Yacht laser scanning for fast and accurate retrofit

3D Laser scanning is truly revolutionizing the yacht building industry by increasing quality and efficiency for a range of stakeholders. From planning to building and furnishing, laser scanning provides a reliable solution when it has to be right.

Scanphase collaborates with naval companies and field specialists and offers high quality services for shipping companies in all European ports (Portugal, France, Italy, Spain, Malta, Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Turkey, ...), Spanish ports (Valencia, Algeciras, Barcelona, Las Palmas, Bilbao, Santander, Tarragona, El Ferrol, Cartagena, Avilés ...) and North Africa.

3D Laser scanning is truly revolutionizing the yacht building industry by increasing quality and efficiency for a range of stakeholders. From planning to building and furnishing, laser scanning provides a reliable solution when it has to be right.

By their very nature ships are generally expensive to transport for scanning. Our 3D engineers sets up equipment on-site and have the ability to move between rooms and then join scans together to create a design layout to high accuracy in 3D interior space is possible. Coupled with existing external ship design, creates a cohesive whole. colorized 3D point cloud scans and panoramic images allows to see the yacht data in ways previously not possible. It is important to understand that a 3D scan is the first part of the Computer Aided Design (CAD) journey.

The main benefit of yacht 3D laser scanning ahead of a refit is having accurate data during the redesign phase, which will mean that everything designed will work on the production phase. It also allows jobs to be decentralized, rather than doing all works on site with limited space and resources. It can be used for steelworks, railings, machinery spaces, interior spaces, furniture, ceiling panels, windscreens and almost anything else.

The use of a 3D laser scanner is unique in the yacht building industry. It is important to have a very detailed design of the ship because in order to create most interior drawings in 3D. Our 3D laser scanner is able to map out the ship with millimeter accuracy. The scanner provides us the best basis possible to create a detailed interior drawing.

3D scanning is a hugely skilled job, with very precise setup required for accurate results. Our equipment’s are portable, so the scan can be carried out wherever the boat lies, but the biggest effort is back in the office after the scan. Post processing is critical to obtaining a precise image and must be done by a professional.

Scanphase uses long-range Faro Focus scanners capable of an accuracy down to 1mm from a distance up to 330m. The Faro Focus is able to measure nearly a million points every second.

When a boat is out of the water for maintenance, it is not generating revenue. That’s why a quick turnaround is important. If it is needed to measure the hull to provide drawings to a naval architect, 3d laser scanning can accomplish the task quickly and easily, minimizing additional down time.

Yacht 3D Laser scanning and modelling 

3D Laser Scanning / Hull scanning

 

Scanphase (3D laser scanning / CAD modeling) capture and deliver, very quickly, the complex geometries and shapes of boat hulls.

Specifically, 3D Laser Scanning can be performed for the definition of possible deflections of the hull as also to inspect every stage of the erection process for deviations from the design. Also, 3D Laser Scanner can survey complex surfaces as also unapproachable and destroyed areas for claiming and redesign. The great point sampling with 1.000.000 points per second can ensure the detailed and quick stay on the field. Any type of ship, from a sailing boat to a tanker and bulk carrier, in any place and in any time, can be surveyed.

The final unified and dense point cloud is the proper initial spatial information for the extraction of any kind of deliverables from naval lines (waterlines, buttocks and sections) to a 3D reconstructed ship geometry (modeling) in any compatible CAD format.

Scanning ship hull for major modification:

  • Capturing of complex and detailed surfaces.

  • Extraction of all possible geometrical information (dimensions, angles).

  • Faster repair times.

  • As built compatible data for CAD softwares for any naval designing department - office.

  • Accuracy with the true ship geometries.

  • Direct comparison with design plans.

  • Minimization of construction delays
