A Look Back at Lasers: the Blindingly Bright Years of Scanning [INFOGRAPHIC]

December 15, 2017 Sarah Null

In the past, 3D Laser Scanning was an idea only made possible by our imaginations. The outrageous concept of scanning objects to create point clouds and working in a virtual design environment was once perceived as impossible.

Now, we can use 3D laser scanning to collect data, model, and detail. We even have the power to understand existing conditions and design for new build-out. To further appreciate where we are, it’s important to understand how we got here. Take a look at the infographic below, and see how a powerful set of hardware and software have finally reached that optimal balance between science fiction and reality.

 

There are exciting opportunities for construction pros to easily implement this coming-of-age tech for their business. To learn more, download our free guide: The Evolution of 3D Laser Scanning: Past, Present, and Predictions.
