A great video showcasing very simple yet efficient workflow for 3D modelling from point cloud in SketchUp using Undet extension.
Undet opened brand new workflows for SketchUp users involving point clouds. 3D Building Modelling, Architecture and Interior Design, 3D City Modelling – these are recent projects successfully delivered by first Undet for SketchUp users. Furthermore, next to numerous already supported file formats we implemented direct DotProduct *.DP import. This combination of DotProduct + SketchUp + Undet makes an extremely affordable solution reducing barriers for technology-savvy end users.
Tori Wilkinson, CAD Manager for Siteline Limited, relates how the surveying business based in Hampshire, England, has exploited Undet point cloud software to streamline its workflow. "We have used Undet for close to a year now and have found the improvements in our workflow to be significant. The interface is very user-friendly and highly intuitive and the software incredibly stable, allowing us to work with far larger data sets within the AutoCAD environment than was previously possible."
Did you ever want to bring in scan data directly in SketchUp? We bet you did, and now, you can. Undet4SketchUp offers a unique opportunity to use any pointcloud directly in SketchUp Pro and provides great tools for efficient pointcloud visibility and colouring management.

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?
