Along with the support of SketchUp 2017 we improved snapping to point cloud points, implemented coordinate system transformation and introduced a whole new automated features extraction functionality that allows to detect and automatically extract planes corner lines and surface meshes.
Do you process massive point clouds every day? Do you strive for productivity and efficiency? What if you could save countless hours on as-built 2D and 3D documentation works? Would the result be: Reduced project timelines? More projects within the same time? Beating the competition? Gaining more profit? You name it and you can have it.
We decided to integrate UNDET in to our extensive range of data processing software to improve efficiency when working with point clouds. UNDET has a fantastic usability factor and has the ability to manage a high point count without performance issues. In short, UNDET is simple, practical and applicable.

Next week is going to be exciting! We are exhibiting at the GeoBusiness 2016 in London. Come and visit us on our Stand F15. We will showcase point cloud software solutions for AutoCAD and for SketchUp and also you will learn what we are up to next. Attend our training and demonstration session on Tuesday 24 May at 9.30, Room K. You will learn how to efficiently process massive point clouds, improve 2D/3D/BIM workflows, reduce project timelines, drive productivity and save money.
The main value of Undet software is its efficiency and ease of use when working with point clouds in AutoCAD. Using Undet has helped us to improve our models and to reduce the time spent in creating them considerably, allowing us to reduce costs and improve on delivery times. The time spent in producing models is now typically 30% less than it was previously.
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.
The task was to produce floor plans, sections and elevations in a form of 2D *.dwg. The project consisted of 2120 inside and 230 outside scan locations (2350 scans and 316 GB on disk in total) and was collected over the course of two weeks with a FARO X330. Scans were registered in Scene 5.3 and output as E57 files.
