Heritage Building Restoration

Nimble Systems approached us looking for assistance with facade restoration of a heritage building that was built in 1983. A portion of the work could not be performed using traditional brick repair methods. They needed to accurately recreate an ornate concrete tile to replace a cracked and broken portion on the heritage building that was built in 1893

We scanned a portion of the brickwork that was still intact which allowed us to reverse engineer a 3D model. An exact reproduction panel was then created using CNC machining.

Tigh Na Mara Resort

Construction company, TS Williams Construction, approached us with a complex and difficult measurement task that couldn’t be performed using traditional methods. They needed to perform extensive renovation work on a beautiful oceanfront lodging that was heavily weathered and exposed to the elements.

Faced with unreliable drawings on the 50 suite log structure, our client asked us to provide high accuracy CAD elevations and CAD site plan. Complicating the measurement task was the heavy vegetation and cliff on the rear face of the building.

After exensive scanning of the complete exterior, we created accurate 2D CAD Elevations and CAD site plan.

3D scan and model of fishing vessel Island Joye

We were approached by Ocean Pacific Marine to perform a 3D laser scan of a fishing vessel that ran aground. There had been damage to the hull and issues with the keel. Surface and Edge 3D undertook scanning of the complete hull as well as decks and pilot house. 

Using the laser scan data, a highly accurate as-built 3D model was created by our partners at 3D Reverse Engineering. With the as-built model in hand, Naval Architects at Polar Design Sales were able to better assess the damage and also perform a stability analysis. 

3D Scan of yacht Knot Accountable

We were approached by Ocean Pacific Marine regarding a client wanting to do a refit of his yacht. The refit included re-configuring the aft deck as well as adding an upper pilot house.

Since no accurate drawings were available, Surface & Edge 3D laser scanned the hull, deck and existing bridge.

Using the laser scan data, an as-built 3D model was created by our partners at 3D Reverse Engineering.

Using the as-built 3D model as the base, the Naval Architects at Polar Design Sales created a new design model and performed stability analysis.

From the new design model, cut files were created for automated prefabrication work. This facilitated quick assembly in the shipyard and significant cost savings.
