The Scan3D workflow provides a simple and affordable path to add detailed, ground-level point cloud data to other clouds, creating more complete, more accurate, and more useful scans and finished CAD deliverables. With Scan3D, users can capture culverts, drainage, vaults, manholes, structures, crime scenes, etc. with ease, and then accurately position and scale them via GNSS and other survey workflows. Those same workflows make it easy to accurately integrate Scan3D point clouds into other point cloud data of the scene, i.e. from drones or terrestrial laser scanners. An example workflow could begin with a photogrammetry drone flight to capture the majority of a site, processed to a point cloud in Carlson PhotoCapture.
Scan3D is now available for both Windows and iOS tablets and phones. Windows-based Scan3D kits include an individually calibrated Intel® RealSense™ depth camera, directly mountable to Carlson’s RT5 or RTk5 rugged tablets. iOS-based Scan3D deployments leverage the embedded LiDAR technology built into the latest iPad Pro and iPhone Pro (and Pro Max) models. Scan3D adds a new tool to the truck for surveyors, engineers, construction professionals, accident reconstruction specialists, and anyone else needing instant, mobile 3D scanning of buildings, walls, spaces, equipment, and much more.
"Our customers are always searching for new tools and methods to improve their accuracy, capability, and efficiency." said Butch Herter, Director of Hardware Development at Carlson Software. "The Scan3D solution provides not only a great standalone tool for scanning, but the point clouds it creates are the perfect complement to aerial or terrestrial point cloud data from any source, and integrate gracefully in Carlson's software to create more complete, more useful datasets."
