Webshare is freely available software offering powerful facilities for use with scan files. An intuitive overview map presents scans arranged as a ‘birds-eye’ view of your plant. Webshare enables you to walk your site from your PC, record measurements, annotate with site specific data or carry out simple calculations. .
Scan data is held behind the 360° high resolution digital images the scanner records at end of each scan using its 70 megapixel camera, but these photographs hold point cloud data behind them, which makes them incredibly accurate to measure from.
Clients already using this are making huge saving in time and money as well as increasing safety, by reducing the risk of having people walking around your site.
There are several software options, including:
2GO: This allows you to store the files directly on a USB, so you can plug and play into any machine, without the need to reinstall software on new machines.
LOCAL SERVER: This goes onto your companies’ server and allows your allocated staff to access the data, through their internet explorer.
CLOUD SERVER: This goes onto a secure based outside server, which allows you to grant access to whoever around the world to your data via the internet.
If you are not running with an established asset management system, simply attach documentation of any format against equipment like pumps, valves, flanges everything. Vendor information can be scanned and linked to the viewed image, as well as notes and references all accessed with a simple click.
Asset management systems work with a unique number, necessary to retrieve details about a specific piece of equipment from the system. Often to retrieve this number, engineers are required to make a site visit to establish correct number. Why not use our Webshare from your office computer. The simple overview allowing information to be retrieved simply. Just a physical click on the viewed equipment to bring up its asset details.
Apart from measurements, the scan files can be used to add annotations. Equipment tag numbers, facilities management system identifiers or references to vendors. The annotation can even contain ‘hyperlinks’ allowing direct connection to vendor sites are indeed your own record systems. Or simply notes relating to previous maintenance or repairs, handy for orientation and training.
Using Webshare you are able to make accurate measurements (+/- 1mm) from your site scans. This facility remains very popular with our clients who are saving considerable time otherwise spent visiting sites. Using for instance scan data to calculate storage tank bund volumes, making allowances for ‘dead-wood’ would using traditional methods take days to achieve.
