3D Laser Scanning

With 3D Laser Scanning, surveying in Capital Surveys entered a new phase of massive, highly accurate and unprecedented level of details data acquisition. 3D laser scanning is a way to capture a physical object’s exact size and shape into the computer world as a digital 3-dimensional representation. The scan produces millions of measurement points called “coordinates.” Together the points create the raw data in the form of “point clouds.” Each coordinate in a point cloud contains an x, y, and z value, which are also known as (Northing (y), Easting (x), and Elevation (z)).

The benefits of 3D Laser Scanning: Fast, accurate, reduce costs and change orders, answers unanticipated questions, minimize shut-down times & safety.

Capital Surveys team of in-house engineers, architects and CAD technicians can produce custom deliverables for your project, ranging from point cloud data to 2D drawings and 3D models. Deliverables can be provided at any level of detail in a variety of formats including AutoCAD Plant 3D, Bentley MicroStation, Revit, AutoCAD MEP, or simple AutoCAD solids.
