Error - something went wrong!
When you’re working with complex work zones, precise operations, and painstaking procedures, 3D laser scanning is your most cost effective and efficient solution to streamline the collection of accurate measurement data on complicated construction and design projects. When analyzing the current conditions of your site, BIM technologies like 3D scanning tools can instantly and accurately collect comprehensive measurement data for construction jobsite measurement and pre-construction processes.
But, with innovative 3D laser site scanning technologies, and other similar technologies, come a lot of questions. We’re working through some of the biggest misconceptions about scanning technology and functionality, so you can spend less time asking questions - and more time implementing new 3D capture solutions, understanding the existing site conditions, and designing for your next contract build-out.
