Session Information

Technology related to 3D Laser Scanning is now available at an affordable cost for small to medium sized engineering firms. Software tools have improved the ability to integrate multiple scans into a single point cloud file, as well as integrate point cloud data and associated photographic images into 3D CAD design models. This paper will provide an overview of 3D Laser scanning hardware, software and techniques and their application to shipbuilding and repair. The authors will use work recently performed on the SS UNITED STATES as a framework to illustrate the application of 3D laser scanning in an engineering and design environment.
