Why use a laser scanner?

The rich, complete data captured with a laser scanner achieves exact information about existing building conditions with the accuracy needed for construction planning.

FSU’s knowledge and expertise using the latest in laser scanner technology provides our clients more accuracy in every dimension and a meticulous view of all building elements.

But how exactly does it work?

It all starts with a state-of-the-art 3D scanner. We set it up and start the laser sweep. Once the device has done its job, it captures everything in the space and produces point clouds. The point clouds are then registered together and oriented to match. FSU’s 3D team has perfected a process to accurately and efficiently match the separate scans taken on site.  Next, to convert the point cloud to a 3D model, FSU has vetted and selected the best software to do so.

The advantage of this technology is that it makes visible the detail of ALL elements found in the space or building, within greater than eighth of an inch accuracy. All site elements are captured and modeled as if you were there. Use the 3D models or 2D drawings for analysis, design, documentation, and quality control.

It makes your life easier.

Using the laser scanner avoids design collisions, confirms accurate construction at each stage, delivers complete as-built drawings for documentation. It eliminates the risk of designing-in erroneous site details. It allows for our clients – project managers, construction and design managers, and even leasing and property managers – to rely on precise representation of their buildings. Access your models remotely; the point cloud capture produces a “Fly-Through” and “Walk-Through” video of the location, even in the darkest and hard-to-evaluate areas. It’s the best way to plan for new construction projects, renovations, and site audits.

Give us a call or email us to let us know when you’d like your 3D model produced by laser scanners.
