3D laser imagery is not magical. Behind the mirrors (found in the laser probe) there is a lot of know-how and experience that makes the laser imagery experience seem so easy.
A 3D laser imaging system is a non-contact, non-destructive technology that digitally captures the shape of physical objects using a laser beam. Day and night vision is possible thanks to the laser illumination. Moreover, it allows seeing in high resolution through bad weather conditions (rain, fog, haze, snow). This technique creates “3D point clouds” of data from the surface of an object. Laser imagery is the fastest, most accurate, and automated way to acquire 3D digital data for reverse engineering even through adverse meteorological conditions (low visibility).
