The price for our 3D laser scanning service varies based on your project needs. We provide project proposals at no cost. Call us at 800-332-6273 to discuss your project!
Our laser scanning hardware covers many ranges of data collection, utilizing a variety of technologies. These include time-of-flight and phase-based terrestrial laser scanners for large scale scanning, and handheld structured light laser scanners for medium and small projects.
As part of our proposal process, we work with you to determine your specific scanning requirements. Based on these requirements, and the size of your project, scanning can take as little as a few hours to as much as a week.
Digital files are delivered either by online file sharing services, or we can mail you an encrypted hard drive which contains your data.
There are currently a number of software options for viewing/interacting with laser scan data. We recommend Autodesk ReCap, which can be downloaded for free here: http://www.autodesk.com/products/recap/free-trial. Alternatively, we can output our laser scan data to a number of common formats.
Large scale terrestrial laser scanners are typically accurate within 2-4 millimeters. Smaller scale handheld scanners can be as accurate as 0.1-0.3 millimeters.
We will work with you to minimize any downtime, and can provide daily work schedules to let you know which areas of your site our technicians will be operating in throughout the day.
We can accommodate items/projects from as small as a coin to as large as a building and as expansive as a site.
Depending on the size of your project, and the deliverables that are needed, turnaround time is typically between 2-4 weeks. We outline a work schedule, including a delivery estimate as part of our proposal process.
Yes, the scans have been accepted in courts at the local, state and federal levels.
We have never been in a situation where scans completed by this office have been precluded from being presented in court. That said, it is important to remember that in order to get the data accepted, in every case one must be prepared to authenticate the accuracy of the industry; the accuracy of the specific scanner; and the accuracy of the specific scan being presented. If this is done properly the scan should be accepted as just another form of accurate data collection.
