Undet for AutoCAD

Point cloud extension that accelerates point cloud processing, improves accuracy and minimizes rework

What can Undet for AutoCAD do for you?


Undet is a simple yet powerful plug-in that enables modelers to turn 3D laser scan point clouds into accurate 2D & 3D deliverables. It seamlessly integrates with AutoCAD, leveraging the well-known system interface and supplementing it with high-performance point cloud tools. Advanced features assist with specific applications, such as civil engineering, measured building surveys, cultural/heritage preservation and infrastructure.

  • Work with point clouds from any laser scanner or drone: *.E57, *.FLS, *.RCP/RCS, *.PTX, *.ZFS,*.LAS, *.LAZ, *.PTS, *.PLY, *.DP, *.FPR, *.LSPROJ, *.FWS, *.CL3, *.CLR, *.RSP, ASCII / NEZ (X,Y,Z/i/RGB) and custom ASCII / TXT file format imports.

  • Bunch of easy-to-use tools for viewing and working with slices (view sections) of 3D point cloud data to easily control the information you see in your model view.

  • Optimization to maintain high computer and software performance even when working with large amounts of point cloud datasets (hundreds or even thousands of scan stations/files).

  • Intuitive point cloud viewer integration to understand & see better what the point cloud represents. Automatic view sync feature to see the same position in the point cloud viewer and 3D point cloud model with just one click. Discover more >>>

  • Automated tools to group scan files into logical groups: external scans and internal level scans.

  • Smart snapping mode to snap to point cloud points in different ways in adjustable search limits: to the nearest, highest, and lowest points.

  • Tools to automate the preparation of sections & elevations digitization, including new DGW files creations with dedicated UCS, datum line and key plan scheme.

  • Tools to unroll point cloud by reference line/arc and export as a new Undet project.

  • Automatic view orientation tools: by line, by the object, by UCS & by active view section.

  • Automatic feature extraction tools for 3D modelling: extract, fit, extrude, divide, chamfer, fillet 3D solids and planes.

  • Auto-Multi line tool for user-friendly and fast 2D linework extraction with a single click to achieve best-fitting accuracy to actual point cloud slice.

  • Automatic tools to find axis; set UCS to point cloud points and align lines to reference UCS, and mark lines which do not follow UCS.

  • Surface meshing tools to automatically extract pure ground surface mesh with additional tools to edit extracted mesh: decimate, close holes, remove spikes, remove edges, join & export meshes, apply texture and create sections.

Undet for AutoCAD

I run a 3D laser survey company which produces as built 3D models and Topographical surveys in Revit. I have just changed my entire workflow from AutoCAD to Revit so still have some level of familiarity with AutoCAD. I was looking for ground cleaning software that could handle some of the large topographical files I collect. With a number of the products that I fond during my research it was hard to find a blend that wasn't complicated, prone to blue screening due to memory limitations or with limits of the size of point clouds. Undet for AutoCAD seemed to...

Undet for AutoCAD

We have used Undet for 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. We are now able to import an entire scan project into CAD, no longer wasting time pre-processing it into smaller chunks nor loading and unloading them whilst drawing – everything is readily available at our fingertips. Visually, the quality of the data is crisp and the colour control options vast. The...

Undet for AutoCAD

With Undet we can easily create classes and scan groups e.g. scans inside and outside the railway. This allows us to turn off areas of point cloud data that are not required and concentrate only on the area of interest. The resulting display is both quicker and more detailed. The ease of handling within Undet when creating point cloud view sections has helped us to create models in a much more timely and efficient manner but the tool that has most impressed is the SmartBoard. With SmartBoard you can easily create profiles or cross sections with the required depth; an...

Undet for AutoCAD

We use UNDET on a daily basis. One particular example of how we use the software is when we scanned a local school with a Leica P20 scanner, totalling nearly 100 individual scans. Following the registration process, we utilising UNDET to help us to separate scans of each floor plan together with the building’s exterior in order to process the external elevations. UNDET makes sense when viewed from a technical perspective, but the software also makes commercial sense to us as it has given us huge advantages in terms of time-saving benefits as we can now process large point counts...
