Industry Trends

In recent years, 3D laser scanning has been successfully introduced into many fields as it offers an accurate, fast, and reliable technique for Capturing As-Built Reality in the construction industry.

As the construction industry gets more competitive and the average construction project's timeline gets compressed, the design and construction professionals have to adopt new technology to construct building and infrastructure faster and cheaper. Today, the Building and Construction firms have started to recognize the benefits of laser scanning as part of the construction and verification process during a typical project lifecycle. 3D Laser scanning is the perfect solution to capture all the needed data here. The common applications for 3D Laser scanning includes as-built documentation, BIM modeling, creating 2D plan, inspection of facade verticality and floor flatness. These documentation tasks, which are time consuming, laborious and not precise with the traditional method, can be done faster and economically with FARO 3D documentation solution.

This webinar will familiarize you with the latest 3D Scanning technology to capture existing conditions and to create the final deliverables for various critical tasks within the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry. These include 2D documentation with floor plans, sections and elevations, inspection of As-built for verticality and floor flatness and 3D documentation. The presentation will also focus on the creation of 3D BIM Models out of laser scans in Autodesk Revit.
