We live in a world where technology and the adaptation of new technology is constantly changing to make products and services better and faster. Forensic engineering and accident reconstruction is no exception to this rule- especially in its use of 3D scanning. Here is why your experts should be using 3D scanning:
- Gives an explanation of the event and environment
- Verification of Measurements
- Preservation of Evidence
- Incident Reconstruction
- Reduction of Additional Site Visits
- Ability to test theories
- Much safer way to inspect losses
CED Technologies has 3D scanning capabilities and can help. To read CED related articles click below or call us at 800-780-4221.

3D Scanning and Insurance Claims – http://www.visidoimaging.com/3d-technology-subrogation/
“The insurance adjuster has dozens, if not hundreds, of claims to assess in catastrophic events and it’s a matter of being fast – but accurate as can be by the same token. Scanning inherits both traits of being a camera and a tape measure.”
Case Study: Integration of Laser Scanning and Three-dimensional Models in the Legal Process Following an Industrial Accident http://www.e-shaw.net/article/S2093-7911%2816%2930296-7/abstract
A case study involving a fatal incident was surveyed using three-dimensional laser scanning, and subsequently recreated through virtual and physical models. The created models were then utilized in both accident investigation and legal process, to explore the technologies used in this setting.
