A handheld self-contained 3D scanner, based on Android.

What is CADWorx FieldPipe?
With CADWorx Fieldpipe, users can rapidly create intelligent as-built models directly from scanned plant data. As-built pipe can be routed by selecting just a single point on a pipe run, which cuts out hundreds of time-consuming steps in the as-built creation process.
