SPECIALISTS IN THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY

USING MODERN 3D SCANNING TECHNOLOGY MAPPING YOUR SITE FOR ANALYSIS, MODELING AND DOCUMENTATION

LEARN MORE

In just four years, Advanced 3D Laser Solutions has quickly established itself with a strong client base in the UK and Europe. After Establishing a strong client base in the UK, the team set its sights on Europe, particularly  in the Netherlands, as its offered new opportunities  to  expand the company’s offering.

 

api570 ndt inspection Drawings 

From the huge amount of data captured by our 3D laser instruments, ALS have the range of processing software that allows us to quickly and accurately model out our 3D Plant Models. For processes ALS use Autodesk Plant 3D, which allows us to model out specific pipework
from all recognised piping catalogues along with specialty specifications ALS download from suppliers. Once ALS have created your 3D model, we can automatically export a full range of piping isometrics, fully dimensioned and with a full list of bill of materials as required.

Isometrics are all customised around our client’s standards including drawing sizes and borders and can be tailoured to align with NDT inspectors data entry fields.

Alternatively, ALS can offer piping orthographics, a 2D snapshot from the 3D model that holds more information including surrounding features to add clarity. The greatest benefit though, is that we can reduce to around 10-20% , the total number of piping isometrics required to cover any process

 you will be left with a fully functioning 3D model, which can later be used for projects clash detection and asset / document management integration.

pOINT CLOUD EXAMPLE

The Point cloud is used to create a 3D spec-driven model, from the model we can then produce orthographics and other forms of 2D docmentation depending upon clients request.

THE BENEFITS

faster

Obtaining NDT documents is alot easier when extracting them from a 3D model traditional methods would have taken a lot of time to walk the lines to gather the data.

LESS PAPERWORK 

Orthographic’s are gaining popularity recently with our clients and are taking over isometric drawings as it leaves the client with a 2D representation of the 3D model, they’re easier to use and reduce the amount of files needed compared to isometrics. 

direct  link

The inspection drawings will relate to the 3D model so any changes made out on site can be made to the model, which will then update the NDT drawings. Improving the clients sites documents consistency.

PRE-pLANNING 

AlS will complete pre-planning in order to determine the most efficient and therefore, cost effective solution.

RISK & METHOD STATEMENTS 

ALS recognise that any form of site work on an operating site must be subject of both RAMS along with planning documents in order to expedite an efficient and safe survey.

3D Laser scan 

Recognised as the referred method for accurately capturing measured site data in using 3D laser scanning instruments. Traditional methods being time consuming  and subject to error.

register scan data  

Once ALS has been out on site with the 3D Laser Scanners we then process the scan using faro scene software.

AUTO PIPEWORK RECOGNITION 

ALS uses pipework recognition software to pick out the pipework from the point cloud data this save valuable time modelling.

STEEL WORK EXTRAPOLATION 

ALS can provide steel work models this can aid clients in the situation where they need  feed a new line through the site. ALS offer clash detection services.

ADD PIPING COMPONENTS

Auto Cad Plant 3D has a catalogue of spec driven components which replicate onsite assets which can be given individual numbers which correspond with asset management systems. 

ADD LINE NUMBERS

ALS uses the clients specific nomenclature which allows us to produce 2D deliverables  such as orthos and isos which tie into existing management systems.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do<br /> isometrics come from the point cloud?

No the isometrics are converted from a model, Once you have a model you are able to obtain isometrics, Orthographics ETC. 

Can you use our borders and symbols?

We can use your borders and symbols what ever work we carry out will be consistent whether we use ALS symbols or a particular clients.  

Should<br /> I use isometrics or Orthographics?

Orthographics are easier for operators to read and offer the same information. 

Can<br /> your isos show weld lines?

LASER SCANNING

ALS are proud to have established point cloud technologies, now recognised as the preferred method for accurately capturing measured site data in using 3D laser scanning instruments. Traditional methods being time consuming and subject to error

3D MODELLING

The vast engineering experience from over 30 years working within process industries has resulted in ALS now leading in the production of ‘brown field’ technical process models. ALS recognised the importance of our skilled 3D laser surveyors site familiarity.

TANK ANALYSIS 

The ALS Tank analysis reports deliver critical information with a level of detail not previously achieved using traditional methods. since we are using advanced 3d laser scanners with out need for temporary access platforms, thus technology is a market leading competitively priced alternative..
