Following three years of subcontracting and renting laser scanning tools, ITAC recently invested in the scanning hardware and software required to develop 3-D CAD models in-house. We, and our customers, find these laser scans and resulting models to be very powerful engineering and design tools. Both engineering time and costs are reduced, while accuracy, details, and safety are increased. Our customers find the tool very useful in evaluating new designs, as the new equipment and construction features are modeled in their existing facilities in three dimensions.


Summarizing laser scanning and modeling benefits:

  • Capture accurate 3-dimensional physical measurements of virtually any object/system to +/- 1/8 inch; reduces number of site visits and measuring time
  • Reduces need for scaffolding, ladders, and designers to work at elevated heights
  • Equipment placement/re-placement, tie-ins, lift plans, and real-estate scenarios are modeled and dimensioned for owner review
  • Multiple users have access to model; real time inter-discipline and QA/QC checks
  • Reduces clashes and construction change orders
  • Customers find software interface easy to use; can "fly" through the model to foresee installation features
