Dynamic 3D Solutions Performs 3D Laser Scan on Grain Processing Facility

Dynamic 3D Solutions, LLC (D3DS) recently performed a 3D laser scan on a processing facility in Texas for a global market leader. This project presented some unique challenges due to the inherent nature of grain handling. The vibrating equipment and dust made it difficult to capture the existing condition. We were able to overlap the scans sufficiently and over sample each scan location to capture all relevant equipment and structure to make our client's project a success.
