3D Laser Scanning
Looking for 3D laser scanning services, SIF Engineering would be the best place for you. We provide impeccable scanning services in automotive, electrical, architecture and mechanical and mining industry. We decrease your project or manufacturing cost and provide impeccable security to workers. Our Expert team here provide customer-centric services which will give you an upper hand concerning your immediate competitors.
During the initial step our experts will prepare the surface, this is done so that lasers can be prevented from passing through or reflecting from the surface of the object.
Our experts then arrange proper scan settings which provide perfect image, for this they determine total angles which are required to get proper scan data.
Once the settings are made then we start to scan the surface of the object and millions of data points are generally collected. Our experts then capture every viewing angle, this causes every scan get automatically align as the 3 dimensional models unravels.
Our experts then refine as well as merger the 3 dimensional data which has been scanned; this process includes various features viz. trimming, fusion, alignment and polishing.
We offer 3D laser Scanning services that can transform the planning, engineering and construction of large-scale projects through data, visualization and business intelligence.
Scanning & Scan-to-BIM:
We specialize in serving our clients with the latest 3D laser scanning technology with high accurate proximity data where field measurements or as-builts will be a necessity. 3D laser scanning of large, complex as-built structures helps AEC professionals accelerate the documentation process of existing conditions while improving accuracy and cutting costs. It helps to capture complete as-built field construction data without causing disruption.
We offer 3D Laser scan onsite through which high definition scans can be delivered for immediate Engineering analysis. The 3D scans deliver high definition 360-degree by 320-degree photo-realistic panoramic scans to a 3D CAD surface model. The 3D digital capture gathers large amount of field information in short period. The data from point cloud/3D scan can be used to produce engineering documents without clashes and interferences
3D Scanning services start by bringing our qualified technicians out to your site for digital survey, scanning and data collection.
First, we set up our digital survey total stations to validate scanner positions for each area that needs to be captured. These surveys dimensional control methodologies offer a higher standard of precision, ensuring that the resulting point cloud modeling is accurate within 2mm to 5mm.
Secondly, laser scanning devices take 360-degree laser measures of reflected surface points that are collected / measures millions of points per second. Once all the scans are collected, the data is taken in-house.
Thirdly by using the state-of-the-art processing software where all the individual scans are registered and connected together to form your unique point cloud model which suits as an input into BIM applications
3D scanned data can be integrated with other information in CAD, GIS & Web platforms where it can be used by engineers to make informed real time decisions. When integrated with BIM, the point cloud model allows you to quickly and accurately analyze and access as-is project conditions prior to commencing the design process. The 3D point clouds will be converted into a comprehensive Building Information Model in native formats.
Advantages of 3D Laser Scanning over conventional method:
- Proven lower cost as-built and topographic surveys, due to faster data collection & shorter project life cycle times.
- More accurate, complete as-built for retrofits and design, enabling offshore fabrication & less construction rework caused by Inteferences and fit-up problems
- Reduced facility downtime, as a result of the unobstructed scanning procedure.
- Scan data can be delivered via a complimentary viewer, as 2D or 3D CAD or in a variety of laser scan formats that can be manipulated by the client.
- Time spent for data capture is upto 10 times faster, then construction / installation stop of shorter duration.
- We can be sure that all the necessary information have been collected, allowing us to avoid the risk of having to return to the site to integrate with new measures.
- Buildings – Architecture, Structure, MEP and its Utilities Infrastructure
- Urban Planning
- Highways & Transportation Infrastructure
- Off-shore – Oil rigs & Vessels
- Industrial Applications – Power Stations / Power Plants
Note: Animated walk-throughs will be created from the point cloud files.
Smart Laser – Quick Measurement:
For quick measurement of Building façade, building external glass / wall area, building height and width, distance between two points, building footprint and GPS/GNSS location; a smart laser measurement solution is available for all types of industries and professional use, and brings new functionality to your smartphone or tablet by turning it into a powerful measurement solution.
Professionals can save valuable time and money, measure from a safe distance, and access hard to reach areas all by taking a photo. Smart laser device allows you to measure and locate an object simply by taking a photo with your smartphone or tablet. It works with both Apple iOS and Google Android smartphones and tablets.
It also supports design, architecture, engineering, construction, and GIS software, including Collector for ArcGIS, Survey123 for ArcGIS, AutoCAD, Revit, ARCHICAD, Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw, and Flexi. The accuracy of Smart laser rangefinder is ± 5cm (2in); the accuracy of Photo Measurements is ± 1%, and the accuracy of Point-to-Point Measurements is ± 3%.
