Laser Scanning: A "Fit for Purpose" Approach

The following is a simplified overview of Summit's Scan to Design workflow.

First, start with registered point cloud data. It is typically difficult to decipher and to locate specific piping or equipment.

Registered point cloud data

The systems of interest are isolated using Summit's Scan to Design workflow. Background and routing information remains available to designers.

Scan data isolated into individual layers

The isolated piping can be viewed without the surrounding data for visualization, statusing, etc. There is no modeling done at this point.

Viewing isolated piping only

Relevant systems are modeled as required. Background data remains available for routing and clash detection purposes. Point cloud data is used instead of modeling for those systems not requiring fabrication, such as systems to be demolished, or unaltered systems.

Relevant systems modeled as required

3D modeled systems, using Bentley AutoPlant or AutoCAD Plant 3D, from which fabrication ISOs are generated.
