About Captive 3D


We are a unique company specializing in the use of 3D laser scanning technology. Operating in Ottawa Ontario, we also travel across Canada and the World. We are passion driven and strive for excellence in everything we do.

We can fully capture any site in high detail and accuracy, creating a digital copy of as-is conditions. With our scan data we can provide several deliverables: registered point clouds (which can be imported into most CAD software for modeling and analysis, or used standalone to acquire site measurements), as-built documentation & drawings, scan-to-BIM services, and geospatial/topographical information like floor flatness/levelness surveys.

LiDAR based 3D scanning and surveying is the most effective way for acquiring highly detailed spatial information. By integrating the use of point clouds into traditional workflows, we have saved our clients substantial time and costs.

We work closely with our Clients, understanding their specific needs and forming tailored solutions. The security and confidentiality of our client’s data is of our highest priority.

Travel Ready - We deploy the most powerful mobile workstations.

Insured - We carry full commercial & professional liability insurance.
