Restoring Notre-Dame with Laser Scanning Technology

On the 20th of April, an urgent operation ‘Commando’ was led by Art Graphique et Patrimoine who collected data of Notre-Dame and it’s damaged parts. The AGP team finished one week’s worth of work in just one day. During operation ‘Commando’ around 30 to 40 milliard points were captured. The areas which were difficult to access were captured with a drone using photogrammetry. This will form the base of the investigation and reconstruction of the Notre-Dame.

Whitepaper: A Renovation Study in Four Acts

Inspired by Matthias Plieassning, a Brooklyn, N.Y. artist, Trahan Architects team developed a concept for the swooping, swirling wood-threaded panels to be installed. The installation of the unique design started with a challenge as there were no templates to follow. The CWKA shortly implemented the use of the FARO Focus Laser Scanner and the FARO TracerSI Laser Projector into their workflow. Keller explains, “Documenting existing conditions with a high degree of resolution and tolerance allows us to better manage project risk.”

Case Study: Improving Quality and Production Rates with a Laser Tracker

To accommodate Cincinnati’s measurement volume, traditional tools such as dial indicators and slab-mounted CMMs turned out to be pretty limited in measuring larger parts. This became a significant problem as the measuring option was insufficient for Cincinnati’s needs. To help keep pace with the changing face of manufacturing, Cincinnati invested in a FARO® Vantageᴱ Laser Tracker system. The system improves quality control, reduces waste in production processes, and facilitates their continuous improvement efforts.
