3D Laser



recap chchBoys terminal

Laser scanning is technology that enables us to measure and capture built and natural environments in 3D. It works by sending out millions of laser pulses per second to produce what is called a point cloud. High Dynamic Range (HDR) photos are then taken from the scanner, which colourises the points to create a vibrant point cloud, rich in detail.

What are typical applications?

Laser scanning can be used in any application that requires a high level of detail. At Envivo, we produce point clouds to create 3D models of plantrooms, capture heritage sites for earthquake strengthening and generate 3D meshes of compounds to determine volumetric information.

What are the benefits?

  • Cost effective
  • Minimise risk
  • Fast and accurate
  • High level of detail
  • Reduces the need for site visits
  • Imports directly into most CAD and modelling software

Why laser scanning?

Laser scanning technology provides a high level of detail compared with conventional survey methods. It literally measures the whole site to millimetre accuracy. This is then displayed on your desktop where you can navigate in 3D and view each scan position in full HDR photography.

Envivo is experienced in all fields of scan capture, ranging from small residential dwellings to large complex plant rooms. Our experienced surveyors and specialist equipment travel a lot across the country on a variety of exciting projects. We are trusted to work on large projects including Auckland International Airport, OI Glass, NZ Oil Services, Christchurch Airport, Fonterra and the New Zealand Navy.

Why Envivo?

We have developed a robust scanning technique, with the aid of quality Leica instrumentation and software. Our point clouds are accurate and correct, controlled by robust survey control. Our surveyors are very experienced and enjoy working on projects that require critical thinking.

We want to offer the best survey capture solution for you. Whatever your project is, Envivo is excited to work with you, to provide quality information, that lays a solid foundation for your design. Contact our team today. We look forward to working with you.

3D Modelling

3D modelling is the process of creating a digital three-dimensional representation of the physical world. This is achieved by using specialised software to transform point cloud data into intelligent objects. The delivered product is compatible with industry standard software packages and integrates seamlessly with any BIM project. Our models are spatially accurate and to a level of detail that suits your project needs and budget.

 3D Meshing

A 3D mesh is a digital surface model made up of a collection of vertices, edges and faces that defines the shape of a polyhedral object. A mesh is typically used when the surface or object is irregular in nature. A mesh can be delivered in very low or high detail, but it is important for the end user to define the level of detail required. The smaller the triangle, the denser the model, but the larger the file.
