We create Digital Twins

AEC Going 3D

You Build...We Scan!

What is a Digital Twin Technology?

A digital twin is a virtual model of a physical object. It spans the object’s lifecycle and uses real-time data sent from sensors on the object to simulate the behavior and monitor operations. Digital twins can replicate many real-world items, from single pieces of equipment in a factory to full installations, such as wind turbines and even entire cities. Digital twin technology allows you to oversee the performance of an asset, identify potential faults, and make better-informed decisions about maintenance and lifecycle.

What are the benefits of digital twins?

Digital twins offer users many benefits. We’ll unpack some of the following.

Real-time information and insights provided by digital twins let you optimize the performance of your equipment, plant, or facilities. Issues can be dealt with as they occur, ensuring systems work at their peak and reduce downtime.

Digital twins can offer you a complete visual and digital view of your manufacturing plant, commercial building, or facility even if it is made up of thousands of pieces of equipment. Smart sensors monitor the output of every component, flagging issues or faults as they happen. You can take action at the first sign of problems rather than waiting until equipment completely breaks down.

The virtual nature of digital twins means you can remotely monitor and control facilities. Remote monitoring also means fewer people have to check on potentially dangerous industrial equipment.

What industries use digital twin technology?

A number of industries are increasingly using digital twins to build virtual representations of their real-world systems. Some of them include the following.

Construction teams create digital twins to better plan residential, commercial, and infrastructure projects while providing a real-time picture of how existing projects are progressing. Architects also use digital twins as part of their project planning by combining 3D modeling of buildings with digital twin technology. Commercial building managers use digital twins to monitor live and historical temperature, occupancy, and air-quality data within rooms and open spaces to improve occupant comfort.

Digital twins are used across the whole manufacturing lifecycle, from designing and planning to maintaining existing facilities. A digital twin prototype allows you to monitor your equipment at all times and analyze performance data that shows how a particular part or the entirety of your plant is functioning.

Digital twins are widely used in the energy sector to support strategic project planning and optimize the performance and lifecycles of existing assets, such as offshore installations, refining facilities, wind farms, and solar projects.

The automotive industry uses digital twins to create digital models of vehicles. Digital twins can give you insights into the physical behavior of the vehicle as well as software, mechanical, and electrical models. It is another area where predictive maintenance is valuable because a digital twin can alert a service center or user when it finds an issue with component performance.

Digital twins are used in the healthcare industry for several instances. These include building virtual twins of entire hospitals, other healthcare facilities, labs, and human bodies to model organs and run simulations to show how patients respond to specific treatments.

Capturing As-Built Constructions

-Create 3D walk-throughs and virtually take anyone immediately to a site or location.

-Generate OBJ files and point clouds for as-builts and construction documentation.

-Export your point cloud into ReCap® or Revit®

-Perform remote inspections, measure while offsite, and reduce site visits by capturing all data the first time.

-Communicate key milestones quickly and effectively by eliminating travel time and by sharing and annotating in the model to get sign offs.

-Replace thousands of photos by capturing all imagery and data at once, and save time by eliminating the need to document, arrange, and label photos.

-Get reflected ceiling plan images and schematic floor plans.

-Capture spaces that are accurate within 1% and 0.1% with Leica BLK360.



Embedded annotations and media in your digital twin to highlight key features of your space.



Generated schematic floor plans of your space throughout the virtual tour.



Measure any aspect of your space, such as walls, windows, machinery, and more.
