How 3D Scanning Saves Time & Money
Traditional measuring and modeling methods charge a lower hourly rate, leading many to believe that it is the cheaper option. However, manual measuring and modelling requires much more time, as represented in this example. It took a labourer 80 disruptive, on-site hours, with a further 20 hours of off-site processing time. 3D modelling required only 4 hours of on-site scanning, with an additional 2 hours of off-site processing time. It’s this time-saving efficiency that makes 3D scanning the cheaper and more accurate solution.
|Manual Measuring||3D Scanning|
|Low hourly cost offset by amount of hours||High hourly cost offset by less required hours|
|Low Resolution||High Resolution|
|Time consuming||Quick and efficient|
|±13mm and vulnerable to human error||±3mm accuracy|
|Disruptive repeat visits often needed to gather required data||No repeat visits needed|
|Requires extra processing time to convert from paper to digital format||The entire process is digital, requiring less processing time|
3D scanning saves businesses money because it is more accurate and more efficient. The time required to scan and model a project is often less than a tenth of the time it would take to measure manually. This time-savings offsets the higher hourly rate of 3D scanning, giving businesses more dependable data in less time and at a lower cost.
