"Artiga interviewed for Lidar News feature article"

Published June 5, 2015 in Lidar News. "Advanced Extraction Algorithms Reduce False Pipe Identification in Laser Scan Point Cloud” by Kevin P. Corbley.
Meridian 3D Converts to Automated Workflow.
"Meridian 3D, Inc. had tested automated extraction software to model the piping in laser scan point clouds of industrial plants in the past, but found the technology was generating too many false positives, especially when highly reflective stainless steel pipes were involved. A recent trial project at a chemical plant, however, convinced the firm's scanning experts that extraction algorithms have finally advanced enough to meet the demands of their typical modeling projects..."

"Nixon quoted in Plant Services Magazine: Laser Scanning stands upon data with integrity"

Kris Nixon, PLS and Principal of Meridian 3D was quoted in a recent article in Plant Services Magazine. The premise of the article, "3D Plant Imaging and Modeling" by Sheila Kennedy, is as follows: "3D facility and equipment modeling improves design visualization as well as plant maintenance and expansion tasks. The U.S. General Services Administration is requiring phased 3D, 4D, and building information modeling (BIM) adoption for major projects receiving design funding because of the benefits." As Kris points out in the article, it is important to realize that 3D laser scanning results are only as good as the data behind it. Meridian 3D backs its data sets with "rigorous professional survey grade methodology and quality practices;" as such, our resultant models have "verified dimensional integrity."

"Article published in WorkFlow 4.0: The Case for Service Providers"

In a recent issue of WorkFlow 4.0 magazine, Kris Nixon, PLS and Principal of Meridian 3D makes a strong case for the importance of professional service providers. As a new, tech-savvy generation of engineers assumes leadership roles in the industry, the demand for reliable as-built models is greater than ever, so the resultant tide of interest in getting into the laser scanning field is understandable – but end users need to remain focused on accuracy, precision, quality product, and a level of risk mitigation that only a seasoned professional service provider like Meridian 3D can provide.
