3D LASER SCANNING FOR ARCHITECTS AND DESIGNERSHow Does 3D Laser Scanning help architects, designers and contractors? Red Laser Scanning takes a close look.
The world of architecture and design is always changing. Thankfully, a number of huge technological strides are making things easier than ever before for many designers and architects! A leading technology is, of course, 3D laser scanning. A laser scanning survey doesn’t just help to make things clearer for end users and project managers but can also help to simplify the whole design process.
Design experts and architects use 3D laser scanning to better conceptualise their first designs and plans. It’s become a huge asset to the home design industry because of its focus on accuracy and error avoidance. Laser scanning surveys are popular with architects because they can completely remove risks of error. Laser scanning can even help to lower costs because there will be zero need to redo areas of a project due to error.
Red Laser Scanning’s experienced team of scan data experts are here to show you how much of a difference laser scanning surveys can make to your own architectural planning. Let’s take a closer look.
Bringing 3D Laser Scanning into Architectural Design
It’s safe to say that there is enormous potential with 3D laser scanning and surveys. There are so many wide-ranging benefits, that we have actually discussed a few in previous blog posts! However, in this guide, we are focusing on individual designers and architects.
Consider the accuracy factor. With precision through laser scanning surveys, you get to save incredible time and money in the long run. There’s absolutely no need for you to keep going back to adjust.
What’s more, architects benefit from smoother, more streamlined 3D models. They have even BIM workflows, which means there is less hassle pooling data together. This makes for smoother, more confident project planning. You can also export this data via several different programs, such as Revit and AutoCAD. It’s amazingly flexible!
Architectural Development Benefits
Let’s also consider the benefits of laser scanning surveys during the development process. As an architect, you are likely to notice more and more details popping up along the way. Through scanning and via Point Cloud, you can now take stock of new data and plan for it with ease.
This means, even if any details pop up which are relatively trivial, you can clearly plan for them with dedicated drawings. Even better is the fact that you won’t need to be a specialist architect to handle some of the finer points.
You’ll also be able to show your clients a variety of renders and virtual flythroughs during development. This means they’ll have greater confidence in what you’re doing and can see the final product before you even start the physical labour. All in all, 3D laser scanning helps to make design and architecture more palatable for everyone involved.
