Examples of items and systems isolated into individual groups. Groups can be exported and modeled with clarity since grouped items can be independently turned on or off.
The isolation process of scan points is simple. First we start with a low error scan registration. Registration is the process of stitching each scan to it's neighboring scan's coordinates, and low error means the scans are registered together as one, usually within a tolerance of no more than 2 mm per 100 feet of distance. Next we determine each item or component that is to be isolated or individually "layered" and the process of assigning these points into their own layers begins. On average the isolation process takes 2 to 3 days, but could be longer for large or complex projects. Once isolation is completed, each item can be individually exported as scan data, and brought into a CAD program as an overlay for scan data modeling. For example: structure, piping, equipment, etc., can be imported independently into your CAD software.
