Pointools launches point cloud software bundle
Engineering firms wanting to ease the path of 3D laser scanner point cloud data capture and re-use, while running in their own CAD environments, will be interested in a software bundle from Pointools.
Its Pointools Suite gives users a portfolio of applications and plugs-ins designed to streamline the conversion, processing and re-use of point cloud models, which the company says eliminates translations while maintaining visual quality and data accuracy.
"By packaging these applications and plug-ins in a cost effective bundle, we are making it easier for project teams to work with 3D laser scan data inside their preferred CAD application environments," comments Joe Croser, vice president of products at Pointools.
"For a very competitive price, users can now convert raw point data into detailed 3D point cloud models. They can process and edit point clouds to generate high-definition movies, and they can reuse the same point cloud models inside a broad range of Autodesk, Rhino and Google SketchUp apps," he explains.
As the image, which is of a Ford automotive plant, shows, the definition is excellent – this comprising some 4.5 billion points captured by laser scanner.
