3D Scan Sneak Peek #4 - Sepulveda Dam

Check out our newest 3D model, the Sepulveda Dam in Los Angeles, CA. This metal and concrete structure would be tough to inspect with a manual drone due to GPS and magnetometer interference, but Skydio 3D Scan makes it easy. This scan demonstrates 3D Scan's potential to help pilots perform faster, better, and more accurate inspections of all types of infrastructure.
