For people who think about buying a 3D laser scanner, there’s uncertainty about how exactly scanning works, how long scanning projects take, and how they can be calculated in terms of time and money.
Furthermore, professionals face the problem of having to calculate the personnel required not only for the scanning but also the subsequent data preparation (registration, modelling, etc.), a necessity that must be considered, especially when applying for construction projects or formulating offers.
For experienced users, it’s adequate to have 2D plans or photographs of the scan site. However, such plans are regularly lacking or it’s a mandatory step in the process.
