We are excited to say that 3D laser scanners are changing the way Glosten approaches refit projects. Our 3D laser scanner develops color images that are as detailed as high-resolution digital pictures. The individual scanned images are ‘stitched’ together to form a full color 3D model of the compartment that can be used to obtain measurements. The scanned images are typically accurate to within a fraction of an inch.”
