The weather needs to be optimal 

When scanning outdoors, precipitation is the most significant factor to consider. In fact, certain devices can be damaged by water, which means a survey should not be performed when it is raining or snowing. The laser would also capture the water droplets and snowflakes, leading to poor quality point clouds that are hard to use.  

3D laser scanning technology provided high-definition images 

The imagery that you bring in with a 3D laser scan is very high-definition and detailed. You will be able to see very clearly the areas that you are addressing with the laser scan. 

Laser scanning can be used for education 

One of the most interesting uses for 3D printing is for education. If you are presenting a project to a group of people that need to understand the purpose, 3D laser scanning can be used to compile high-definition imagery to present. You can also use 3D laser scanning to provide real-time data while you are on the job site. This data can then be presented to site managers and foremen.
