USING MODERN 3D SCANNING TECHNOLOGY MAPPING YOUR SITE FOR ANALYSIS, MODELING AND DOCUMENTATION

LEARN MORE

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.

 

WEBSHARE  VIEW

 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. WEB SHARE 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 there 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.

Scan data  EXAMPLE

Using Webshare to record accurate measurements from your site scan files. This facility remains popular with clients saving considerable time and reducing exposure to sites. ALS use ‘Webshare’ to calculate tank storage pit bund volumes, calculating ‘dead-wood’ allowances and base slope angles, producing reports in a fraction of the time otherwise taken using traditional methods.

Scanning WALKTHROUGH

For the typical laser scan, the 3D laser scanner completes two phases. Phase 1 collecting
measured points, recording X, Y & Z location, point intensity and colour. Selectable Phase
2 captures 70 Megapixel high resolution pictures used by the ‘Webshare’ image.

This facility remains popular with clients
saving considerable time and reducing
exposure to sites. ALS use ‘Webshare’ to

ANNOTATIONS 

Aside to measurements, scan datafiles can
be used to add annotations. Equipment
tag numbers, facilities management
system identifiers or references to
vendor equipment. The annotation can
even contain ‘hyperlinks’ allowing direct
connection to vendor sites are indeed your
own asset management systems. Or simply
notes relating to previous maintenance or
repairs, handy for orientation and training.

DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT

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.

PRE-pLANNING 

AlS will complete pre-planning in order to determine the most efficient and therefore, cost effective solution.

RISK & METHOD STATEMENTS 

ALS 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 ALS has been out on site with the 3D Laser Scanners we then process the scan using faro scene software.

AUTO PIPEWORK RECOGNITION 

ALS uses pipework recognition software to pick out the pipework from the point cloud data this save valuable time modelling.

STEEL WORK EXTRAPOLATION 

ALS can provide steel work models this can aid clients in the situation where they need  feed a new line through the site. ALS 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

ALS uses the clients specific nomenclature which allows us to produce 2D deliverables  such as orthos and isos which tie into existing management systems.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I need specialist software or hardware?

Not at all, the webshare software can run of the basic of machines and the software is free to run; though there are paid for cloud versions

I use it for asset management?

You can tag the webshare and apply asset codes and links to urls etc, but we wouldn’t recommend it

I calculate bund volume?

Absolutely by using the birds-eye view you can take area measurements and by going into the individual scan positions your able to take a height measurement, speak to us about your bund requirements as we have software that allows us to calculate bund volumes a lot more accurately taking into account dead wood and bund floor height changes.

How accurate are the measurements?

The measurements can be as accurate as +/-2mm,

LASER SCANNING

ALS 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

3D MODELLING

The vast engineering experience from over 30 years working within process industries has resulted in ALS now leading in the production of ‘brown field’ technical process models. ALS recognised the importance of our skilled 3D laser surveyors site familiarity.

P&ID DRAWINGS

The ALS 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..
