​​D1.5: Techniques, protocols, applications for 3D scanning​


This report gives an overview of the pilot activities of the demonstration tools to be used within P2ENDURE. The main focus is on the part of 3D building scanning technology, describing: the 3D scanning procedure, the types of 3D laser scanning in the building industry, and the scanning process in relation to its connection with Building Information Modelling (BIM). In this context, a short brief of the BIM is given, next to the application descriptions of 3D laser scanning and its overall benefits portrait.

Three real demo cases on 3D laser scanning are being performed by P2ENDURE partners in Warsaw (Poland), Gdynia (Poland), and Palmanova (Italy). Focus3D FARO 3D laser scanner is the main scanning technology used within these activities, while its general characteristics and set-up requirements are presented in this report. Next to the 3D laser scanning method, the description of the Photogrammetry method is included in this report. A case study was carried out through a synergy with H2020 project MORE-CONNECT; this presents a comparison between Photogrammetry method and 3D laser scanning method.

Finally, a brief on-site demo case study of Robot-At-Work is documented. The case study is about 3D printing and wall rendering in the building industry, performed by the robot on-site. Robot-At-Work is a company that provides on-site robotic solutions for the construction industry. The company is one of the P2ENDURE stakeholders.
