon utilises sophisticated techniques to model complex spaces and plant. This example of a substation was part of a substantial modification project and required survey-accurate modelling of all spaces, plant and cabling across two levels. The project was completed in less than four weeks via 3D laser scanning and total station surveying and gave the engineering team and stakeholders the confidence to make informed, cost-saving decisions.
Located in Auckland City, the Pah Homestead is a heritage listed building that has been recently renovated. This Reality Model was derived photogrammetrically and provides a visual record that can be easily shared and explored for decades to come.
