3D Laser Scanning

JPJ Engineering is fully equipped for 3D laser scanning and the process of delivering point clouds, project models, and high definition mesh products. 3D laser scanning uses safe light lasers through a non-destructive technology to produce high accuracy data points. By combining millions of closely spaced data points, the point cloud is created. These point clouds are then used to create a model or a high definition mesh that represents the object's surface in an editable CAD drawing.

The digitization of real-world objects provides detailed as-built conditions for many technical applications.

JPJ Engineering offers 3D laser scanning with data capture at up to 216,000 points per second. This can rapidly produce high accuracy, clean data that is unrivaled. The ability to produce high accuracy data positions is ideally suited to a variety of industrial and high-accuracy civil applications.

  • Industrial Facilities: Capture high-accuracy, as-built documentation for facility redesign and revamp projects or for updating existing plant documentation.
  • Civil Engineering: For projects with tight tolerances and complex designs. This is the best tool to rapidly capture highly accurate 3D data.
  • Inspection/Reverse Engineering: Extract measurements and create 3D models when there is no existing CAD data available.
  • Surveying: Capture high-resolution data for topographical maps, generating 2D and 3D CAD views, measure distances, areas, and volumes.
