3D Laser Scanning Services

 

LIDAR: 3D scans using virtual walkthroughs

* uses lasers to create points between the laser and an object, structure, or landscape

* captures point cloud models

Offering a variety of laser scanning services:

From our scanners, we gather images and use Trimble Realworks Software to process and manage data sets, cross-sections, and point clouds.

LOD (CAD Levels of Detail) - 

* Level 1: Presents overall shapes, used for general studies of larger projects

* Level 2: Most popular, detailed and cost-effective

* Level 3: Lots of details on a model, for sensitive designing works and models used for visualizations
