Zenith FTP  3-D  Scanner   




  1. What is a 3D Scanner?

    A 3D scanner is a device that analyses a real-world object or environment to collect data on its shape and possibly its appearance (e.g. colour). The collected data can then be used to construct digital three-dimensional models.

  2. What is the application of 3D scanner?

    Collected 3D data is useful for a wide variety of applications. These devices are used extensively by  topography/surveyors, civil engineering, architecture, archeology and the entertainment industry in the production of movies and video games. Other common applications of this technology include industrial design, orthotics and prosthetics, reverse engineering and prototyping, quality control/inspection and documentation of cultural artifacts.

  3. What is the use in Architecture/Construction industry and Civil Engineering ?


    • A laser scanner may function as the "eye" of a robot.
    • As-built drawings of Bridges, Industrial Plants, and Monuments.
    • Documentation of historical sites.
    • Site modelling and lay outing.
    • Quality Controls.
    • Quantity Surveys.
    • Freeway/roads Redesign.
    • Establishing a bench mark of pre-existing shape/state in order to detect structural changes resulting from exposure to extreme loadings such as earthquake, vessel/truck impact or fire.
    • Create GIS (Geographic information system) maps and Geomatics.
    • Subsurface Laser Scanning in mines and landfills.
    • Forensic Documentation and Analisys.


  4. What kind of tools are used to perform a 3D scanner?

    Leica ScanStation C10 and Leica ScanStation P20

    The versatile Leica ScanStation C10/P20 includes a high-accuracy/long-range scanner, tilt sensor, battery, controller, data storage, auto-adjusting video camera and laser plummet all in one compact, portable instrument. The ScanStation C10 also features major productivity advances, including a Smart X-Mirror™ design that lets users conduct full-dome scans in literally a few minutes using a spinning mirror or conduct small area scans efficiently with Smart X-Mirror’s oscillating mode.With up to 300m range and unequalled versatility for site, exterior, and interior applications, the Leica ScanStation C10/P20 makes High-Definition Surveying™ (HDS™ profitable for even more as-built, topographic, incident scene, and monitoring surveys. 


  5. What kinds of software's are used to extraction of deliverables?

    Leica's HDS software suite - Cyclone, CloudWorx, and TruView - is considered by many as the industry standard solution to capture, visualize, extract, analyze, share and represent point cloud data as traditional or enhanced deliverables. The suite includes powerful standalone modules and convenient CAD plug-ins for working with point cloud data directly within CAD applications.
    AutoDesk Suites
    AutoCad, AutoCad Civil 3D, AutoCad Map 3D, AutoCad Architecture, 
    3Ds Max, Revit.
