Reality Capture – Digitizing the physical world 03.30.2016

Nothing informs a design like proper context and designers at the leading edge of technology are benefiting from detailed and accurate 3D models of the built environment.

scannerReality Capture is a catch-phrase which describes the process of measuring, digitizing and documenting existing conditions for use by 3D-based design tools.



• Laser Scanners create Point Clouds – dense sets of three-dimensional data points – which can be analyzed, dimensioned, and imported into software like AutoCAD, Revit and SketchUp to put a design into context with existing conditions.
• Laser Scanners can also provide owners, stakeholders and the design team with 360° panoramic photographs which can be dimensioned in a web browser.
