Begutachtung Spacific

XR SCAN for Assessment and Documentation

It is not only in the preservation of evidence that a solution is required that can quickly and flexibly capture the status quo. XR Scan simplifies and shortens work processes for all forms of spatial surveys and documentation. Whether in engineering, real estate or construction, accurate measurements and representations are currently far too often still a major cost factor as well as a time factor:

  • Scenario

    ➔ The customer wants to record an as-is situation as accurately as possible, i.e. digitally.
    ➔ He wants a model of the room, including dimensions and other digital information, pictures and notes.
    ➔ The work must be done both indoors and outdoors.
    ➔ At the moment, the customer has an overall analog process.

  • Solution

    ➔ Measurement using AR device Microsoft HoloLens 2
    ➔ The user marks the objects and thus measures them manually.
    ➔ The data can be retrieved later at any time.
    ➔ Additional system connections provide the customer with additional data.

  • Client Benefits

    ➔ Completely digitalized evidence collection process with measurement solution
    ➔ Shortened operating times
    ➔ Guided workflows that do not require skilled personnel

BIM Spacific

XR SCAN for updating 3D objects / BIM models

Many industries work with 3D models, but do not take the important last step – by continuing to measure adjustments and add small details manually, using a handheld laser or folding rule. A completely digitalized measurement process with augmented reality not only saves time and nerves, but also significantly reduces costs, not least due to a massive reduction in the rate of human errors:

  • Scenario

    ➔ Many trades have to constantly remeasure rooms and objects.
    ➔ The 3D model has to be readjusted in small parts each time.
    ➔ The measuring is done manually by hand laser or folding rule.
    ➔ The results are noted and filed manually.

  • Solution

    ➔ Measurement using an AR device with lidar technology
    ➔ The solution automatically detects and measures objects.
    ➔ The data is stored in the cloud.
    ➔ The results are provided as a CAD model, which forms the basis for further planning and calculations.

  • Client Benefits

    ➔ Time advantage in the work process: 5 days
    ➔ End-to-end digitized business process
    ➔ Use of smartphone or tablet for measurements

Treppenaufmaß Spacific

XR SCAN for staircase measurement

In the trades as well as in sales, complex, small-scale objects such as stairs are often still extremely time-consuming to measure. A solution like XR SCAN, which automatically creates an accurate 3D model from manual markers, offers real advantages here:

  • Scenario

    ➔ The customer is looking for an alternative to the existing camera-based solution.
    ➔ The aim is to create an end-2-end digitalized business process.
    ➔ The customer is a first mover with Hololens 1.

  • Solution

    ➔ Measurement using AR device Microsoft HoloLens 1
    ➔ The user marks the objects and thus measures them manually via a marker.
    ➔ The data is transferred to a backend.
    ➔ The customer receives an individual solution.
    ➔ Since October 2018, 120 salespeople are already working with this solution.

  • Client Benefits

    ➔ Fully digitized sales process with measurement solution and 3D product configurator
    ➔ Shortened sales cycles
    ➔ No specialists are required for the guided workflows in the measurement process.
    ➔ 15 % cost reduction

Spacific Anlagenbau

XR SCAN in Plant Engineering

With measurement accuracy suitable for industrial production, achieving precise results even at greater distances, XR SCAN significantly reduces both the duration and cost of the work process in plant engineering.

  • Scenario

    ➔ The construction progress should be documented seamlessly.
    ➔ The manual "red pencil" control takes a very long time.
    ➔ Measurements must be accurate to the centimeter, even over longer distances.
    ➔ Data preparation is partly provided by service providers.
    ➔ Experts are no longer always required to take measurements.

  • Solution

    ➔ Measurement using AR device with lidar technology
    ➔ The data is then transferred to a backend.
    ➔ Measurement results are transferred directly to the CAD program and are automatically integrated there.

  • Client Benefits

    ➔ Time advantage in the work process: 14 days
    ➔ Continuous digital documentation of construction progress
    ➔ Cost savings of approx. € 35,000 per job due to reduction of error costs and savings on the part of the service provider

Schiffsbau Spacific

XR SCAN in shipbuilding

The situation is similar in shipbuilding: Due to the continuous progress of construction, the dimensions are constantly changing – if not all data is available digitally, the adjustment often takes up too much valuable time.

  • Scenario

    ➔ Due to constantly changing dimensions in the construction progress, planning has to be rescheduled again and again.
    ➔ Data is only available on paper.
    ➔ The work process for transferring the re-measurements to the new planning basis takes 5 days.

  • Solution

    ➔ Measurement using AR device Microsoft HoloLens 2
    ➔ The user independently marks the objects and thus measures them manually via a marker.
    ➔ The data is transferred to a backend.
    ➔ The customer uses the resulting CAD data for further planning.

  • Client Benefits

    ➔ Time advantage in the work process: 4 days - time in which the ship can be delivered more quickly
    ➔ Continuous digital documentation of the construction progress
    ➔ 20 % cost savings due to reduction of error costs
