What is the 3D Scanner?

We use the Leica ScanStation P40 – High-Definition 3D Laser Scanning Solution. This technology allows us to collect high-quality 3D data that is accurate and detailed, enabling us to custom fit our engineering designs to each individual project.

It also allows us to collect dimensional information with precision in less than ideal environmental conditions, without sacrificing clarity or efficiency during our information gathering process.

Accurate, cost-effective results that drive the solutions you need

In many of the industries we work in, there are often circumstances where we need to collect data on existing or brown field locations in order for new equipment or structures to be installed. Previous methods of data collection were ineffective, often costly, and resulted in unreliable and inaccurate results. 3D Scanner technology also allows us to provide architectural, general contracting, or home building firms with exact measurements of existing or new constructions to aid in developing accurate designs with minimal re-work. Contact us today to learn why Kova Engineering is one of the top 3D laser scanning companies in Saskatchewan.
