Aries uses an advanced laser 3D Scanner for generating the as-built data. In principle, the laser scanner works by sending an infrared laser beam into a rotating mirror that deflects the laser beam around the environment being scanned. These reflected images are then transferred as point clouds and then developed into a 3D model. Our 3D scanner provides our naval architects and structural engineers with an efficient tool for rapid, seamless and precise documentation of the current status of any construction; offshore or onshore, ships, rigs, platforms, terminals, piping systems and structures of every kind. Laser Scanning is ideal for designing, ship building, restructuring and extending technical and industrial plants such as refineries, power plants and production facilities.
3D scanning Measurement
Complex surfaces can be captured as a dense 3D scan data by the FARO Laser Scanner. This allows to perform non-contact, 3D inspections with ease. Non-contact 3D scanning from FARO can digitize features such as flush and gap that are difficult to inspect with contact methods. Laser scanning for 3D documentation can be a faster method produces a more comprehensive report.
