Benefits of Laser Scanning
Millions of real-world data points
A single laser scan captures up to a million 3D data points per second, providing incredibly rich detail of every aspect of your project.
Answer unanticipated questions
How many times have you left the job site, only to discover you needed a few more measurements? A 3D scan will capture that extra data, eliminating the need to return to the project to answer unanticipated questions.
Minimize shut-down times
Best results are normally obtained during times of minimal activity. However, scanning is quick, safe, and non-intrusive — eliminating or minimizing operational shut downs and client inconvenience.
Individual measurements acquired by tapes or hand held “distos” are subject to numerous errors. Laser scanning is the most accurate form of measurement available, delivering accuracy of a few millimeters or less.
Reduce change orders and waste
The cost of a scan pales in comparison to the cost of change orders and construction delays. Incorporating a laser scan into the design of your project assures accurate and complete information, avoiding costly headaches and wasted material during the construction phase.
Acquiring hand measurements by conventional methods can be dangerous. 3D scanning can obtain measurements in hazerdous locations while keeping workers out of harms way.
Having a model helped me to visualize a simple revision to the design that ended up saving a full 10 months out of the construction schedule. I am positive that I simply would have not noticed this potential if it weren’t for having the accurate scanned information at my disposal. The contractors see the value through our day to day planning with the model, and visualizing the work before it happens. The owner is recognizing the cost savings of shaving 10 months off of the project schedule and has also become an advocate of 3D scanning.Paul SchmidtSenior Project Manager, Messer Construction

With your industry leading technology and experience, I received my model under budget and quicker than than going to the site for takeoffs and creating the Revit model in-house. We saved two full-time modelers a minimum of 4 to 5 weeks creating the existing building structure and MEP systems. With your team’s professionalism at the job site, the owner was pleased to see the non-interruption to the facility’s day to day operations.Matthew StuverBIM Manager, Dynamix Engineering
Nothing is ever built EXACTLY as planned. Laser scanning gives you real-world information that helps you make informed decisions about your project. Ongoing laser scanning helps you confirm details as your project moves forward, before mistakes become costly.
Preserve historic building details. Laser scanning provides a much higher level of detail than hand measuring, allowing you to capture, preserve and reproduce intricate building details.
Truescan3D also specializes in laser scanning for a variety of other industries including sport and entertainment venues, roadway and bridge projects, and many more specialized applications.
