3D Scanning

A 3D scan of a building generates a point-cloud model that can be used to verify all dimensions of a building. EWS Texas can scan your building and create a model for use in fabrication and coordination between trades.

How it Works

EWS Texas is one of the few fabricators in the country that uses this scanning equipment and innovative process in exterior wall panel systems. Our field team captures point clouds from millions of beams of laser data using the Leica Geosystems Scan Station, which composes a 3D model of the structure.

This process gives us many advantages including:


Each measurement is extremely accurate, enabling us to create a very detailed 3D model of the actual structure, without relying solely on the architectural drawings.


The millions of laser points captured in each scan provide the most intricate details of the structure giving our engineering team an “on-site” view throughout the drafting and fabrication process. This minimizes human error in measuring, thereby reducing time lost from inaccuracies and remakes.


A full field view is possible at a maximum distance of 300m, which enables laser data to be captured from safe and controlled locations.
