    How 3D laser scanning technology brings new opportunities in ship refitting and conversion

    The key to competitive tendering lies in being able to capture the ‘as-operating’ vessel into the 3D design environment quickly, accurately and economically.

    Discover how laser technology can add value to your business.

    Topics covered include:

    • Capturing the as-operating condition
      'Because laser scanning is so quick and non-intrusive, there is often no need to wait until the vessel is in dry dock to perform the survey. It can take place well in advance of the scheduled refit.'
    • Combining reality and design
      'Refit work can begin immediately and be carried out quickly, with little or no rework required, because the new items will have been accurately checked against the ‘as-is’ vessel.'
    • Reverse engineering
      'AVEVA Laser Modeller™ enables pipes or structural elements captured in the point cloud to be identified and interactively converted into intelligent 3D model objects with associated attributes.'
    • Creating the design in AVEVA Marine
      'Now the designer can complete the design by integrating existing and new objects, running collision detections, and creating drawings and other production deliverables.'
    • Naval considerations
      'Smaller national fleets suffer a greater loss of effectiveness when a single vessel is out of service. There is therefore a strong case for making laser surveying of an entire vessel an integral aspect of its lifecycle management.'

    AVEVA's Laser Technology Solutions:

    AVEVA Laser Modeller

    AVEVA Laser Modeller uses 3D laser scan surveys to reverse-engineer intelligent, accurate as-built 3D plant models in PDMS, rapidly and at low cost. It gives the prospect of affordable intelligent models for all Owner Operators. It semi-automatically selects the appropriate intelligent items from the PDMS catalogue, including piping, steelwork and equipment.

    AVEVA Laser Model Interface

    AVEVA Laser Model Interface brings the real world into AVEVA Plant or AVEVA Marine by fusing datacentric 3D design with high-definition laser scan surveys. Once captured, 3D survey data can be shared and exploited across an entire AVEVA project.

    AVEVA NET IntelliLaser

    Turning 3D laser survey data into a rich data source for plant management, AVEVA NET IntelliLaser is a unique web-based product that automatically associates 3D laser scan data with the corresponding 3D plant design model and all its associated information.

    AVEVA NET IntelliLaser is based on AVEVA NET and uses LFM Software's NetView technology.

    LFM Server

    LFM Server allows users to work with pre-registered 3D laser scan data. Using InfiniteCore technology you can compile point cloud databases from an unlimited number of scans, clash detect as-built data against a proposed design, and interface with 3D design solutions from AVEVA or other leading vendors. An integral solution for any Brownfield project.

    LFM Modeller

    With LFM Modeller, you can rapidly convert high-definition scan data into intelligent 3D models and export them into a number of 3D CAD systems.

    (Note: For use purely with AVEVA PDMS, because of the need for intelligent deliverables we recommend the use of AVEVA Laser Modeller in preference to LFM Modeller.)

    LFM NetView

    LFM NetView is a web-based laser scan viewing application which enables secure access to LFM Server databases across an entire enterprise, via the Internet. It allows access to projects by an unlimited number of users, and can be provided as a hosting service. LFM NetView is also available in stand-alone mode.
