Laser Scanning & 3D Modeling

Laser Scanning & 3D Modeling

In the event existing stonework needs to be replicated, there are a variety of methods we can use to provide information to the fabricator to duplicate existing profiles, configurations, ornamental detailing or art work. Field measuring, site templates and 3D laser scanning are used to provide the fabricator with the physical and digital formats necessary to reproduce any piece of stone.

Case study documenting the steps involved to create 3D models of stones to be replicated based on field survey and 3D scan data.  Video by Michael Fritz.

Yale University, Schwarzman Center

Laser scan of existing marble in Memorial Hall. Handicap ramp to be installed in this area. Scan was used as basis of design for replication of marble units required to restore wall features after ramp installation.

Laser scan of existing radial Tennessee Marble stairs in Rotunda. Scan was used as basis of design for replacement of curved marble treads/risers to match existing.

730 5th Avenue, The Crown Building – New York

Field survey and laser scanning of ornamental terra cotta units for replication.  3D model created from laser scan data will be used by fabricator for the replication of these elements as part of a new GFRC cornice.

Waldorf Astoria, New York

3D laser scan of pinnacles on the roof of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Scan was used as the basis of design for preparing as built condition drawings of the structures.

First Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia

Laser scan of damaged ornamental limestone floral capital. Laser scan was used as the basis for creating shop drawings and shop tickets to replicate the existing capital.
