Virtual Design Analysis Group is a division of NVentum, LLC.

This unique collaborative endeavor; to utilize the latest reality capture technology to document the artifacts, buildings and campus of History San Jose, provides opportunities for private sector, non-profits and institutions of higher education to work together to solve some of today's most pressing engineering issues. The protocol for retrofitting as-built historic facilities and the use of new technologies to preserve our most prized historic treasures are vital to the continued success and expanded influence of our museums.
This blog will document the challenges and successes of this ambitious, one of a kind project.

3D Laser Scanning - Architectural

This is a beautiful example of a street scan in Gothenburg, Sweden using FARO Focus 3D laser Scanner and PointTools Software. This point cloud contains over 400 Million points.

Over the years, we have watched the progress of FARO through the expansion of their product line and applications. FARO's recent collaboration with Blach Construction's Mission Carmel documentation project led to NVentum's first conversation with FARO regarding our work with the San Jose History Park. As those of you who've read some of my previous blog post know, developing work flow is a significant component of the Capturing History Project. Finding the right equipment, with compatible, cost efficient software is critical to developing a process that makes economic sense for owners and operators to consider retrofitting and/or upgrading their buildings.
We're really looking forward to expanding our discussions with FARO and developing the processes that will enable museums to digitally document their capital facilities.
Stay tuned for updates about the equipment selected to complete our project....
