VM Systems now offers in-house 3D laser scanning. We have recently purchased the Trimble TX5 Laser Scanner along with Trimble RealWorks point cloud modeling software to acquire existing field conditions. This high definition scan incorporates a 70 megapixel color camera to enhance the scan into a “life-like” computer model.
Our BIM team can capture as-is conditions for use on virtual design and construction projects. It can also be used to capture accurate as-built documentation of a facility for redesign and revamp projects or for updating existing plant documentation in 3D.
Once this data is collected it can be utilized in many ways. Scan explorer allows us to publish the data in a format that is accessible to any computer running Windows Internet Explorer.
A full color HD Picture can be made available with the ability to collect any point-to-point measurement desired. It can also be brought into Navisworks for coordination or into SketchUp via plug-in for design.
