Historical Society Reading Room
SightLine was asked to Laser Scan this historical reading room built in the 1890's. There were no original or as-built documents. From these scans the drawings of this historic reading room were created documenting existing conditions.
In a matter of three weeks SightLine scanned and provided accurate drawings to aid in the planning and execution of the work SightLine scans were performed in the main reading room, circulation desk and balcony areas. Portions of a drop ceiling were removed allowing the laser scanner to capture the ornate details and profiles of the original ceiling in the main room.
SightLine provided highly detailed floor plans, elevations, sections and reflected ceiling plans from the scan data. Gathering this data using traditional methods would have required erecting scaffolding inside the room and weeks of taking measurements and notes.
SightLine completed all scanning in one day and the drawings were completed in the following three weeks.

Scan resolution can be adjusted to meet the requirements of detail
necessary for each individual project.
SightLine has the capability to document a wide range of projects varying in the level of detail. Output scan data can be provided in various formats from 2D drawings to 3D models. This example illustrates the level of detail the scanner is capable of collecting.
