Trimble’s advanced 3D scanning systems

Capture data quickly and safely with immense detail and accuracy.

Scan with Confidence

Scan with the confidence and produce results you can trust. Whether you’re doing a topographic survey, capturing as-builts, performing comprehensive data analysis, new construction or a renovation model, Trimble empowers quick and accurate scanning, registration and creation of comprehensive deliverables.

Key Benefits

Speed, Accuracy, and Consistency

3D laser scanning enables a fast and accurate means of collecting millions of measurable data points in seconds to provide pinpoint accuracy, every time.

Valuable Data for Design

Datasets are dimensionally accurate, measurable, and shareable, so you can eliminate any guesswork back at the office.

Works on Retrofits and New Builds

For detailed MEP installations, you need a high level of accuracy. If your project is complex, involves retrofits, or requires refurbishment, you can capture precise data over the full measurement range.

  • Watch in just under 2 minutes

A Versatile Scanning Portfolio

Many industries depend on 3D laser scanning to manage complex projects, enabling them to get jobs done quickly and accurately. The challenges of 3D are clear. Each project requires the right tools—whether you’re delivering scan data of as-built conditions, performing comprehensive data analysis, or creating a renovation model based on an existing structure. Trimble has developed the 3D scanning solutions you can trust to meet these challenges and quickly capture, analyze, model and produce precise deliverables.
