Laser scanning is a non-contact technological process that digitally captures and documents the shape of rooms and objects using a laser light. The scanner uses the laser to create "point clouds". Point clouds are a cluster of dots that lay where the laser hits a surface (i.e. floor, wall, ceiling or object). Simply put, laser [...]
