How Much Accuracy is Enough?

Every job is different. And a variety of different inputs and constraints dictate the tolerances for a particular scope within a particular project. The possibilities are endless. But often times, users get caught up looking at the accuracy of a particular instrument, total station, or scanning solution and see that as a gating item [...]

Scanning as a Snapshot

In numerous previous posts, BuildingPoint has discussed the value of laser scanning to deliver a truly accurate “snapshot” of a project. Typically, this capability is discussed within the scope of an entire project or proposed project. But it’s also important to remember that these powerful capabilities can be delivered within a smaller scope. Problem [...]

How to use BIM to its full potential

Most structural steel companies aren’t using BIM to its full potential. Are you one of them? 3D models were first used to make drawing production easier, but these days, information rich models are the key to better productivity throughout intelligent steel fabrication. However, many of the benefits of building information modelling remain untapped Using [...]
