The process of upgrading, troubleshooting and/or servicing an existing facility is made much more efficient with as-built drawings. But what if a customer doesn’t have them?
Telstar’s solution is a Leica BLK360 Imaging Laser Scanner that allows us to prepare AutoCAD drawings for existing building and infrastructure ꟷ without the use of surveying crews.
WHY A 3D LASER SCANNER?
3D laser scanners measure ultra-fine details and capture free-form shapes to quickly generate highly accurate point clouds. With the point cloud data, Telstar drafters create a 3D model of a customer’s facility in Revit or AutoCAD 3D, which enables the precise reproduction of the scanned location. The facility model can also be modified in CAD to correct imperfections.
New equipment, piping, and other infrastructure are easily drawn into the CAD model, and 2D slices can be taken from anywhere in the newly created 3D model to create an accurate layout or plan drawings. These drawings are reviewed by the owner and Telstar crews before any work in the field is started.
