Laser Scanning: A "Fit for Purpose" Approach

Summit Engineering and Design, LLC takes 3D Laser Scanning to the next level. See the following videos for examples of how we use 3D laser scanning and our distinctive software to:

Faro Focus3D Laser Scanning for MEP Seismic Upgrades

In this video, we look at the process required to assess the MEP system and introduce how 3D laser scanning is used to perform this task in a more manageable and cost effective manner with the added benefit of providing as-built information of the owner's facility.

3D Laser Scan of a dmaged Gulfstream G4

3D Laser Scan of a dmaged Gulfstream G4

This example demonstrates the use of isolated scan data to view different parts of the plane more easily by selectively hiding other parts. Using this process on the wing elements made it possible to virtually break the wing down to its minimum shipping dimensions and confirm it could be transported in the available cargo plane.

3D Laser Scan Ferry Terminal using FARO Focus3D

Laser scan data of ferry dock facility showing isolated pointcloud data. We can fly through and inspect the full data or, using Summit's proprietary techniques, limit the view to items of interest.
