Accurate Data for Better Modeling

RICK’s 3D Laser Scanning Department leverages state-of-art technology and expertise to provide clients exceptionally accurate virtual datasets and models. Our processes produce 2D or 3D CAD/Revit models that are accessible and useful for Building Information Modeling (BIM) and spatial coordination amongst project stakeholders (owners, architects, engineers, and contractors), allowing them to safely and efficiently test and verify design concepts without having to be on site.

Excellence Begins With Understanding Existing Conditions

Our 3D laser scanners collect millions of points-per-second to produce an extremely dense, accurate collection of individual measurements known as a “point cloud” – with a positional accuracy of 6mm. Our scans measure existing building interiors and exteriors, interstitial spaces, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, pipe networks, construction sites, bridges, historical sites, topography and more.

RICK offers a full suite of innovative 3D Laser Scanning services, including:

Reality Portal

RICK's Reality Portal is a single location for your project’s digital data deliverables, providing the project team a central, secured location for project content. The Portal consists of:

  • Project Navigator – an interactive index map allowing you to move around a project at any scale, turning on and off data layers of your project
  • 360° Photo Viewers – picture any location of your project
  • 3D Point Cloud Navigators –  fly through your project using common web browsers
  • File Sharing, File Syncing and File Collaboration Site – a common location for the project’s digital files

The Portal can grow and expand for your individual project or your entire facility. Typically the first deliverable will be our set of web-based reality viewers. No CADD software or intense training is required to visualize the built world through scanning.

TruView: 360° Panoramic Photo Viewer – TruView is an interactive 360° panoramic photo viewer, allowing planning level measurements from the perspective of each scan location. Think of it as your feet on the ground, not moving, and you are looking all around you. For a sample click here.

3D Point Cloud Navigator – Point Cloud Navigator is a 3D viewer enabling any user with a web browser to fly through, clip and measure portions of the point cloud with its high level of detail allowing you to visualize and study the project. For a sample click here.

Viewers are accessed via a single-sign on secure website. These hosted web applications may be used with any modern web browser, tablet or mobile device.
