Project Description

LASER SCAN TO 3D MODEL

THE BRIEF

To create a highly accurate model of a storage tank in order to be able to see any deformations, side wall bulges, rim seal gaps or other maintenance and integrity issues.

READY TO TALK?

APPROACH

IKM used the point cloud data to accurately model the tank in 3D.  Integrating the floor scans, roof scans and side wall scans allowed us to use as-built drawings to compare any life-cycle deformations or integrity issues.

OUTCOME

A full 3D model was created and utilised for a number of purposes:

  • Training -to illustrate to people what to look for when inspecting a storage tank
  • VR – an immersive application was built to allow users to virtually interrogate the data without having to be onsite
  • Collaboration – teams could then spend time looking at the defects and collaborate on the best approach to creating a cost effective solution
