3D Laser Scanning on the Rise

In a recent article from the February 2018 Point of Beginning magazine, I was not surprised that the construction industry is embracing 3D laser scanning solutions. “The demand for laser scanning continues to grow.”

More companies are realizing the potential of 3D laser scan technology and trying to find ways to incorporate it into their business processes. Even those companies that are more risk-averse are seeing the benefits of acquiring laser scan data, processing the data into an accurate point cloud and creating 3D models.


I believe 3D laser scanning is an innovative and disruptive technology that provides clients the answers they need, ultimately saving them time and money by:

  • Reducing surveying time in the pre-design phase
  • Improving design efficiency and eliminating the need to return to the site
  • Increasing the accuracy of contractor pricing in the bidding stage
  • Reducing change orders and increasing off-site fabrication
  • Delivering complete and accurate as-built documentation

TruePoint completes over 800 projects every year and has earned a reputation for delivering excellent service on time and on budget. To discuss your project, contact me at

Featured Case Study:

3D Laser Scanning a Theatre to Generate a 3D Model

TruePoint 3D laser scanned a historic theater in Philadelphia, including the main floor, three balcony levels and box seats to generate a 3D Revit model for seating renovations. The target objects of data acquisition were structural features, including exposed columns and beams; and the architectural envelope of the audience area, including walls, floors, ceilings, doors, openings, railings, seats, floor and lighting.
