A glimpse into our laser scanning process. The goal of this project was to scan and determine the 3d surface area of the gray retaining wall sprayed with shotcrete for stabilization. Please click and drag the sliding bars to view more of either image.

RTR scanned from several locations including a 3rd floor window in the building under construction. What may appear as missing data is actually due to the construction equipment moving as we scanned.
AutoDesk ReCap to Civil 3D
We edited out all but the retaining wall in ReCap to eliminate further editing in Civil 3D since our goal was the surface area of the wall. We then built a 3d mesh from the edited point cloud in Civil 3D which gave us the final surface area. Finally, we imported the full point cloud and created a few different displays of the 3d mesh.
