Providing a 3D Survey of Dining Car #1663

Azure Green Consultants completed a 3d Building Survey of our Dining Car yesterday using a FARO Focus 3d X330 Laser Scanner. The laser scanner creates a point cloud consisting of billions of individual measurements captured from multiple positions which are then combined to create a 3d representation of the complete structure. Everything you see in the video can be measured and imported into CAD or 3d Modeling software packages. We will be posting a clip for everyone to see once the data has been processed. It is an amazing tool and one that I think you will find amazing to watch.  The link I am providing here today is a survey Azure Green performed for the popular Meeker Mansion in Puyallup, Washington. (To enhance your viewing experience, be sure to watch the video in HD using the settings in the lower right hand corner of the video)
