3D Laser Scanning

Recording site assets in a fraction of time

Offering 3D Laser scanning, which is widely accepted as the fastest measured surveying method. Its ability to record up to 960k points per second up to a 1mm accuracy, enabling A3D to digitise site assets in a fraction of time traditional methods take. Due to its speed, recording your sites becomes incredibly fast and detailed, offering our clients considerable savings. With our range of bolt on applications A3D can offer tank analysis, 3D models, facilities management and plant videos.
