POINT CLOUD SURVEY

SCAN TO POINT CLOUD SEVICES IN LONDON

RECEIVE POINT CLOUD DATA AND START WORKING ON YOUR PROJECT

We conduct 3D laser scanning surveys of sites of all shapes and sizes across London. We are able to deliver point cloud data which can be then converted to 3D BIM models and 2D drawings. Full measured building surveys using point cloud data are infinitely more accurate, and therefore more dependable across all that you do.

HOW IT WORKS

  • We conduct a full 3D point cloud survey of the building
  • We process and register surveyed scans using specialised 3d laser scanning software to create a single point cloud file, which we will then send on to you
  • You can then open the point cloud data using Autodesk Recap or other relevant software to visualise the area and take any required measurements
  • You can also import point cloud into BIM/CAD software and use it as a background reference to create accurate 2D drawings and 3D models

WHY SCAN TO POINT CLOUD LASER SCANNING?

ACCURATE

Scan to point cloud allows us to create accurate 2D drawings, elevations, sections and 3D models using point cloud as a background reference

VIRTUAL

Receive virtual 360-degree tours of a laser-scanned site using the point cloud allowing extraction of measurements of any objects

NO ERRORS

Elimination of human error in any captured measurements

PRECISE

All objects are captured, allowing to create 2D drawings & 3D models to the smallest details

WE LOOK FORWARD TO HELPING YOU WITH 3D LASER SCANNING SURVEY SERVICES LONDON AND BEYOND.

PROCESS OF 3D POINT CLOUD SURVEY EXPLAINED

1

SITE LASER SCANNING SURVEY

Each of our London laser scanning projects starts with a site visit to undertake a measured building survey using 3D laser scanning equipment. From each location where a 3D scanner operates, it captures millions of 3D points in x, y and z coordinates, in 360 degrees of surface and objects it can see on its way.

3D laser scanning equipment only records everything that is in its visibility, therefore, scans are taken from multiple locations in order to capture data from all sides of the targeted area.

2

FILES EXTRACTION

Once a 3D laser survey has been completed, all scans are imported into specialised software, where scans are processed, registered and combined together. The outcome is a point cloud, which is a set of millions of 3D laser points which are combined together in x, y and z axes and represent accurate shapes and forms of real buildings and objects in 3D.

3

SOFTWARE

Point clouds are then imported into software like Autodesk Recap, mainly for visualisation purposes such as taking any measurements from a point cloud, virtual tours of scanned data, 360 imagery views and many more. It is a crucial element across all measured building survey services.

These tools are particularly useful to designers and architects as they allow them to eliminate any need for further site visits. At the same time, the point cloud can be imported to CAD or BIM software and be used as a background reference to create accurate and detailed measured building survey drawings, 2D drawings, sections, elevations and 3D models.

DELIVERY AND REASSURANCE

Clients using a point cloud can be assured that plans and 3D models will represent the reality due to the high accuracy of the 3D laser scanning equipment. The 3D laser scanning equipment used by our London team at Red Laser Scanning is capable of taking 3D laser measurements with a range of up to 130 metres and produce measured building survey drawings and 3D models an accuracy level of +- 2mm.
