Significantly Reduce Civil, BIM & Plant Workflows with New 3D Laser Scanning Technologies


Free Webinar: Improve Civil, BIM & Plant Workflows with 3D Laser Scanning Hardware

When it comes to 3D laser scanning, hardware is critical to success! Learn about 3D laser scanners and how to optimize their use in CAD workflows!

Today’s ultrahigh-speed laser scanners can shorten CAD workflows through increased data-collection speeds and accuracy. Selecting the right scanner, field workflow, and data resolutions will make for a smooth transition through the registration and data mining processes. In this webinar you’ll get a first-hand look at how today’s scanning technology is improving workflows for:

  • Civil/Survey applications
  • Building information modeling (BIM)
  • Plant design

In each instance we will look at a holistic workflow approach for each example focusing on the importance of proper data collection.

Attendees will also see first-hand Leica Geosystems’ latest break-through, the Leica ScanStation P20 3D Laser Scanner. This compact ScanStation brings unprecedented data quality at range (120m max), plus outstanding environmental capabilities, survey-grade tilt compensation, and an industry first "Check & Adjust" capability that enables users to electronically tune instrument accuracy to ensure the highest level of performance without having to send it to the factory or service center.

Today’s powerful point-cloud processing software is only as good as the data you feed it.
