PointSense Pro: 3D Laser Scan Data within AutoCAD<sup>®</sup>

POINTSENSE PRO: 3D LASER SCAN DATA WITHIN AUTOCAD®

 

PointSense Pro for AutoCAD® adds useful tools for modelling and analyzing 3D laser scan data in AutoCAD® and its associated products, such as Civil 3D, Architecture and Map 3D.

 

PointSense Pro is universally suitable for many different AutoCAD® workflows, such as inventory documentation in the preservation of monuments and historic buildings, in archaeological excavation documentation or construction supervision for Quality Analysis and Quality Control (QC/QA).

POINTSENSE PRO: 3D LASER SCAN DATA WITHIN AUTOCAD®

 

MANAGEMENT OF POINT CLOUDS WITHIN AUTOCAD®

The Section Manager is a straight-forward tool designed for managing and controlling how point cloud sections are displayed. These sections can be selected or generated automatically; either parallel to a UCS (user coordinate system) or along a designated path. For fast processing, new point cloud sections can be created from existing ones with just one click, by merging or inverting them. Thus, for example trees that obscure façades can be clipped out without losing points on the building.

 

EVALUATING THE 3D SCAN DATA

PointSense Pro adds useful tools for modelling and analyzing 3D laser scan data in AutoCAD®. Geometric objects such as polylines, planes and cylinders can be automatically fitted to parts of the point clouds. A spatial joining of these objects produces corners, edges and peaks. By fitting polygons and lines to point cloud slices layout plans and elevations can be created quickly. Furthermore, newly designed objects can be analyzed for clashes with existing objects represented by the scans. Tools for deformation analysis are also provided.

 

ADDITIONAL SCAN VIEWS

The additional single scan view of PointSense provides a clear photo-like image of the single scans and allows a much more intuitive navigation than the one inside of point clouds. The unintentional snapping background points is not possible in this view.

 

ORTHOIMAGES OF A POINT CLOUD

The user can create orthoimages of the point cloud from any desired direction. In the resulting raster image all objects that are parallel to the projection plane are to scale. In this way the orthoimage can be used as image plan and if needed combined with AutoCAD® vector graphics and supplemented with dimensions.
