Traceable 3D® Target-based
In the last few decades, 3D reality capture has become the preferred method of capturing the as-built condition of any physical asset. Millions of bits of data are converted into 3D point clouds, creating an accurate virtual representation of what was scanned.
But even a modest project can generate hundreds, perhaps thousands of scans, each one requiring point cloud registration. Not only must scans be taken, registered and aligned the first time, but throughout an asset’s lifecycle. It’s in exactly these situations — repeat scanning and repeat alignment — where target-less or cloud-to-cloud registration can run into challenges.
Traceable 3D de-silos data and brings it into a single compatible coordinate system through target-based scanning with specialized mounted targets. It provides a fixed, but re-locatable, anchor point, enabling repeatable scan alignment and ensuring that even the most minute changes in a physical asset are captured.
