Undet ToolBox SmartBoard is a navigation/modeling dialog for fast and easy point cloud profiling. Combined together with features extraction SmartBoard is a powerful tool for automated plans and sections extraction, vectorization of irregular profiles and 3D modeling.
Best things happen unexpected. This exactly happened to our newly developed mesh. Neither we nor our users saw anything like this before. Therefore, I feel pretty confident saying that there is no similar meshing functionality in the market. If you can deny me, don’t hesitate, really, drop down some references in comments.
If you merge your scanning positions before moving point cloud into AutoCAD you will not be able to use this feature. But keep reading and this might change your mind. In fact, post doesn’t have lots of written in it. This time 25 min video tutorial of True Scan View navigation inside AutoCAD, its application approaches and synergy with automated features extraction. Enjoy.
Have the desktop applications for point cloud processing improved as much as laser scanners in the past years? Let’s say you spent one day in the field scanning your object with a fancy hardware which captures 1million points/sec, spent one more day for adjustment and registration. If your final deliverable is 2D documentation or 3D model you’d probably transfer your point cloud into CAD. And here is the annoying part - you know that CAD will struggle dealing with all this huge and rich data, so what you usually do? Let me answer this, you decimate your point cloud to half of the points or even less to increase CAD performance and merge your scanning positions to make your point cloud more manageable. So here is my open question: Do you use only half or even less of your fancy scanner abilities?
