3D Model

Frederick, MD Bell Tower

Inspecting tall structures can be a difficult task, especially if they are fragile or aged - even the act of physically inspecting can jeopardize the integrity of parts of the structure.

With 3D Scan, a Skydio can autonomously scan the tower and provide a detailed 3D reconstruction to help inspectors detect even the smallest problem by reviewing the up-close photos, while also opening up doors for digital twins and virtualized asset bases.This model’s photos were taken with 3D Scan on a Skydio 2, and the reconstruction was performed using Bentley ContextCapture.

This model was captured autonomously by Skydio 3D Scan. 3D Scan is a first-of-its-kind adaptive scanning software built on top of Skydio Autonomy. It allows the drone to automate data capture for generating 3D models with comprehensive coverage and ultra-high resolution, so that crews can perform higher quality scans in less time and with minimal pilot training.
