3DReshaper – Tank Analysis

3DReshaper - The 3D Scanner Software

Solution: Complete Workflow Dedicated to Tank Analysis 

For general tank inspections, 3D scanners allow you to quickly capture high accuracy and high density information to evaluate the conditions of storage tanks. Thanks to 3DReshaper and its dedicated module, run a complete and guided analysis, using API 650/653 tolerances, or not. 

Use for these analyses:

3D Inspection

Automatically compute plumbness and the best cylinder of the tank. Compute and customize a 3D color map to inspect your tank, and create labels to know the exact deviation on a given point. Unroll the tank shell to display a 2D color map.

Roundness & Verticality

Compute horizontal and vertical profiles to check the roundness and the verticality of the tank shell. Display one or several profiles as a grid and magnify deviations in order to better detect deformations. 


Compute differential settlement (non-uniform settling of the tank) or localized settlement (detect low and high areas on the bottom of the tank) according to standard API 653.


Export all the measurements in a complete and customizable report ready for delivery to your customer, or export CSV tables in order to evaluate the data in another software.

3DReshaper is easy-to-use and affordable software dedicated to point cloud processing for various applications. It is a complete toolbox to meet many 3D modeling or inspection needs.
