Penn State East Campus Steam Plant 3D Scan
The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA
Stahl Sheaffer performed 3D scanning and modeling on Penn State’s East Campus Steam Plant (ECSP), including the interior, exterior, and roof of the facility, utilizing a FARO Focus 330X HDR phase-based laser scanner. The resulting 3D point clouds and 360-degree imagery were compiled into one dataset based on references in drawings provided by AEI. Following unified point cloud compilation, the data was used to create 3D Building Information Models for use in AutoDesk Revit, with the intent of providing geometry of existing features within the plant that may cause obstructions to the design process for new construction.
