New to Scanning - Looking for Recommendations

Post by ArthurPodium » Wed Jul 10, 2019 3:38 am

Hi All,

I've recently started to look into using laser scanning for work and found this Forum and was hoping to see who can assist me in pointing me in a direction to start. Apprecaite any suggestions/recommendations.

I work in construction and my main applications are to inspect substrates such as concrete floors and gyprock walls in bathrooms. To be able to check against the relevant codes of flattness, plumb, squareness, etc. Areas can be from a 2m x 2m bathroom to a 20m x 20m concrete floor. What i was hoping to achieve was to be able to provide a heat map of the floor and or walls or provide evidence to show how far out of level/square/flatness a substrate is from where it should be. I am working to an accuracy of 1-2mm

What would you all recommend to look into as in a unit and software to deliver these outcomes?

Will spend the evening reading through the forum but if anyone can assist it would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks

Arthur

Hi (Czesc!) Arthur,

I think from my experience it will be good if you could play with Leica Cyclone Register or Survey license.
For your purposes Survey license has got more applications such as floor flatness.
Also, it will be worth to play with new Leica Cyclone and 3D reshaper.

If you have more questions, guys from LSF can help you or If you cloud send me an email I'll try to answer your questions.

Arthur,

We have seen a huge rise in the number of asbuilt flatness slab scans we are conducting, probably due to the uncertainty of the slabs quality, this has now become part of major handovers and has been written into contracts to ensure that the slab has been created within tolerance, usually 3mm over 3m straight edge. We use the Leica P series which gives us a great results which we contour on a 0.5m grid then overlay with a colour elevation image. Clients have been extremely happy with the results due to its clarity and speed of delivery. Let me know if you need anything or I can point you in the right direction. See attached a floor levelness colour image, where each colour represents a nominated colour deviation usually 5mm.

Currently I use a FARO Focus S 350 to scan, Scene to process and the Rhithm bolt-on app to do analysis of our floors in our projects. I get great results and our project management have been very happy with the deliverables. I use it also to do as-builts of PT decks, steel and old buildings after we gut them for repurposing. All though I haven't done it yet, you can scan and analyze wet pours on the fly with Scene/Rhithm. I've done it in an office setting though. Scene can export .RCP files and projects to use in about anything Autocad also.
I used a P-40 at my previous survey company but I didn't get to touch the processing end of it. Leica and FARO both make great units but I feel they are different animals and you can't go wrong with either. But I will pick the FARO for the size and ease of operation. The P-40 is a monster and comes in a coffin. We are currently building a 30-story building and I have to do pre-pour scans of the PT deck. The buck hoist is routinely 2-5 floors behind the top floor so I have to rope and ladder my scanner to get to the top. It's just my experience so far.
