3D Laser Scanning - What is it ?

 3D Laser Scanning is a non-contact, non-destructive technology that digitally captures the shape and dimensions of physical structures and objects using a line of sight laser light. 3D laser scanning uses a very rapid laser beam of up to 1 million points per second to scan the environment and capture a vast quantity of data from the surface of structures and objects in the form of a pointcloud, where each point has it’s own xyz coordinate. 

In other words 3D laser scanning is a way to capture a structure or objects exact size and shape and represent this in the computer world as a digital 3-dimensional model.

3D laser scanners measure fine details and capture free-form shapes to quickly generate highly accurate point clouds. 3D laser scanning is ideally suited to the measurement and inspection of contoured surfaces and complex geometries which require massive amounts of data for their accurate description and where doing this is impractical with the use of traditional measurement methods.
