High definition laser scanning has important applications for Architecture by laying the framework for analysis, design and renovation of existing structures. From the 3D point data, standard 2D plans, elevations, and sections can be generated in the form of deliverables. An accurate 3D model can be generated to aid design, manage buildings, preserve historic structures, or market real-estate.
Many AEC firms are moving towards scan derived products because of the immense detail and accuracy captured while meeting project timelines. Wall deflections or irregularities can be identified through scanning that may otherwise go undetected. Indoor and façade measurements can be united to establish dimensions true to reality. An accurate 3D model can be generated aid design, manage buildings and preserve historic structures
