The Architectural Applications of 3D Laser Scanning: Learn what BLK2GO + BLK360 can do for you


In the construction industry, measurement is the core step of any project. 3D Laser Scanning makes it easy to measure and document across all industries.

With tools like Leica Geosystems’, BLK2GO, and BLK360, we can now execute during the design, construction, and maintenance cycles with higher quality. 

Here's a breakdown of the architectural applications of 3D laser scanning and a look at some of the best scanning tools we use. 

Point Cloud to BIM - Implementing 3D Laser Scanning creates a smooth BIM workflow, from the acquisition of data to a polished 3D Architectural Model. 

Remodel Projects - From an initial massing study to a refined rendering of the site, Laser Scanning can aid in creating any type of project. 

Design Phase - A registered point cloud contains data needed to save time and address new problems, eliminating repeat trips back to the site. 

Construction Phase - Monitor construction progress and verify the accuracy of work; laser scanning provides comprehensive documentation of the site.
