Re: Who's Scanning?

We don't scan ourselves currently, but we have used it on a couple projects for different reasons. One was to coordinate a complex geometric entrance to a building. The steel was scanned and then modeled in its exact position. We then used that model to build up the architectural portion to help the fabricators. We have also had mechanical rooms scanned to inform us of the as-built condition. Scanning is much more accurate than measuring by hand, and you don't miss anything. You can always open the data and tour the site virtually, which is very beneficial.
