FIELD SURVEYS UTILIZING 3D LASER SCANNER

B-CAD utilizes the latest 3D Scanning Technology to gather data of existing facilities and conditions. The Point cloud data we create from our scanner is typically used to create a 2D CAD drawing or 3D Revit model of the building or objects surveyed.

We know the important role as-built documentation has in helping you avoid delays through reworks, maintenance, or renovation phases of a project. When field surveys are completed, the point clouds can be turned over to you so that your company has a record of that 3D data.


B-CAD’s 3D laser scanning services will capture images of entire rooms, including ceiling, every fixture, every feature, so that your facility is measured and drawn using the most accurate method.

What could typically require two people measuring a room now takes one person, cutting survey time in half.
