We offer 3D model creation services for large objects, such as buildings, bridges, monuments, and more for various purposes, including restoration.
We use drones equipped with high-quality digital cameras and LiDAR to obtain accurate measurements.
We are ShapeX
3D FLY SCAN
HOW IT WORKS
MEASUREMENT AND 3D MODELING
We use modern drones equipped with high-precision laser scanners and ultra-high-definition cameras
Better results with minimal resource requirements compared to traditional methods
The high-precision laser scanner allows ShapeX to create models with maximum detail
ShapeX software generates optimized high-poly models in any modern 3D format.
A team of ShapeX pilots arrives at the facility and launches the drone. The flight can take place in manual or automatic mode. During the flight, the digital camera takes photographs of the object in parallel with the operation of LiDAR. For example, a power line tower requires only one flight. After the data is checked in the field, data will be sent to the web platform for further processing.
We believe that automated drawings and reports allow you to speed up your work and minimize the risk of accidental human error. Our system creates drawings of building facades, generates a report from them and sends it to the client. For projects related to the calculation of the structural load of elements, the operator must select the desired element and get a report on it.
3D SCANNING AND DEFORMATION CONTROL
Control for deformation
We use our drones to scan hard-to-reach places that a human cannot access
We create a detailed 3D model based on the initial fly-by to identify key structural elements and control points
ShapeX generates a deformation control map of all critical structural elements and points for the object or structure that was scanned
Regular scanning is scheduled for routine deformation control checks.
Over time, ShapeX software analyzes control points and key structural elements to detect positional changes and generate a deformation report and forecast
We use advanced software that merges photogrammetry and machine learning technologies for analysis and post-processing, giving you to get the most accurate results.
We process images obtained using RGB or multispectral cameras to obtain dense point clouds, textured polygonal models, georeferenced orthomosaics and digital elevation/terrain models (DEM / DTM) as well as full dimensional drawings depend on the client’s needs.
DAMAGE CONTROL AND REPORTING
We use our drones to scan hard-to-reach places that a human cannot access
Damage change report
The ultra-high-definition camera adds precise texture to the object or structure
This enables us to determine the type and scale of damage.
Routine scanning uncovers damage progression based on positional changes of control points.
We believe that automated drawings and reports allow you to speed up your work and minimize the risk of accidents or human error.
Our system creates drawings of building facades, generates a report, and sends it to the client. For projects related to the calculation of the structural load of elements, the operator must select the desired element.
Our fleet consists of the best drones from American and Chinese manufacturers. We use the latest DJI drones for large objects and several solutions from Parrot and Autel for smaller objects.
A drone flight takes 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the mission type, payload, and the drone itself. In addition to the drone, during the flight, we use a special GNSS station, which allows us to obtain accurate coordinates of photographs.
Our LiDAR allows measurements from heights up to 200 meters with an error of less than 5 cm. The scanning speed is 350,000 points per second. Light weight, built-in cameras allow us to reduce your project costs.
We use RTK technology to obtain highly accurate models. However, we continue to use special markers on the ground (GCP) for data control. In monitoring projects, the use of permanently fixed points increases the quality of deviation assessment.
We use advanced photogrammetry and LiDAR data processing. Our proprietary algorithm for comparing models at different times helps to find deviations from the vertical line up to 1 degree. After creating a 3D model, computer vision algorithms find characteristic points on the two models, compare their coordinates with a correction for capture accuracy, and calculate the total shift. The results of the assessment are presented in the form of a report.
Using the point cloud obtained from LiDAR helps us to automatically find all trees that can potentially fall on wires. A vector model of wires is also built and information about the distance to the ground is stored in the database for each.
Our main product is measurable 3D models. It is absolutely necessary to us that our clients are confident in the accuracy and completeness of our results. We have tested our solution many times against classical manual survey and manual modeling methods. Experiments show our advantage in both data completeness and quality.
Accuracy is not just a word for us. We know that even an error of 5 cm can be expensive, both in terms of resources expended and in terms of eliminated consequences when it comes to preventing dangerous situations.
The use of 3D models obtained from the drone guarantees accuracy. The entire object is modelled at once, not in parts, which could lead to an error in the location of the parts relative to each other. We use RTK technologies, which allow us to achieve an accuracy of 1-3 cm. It is also mandatory that we carry out control using GCPs.
Terrestrial systems lack the ability to measure all parts of large structures. The use of drones and 3D models allows you to capture an object from all sides for further detailed inspection.
We use a combination of LiDARs and digital cameras to deliver the best product. Using different data in one workspace, our operator can prepare a mixed 3D model with the advantages of each technology. Data can be provided in all popular formats.
Our user-friendly web interface allows the use of data by experts including engineers, architects, and builders. However, it is important for us that ordinary building owners can use our product as well. We provide a simple yet functional minimalistic interface for a better experience.
A 3D terrain model, created from the UAV, is a powerful tool in the hands of the designer. The use of 3D models is a new and promising direction in the field of design. With the help of 3D drone technologies, you can fully explore the landscape features of the territory. One-time coverage of the entire development area help predicts possible natural changes and choosing the optimal position of engineering communications. Digital surface models and DEMs are fully compatible with GIS and CAD. This will enable spatial analysis and assessment of excavation volumes.
Power line monitoring
Inspection of engineering networks using unmanned systems is the most effective and cost-effective way to obtain complete information about the condition of power plants, power lines, heating mains, and other energy infrastructure facilities.
Our technologies allow you to inspect equipment without shutting it down, thus reducing costly downtime of power lines.
Based on aerial photography materials and the use of special software, actual accurate orthophotomaps, digital terrain models, and 3D models are created. Remote monitoring of power lines from UAVs is the most affordable, fast and least labour-intensive method.
Activities for the development of urban and rural areas include solving a number of complex problems that conceptually need historical information, relevant data and possible prospects (Archive, Fact, Plan). Development levers such as urban zoning and spatial planning, as well as architectural design and cadastral work, require accurate and up-to-date spatial data. Keeping the cartographic base up to date in a constantly changing environment using traditional land-based methods is time consuming and requires significant funding. The lack of topographic and geodetic information, in turn, significantly slows down the processes of territorial planning.
The introduction of modern technologies into the instruments of urban planning policy gives a tangible positive economic effect. The use of drones allows you to quickly receive complete, relevant and regularly updated information about the state of the urban environment at a minimal cost. Such data will help improve the quality of decision-making and improve management efficiency. Together with data publishing technologies, aerial footage will serve as an excellent information resource for involving the public in the urban planning process.
Oil and Gas
One of the main interests of any oil and gas company is to keep their pipelines and production infrastructure in excellent condition. Considering that oil production and transportation takes place in remote, inaccessible areas with harsh climates, the requirements for ensuring industrial and environmental safety are significant. For effective risk management, rational planning and optimal resource exploitation, information in support of these works is critical.
Modern unmanned aerial vehicles have proven their effectiveness for industrial and environmental monitoring of oil and gas facilities. Drones, together with specially developed software, represent a turnkey solution for aerial monitoring. Our technologies will significantly increase the efficiency of the examination in comparison with traditional methods. Moreover, with the help of our drones, it becomes possible to survey areas previously inaccessible due to impassable terrain. In addition to simple visual inspection, infrared and thermal imaging are available. This allows for timely detection of pipeline failures, fires and leaks, preventing serious accidents.
