3D Laser Scanning of House by Terrain Surveys

How 3D laser scanning supports the building design process

  3D laser scanning surveys have become an indispensable tool for use in building construction. This method of measurement allows designers and project managers to rapidly acquire building data in three dimensions reliably and with low processing time. 3D laser scanning digitally captures the shape of physical objects using laser to accurately capture position of millions of points on the surface of an object. This produces a ‘pointcloud’ showing the…
