Solution to rapidly and cost-effectively transform laser scan data into intelligent, as-built 3D plant models released
Manchester, UK – 16 April 2012: AVEVA (LSE:AVV), has today announced the commercial release of a brand new product in its AVEVA Plant portfolio, AVEVA Laser Modeller, a 3D laser scanning software solution that can reduce brownfield facility intelligent 3D modelling time by up to 50%. Key customers have over the past 12 months played an integral role in the development and testing process of this new product.
Thanks to AVEVA Laser Modeller, traditional costly techniques for converting laser scan data into an intelligent 3D model are now obsolete, commented Bruce Douglas, Senior VP Marketing & Product Strategy, AVEVA. In the past, investment in the creation of 3D models was hard to justify. AVEVA Laser Modeller changes the fundamental ground rules by adding automation to most aspects of the modelling process, producing a fully intelligent 3D model in a fraction of the time and cost previously required.
Working with key customers on real projects has proved that Owner Operators can save up to 50% of effort in producing the intelligent model. This reduces the lead time on large scale modelling of a brownfield facility and allows large scale re-engineering of assets and upgrade and revamp projects to take place significantly quicker leading to the efficient long-term management of complex physical assets.
AVEVA Laser Modeller rapidly and cost-effectively transforms laser scan data into intelligent, as-built 3D PDMS models, added Gary Farrow, VP, LFM Software. Accepting laser scan data from all laser scanning hardware vendors, AVEVA Laser Modeller is completely neutral and demonstrates our commitment to interoperability. It is unique in the marketplace as it removes the need to produce dumb geometric models.
