3D Marine Scanning – LiDAR

Our Marine LiDAR services are applicable to shipbuilding, repairs, and maintenance by capturing marine assets including dry docks, marine infrastructures, and ship components in 3D. The long-range 3D laser scanner maximizes resolution and accuracy while producing 3D point clouds with high accuracy and a high level of detail. Processed point clouds from 3D scanning represent the ‘as-built’ condition of the marine assets and can be registered and transformed into survey coordinates to develop accurate and highly detailed 3D "as-built" CAD drawings and BIM models.


Quality Inspection and Reverse Engineering

3D scanning is extremely useful for inspection of marine assets. With 3D data, a digital twin can be created to provide visual deviation color maps of the 'as-built' condition of the original design, allowing our 3D experts to detect the problems and provide support for naval architecture and marine equipment design. Legacy marine parts and assemblies of all sizes can be reconstructed without a CAD model, known as "reverse engineering."
