Here’s my (biased) opinion why you shouldn’t.
Laser scanning looks easy… you just push a button, right? What could possibly go wrong? As laser scanning has become the norm, many people I talk to are considering buying their own laser scanner.
For most firms, I think this is the wrong decision and here’s why:
Scanner calibration and maintenance agreement
Software maintenance agreement (scanner software, as well as other software)
Scanner accessories (specialty tripods, targets, safety equipment, scanner batteries, etc)
Just as you do your job day in and day out, TruePoint 3D laser scans every day and understands the subtle nuances. We have developed the most efficient workflows possible today and our team has pretty much seen every circumstance. Would you trust your job to just anyone or would you prefer it was handled by a professional that specializes in that field?
TruePoint completes over 800 projects every year. We are a licensed engineering firm that focuses solely on laser scanning. Let us handle the scanning on your next project so you can focus on what your company does best.
