On-site Digital Measure and 3D CAD for Glass Railings (Balustrades), Staircases & other glass applications

Bent glass balustrades perfectly measured with digital precision

Bent glass balustrades and other specialty glass is no longer hampered by the need to measure, manufacture, transport and store cumbersome and time consuming physical templates. With Glasshape® on-site digital measurement service, our specialist technicians visit your site, with state-of-the-art scanning hardware to produce electronic templates with unparalleled accuracy. This is then turned into 3D renders for review and approval saving significant time and expense. Furthermore, electronic files are easily stored and retrieved should replacement panels ever be required in the future.

3D Laser Scanning & Digitising:

We can use your measurements, or come to site and generate them from existing structures whether architectural or marine, glass balustrades, windows, doors or even unrelated to glass components.

Mesh Creation:

Specialised CAD Software translates the data into a ‘mesh’, providing an accurate representation of the project.

3D Computer Modelling:

3D CAD models are generated from the mesh geometry to ensure a perfect fit to framework. We are happy to take your existing 2D CAD files to turn them into 3D models, should you require them.

Engineering Drawings:

Engineering drawings for production and quality control are subsequently generated and approved by the client.

Computer Rendering:

Should you require, we are able to produce photorealistic ‘renders’ of a finished project in-situ to help visualise the end result for you or your clients.

3D Virtual Reality – Design Reviews

Communicating and understanding design intent is critical when producing products that need to deliver on, or above customer expectations. To ensure this happens, Glasshape engages with its customers throughout the design process, resolving any potential issues before a single piece of Glass is manufactured.

Design reviews take place on-line in a Virtual World, using the latest VR Technology, where our CAD Technicians walk customers through their projects in real time.

If you are looking for peace of mind and trouble-free solutions, let us guide you through the process of realizing those challenging projects, where we take the virtual and make it a reality.

3D Design Animations

Producing engaging Animations and Photo Realistic Renderings are also part of our Design Service offerings. If you would like to take your project with us to the next level and present it to your customers, then talk to our Sales Team and we will see what we can do for you.
