3D laser scanning emits millions of laser lights and times their return, in order to accurately and precisely calculate their 3D locations, to produce multiple high-speed scans, brought together into one system. It works by capturing the dimensions digitally and also captures the spatial relationships of objects using the reflection of a laser light.

3D laser scanning is quickly becoming the new norm in the AEC industry. Some consider technology to be progressing faster than the industry itself!

With the ability to capture data at one million points per second, with a scan time of only three minutes, adopting 3D laser tech is a bold first step.
