3D Scanning Services Cumbria

3D Scanning, Technology|

What is 3D laser scanning?
A 3D scanner is a laser emitting device that analyses and records a real-world object or environment by collecting information on its x/y/z co-ordinates, shape, proximity and even its appearance (e.g. colour). The collected data can then be used to construct digital three-dimensional models. Commendium Ltd, based in Cumbria, uses a Riegl VZ400 on a Gitzo tripod to ensure a high level of detail and great coverage when performing its scanning services. It’s an expensive, but robust, system with a range of 1.5 – 600m – meaning we can get a larger area recorded in with less scans – in a short time frame.

Of course, scanning is just the first part of the process and work is done to the scan data in order to output it all in a format that is most suited to its intended purpose. […]
