Buying our first scanner - Need buying advice for fast scanner on site

Post by david@newcad.se » Wed Aug 29, 2018 3:35 pm

We are looking into buying our first scanner. We are scanning buildings in various sizes. An important feature is that it is fast on site with short scanning time. Quick coloring would also be nice.

Do you got any advice in what scanner I should get?

I've been browsing around a lot and tried to compare different scanners, but it's hard for me that is rather new into scanning.

here are many good tools out there but I`d recommend Z+F Imager 5016. This short video shows I`ve done 136 scan in a single day an all registered and colorized on site with it.

That looks interesting. Is it a fully targetless system?

I need approximately 10 mm spacing and common ranges is about 30 meters. Can you convert that in scanning time?

There are a few good options depending on your accuracy and budget needs. For a lower budget, a Leica BLK 360 could be a good option if the accuracies work for you. For better accuracies and bigger budget, check out the Faro Focus line or Leica RTC 360. If you need super fast collection check out the Zeb Revo. Again, check to see if the accuracy is right for your requirements.
