Increase the Asset Value with Laser Scanning

Two Hexagon divisions – Leica Geosystems and Hexagon PPM – have leveraged each other’s technologies and now offer a best-in-class laser scanning solution integrated with the market leading Smart Design tools.

Laser Scanning, created with CloudWorx for Smart 3D

Owner operators, EPCs and decommission contractors are challenged with:


  • Cost and time it takes to capture existing asset configurations
  • Work in areas that are difficult to access
  • Hazardous areas (explosion, radiation, toxic)
  • Ability to accurately capture configuration in reasonable time and cost
  • Availability of resources
  • Project schedules
  • Management of subcontractors and project bidding/estimating
  • Creation of environmental impact studies
  • Making accurate constructability studies
  • Lowering risk of project planning (i.e. replacement of equipment)
  • Comparing as-designed and as-built

How we help increase asset value:

  • Associate information to the assets to enable searching/decision making
  • Exact/as-built location data
  • Relationships of all assets (how they all connect)
  • Ability to search for assets in context of task at hand
  • Creating the true as-built configuration
  • Updating deliverables – such as drawings – to remain current

Intergraph Smart® Laser Data Engineer
Intergraph Smart® Laser Data Engineer overcomes the biggest productivity challenges in using point cloud data with JetStream’s state-of-the-art point cloud rendering performance and centralized point cloud administration.
Intergraph Smart® Laser Data Manager
Intergraph Smart® Laser Data Manager provides a full office workflow to import, register, validate, manage, and render point clouds when working with CloudWorx for Intergraph Smart 3D.
CloudWorx™ for Intergraph Smart 3D

CloudWorx™ for Intergraph Smart 3D is a plug-in for efficiently manipulating as-built point cloud data – captured by laser scanners – directly within Smart 3D for better retrofit design, construction, and operations.

CloudWorx™ SmartPlant® Review

The CloudWorx™ add-on uses the Leica Geosystems HDS Cyclone™ software platform to provide access to point cloud data inside SmartPlant® Review. This powerful combination enables you to perform a plant walkdown without leaving the comfort and safety of your office!

CloudWorx™ PDS®

Leica CloudWorx™ for PDS® is the most efficient and popular plug-in software for using as-built point cloud data – captured by laser scanners – directly within PDS.

Improving Asset Value Through Laser Scanning

Learn how Hexagon PPM supplies an ‘add-on’ to Intergraph Smart® 3D called CloudWorx which will read the laser scan point cloud and display it to the designer in the 3D environment. CloudWorx also contains tools for point cloud visualization, automated pipe routing, server based interference checking and modelling with the point clouds as reference.
