||In the New possibilities of 3D measurements and modelling -project, run by Optical Measurement Laboratory of Lapland University of Applied Sciences, a new kind of approach for as-built modelling has been developed. The approach is based on parametric modelling and object designated measurements of 3D points. In order to minimize the manual modelling work, the feasibility of the approach for modelling measured objects automatically on-line (modelling while measuring) was stressed in the development work.
Proposed as-built modelling approach proved to be feasible alternative especially for modelling the indoors of the buildings. Also industrial designers dealing with as-built modelling tasks in which all-inclusive point clouds are not needed, may find the findings of the study interesting.
In this publication both the main principles of the implementation of the ap¬proach and learnings from four industrial demonstrations are presented. Topics for further research and development are also suggested.
