Laser scanning, 3D modeling, and reverse engineering are used to capture the existing condition of an environment or object, compare the “as-built” or “as-is” state of an object to the “as-designed” CAD model, maintain an up-to-date record of the facility and available resources, or support downstream modeling, visualization and simulation tasks. Geocent offers laser scanning, modeling and reverse engineering services that support facility management (e.g. Building Information Modeling), configuration management, construction planning, and quality verification, marketing efforts, and documentation of catastrophic damage. The utilization of scanning and modeling has shown too.
- Save construction/maintenance time and improve quality,
- Identify issues early in the design and planning cycle,
- Facilitate communication of design or construction issues,
- Address safety issues involved in the collection required information since laser scanners are non-contact tools and can capture data at long ranges, and
- Document stages of construction or renovation for future analysis.
