Fundamentals of 3D Technologies: Selecting 3D Technologies for Reality Capture
The Value of 3D Capture for the Digitalization of the Physical Asset
Digitalization is fast becoming a requirement for most asset owners that are starting to mandate a digital record of everything that comprises the physical asset. The common phrase used to describe the digital asset is the “Digital Twin”. Technology advancements in digitalization has made this an achievable goal; however, the work processes that these technologies enable have not progressed at the same pace, and in some instances, they have regressed. One case in point is the use of dimensional technologies, which is used for documenting as-is conditions, dimensional verification and inspection, and dimensional layout. The objective of this presentation is to shed light on the value proposition of using dimensional technologies coupled with well-defined work processes to achieve a cost-effective and accurate digital twin of the physical asset.
