3D SCANNING & PRINTING
Whether you need to retrofit, refurbish, or simply do routine maintenance on an existing building, 3D laser scanning can deliver a full, more accurate picture of parts or entire structures much faster than traditional surveying. A 3D laser scan can help reverse engineer objects without the cycles of trial and error that are normally a drag on such projects.
Companies such as Laser Scanning Australia, 3D Scanning Australia, and National Survey Solutions help with life cycle management and quality control for existing and new builds. The Sydney Build Expo taking place 19 and 20 March will for the first time feature a geospatial summit at the digital construction zone, with a discussion of 3D scanning and 3D laser mapping.
By measuring one data point at a time, 3D laser scanners create a “point cloud,” which can be loaded into modelling software to show what new additions would look like laid over an existing structure. These models can be loaded into virtual and augmented reality headsets that workers wear as they build, giving them an interactive blueprint to assist in their task.

SOFT OPENING - CONSUMER CONFIDENCE A KEY FACTOR IN RECOVERY
As states and territories reopened their economies in various phases throughout May and June, it became clear that simply being open is not enough to get firing on all cylinders again. First, there are safety regulations limiting how many patrons a business can serve at a time. Just as important is consumer confidence. If shoppers don’t feel safe visiting a business, they’re not going to, and there’s no forcing them. Some services requiring intimate personal contact have an even harder time with this. Just because someone can get a massage doesn’t mean they’re comfortable with it.

COMING OUT OF OUR CAVES - LIFE IN PUBLIC AS RESTRICTIONS EASE
The pubs reopened to great rejoicing and some free beer as coronavirus restrictions eased across Australia, although unfortunately, it was too late for millions of litres of suds that had to be tipped down the drain.

Rules vary by state and territory, but over the past several weeks, Aussies have been able to dine out, go to holiday homes, and gather in small groups once more.
