Floor plans, elevations, cross-sections, roof plans, and more will be delivered through the use of advanced 3d laser scanning tools. What is a scan-to-CAD process? A 3D laser scanner captures information and data about the existing object or structure. This data will be registered in a point cloud, ready to import into AutoCAD software, where the production of drawings begins. The point cloud data is used as a reference because it contains reliable and accurate records to produce as-built measured drawings according to your required detail level.
An as built CAD drawing can track the lifecycle of an object or building and record the changes of the building project at any existing point. Even with complex builds and structures, a 3D scanner will collect accurate data efficiently. The level of detail is dependent on the purpose of the survey, project and what results you are looking to achieve. This will target the scale of your drawing and how precise the information is documented.
