One way that 3D laser scanning can provide value is by providing education to the operators and people on the job site. 3D laser scanning technology collects high-quality, 3-dimensional data that can be used for a variety of applications. Operators can get a better look at areas of their structure that they otherwise would not be able to. Additionally, you can also use 3D laser scanning to compile presentations. 


3D laser scanning technology can provide value in the engineering industry. The ability to scan any object and then use CAD for modification makes both reverse engineering and rapid prototyping an extremely streamlined process. Detailed measurements can be performed, and investigation into mechanical properties is simplified. Both are incredibly valuable. 


In a similar respect to engineering, rapid prototyping and reverse engineering are fundamental to the design of most products. When working with a demanding clientele, any technique that assists in better results and a faster turnaround is often welcomed. The introduction of 3D scanning certainly provides this. If you have been tasked with compiling the information needed to design a new structure, then 3D laser scanning technology is a valuable tool.
