The latest service added to our toolbox is 3D scanning. At Dapp we noticed an increasing demand for this service. In addition, 3D scanning your location has numerous advantages, which we would like to highlight below.
First of all, it is important to know exactly how 3D scanning works. By walking through your factory with a camera that can rotate 360 degrees and taking pictures at every turn, the software can, due to the overlap in the pictures, join them together and make a whole. Next, the 3D scanner can also use infrared to map the geometry. The 3D model that is eventually delivered is then enormously useful in various situations! For example, we can use the 3D model to create a 2D floor plan. Compared to manually measuring machine lines, for example, this saves a lot of time. In addition, a 3D scan is very accurate. The supplier of our 3D scanner indicates that it matches reality by at least 99%. Through calibration measurements, we can reduce this margin of error even further.
You can also get a lot of added value out of your scans through the various functionalities in the software package. For example, you can give a virtual tour through your factory, or quickly view certain things, such as machine parts or piping, in detail without having to go through the entire factory. Using tags that you can place in your scan, you can add additional information your virtual factory. This offers newly hired people, for example, an accessible way to quickly become familiar with your factory.
