3D Scans

As human evolution took place humans built things on grander scales, constantly improving and learning better building principles. Now in the 21st century that is no different. UAV's and Robotic technology has increased humans ability to build with precision and accuracy that was only achievable in the past by the most master of builders. Although we have made our name in NYC for our 3D Lidar Scanning Services, we are proud to serve many locations in the United States.

Today using LiDAR to measure existing conditions is accurate down to the 0.5mm. When it's time to put an addition on your existing building or facility, getting a 3D LiDAR scan of the environment can save the project (Owner) tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in man hours for layout, coordination, human error, etc...

Gaining "Full Project Awareness" is key from the beginning of a renovation all the way through the life of a Commercial or Industrial Building. When you bring a 3D Model to the table of a project many positive things occur:

  • Construction Team makes more informed decisions
  • Elevation Conflicts & Clash Detection
  • Verify Changes over time (possible foundation settling issues)
  • Verify Construction Processes
  • Verify Retro-fits and Validate existing conditions
  • Create working RVT for alignment with existing CAD files
  • Preservation of Historical & Cultural Environments

Map Measurements utilizing point clouds

Point clouds are a collection of millions of very accurate dots, that when viewed together create a three-dimensional image of a structure or real-life object or space and much, much more. 

The most common use of point clouds is to capture a measurement and create updated drawings of a building. These are then used for designing and managing renovations. MTI Point cloud data is processed in several Revit using a Leica RTC 360 scanner to produce different types of 2D drawings and/or 3D models.

At MTI we understand engineers and construction managers need an accurate measurement of 3D points. We can help you capture these images for your visualization and modeling needs. We use industry-leading, survey-grade Leica laser scanners.  Leica has the best 3d laser scanners on the market, delivering outstanding range, speed and the highest quality 3D data. We have tested other scanners and they do not compare.

Leica has complete laser scanning ability with precise and accurate instruments, state of the art software, and dependable services.

MTI started 3D Lidar Scanning to help make the construction process smoother. How you ask? In older buildings construction teams may not have accurate building drawings or any drawings at all. This can lead to confusion of placement of new mechanical and electrical systems which can lead to them working ineffectively or not at all. The back and forth between the construction manager and sub-contractors can lead to a lot of finger-pointing, delayed project finish dates and drive up project costs. When we utilize our Leica RTC 360 it allows us to automatically pre-register point cloud data in the field to quickly conduct quality control checks, improve productivity and make better-informed decisions on site.

The RTC360 3D laser scanner is the perfect solution for MTI to manage project complexities with accurate and reliable 3D representations and assist the project team with reliable accurate data they can trust.

These 3D environments created by the Leica Scanner and processed by the MTI team and partners will be exactly what you need for Full Project Awareness, to get the job done correctly, on time and on budget. Don't skimp on the front end because it will cost you in the end.
