3d-scanning bild med SITE i Luleå

3D-scanning company in northern Sweden

SITE from Luleå uses 3D-scanning to create time- and cost-effective projects for our customers, from the mines in Kiruna and Gällivare to all the different industries in northern Sweden.

How we use 3D-scanning

We use 3D-scanning for the design, further development and construction of all types of environments, with heavy industry and buildings as the most common application areas.

With 3D-scanning, we recreate the environment in a digital format with high accuracy, regardless of its complexity. Because the scanning captures everything within visible range, we can communicate early in the project with the highest possible clarity and precision. This avoids costly misunderstandings and we can present the most favourable solutions to our customers.

Examples of areas of use:

  • Project planning & visualization
  • Development & construction
  • Measurement & data collection
  • Quotation & communication documents

Advantages of 3D-scanning

Efficiency is an obvious key word when talking about the benefits of 3D-scanning. A scan collects large amounts of high-quality data in a fraction of the time it takes using conventional measurement methods. All it takes is a single site visit.

This in turn brings clear advantages in terms of costs and communication, as the time required for planning is greatly reduced and communication within the project is facilitated with documents of this quality.

Examples of benefits:

  • Cost effective
  • High quality data
  • Minimization of errors and misunderstandings
  • Excellent communication skills

This is how 3D-Scanning works

During a scan, the 3D-scanner shoots out laser light in all directions around it, for example with the help of rotating mirrors. When the light leaves the camera and hits a certain surface, it bounces back, whereupon sensors calculate the position of the hit surface.

Creates a point cloud

Each of the 3D-scanner’s measurements become individual points in a digital 3D-space, commonly called a point cloud or Point Cloud. All these points are then compiled into a graphical 3D-representation of the scanned environment, which can be further refined as needed.

Field work with 3D-scanning

For example when we streamlined the work by collecting data for drawings and visualizations.
