Following on from our previous post announcing PointCloud Release 7, here is a video showing one of the new (and probably most useful) functions.
Then ortho image is easily created from a laser scanned point cloud in AutoCAD. The image is to scale and can be imported to any program that handles raster images. Draw easy elevations, great for printing or annotating for a deliverable. Contact us for more information.
We are pleased to announce that the latest version of kubit’s PointCloud software for AutoCAD is now available for download.
The new features include:
Support of AutoCAD 2012 and Autodesk products based on AutoCAD 2012.
New product family “PointSense”. The first of this new family will be released in the UK in July. “PointSense Plant” is a catalog driven plant modelling tool that identifies pipe fittings from a catalog and matches them to the cloud.
Generation of Ortho Images from point clouds including “X-Ray”. Included in the “Basic” and “Pro” variants images may be created which could enable off-line tracing of detail to create 2D drawings.
Fit cylinder with just two clicks (AutoCAD 2010 and higher). A faster and easier method to fitting pipes than previous releases.
“Flatten drawing“ – project geometry to a UCS. For delivering 2D drawings from 3D wireframe.
“SmartSection” for detailed display of AutoCAD point clouds (PCG). One of the disadvantages of the PCG engine in AutoCAD is the density of the point display. Smart sections enable the current working section of the cloud to be displayed in it’s full density.
Improvements to the image orientation workflow. Controlling the viewports and view is vital for fast modelling. Release 7 eases this with a number of new commands.
Support for “Ribbons” in AutoCAD 2010 to 2012: an alternative for the classic menu and toolbars (actually takes less space than showing all toolbars)
PointCloud Release 7 supports All 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Windows 7, Vista and XP (Windows 2000 is no longer supported).
Each of these new features will be examined in forthcoming posts.
Release 7 is provided free of charge to existing users on subscription but please remember to request your upgraded license before installation.
