This report describes the approach to create permanently updated 3D models of research aircraft and laboratory facilities. Therefore, optical metrology scans the research environment in its raw or as-delivered condition. The result is a virtual model of the actual geometry and, in comparison to reference data (e.g. CAD-data), the smallest inaccuracies can be identi- fied and analyzed. The exact position of non-rigid components, like riser ducts, electronics or isolation, can be determined in the models. Further changes to the layout of these facilities are permanently digitized and added to the virtual model of the environment. This can be a new recording of the entire facility or of individual areas that are affected by the changes. The individual, newly recorded models are then integrated into the existing model. This creates an always up-to-date 3D model of the research environment, which is added to its digital twin and can be observed there. In combination with CAD data, future conversion and installation measures are planned in advance and analyzed virtually in relation to the up-to-date geometry and installation space data. In addition, the virtual models of the aircraft cabins can be used to support the lengthy approval and certification process at an early stage.
