Need for 3D Scanning in Sydney

3D laser scanning is the process of measuring the built environment using laser scanning technology and converting these into digital 3D models. 3D scanners use laser light to scan any surface of a building and accurately capture its distance, shape and geometrics.

Here is how Avian helps you with 3D laser scanning in Sydney:

3D Laser Scanning is:

  • Creating detailed 3D Models
  • Inspection for civil engineering projects
  • Assessing plant and machinery fit-outs
  • Refurbishment and Renovations
  • Monitoring site topography and geometry
  • Defect identification, inspection and management

High resolution 3D laser scanning services in Sydney

3D laser scanners, also known as LiDAR scanners save the raw data as point clouds. These point clouds consist of millions of data points which can be merged, manipulated, coloured and converted into different file formats.

The point cloud can be processed in CAD, BIM or visualisation applications depending on your unique project needs and outcomes.

From construction sites to warehouses and residential renovations, you can capture it all via our 3D laser scanning services in Sydney.

Here are a few advantages of 3D laser scanning you should know about:

  • Quick and easy site data collection 
  • Minimum disruptions onsite 
  • Eliminate revisits
  • Easily detect issues and minimises risks 
  • Helps architects identify design errors 
  • Assists with assessing existing conditions
  • Real-time worksite inspections 
  • Visualize and manipulate real-world data in 3D Space

3D LiDAR scanning to improve on-site safety

Sometimes, it is simply not possible to manually measure and map the construction site – a practice that a lot of construction still stubbornly holds onto. 

Fortunately, many construction companies are slowly coming around, incorporating new technologies such as digital sensors, drone tech, cloud computing etc. to their projects. 

3D laser scanning aka LiDAR scanning is one such popular technology that reduces onsite risks by automating the surveying process. You don’t need to send workers to walk the construction site or enter confined spaces like underground pipelines for maintenance work anymore – the 3D laser scanner gets the job done without risk to staff.

FAQs About 3D Scanning Sydney

We have answered some common questions AEC clients have about 3D laser scanning services in Sydney and across the state of NSW.

3D laser scanning services in Sydney for Architecture, Engineering and Construction projects costs anywhere between $1600 – $2200 for a laser scanning technician to attend the site and scan. You can check out our laser scanning costing guide for more insights on how laser scanning is charged in Australia.

Depending on the size and shape of the building it usually takes us a day or two to scan both the interior and exterior of a large warehouse or commercial building. It takes longer to scan many rooms or internal details on the property i.e. HVAC.

You can check out this case study wherein our team conducted a scan to model a commercial warehouse scan to understand more about the process and benefits.

Using 3D Revit models allows for precision in design and installation as we are working with precision measurements from laser scanning. Also we are able to create 2D drawings out of 3D Revit models so you can still obtain drawings with more efficiency and accuracy.

We create all types of plans and drawings- Floor plans, Reflected Ceiling plans and views-Elevation, Section. Basically everything from construction and shop drawings to updated as-built, BIM and asset management models.

3D scanning services in Sydney are becoming increasingly popular among AEC professionals. They are popularly searched on Google with the search strong “3D scanning sydney”. This is because LiDARs offer better accuracy and convenience when compared to the traditional land surveying methods.

At Avian, we employ a comprehensive and strict quality management process:

  • Our team of AEC professionals and land surveyors is experienced in surveying and laser scanning and understands the common pitfalls in this type of work.
  • Using reliable and industry-leading scanning and surveying equipment and workflows.
  • Quality control gateways of all data at key stages: acquisition, pre and post-processing and bespoke client reporting.

3D scanning services for Construction projects in Sydney & across NSW is a total game changer for the building and construction industry of the state. Using 3D scanning services, our land surveyors can assess and measure site conditions, determine volumes, track changes, and draft site plans for features, levels and breaklines.

During construction, we use interior 3D laser scanning for BIM, design and installation and updating site drawings. This helps project managers and contractors who have tight schedules and need to work with accurate site measurements and construction site monitoring information. 

You can check out our blog on 3D laser scanning in construction to know more.

We can deliver 3D models and drawings securely via our cloud in any file format. 3D scan data is captured in point cloud and then converted to 3D models using BIM or CAD software. Typically, we provide 3D models to clients with Revit or CAD files but also files for applications like Microstation, Civil 3D and ArchiCAD.

Our 3D models are easily compatible with your existing workflow and software applications.

We need the client to provide us with a brief of the project and any supporting information (drawings/sketches) as to what surveys are required. We usually ask for these details from the client when they book a consultation.
