Laser scanning as a process of capturing actual state (and built) has become an indispensable part of the industry. The speed with which it is possible to pipe bridge or production hall with facilities to target and create a CAD model is unmatched by other conventional methods of measurement.
3D laser scanning of buildings, churches, castles has an advantage over the conventional measurement techniques that the laser scanner is capable of focusing complex object, which means that the scanner is able to do roughly 900,000 measurements per second. The density of acquired data and speed of collection guarantee that the processed data will be exact representation of reality.
Laser scanning of oversized objects is done quite often. These are projects where it is necessary to reconstruct production facilities, install new large technological units in existing facilities where there may be situations of collision (collision detection), schedule exact connections to technological units (the exact position of the flange in the space) or check the accuracy of formations prior to installation. Interventions or replacement of important components can be simulated before real intervention. An accurate 3D CAD model is necessary to obtain relevant data.
