Scan data is linked directly into your 2D or 3D AutoCAD environment for the development of new or existing plant layouts. This technology allows Design Systems, Inc. to start with correct data on all of our new projects, which lowers our risk and allows us to start working on new layouts without having to worry about what is actually there. With laser scanning, we now have the means to bring as built data directly into our AutoCAD layouts without having to translate someone’s mark-ups on a drawing. Field checking with tape measures is slow and filled with errors. Laser scanning takes this process completely out of the standard 2D or 3D layout workflow, improving accuracy while reducing design time.
