Benefits of Laser Scanning

3D laser scanning allows TruePoint to provide clients with precise data in a short amount of time. Our scan technicians accurately and efficiently capture data in locations where accessibility is difficult and areas are unsafe. Laser scanning can be completed a distance away from energized equipment. The smallest details can be captured in highly congested areas. TruePoint can provide reliable, accurate as-built information for facility upgrades and expansions. 3D laser scanning can aid in design, construction sequencing and scheduling, plus reduce change orders.

Deliverables and Services

BIM/CAD deliverables can be provided in a variety of formats including AutoCAD Plant 3D, Navisworks, Bentley MicroStation, Revit, AutoCAD MEP, or simple AutoCAD solids.

Point cloud deliverables can include file formats such as:

  • Leica (.pts, .ptx, .ptg)
  • Autodesk Recap (.rcs and/or .rcp)
  • Bentley (.pod)

Additional services include 2D site plans and 3D BIM models in additional Autodesk products such as AutoCAD Civil 3D. Leica TruViews and full color photographs complement the deliverables and further expand on details from laser scan data in a standard Microsoft Windows environment. Visual inspection of towers can be delivered with aerial drone video and photogrammetry services.

Data can be used to create accurate as-builts of the facility, aid in the generation of isometric drawings and for clash detection and pre-fabrication purposes.

Our engineers can work closely with clients to develop project phasing and sequencing, custom equipment tagging, pipe scheduling and sorting phasing in Revit. They can assign properties of pipes including pipe material specifications and conduct volume calculations and deformation analysis. We can use ClearEdge 3D Edgewise software to process piping and build custom libraries specific to client needs. Custom Revit families can also be generated to build a library of custom content.
