Cambridge University New Museums 3D Modelling
Cambridge University New Museums 3D Modelling Summary:
In 2012 the Severn Partnership were asked to scan Cambridge University’s new museums site. This covers an area approximately 1km². Its purpose was to allow for the staged extraction of CAD elevations through the scanned site.
This archive of laser scanned buildings was then extended to enable creation of a block outline 3D street model of the building within the site. This would then be used for future planning procedures, ongoing development of the site and improved site awareness.
Why scan it? – Laser scanning enables rapid site data capture of complex 3D geometry – ‘capturing reality’. With individual point accuracies of +/-3mm, we are also able to vary the level of detail to which we model. Starting simple with block outlines and adding complexity should the need arise later in the project.
Laser scanning also enables us to check the accuracy and completeness of our model directly against the source point cloud – giving us a rolling quality check on our work.
