According to a recent market research study conducted by Market Reports Hub, the 3D Scanner market size is expected to grow, in terms of value, from $3.41 Billion in 2015 to $5.90 Billion by 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.6% between the same time period.

The largest gain in popularity can be attributed to portable CMM-based 3D scanners because of the convenience and wealth of possibilities they afford for scanning tight spaces with a high rate of accuracy when applied to conventional and non-conventional scan jobs. Portable CMM-based scanners are categorized into handheld and articulated arm CMM. Expected to grow at the highest rate in the portable CMM category are the handheld 3D scanners. 

What is 3D Laser Scanning?

3D Laser Scanning is the process of collecting data points of physical objects using a line of laser light and transforming them into point clouds of data from the surface of said object. The scanner emits the laser light over its full field of view. When the laser light touches an object it then reflects back the light towards the scanner, sending the scanner x-y-z coordinates and information about every surrounding point allowing for a three-dimensional cloud of points to be gathered. 

This point cloud information can be saved and rendered in various design softwares, allowing for the creation of 2D CAD renderings, and the x-y-z coordinates allow for the creation of a 3D model. 3D scanners can improve the time of production operations, while reducing costs and redundancy of projects, allowing for less time needed for project timelines and meeting deadlines which results in a more efficient and cost-effective project for every stakeholder involved. 


Why Use 3D Laser Scanning?

There are a number of practical real-world applications for 3D Laser Scanning as it pertains to the AEC industry. 3D Laser Scanning services allow for improved Building Information Modeling (BIM) solutions, such as procuring As-Built information for better communication, eliminating the need for manual field measurements, and shortening of project lifecycles. 


The cost of scanning services has decreased to now be competitive with manual measurement methods, thanks largely to the advancements in hardware and software solutions. Cost along with the increasing number of analytical options available thru 3D Laser Scanning is making it an increasingly attractive option to conduct detailed surveying of building structures.

UCT 2016
Repro Products is excited to announce that we will be exhibiting at the Underground Construction Technology International Conference & Exhibition in Atlanta on February 3rd – 4th. UCT is the premier event in the United States focusing on the total underground pipeline infrastructure. For over 21 years, UCT has been the meeting place for business professionals involved in maintaining the underground utility pipe infrastructure.
Individuals representing water, sewer, gas, telecom and electric rely on UCT to learn about the latest techniques used in trenchless, open cut, new construction and pipe rehabilitation. Repro Products is proud to say that we have served this vibrant and innovative community since 1979 and we are eager to network with industry experts and discuss the implications of large format printing on the construction community.
UCT has so much to offer. In order to help you gain the most out of your time this year, we thought we would provide our top 5 tips for a successful #UCT2016:
  1. Register: UCT is fast approaching, but it is not too late to attend this premier industry trade show. Register Here to make sure you don’t miss out!
  2. Plan: Visit the Who’s Attending page to see who is attending and make a plan to visit booths, visit exhibits and take an opportunity to rub elbows with some industry movers and shakers.
  3. Practice: Practice your elevator pitch and have plenty of business cards on hand. With so many heavy-hitters in one room, you don’t want to miss out on any opportunities to build your business and your network.
  4. Learn: Featuring 90 Information-Packed Sessions, UCT is a great opportunity to collect continuing education units. This dynamic educational program will help you understand the new technologies and products displayed in the exhibit hall and stay on top of the latest safety, regulatory and operational issues that are impacting the way you do business. UCT’s primary program (Feb. 3-4) qualifies for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and Professional Development Hours (PDHs) granted by the University of Texas at Arlington.
  5. Earn: Make sure to visit Repro Products in booth #904 to learn more about all of the exciting new products and offerings that have come from the Wide Format Printing industry. We will also be offering special show pricing on the HP T3500. 

 

We look forward to seeing you at the Georgia World Congress Center on February 3rd & 4th!
