Trimble SX10 instrument quickly creates a point cloud with millions of points of the retaining wall and combines surveying, imaging, and 3D scanning into one instrument
Trimble SX10 instrument quickly creates a point cloud with millions of points of the retaining wall. The point cloud is, in essence, a three-dimensional rendering of the retaining wall that resembles a photo. The Trimble SX10 is also a Robotic Total Station, which allows us to collect data conventionally. This allows us to complete a project of this nature with one piece of equipment and therefore saves our patrons money.
SX10 combines surveying, imaging, and 3D scanning into one instrument, and helped collect data points of the retaining wall, which has multiple layers and varying textures along the wall.
We’re confident we can provide the highest quality of surveying services to all of our projects, no matter the type, and we’re able to do that with current technology and software like the Trimble SX10 Scanner.
Trimble SX10 which was launched on the market in early October 2016 has been tested and some experiences carried out with it are reported in this paper. The analyses mainly focus on the survey of a building facade. Next to the laser scanning survey, a photogrammetry campaign using an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) has been carried out. These different datasets are used to assess the Trimble SX10 issued point clouds through a set of comparisons. Since georeferencing is possible either directly or indirectly using this device, data processed both ways are also compared to conclude about the more reliable method.
Used Trimble SX10 combines high-speed 3D scanning, enhanced Trimble VISION imaging technology, and high-accuracy total station measurements into the familiar area and office workflows for surveyors.
The innovative solution supplies surveyors and geospatial professionals together with the abilities and versatility to deal with jobs from conventional surveys to complex 3D modeling.
This configuration enables surveyors to gather camera images in addition to the exact 3D dimension in the area without adding any steps to their conventional surveying workflows. Used Trimble SX10 Scanning Total Station to capture both higher precision total station measurements and true high-speed 3D scans together in a single instrument.
This Employed SX10 steps at 26,600 points each second, with a 360° by 300° area of view. It scans at a range of 600 meters, using a spot size of 14 millimeters in 100 meters.
Trimble touts the SX10 as having no learning curve, as it integrates directly with the Trimble software which their customers are already utilizing.
Used Trimble SX10 is also an entire channel, resolving the job registration on precisely the same tool as the scans and images with a density more suitable for the engineers’ requirements.
