3D Modelling

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.

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.
  • Monitoring

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.
