At 3D Engineering Solutions we’ve recently added another tool to our 3D laser scanning services. We now regularly use a new structured light scanning device—the Steinbichler Comet L3D. It uses LED blue light technology and can capture up to two million points in 1.5 seconds. We’ve already employed the technology for turbine blade and […]

Recently my company—3D Engineering Solutions—used high-speed long range laser scanning to capture precise measurements of Union Terminal—a National Historic Landmark and massive art deco building here in Cincinnati. The Faro laser scanner we used is small, portable, and has a wide-range of uses. For this project we captured Union Terminal’s measurements with millimeter-accuracy in just […]
