Most of our readers will agree, virtual design and construction (VDC) is revolutionizing construction practices. Add laser scanning to your toolbox and you have a job site game changer. This post discusss how you can solve project’s challenges by utilizing laser scanning on the job site.
What is laser scanning? Laser scanning is controlled deflection of laser beams in an existing space. It captures almost every visible component of a space - every wall, every door, every window, and every nook and cranny is measured in a space. Whatever you can see, the scanner discovers it, measures it, and transfers the information into a virtual model with precision. The information provides a reliable foundation for modeling and can serve as an as-built model for an active or completed project.
