Arithmetica to Launch Pointfuse Pro

Recommended Posts

Arithmetica is launching a brand new version of its automated point cloud processing software. Pointfuse Pro includes new 2D tools that allow for the creation of plans, elevations and sections from highly detailed laser scan data as well as orthorectified images. Pointfuse also includes support for a much wider range of raw data, including a new open standard file format, and for data generated by handheld laser scanners that are set to revolutionise the construction industry. Pointfuse Pro also includes new functionality that allows users to understand the accuracy of resulting vector models created from the laser scanned data.


Pointfuse Pro includes a range of new functionality with the software’s 2D tools. These includes the ability to generate orthorectified images from the point cloud which can be scaled and used as layouts for final delivery in a range of other CAD, desktop mapping and GIS packages. The new 2D tools also allow for the production of plans, elevation and sections as line work for applications such as architecture, facilities management, surveying and construction. In addition to the new 2D tools, Pointfuse Pro also includes new accuracy reporting tools. This functionality allows the user to define project tolerances and, based on the standard deviation statistics, Pointfuse can visualise the accuracy of the vector model by colour coding the created surfaces.


Pointfuse Pro now supports an even wider range of laser scanned data formats, including the DotProduct format and E57. DotProduct uses off the shelf Android Tablets for high resolution handheld 3D laser scanning. Designed for engineers and others working in the construction industry, this offers a lightweight, cost effective solution for laser scanning in challenging environments. E57 is the open standard file format for 3D imaging data exchange, and is capable of storing point cloud data from laser scanners and other 3D imaging systems, as well as associated 2D imagery and core meta-data.

Hi roycastanares. Pointfuse is a quick an accurate way to convert large and/or multiple point clouds into textured vector models. Textures include RGB, intensity, density, distance from surface or attribute value (number of points, or standard deviation).


You can import point clouds in formats including DP, E57, FLS, FWS, LAS, LAZ, PTS, PTX and XYZ.


There are tools for cropping point clouds and vector models and to create plans, multiple sections, elevations and scaled ortho images.


You can export to DAE, DXF, IFC or OBJ for further processing, e.g. in CAD.


The Pro version includes batch processing for both converting point clouds to vector models and for exporting to other formats. 


Try the newly released 1.1 version of Pointfuse Pro, free for 14 days or 10 exports: http://pointfuse.com/get-pointfuse/.
