Knowing how our data will be applied is key to identifying the right time to scan. From checking progress against design to creating existing condition models, it is critical to understand project lifecycle, environment and plans.
The building industry is just in the beginning phases of adopting laser scanning as an integral part of the BIM design process. The first step is understanding how and where laser scanning fits into design and construction process and the value of ROI.
Robotic Imaging has worked on hundreds of construction sites nationwide and holds all the necessary insurance to perform the job safely and under compliance.
- Aerial and Interior Construction Monitoring: Photo, Video, 360, Point Clouds, 3D Maps & Models
- Point Cloud Conversions for CAD, REVIT, Infraworks, Navisworks (RCS, RCP): LiDAR is a data set composed of 4D points. Point Clouds act as basis or background for drawings or locational itemization of critical infrastructure.
- As-Built BIM/Revit files (LOD 100-300 Revit Models): We help capture point clouds using BIM, photogrammetry and surveying practices. Every file we create can be customized to your CAD workflow.
- 3D Visual Walkthroughs: Pre-Dry wall or Pre-Slab
We evaluate projects based on speed, range, environment and accuracy.
For example, 1 million points per second would be excessive for simple 2D as-builts, but necessary for complex MEP with 1/4 inch lines. Tuning our scanning tool kit by project is essential for data compression and usability. If we are scanning a structure 100 feet tall, we will use lifts or our long-range scanners that can capture site be applied to site survey control.
