By their very nature ships and boats, apart from the smallest craft, are generally expensive if not impossible to transport for scanning. 3D Engineers comes to you and sets up equipment on-site. Recording for insurance, pipe layout and health and safety purposes is all possible. Ability to move between rooms and then join scans together to create a design layout to high accuracy in 3D space is possible. Coupled with existing external ship design, creates a cohesive whole. Colorised 3D point cloud scans and panoramic images allow you to see your data in ways previously not possible. It is important to understand that a 3D scan is the first part of the Computer Aided Design (CAD) journey. It is possible, but in 3D Engineers experience only in a minority of projects, that the scan is all that is needed. The experience to move the design data collected through to a completed design for a CAD program, such as Solidworks, is proven.
