Laser Scans in Plant Design Projects

CADMATIC Laser Scan Modeller is an integrated solution for seamless use of data from laser scanners in 3D models and construction data.

Key benefits

  • Reduce time for surveys, operational downtime at the client’s facility, and the need for field trips in potentially hazardous environments
  • Fewer unknowns and assumptions regarding existing constructions, reduction in re-work due to instant availability of accurate dimensions and spatial geometries
  • Lack of as-built electronic documentation available from the owner/operator is no longer a need for concern
  • Quickly estimate the scope of required changes,with fewer unknowns and assumptions regardingexisting constructions

How it works

CADMATIC Laser Scan Modeller is an integrated solution for seamless use of data from laser scanners in 3D models and construction data. It boosts the use of laser scanning technologies in design projects. You can utilize point clouds directly in the 3D design tool with the use of familiar design tools.

Benefit from viewing and examining an existing plant layout when sketching a new layout, use point clouds as references in measuring and fitting, while designing new items in detail or re-modelling existing items. While re-modelling, you can directly use settings, the library and components of other CADMATIC modules for the correct attributes and materials.


Features

Point cloud import

Point cloud data can be imported from standard point cloud file formats. If original data file contains multiple scans, each scan is imported as a separate point cloud. Point clouds are stored in native CADMATIC point cloud format which ensures they are handled as effectively as possible,

Easy generation

No restrictions on laser scanning equipment. Generates a scanner map that shows the scanning positions in the 3D model. Generates a rotating, zoomable bubble view of each scanning position. 

Flexible point cloud handling

Point clouds can be rescaled, rotated and positioned in the project area as needed. Users can optimize usability by selecting where and when to show point cloud data and crop point clouds to show only certain parts.
