Reality Capture

We provide 3D laser scanning services to various industries as well as the extra service of 3d model creation and 2d documentation of as-built structures and products including fully fledged BIM models.

We look forward to being of service to you.

As-built documentation

As-built documentation using 3D laser scanning technology provides users with detailed point clouds which enable 3D modeling for diverse tasks including building reconstruction, plant layout and enhanced data presentation with augmented reality.

Asset and facility management

3D laser scanning can provide engineers with detailed 3D models which accurately document entire facilities and their assets, such as power components, machinery and pipe work. This scan data can be used for building management, collision detection for retrofits, as-built documentation for CAD modeling and other plant design tasks.

Building Information Modeling

3D laser scanning aids building design at every stage of construction. With this 3D modelling tool you can compare the current 3D building status with the CAD model at any time – a quality control process which eliminates expensive and time-consuming rework.

No contact inspection

Fragile, complex and free-form surfaces can be captured as dense and detailed 3D point clouds by laser scanning, allowing users to perform non-contact 3D inspections with ease and can support forensic experts by saving time and generating superior deliverables.

Construction Inspection

As buildings or structures are constructed, scanning can offer the user a fast and accurate method of capturing the build to date, which can then be compared with the original CAD/ BIM model and project time-line.

Archaeology

Laser scanning provides extraordinarily precise 3D digital surface models of movable artifacts, buildings, site terrains, and even entire landscapes. It’s ability to cost effectively provide accurate and highly detailed documentary data in minimal amounts of time has largely contributed to its rising popularity.

Cultural Heritage Management

Over the years we have witnessed severe damage and the tragic loss of priceless Heritage buildings due to fires or other natural disasters.

Due to outdated documentation/drawings, the reconstruction or repairs of a damaged building often proves difficult to reproduce to the same level of accuracy or detail.

Furthermore, insurance claim disputes often arise due to insufficient documentation of as-built conditions and included assets, equipment, furniture etc.

Protecting and recording the past so that we can pass on our heritage to future generations to enjoy, Modena understands the importance of heritage recording and minimising the risk of damage to historic sites.
Using the latest laser scanning technology, we are able to capture heritage buildings, monuments or sites in highly accurate detail.
All data captured on site can be archived for historic records or used to create RAW scan Imagery, 2D CAD drawings or 3D BIM Models.
3D Point Cloud laser scanning provides the following major benefits for Heritage Buildings:

  • Highly accurate 3D surveyed representation of an entire building or buildings.
  • Ability to create detailed 3D model and up to date drawings for reconstruction or council plans (if required in the future).
  • Verification of included assets for insurance claims.

Laser scanning provides extraordinarily precise 3D digital surface models of movable artifacts, buildings, site terrains, and even entire landscapes. It’s ability to cost effectively provide accurate and highly detailed documentary data in minimal amounts of time has largely contributed to its rising popularity.
