Is it possible to do a Flatness Test on a wall? How?

Post by CO96Cons » Mon Apr 15, 2019 6:51 pm

Hello,

Hope everyone is well. I have been doing floor flatness for different projects and have gotten great numbers and results. Is it possible at all to do a similar test but for a wall? So a Flaness test for a wall?

I tried using the Rythm app Inspector, but it only takes whatever the floor is.

Thanks for the help and I look forward to hearing some answers.

Cheers

Hi
you could try rotating the point cloud by 90 Degrees and treat it as ground and to your analysis on that.

Try cloud compare (open source).

You can go 2 ways with it.

1. Create a vertical plane in CAD and export dxf to cloud compare. Do a comparison with the point cloud. Mind your units
2. As suggested rotate the cloud by 90 degrees. Create a height map.

Have fun!

3DReshaper has a "flatness" and "levelness" tool in their survey package.

BuildIt for Construction (Faro) makes quick work of this sort of thing. Highly recommend it.
