Industries that Benefit from 3d Laser Scanning

You’d be hard pressed to find an industry that can’t reap the benefits of 3D laser scanning technology. From real estate and construction to aviation and archeological preservation, 3D laser scanning is bringing efficiency and specialization to industries all over the globe ultimately saving companies money and buying them time. 


General contractors, structural engineers, museum curators and fabricators are a few of the professionals who value the workflow benefits of scanning technology. Scanning technology means fewer mistakes, more efficient communication and accurate, timely deliverables. 

3D Laser Scanning is the first step in a long list of applications that include:

  • IoT Devices (laser scan ⇨ model ⇨ sensor connectors)

  • Augmented Reality experiences

  • Virtual Reality experiences

  • BIM Coordination / Structural Modeling

  • As-builts (imaging of project upon completion)

  • Dimension Verification Data 

  • 360° Photos 

  • Digital Map / Real World Alignment 

  • Floor Flatness / Levelness Scans 

  • Point Clouds (data points representing a 3D space or object)

  • Digital Twin rendering

    Our expert technicians make it easy to create an immersive 3D digital twin of your building. Whether a property is being newly developed or you’re considering making changes, a precise 3D footprint of the property will prove useful. It can be used to make certain changes before any costly work is actually done to the property. Owning a digital twin of your building will save you both time and money.


    Airplanes and vessels are uniquely more challenging to measure than buildings with 90 degree angles. 3D scanning technology has allowed the measuring of curved surfaces to be achieved in seconds. This option of digitally capturing unique surfaces with precise data, has proven to be a valuable addition to the aviation and aerospace industry. The automation of these scans opens up time to complete numerous projects within the scope of work. 


    3D scanning continues to be utilized to develop imaging for some of the most iconic landmarks and historic buildings throughout the world. The ability to capture three dimensional, digitally accurate "twins" without any physical disturbance of heritage sites has enabled the preservation of historical artifacts and structures for studies or replications. opened the door for numerous discoveries and a deeper understanding of how these incredible monuments came into being.


    For an industry like forensics, the most beneficial aspect of modern 3D laser scanning is the portability of devices that allow for detailed scans of crime scenes. The scanners can be utilized for exterior or interior, day or night, and the results can even can be used in court hearings as evidence.

Benefits of owning a 

3d laser scan of your building

Benefit #1 - Increase Efficiency 

Owning a 3D laser scan means that you will reduce the time your team spends manually capturing project data, allowing your team to prioritize their workflow and spend more time on pressing project deliverables.

Benefit #2 - Reduce Risk 

Many workplace environments can pose risk, injury or illness to your team. Access to a 3D laser scan allows survey and measurement practices to be performed remotely keeping your business and your employees safe while reducing the demand for costly health and safety measures.

Benefit #3 - Save Time and Money 

With a 3D laser scan your business can maintain a competitive edge in any rapidly expanding industry, from construction and architecture to real estate and hospitality. 

The ability to take non-contact, remote measurements is especially vital for time-sensitive projects. Your team will have more flexibility to spend time with clients, expanding business prospects and completing deliverables.

Benefit #4 - Enhance Precision 

3D laser scanners capture data with an unparalleled display of precision in a short period of time. Long gone are the days of measuring by hand which can often result in errors and cost your team time.
