Why 3d laser scanning?
To measure buildings of any type and size precisely, quickly, deformation-true and comprehensively, including the possibility of photo documentation (panoramic photos). The interior as well as the exterior areas can be scanned precisely without loss of accuracy.

Advantage over conventional surveying: More objects relevant to planning can be recorded and documented in a much shorter time. Also, additional data can be generated out at a later time, without further field service. The burden on the business or tenant is reduced many times over.

What scanning systems are available?
There are stationary and dynamic laserscan systems.

Stationary: A building (mostly facade and roof areas, crawlspaces, staircases, etc.) is recorded three-dimensionally in a stationary manner (scanner on tripod). This method enables fast, easy and accurate measurement of complex objects and buildings. Applications in areas where dynamic acquisition is not possible. Daily output up to 2,000 sqm possible.

Dynamic: Buildings (mostly interior areas) captured dynamically (mobile scanner) in three dimensions. This method enables fast, simple and accurate measurement of complex objects and buildings from motion, without loss of accuracy. Daily output up to 50,000 sqm.

How much time is needed to capture a building?
This depends on the type of building and the current condition of the building.

Is the building gutted and empty? Is it a relatively simple building such as a hall or is it more complex with different levels and staircases? Are there crawl spaces? Do appointments even have to be made with tenants? Does the operation have to be taken into consideration and can the recording only be done at certain times?

The less tuning required, the faster it can be captured. A few days, depending on the object size.

What is needed up front to make the project happen?
In advance, information such as images and plans are needed to get an overview of the object. The more you have the better. If nothing is available, then a site inspection is necessary, gladly combined with a consultation. This is followed by a quotation and scheduling.
What happens to the collected data?
After the data is collected, it is processed. The processing of the measurement data, i.e. a homogeneous point cloud, is carried out with the manufacturer-dependent software products (Trimble, Faro, Leica, NavVis, ZF).
We work with the software XY. Can we continue to work with the data obtained?
We process your data in your desired “in-house software”. This means that we work independently of manufacturers and are therefore familiar with all common software systems. Whether Revit, Allplan, Archicad, Autocad, Rhino, Vektorworks, Autocad, Microstation/Tricad and much more
How accurate is a point cloud?
This is highly dependent on the internal processes of the respective service provider. Other criteria are object characteristics, size, material (glass facades), accessibility and the right choice of sensors (3d scanner, total station, level, possibly GPS receiver). As a rule, our precision moves 1-3 cm to 150 m.
How can a point cloud be further processed?
For modeling purposes in a CAD software e.g. Revit, point clouds should be reduced or slimmed down beforehand. With smaller amounts of data, Hanling becomes smoother and faster.
What does modeling mean?
Modeling according to point clouds works similarly to “paint by numbers” in the past.
