After the 3D laser scanning is completed and the point data data obtained, many clients would require creation of a 3D Model based on the point-cloud data. This is made possible due to the accuracy and scope of the 3D Laser Scanner, which outputs the point cloud seamlessly into CAD programmes such as 3ds Max and Autodesk Revit, along with other 3D Modeling Programmes.
The 3D Model is then manually created by our modellers, and as a result, an accurate, precise and comprehensive as-built 3D model of the scanned object or area can be produced, true to the real life dimensions, thanks to 3D Laser Scanning. For instance, in the past, contractors used to discover that the the piping positions on the drawings are not exact to the real site, which caused problems during construction or retrofitting works. Laser Scanning, complemented with 3D modeling, solves this problem, preventing rework and additional downtime.
The flexibility and dynamism of 3D models creates many possibilities, one of which is the extraction of 2D drawings from it. Sectional slices, or plan-view of 3D models can be done at any elevation or direction, to provide the relevant professionals the required viewpoints. With our experienced modellers, we at Aries Geomatics are adept in creating 3D models of various scales, including Pharmaceutical Plants, Facilities, Office Spaces, and many more.
