In today’s ever-changing technology landscape, laser scanning and reality capture tools have emerged as groundbreaking innovations that allow for precise and efficient data capture. While you may initially associate these tools with construction, they actually have a wide range of applications across various disciplines. From architecture and engineering to manufacturing, historical preservation and more, laser scanning offers immense versatility that can revolutionize the way professionals approach their work – and this blog will explore how!

Laser Scanning for Beginners

Laser scanning may seem intimidating, but we can help you succeed outside your comfort zone! Read on to learn how and where to set up a laser scanner + register points with Leica Cyclone Register 360 on an iPad. I’ll walk you through where to set up your scanner for each scan and what to look for on the Cyclone app when linking scans together.

Using Targets for Laser Scanning

Many operations that require real-world coordinates still rely on targets, brass caps and nails. These operations mostly work with civil applications, but for applications for the AEC world, the use of targets has fallen due to recent progressions in modern laser scanners such as the Leica RTC360. However, there are still some scenarios where deploying a target is what you need to navigate a tricky registration, giving you that warm fuzzy feeling knowing that everything is linked correctly.

Are you still using the archaic phrase, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” when it comes to adopting new technology in construction? Construction has been around for a while, and it is quite literally a building block of our society. While our society is advancing to a technology-driven future, construction, on the other hand, has mostly remained stagnant. So why are we still using “the old way” of doing things?

To keep pace, the construction industry must implement technology into their workflows. A great place to start would be doing a laser scan of your construction site. Laser scanning can improve the construction verification process, which affects all areas of your project.
