3D laser scanning helps you create asset documents of any area like industrial units, construction sites, excavation pits, monuments, and for that matter anything that has to be digitized in a very less turnaround time of site activity. 3d Laser scanning uses a laser, normally Class 1, to scan up to 1 million points per second in a 360 degree horizontal and 320-degree zenith. Multiple set of points recorded in a site called a point cloud is used to create the 3d models or 2d drawings.
As the name implies it is an unmanned scanning drone controlled by wireless remote using a GPS network to capture huge amounts of vacant or populated areas helping architects and town planning commissions to visualize the current ground reality for feasibility checking of any further development or refurbishments.
3D Laser Scanning is perfect for reverse engineering and design. Creating models from scan data helps in understanding site conditions and helps designers, architects, planners to assess the area for new equipment installations, piping installations, HVAC replacements. We have multiple applications where we scanned and delivered 3D Models for guarding design in Auto CAD, Catia, UG & Nupas Cadmatic.
Creating as-built BIM models of the site using scan data can save thousands of rupees and large amounts of time by identifying mistakes and eliminating rework. The same created BIM model can be integrated with the architect's BIM model helping in project monitoring. Utilizing 3D laser scanning to capture actual site conditions on a continuous basis to create a series of as-built BIM models can be used for periodical verification with the design model. Any irregularities can be spotted, assessed and corrective action taken before costly rework is required.
Creating intelligent models using as-built scan models in software like PDMS, PDS, Plant 3D & SP3D helps in creating a database of the site entities. The model helps in assessing the lifecycle of a plant, procurement, Plant maintenance, and scheduling of renovation works.
As the world and majority of the developed and developing countries are striving towards global environmental sustainability. To protect and adhere to the same IMO is passing resolutions forex. BWTS (ecological mixing of water) & retrofitting works on vessels. 3D laser scanning is playing a prominent role in capturing and creating 3d model for feasibility studies, new line designing, space calculation for new equipment installations. EDGE 3D also provides detailed engineering drawings for vessels.
As a company founded by young entrepreneurs like 80 – 90’s kids, most of our childhood was in constant interaction with nature and our ancestral history, engineering skills, architectural and construction skills in form of Beautiful monuments and antiques. It’s our duty to safeguard that old but efficient technology. EDGE 3D has taken up the responsibility of documenting the monuments through laser scanning and digitizing it in order to create 3d printed models for future reference and knowledge transfer to the coming generations. For example, if the technology was present mid 19th century, we could have preserved the beautiful seven wonders of the world.
Storage tanks are a popular term in any industry handling liquid materials. There exists a very rigorous methodology for designing and maintenance of tanks, as the tanks vary in handling different liquids i.e crude, refined products, acids, chemicals, and hazardous substances. Even though designing of tanks is done as per API 650 standards considering various factors to optimize the best life of the tank’s structural strength and integrity, there are incidents where the tanks have failed to serve their purpose and became not useful or certain times the tank’s exploded failing to handle the internal pressure created by gases like vapor’s. Most of the incidents occurred due to improper maintenance or less strengthening towards the structural integrity and climate changes. We at EDGE 3D scans the tanks periodically and generate the structural deformation reports for our clients to understand the site condition and take the right decisions at right time for the maintenance.
Reverse Engineering can be used to address many engineering functions like Original Part remanufacturing, Original part repair, Part Redesign, Part bench-marking, etc. With the latest handheld scanners and portable CMM inspection tools at Edge 3D, we calculate and compare complex geometry, surfaces, and feature positions to nominal data giving our clients cutting edge solutions to their various requirements.
By using Matterport services Edge 3D can capture a property, unit or space in a 3D format which can be published and experienced online.
