Innovation in Building
Laser scanning enhances the design process, speeds data collection, eliminates data-collection errors, and reduces the environmental impact of
capturing the shapes of objects, buildings, and landscapes. 3D Scan World has capitalized on this new alternative to traditional data collection by
forming a joint venture called Yes We (S)can, which offers services ranging from building sections to deviation analysis to presentations.
Point clouds are virtual images that are often difficult to grasp for the non-engineer. Using Bentley Pointools, the Spohla, Germany-based team
is able to visualize quality point clouds quickly. With the scanned data and resulting visualization, the team helps clients experience objects and
buildings that would otherwise be inaccessible.
When Polish National Heritage set out to restore the external facade of the Uniejów Castle in Poland, 3Deling was chosen to create accurate
orthoplans of the facades for the planning stage of the PLN 1 million project. The primary challenge of implementing a new cost-effective
work flow for creating images was in developing a method for creating the orthoimages from the point clouds while meeting client requirements.
To create orthoimages from the previously collected colored point-cloud data, the team used Bentley Pointools to generate metric images that
could be assembled into high-resolution orthoimages. The team spent a day on site collecting the data; processed it using Bentley Descartes,
Bentley Pointools, and MicroStation; and provided the point cloud, CAD drawings, and orthoimages to the Polish National Heritage, which then
issued it to the builders.
