Amazingly accurate and detailed as-builts can be derived from a point cloud.
Anything that can be seen by a 3D scanner will be delivered to the point cloud for analysis and measurement. These point clouds will exist long after construction has started for reference to what was existing at the time the scan was performed.
Essentially, a “snap-shot” of the project is taken every time a scan is performed and can be later accessed for measurement and future reference.
These scans can be performed indoors or outdoors and do not depend on ambient light.
