3D modelling makes it possible to get geometric details of various elements that can serve various purposes, for instance inspecting or taking precise measurements, such as an area, a volume or vector length between two points. Can-Explore uses two types of modelling equipment, i.e. a drone and a 3D scanner.Contact us
Mapping – Production of “As Built” Plans
The use of a fixed-wing drone allows Can-Explore to quickly reproduce the surface of a land area. The 3D model generated is accurate enough to produce as built plans. With Can-Explore’s team’s combined expertise, there are many benefits to using this method for producing as built plans:
- High accuracy;
- Fast and effective acquisition time;
- Comprehensive deliverable (point cloud and orthophoto) ;
- Creation of cross-section views;
- Creation of road profiles;
- Adaptability of deliverables according to client needs.
Mapping – Shoreline Surveys
Mapping with a drone allows Can-Explore to survey watercourse shorelines for purposes such as:
- Monitoring shoreline erosion;
- Identifying water levels during flood periods;
- Updating interactive maps;
- Environmentally managing a watercourse.
Modelling with Long-range 3D Scanner
Modelling with a 3D scanner (terrestrial Lidar) allows Can-Explore to reproduce the near perfect geometry of a structure. This high-precision geometry enables:
- Accurate measurements in all respects;
- Creation of as built plans
- Pre-manufacturing of elements to add to the structure;
- Verticality assessments;
- Deformation assessments.
3D Scanning with a Drone - Photogrammetry
3D scanning using a drone (photogrammetry) allows Can-Explore to model and determine the geometry of a structure. Although information from the terrestrial Lidar is of greater quality compared with that from a 3D model using a drone, it still enables:
- A summary localization of elements;
- Volume estimates;
- The creation of as built plans.
