3D Laser Scanning, Laser Scanners, Lidar Scanning & Point Cloud Scanning

3D Laser scanning

Laser scanning of existing plant to capture all members and dimensions

Advances in technology are revolutionising 3d laser scanning, but no matter how many gadgets you use, you still need expert knowledge and know how to capture and interpret critical information.

You can always hire a surveyor with to do point cloud scanning and give them a brief, but at FIELD, all our lidar scanning and surveying is carried out by the people who are going to use the information. This means they get input from both seeing the real thing and the scan which means better interpretation of the laser scanning and better quality modelling.

Laser Scanners

Jon using Wild Heerbrug N3 Level

One of the tricks with working on large mobile plants is that survey reference needs to be made to the machine’s axis of movement and not true levels. These jobs call for old school optical survey using instruments like the Wild Heerbrugg N3 Optical level. We’ve got that covered too.
