3D Scanning

The 3D scanning systems market research report delivers current market analysis and technology forecast. The study is available in multiple editions including worldwide, all regions, and most major countries.

​​​Time and Cost-Efficient 3D Scanning Technology Gains Market Traction

ARC Advisory Group’s research on 3D scanning shows that the technology offers a multitude of advantages over conventional survey and measurement practices. 3D scanning helps in the creation of accurate as-built models for building information modeling (BIM). 3D scans are essential for checking proposed designs against existing site conditions and comparing construction progress with original design plans. The adoption of this technology by EPCs has resulted in an improvement to the overall design/build/operate/maintain lifecycle for plants and buildings. This technology positively impacts project lifecycle and workflow in terms of time, cost, and construction efficiency.

3D Scanning Market Strategic Issues

In addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the 3D scanning systems market research report provides detailed, quantitative current market data and addresses key strategic issues as follows.

3D Scanners Provide Comprehensive and Fast Quality Control    

3D scanners can check on the composition of the material and the volume of the object.

The Design Prototype Process Is Faster    

3D scanners can reduce the number of prototype cycles necessary during the design and production process.

3D Scanners Provide a High Level of Accuracy    

3D scanners help in ensuring that measurements are correct the first time so that less work is needed to complete steps in both design and production stage.

Non-Contact Diagnosis    

3D scanners use optical-based technology; there is no need for the scanner to touch the object.  This is helpful in seeking to measure fragile and small features that may be damaged or distorted when touched.

Ability to Remanufacture Parts without CAD    

During remanufacturing, a part originated before computer-aided design (CAD) software was available; 3D scanners make it possible to produce accurate reproductions.  Scanners can be used to compare the newly created prototype to the scan of the old part to check the accuracy.

Cost-Effective Solution    

Less time and labor being spent during the measurement acquisition and design iteration steps make 3D laser scanning substantially more cost-effective than most other measuring technologies.

Save Time in the Design Stage of Product or Structure    

Scanners can get into every nook of the new and existing product, then provide precise dimension of the space where a new part will fit an existing equipment.

Enhance Safety of Workers    

Worker safety is the primary concern for construction sites, and 3D laser scanning can improve on this aspect of surveying.  With the help of portable 3D laser scanners, surveyors can record accurate measurement of the structure from distance up to several hundred meters.
