A large pharmaceutical company installed a new line including an alcohol delivery system. 2D CAD drawings were required and we laser scanned the entire project including pipe work, tanks and valves for complete and accurate as built details.
Plant and CAD drawings become out of date as new machinery, equipment and pipework is added. We have scanned several facilities and delivered the data for our customers to accurately update CAD drawings and databases
3D Laser Scanning is perfect for reverse engineering and design. We have scanned machinery and delivered as built accurate CAD files for patent submission. We have multiple applications where we scanned and delivered 3D Models for guarding design in Solidworks and Autocad.
We have helped customers get the most up to date and accurate models and drawings. It does not matter if your drawings are from 1962 or maybe you don't even have drawings. 3DS Technologies can help.
3DS Technologies can scan just about anything and create a digital reproduction. This boat was scanned and transformed into a native Solidworks model that could be sectioned, scaled, and copied.
A customer was concerned regarding movement of a grain silo. 3D Laser scanning measures 1 million points per second which allows us get an accurate measurement from any two points. We can even scan the same points at different times to measure movement and report deviation.
3D Laser Scanning is quickly becoming the common method for validating the flatness of floors and concrete slabs. A heat map can be generated or points on a grid can be exported to Autocad.
3D Laser Scanning is a great tool for quickly and accurately digitizing topography. Ground extraction can be done quickly removing trees and vegetation. Volumes and cubatures can be calculated quickly from this.
By scanning before and after excavations, precise volumes can be quickly calculated.
3DS Technologies has reverse engineered machinery, equipment and even trees to be used for a children's playground. These meshes can in turn be used for 3D printing.
3D Laser Scanning can quickly verify construction is proceeding to plan. Scanning can save thousands of dollars and large amounts of time by identifying mistakes and eliminating rework. Utilizing 3D laser scanning to capture actual site conditions on a continuous basis creates a series of 3D verified pictures, snapshots in time that can be compared and contrasted against the design model. Any irregularities can be spotted, assessed and corrective action taken before costly rework is required.
3DS Technologies was called last minute to perform a 3D Comparison for a large automotive manufacturer looking to use a new jig. Scanning the fixture and the 4 samples, we were able to verify the design of the fixture.
An Industrial contractor needed to be able to design a new system that would meet the needs of the customer. 3DS Technologies scanned and provided an AutoCAD 3D As-built for the designer to work from. This eliminated site visits and potential errors caused by traditional measuring methods.
3DS Technologies performed a 3D scan of this old church for engineering studies. The attic area especially proved challenging to assess and measure with traditional methods. 3D scanning was able to capture hard to reach areas safely and efficiently. 3D Laser Scanning even provides the ability to easily visualize both sides of an object at once, in this case, where the rafters were in relation to the exterior.
Some areas are dark and simply difficult to reach. 3D Laser Scanning has a long-range while maintaining accuracy. And it doesn't care about light. The customer can now safely extract all measurements from the comfort of their desk.
3DS Technologies has performed several crane rail surveys to verify CMAA tolerances. We can scan millions of points per second and provide a simple report along the length of the crane rails verifying all 7 CMAA crane rail specs.
3DS Technologies scanned and compared draft tubes to measure erosion and compare design to as-built specs. Tolerances within 3mm overall and 1.2mm per scan were maintained.
3DS Technologies scanned and provided an as-built model for a manufacturer's refurbishment. This helped with the planning and design by eliminating costly errors and saving thousands of dollars.
Some new equipment was being designed and added to a customer's rock crushers. By scanning and providing a 3D Model, the customer was able to confidently design the new equipment without costly site visits to this remote location.
3DS Technologies prides itself on quality. Our scans can be used as-is to gather measurements or share site walkthroughs with project stakeholders. Similar to Google Earth but for plants.
Quickly capture site layout conditions for planning, training, or design.
A customer needed to quickly confirm site layout and measurements for a large renovation project. 3DS Technologies sent 1 team to complete over 300 scans in one day. 122 rooms and offices could then be measured as needed at any time.
3D Scanning is the easiest way to trace pipework by having as-built modelling completed. The model can be used to create ISO drawings, for planning new installations or deciding how to remove old installations. With a smart model, you can identify pipe specs withing the model. Eventually, P&IDS and ISO's will be eliminated and the standard will be smart models that anyone with a computer can work with.
3D Laser Scanning can capture every detail in large or small quantities. 3DS can complete spaces up to 100 00- sq. ft. per day.
Sharing with project stakeholders has never been easier. By having an accurate, as-built digital twin of your facility, every one is always on the same page.
3DS has certified UAV Pilots and can incorporate drone data to get those large or hard to reach areas.
This home from the 1800s is historically significant. We scanned and provided a 3D Revit model allowing the porch to be dismantled and rebuilt with exact details at a later date.
Our team captured 60 000 sq. feet in one day and we delivered a detailed and accurate 2D site plan with specified details. Need more details? No need to return to the site, we capture every detail and have a digital twin.
We are able to measure objects with mm accuracy quickly. Scanners like the Leica P50, allow us to set up safely out of harm's way and measure 1 million points per second with mm accuracy at a range of 1000m.
