Considering Buying a Laser Scanner?
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.)
