3D Laser Scanning Services

3D laser scanning is sometimes referred to as LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) or high definition surveying.  It is the most effective solution for addressing the most complicated challenges in measuring and locating the as-built conditions of any industrial environment.  To make the data actionable for a project manager or an engineer, the scanner outputs the data into a point cloud, which is essentially a virtual map of an objects surface geometry.  This collected information can be analyzed as a 3D CAD model to further measure the current deviation of an object’s shape or location from its designed specifications.

F3 is a leading provider of 3D laser scanning services and provides its clients with the following deliverables in a variety of formats:
