3D scanning for manufacturing using the latest LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology saves time, avoids expensive delays or shut-downs, cuts costs, optimizes productivity, and increases efficiency. LiDAR scans provide Darling Geomatics with the data necessary to create tools such as 3D as-builts, digital twins, and other types of maps and models that were unimaginable just a few years ago.
Possibilities Limited Only by Imagination
The benefits of LiDAR are limited only by the imagination of the engineers, builders, designers, and manufacturers who rely on them. The detailed pictures and models created using data from 3D scans have found an ever-increasing number of applications. These include:
- Construction verification
- Clash detection
- Testing designs and running simulations virtually
- Analyzing and optimizing plant productivity
- Tracking efficiency and performance
- Monitoring stockpiles
- Finding variances
- Detecting needed repairs and maintenance before they become major issues
Deliverables in Nearly Any Format
Data is deliverable in virtually any professional software format required: AutoCAD, Bentley, Point Cloud Data, 3D surface meshes, TruViews, Navisworks, Revit, Verity, and others. Even better, the HMI technology has become much more intuitive and accessible, making it easy to include everyone on your team in collaborative projects.
