We faced the challenges of 3D scanning. And we solved them.

Many industries depend on 3D scanning to manage complex projects, enabling them to get jobs done quickly and accurately.

The challenges of 3D are clear. Each project requires the right tools, whether you're delivering scan data of as-built conditions, performing comprehensive data analysis or creating a renovation model based on an existing structure.

Trimble has developed the 3D scanning solutions you can trust to meet these challenges and quickly capture, analyze, model and produce precise deliverables, project after project.

  • Quality with no compromise on speed/range
  • Productivity in field and office
  • A streamlined user experience
  • Reliable automatic targetless registration
  • Durability to handle demanding environments
Having tested a number of solutions, my demanding challenges of 300-400 scans per week on average are solved best with the Trimble TX8 and Trimble RealWorks.Nicolas Bernard, CEO, MonacoTopo

A revolution in 3D scanning

The Trimble® TX6 and TX8 3D laser scanners are changing the way the industry looks at 3D. Both capture high quality scans at exceptionally high speeds as they deliver superior accuracy and range. Users now have more options to choose from to handle a wider range of projects with the same, powerful Trimble Lightning technology, making the TX6 and TX8 the best values on the market.

Powerful software you can trust

Once the fieldwork is done, rely on powerful software to efficiently, effectively manage large data sets and produce compelling deliverables.

At the heart of our 3D solution is Trimble RealWorks. You can export data to popular CAD software or pair Trimble RealWorks® with Trimble SketchUp® or EdgeWise.

Whatever the project or requirement, we provide the equipment, software service and support to ensure your success.

Urban Environments

The Trimble TX6 and TX8 quickly and accurately scan urban areas. The eye safe Class 1 invisible laser is safe to use in busy public places and a scan pause function helps reduce noise. Trimble RealWorks plane-based registration makes scan registration automatic and the Auto-Classify tool can group the point cloud segments for ground, buildings, poles and signs.

Industrial Environments

Plants, offshore platforms, ships and factories all require multiple setups to capture the exact details of pipes and equipment. Speed, accuracy and high resolution are all given. With the automatic target-based registration within RealWorks, even more time is saved.

pic12.jpg

Civil Infrastructure

The TX8's accuracy over the full 120m scan range and 340m extended range option are ideal for scanning roads, highways, bridges, dams and tunnels. Capture high resolution detail and use Trimble RealWorks to create measurements, profiles, sections, contours, volumes and line work for deliverables.

Forensics

The Trimble TX6 and TX8 offer an effective solution for law enforcement to scan accident and crime scenes. The internal HDR camera enables the quick capture of images to automatically colorize scans and optional external camera kits are available to take higher resolution or HDR panoramic imagery and to colorize scans in RealWorks. Data also can be imported into Trimble Visual Statement for reconstruction.
