3D Laser Scanning Learning Center
Streamline Your As-Built Data Capture.
Stay Under Budget and On-Time.
It's what you need...
...and Reality Capture is the solution.
Find out how to leverage the latest technology in laser scanning to capture a full digital representation, or DIGITAL TWIN, of any environment so you can document, model and analyze that environment with speed and precision.
- Capture highly accurate point clouds.
- Generate 3D as-built models and meshes.
- Retro-fit design from as-built.
- Compare as-built vs design.
- BIM modelling.
- Clash detection.
- Tank inspection to API standards.
- Floor flatness and floor levelness to ASTM standards.
- Automated 2D line work.
- Take precise measurements, and much more.
We have put together instructional videos on full field to finish workflows using Leica Geosystems laser scanning hardware including the RTC360, BLK360, P-series laser scanners, along with Cyclone Register 360, Cyclone 3DR, and Cloudworx software. All videos can be found below, scroll down.
We will be covering key benefits, field workflows, as well as office workflows to produce a multitude of deliverables from point cloud data. Teaching you how to easily manage the workflow, our goal is to become your go-to resource in the fast-growing world of reality capture.
Of course I'm always available to talk in person, if you're specific needs aren't addressed in our videos, or you'd like to discuss taking the next step towards a purchase. I'd love to hear from you. We are your dedicated Leica Geosystems laser scanning dealer, supplying and supporting clients all across Canada.

|Quickly produce 2D linework from your point cloud data using the automated best fit line tools in Cloudworx.|
|Easily run FF/FL analysis on your data to ASTM 1155E standards. Produce a professional PDF report with reported test values, elevation gradient and cross-section views.|
|Demonstrating the Best Fit Pipe Modeling tools in Cloudworx to quickly extract centerline, cyclinders and annotations from pipes in your point cloud data.|
|Using the Clash Detection tool in Cloudworx, automatically run interference checks on new models against as-built point clouds, manage verification data and export reports.|
Leica Cyclone 3DR
Cyclone 3DR offers full-scale point cloud management with automated point cloud analysis and modelling into one simple workflow-based software with tailored tools for the surveying, construction and inspection fields. Where most software will focus on a single workflow to create a specialised deliverable, Cyclone 3DR includes a range of adaptable tools for inspection and meshing that can be leveraged to create an assortment of 3D deliverables and reports.
