Truckee Meadows Waste Reclamation Facility - Nevada
Engineering teams working for the City of Sparks need accurate as-built documentation of specific piping systems for re-engineering of the existing piping. 3DIS was contracted to provide 3D laser scanning and deliver a 3D AutoCAD model of the specified areas within the treatment facility.
Laser scanning provided the Engineering team complete documentation of all piping, equipment and structure information of the entire area, even systems not included in the projects scope of work. The engineering team at Petty & Associates only required a specific piping system to be modeled in AutoCAD 3D. As represented in the pictures below, the team was able to visualize the 3D solids AutoCAD model and point-cloud in the same working environment.
As a result, specifying a selective modeling scope of work and utilizing the point-cloud in a CAD working environment, it saved the city thousands of dollars.
