To digitize a building, process plant or object to record the actual condition.
Using the FARO Laser Scanner LS, a point cloud of the entire environment can be generated. This documents the structure allowing the user to take measurements and view the as built region in a virtual world. If necessary the point cloud data can be surfaced to generate a CAD model which can be used for comparison or reconstruction. The FARO ScanArm can be used in a similar was to document smaller objects up to approx. 3m in size.
The data capture is far faster using laser scanning technology compared to conventional documentation techniques. Also working with the actual data captured from the environment allows planners to incorporate deviations from original design plans in their rework of facilities, reducing the risk of clashes occurring during the installation of new features. This can significantly reduce project turnaround time leading to huge savings.
