USING MODERN 3D SCANNING TECHNOLOGY MAPPING YOUR SITE FOR ANALYSIS, MODELING AND DOCUMENTATION
In just four years, Advanced 3D Laser Solutions has quickly established itself with a strong client base in the UK and Europe. After Establishing a strong client base in the UK, the team set its sights on Europe, particularly in the Netherlands, as its offered new opportunities to expand the company’s offering.
VIRTUAL SITE TOURS
Our established clients have seen the benefit from having had A3D complete the 3D laser scanning of their sites where staff now working from home can use the scan data to continue visiting sites without necessarily stepping foot on site. The A3D solution allowing staff to walk, measure and inspect site without leaving their home desk. Furthermore, one of our major clients has quantified by around 40%, the saving in site visits from using A3D recorded 3D laser scan data.
This is Part of a clients site 3D Model,have a closer look and pan around this 3D spec driven model it depicts the different services. For example what product is running through the lines. These Models offer a number of different outputs.
The modelling software we use at A3D is Auto Cad Plant 3D. We have found that this software is familiar with most of our clients engineering departments as they use the software for other forms of in house P&ID work. We use the data gathered out on site to then trace over, using the Auto Cad software which provides a spec driven catalogue with all the piping components.
DETAILED 3D SURVEY
By using proven 3D Laser Scanning techniques A3D are able to get a full 360 survey of your site, which means we only need to survey your site once and are able to take into account everything for future clash detection.
A3D use Autodesk Plant 3D a cost-effective option for detailed plant design and when coupled with the sites point cloud data, you have a powerful tool to layout pipework & equipment.
Once the 3D Design has been undertaken, its becomes a quick function to export detailed isometrics, bill of materials, cut piece lists, weld lists and all built against clients design/CAD standards.
The potential savings to clients our considerable using our 3D techniques rather than having to engage separate companies who will insist on completing their own site surveys. As FEED moves through to detailed design, the final 3D model will enable the export of the pipework fabrication packs.
By using systems such as laser scanning technology, semi-automated modelling systems and cost-effective modelling design packages, clients see a reduction in design costs.
With our 4D Lizard cloud application, clients are able to login and get a complete picture of design progress, with the ability to comment and upload / download required documentation.

A3D will complete pre-planning in order to determine the most efficient and therefore, cost effective solution.
RISK & METHOD STATEMENTS
A3D recognise that any form of site work on an operating site must be subject of both RAMS along with planning documents in order to expedite an efficient and safe survey.
3D LASER SCAN
Recognised as the referred method for accurately capturing measured site data in using 3D laser scanning instruments. Traditional methods being time consuming and subject to error.
REGISTER SCAN DATA
Once A3D has been out on site with the 3D Laser Scanners we then process the scan using faro scene software.
AUTO PIPEWORK RECOGNITION
A3D uses pipework recognition software to pick out the pipework from the point cloud data this save valuable time modelling.
STEEL WORK EXTRAPOLATION
A3D can provide steel work models this can aid clients in the situation where they need feed a new line through the site. A3D offer clash detection services.
ADD PIPING COMPONENTS
Auto Cad Plant 3D has a catalogue of spec driven components which replicate onsite assets which can be given individual numbers which correspond with asset management systems.
ADD LINE NUMBERS
A3D uses the clients specific nomenclature which allows us to produce 2D deliverables such as orthos and isos which tie into existing management systems.
EXPORT FABRICATION ISOS
The 3D models we produce have a list of outputs, including fabrication isos, Bill of Materials, Cut Piece and Weld lists. Also PCF files which can later be used for stress analysis.

Does A3D supply stress analysis?
A3D are proud to have established point cloud technologies, now recognised as the preferred method for accurately capturing measured site data in using 3D laser scanning instruments. Traditional methods being time consuming and subject to error
Piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) are considered a fundamental requirement for companies operating a process operation. P&IDs play a significant role in the maintenance and modification of the process that it describes and should be maintained
The A3D Tank analysis reports deliver critical information with a level of detail not previously achieved using traditional methods. since we are using advanced 3d laser scanners with out need for temporary access platforms, thus technology is a market leading competitively priced alternative..
