AsBuilt of a Dust Collection System

The Challenge:

AsBuilt was contracted to capture the as-is conditions of a dust collection system in a wood products manufacturing millThe mill was preparing to replace the aging dust collection system and add new pick-up points to reduce dusting in the facilityThe problem was the lack of drawings for the old dust collection system and the surrounding areas. 

The Solution:

AsBuilt captured the existing dust collection system, including all the piping and pick up pointsIn the process of scanning the dust collection system, the surrounding area was captured, including conduit, piping, structural and equipment details.  The entire area scanned was converted to 3D model space, which was used for placing the new equipment and clash detection.
