SHIP BUILDING & MARINE ENGINEERING
In naval architecture and marine engineering 3D documentation is used to help design, construct and install various on-board systems. It provides designers and planners a helpful tool for collecting accurate documentation to create 3D models of the actual vessel configuration.
Our workflow enables fast and reliable scan of vessels and on-board systems. With great ease and flexibility it can be installed in a few minutes on a tripod and set up. It scans surfaces with the laser beam in three dimensions and scans with millimeter precision space and surface geometries. The digital data can be imported in all standard CAD software solutions. Thus they form the basis for 3D plans and views and for different visualizations.
These data are available in the long term and in a freely selectable level of detail.
They allow for a diverse usage in shipbuilding applications, such as:
• Digitizing and upgrading complex entities such as shipyards, ship hulls, engine rooms, electrical systems and piping.
• Aiding ship design, construction and assembly.
• Assisting repair and inspection activities.
• Producing volume calculations of engine rooms for retrofit purposes.
• Ensuring quality inspections e.g. clash detection during installations
Our software is compatible with all commonly used software applications in the shipbuilding industry such as ShipConstructor, AVEVA, AutoCAD, Inventor, Navisworks, Catia, Bentley Microstation, NX and Pointools.
Risk minimization in projects where access is dificult and schedules are tight.
Lastly, thanks to all the above your construction risk and costs will be reduced! Using 3D Laser Scanning human error is eliminated, leaving no room for avoidable mistakes.
Survey areas, especially construction sites, are not always safe. There may be instances where access to site is restricted or not possible at all. 3D Laser Scanning allows for remote surveying where an individual does not need to directly access or work over the site.
This significantly reduces safety risk and time spent waiting around.
A fast and reliable technology to capture complex as-built status in any type of entity or structure.
Traditional surveying with a tape measure is time consuming. It can often take a full day, with multiple visits back to site after, for missed measurements or mistakes. Depending on the size of the site, 3D Laser Scanning can take just half a day. One full scan takes less than 2 minutes!
Because all the data is captured and registered back in the office, you will never go back to site again. You can simply pull up the scan and measure an area of the site or object from your desk. You can even share it easily with project stakeholders.
3D laser scanning is quicker and more accurate than traditional manual measurements. Time can be shortened from days – when done manually – to a few hours.
3D Laser Scanning works by shooting millions of laser points per second to capture the full internal and external detail of any building, environment or structure. This means whatever we are capturing the data is going to be extremely accurate.
By registering the data from the scans, a 3D point cloud model of the scanned site or object can be created with an accuracy of +/- 1 millimeter. We can then pull measurements from this data from from the comfort of our office. There is no need to re-visit paperwork, decipher messy notes or go back to site for missed measurements. Human error is eliminated.
