PointCab makes child’s play of the evaluation of even the largest point clouds for use in CAD systems.
The intuitive and simple user interface and the evaluation of even the largest point clouds at unsurpassed speed make the software a useful tool for surveyors, architects, planners, and engineers.
Accelerate your entire workflow, starting with measurement per laser scanner, drone or mobile mapping system, all the way to the finished CAD model, thus reducing the time and costs required for your project.
PointCab Suite is the entry-level solution for the efficient processing of point clouds to create detailed 2D floor plans and façade views.
With the practical functions for measurement, the simple web export, and the alignment tools, getting started is child’s play.
If required, modules can be added to adapt the functionality of the software to your specific requirements.
PointCab 3DPro provides the full range of functions.
With these tools, extraction of the most important information from large point clouds has never been easier. Whether 2D or 3D functionality, PointCab enables an optimized workflow from the point cloud to the plan or 3D model.
It goes without saying that the registration of terrestrial scans and the georeferencing and combination of different point cloud data are included.
With PointCab, you can transfer required data to your software without the need of any plugins. You generate plans and sectional views, or you filter the desired areas of the point cloud or single 3D points and transfer them as DWG, XYZ, LAS or RCP file to your CAD software.
Autodesk Revit is a CAD system with BIM capability from the first concept up to completion of construction; the 2014 version enables the display of point clouds to model existing buildings.
As navigating and modeling in point clouds is time-consuming and complex, PointCab 4Revit is a solution that was developed to support efficient and simple 3D modeling with point clouds and Revit.
PointCab 4BIMm can be used to evaluate point clouds easily, quickly, and efficiently in ARCHICAD and to create building models.
As the import option for point clouds in ARCHICAD 19 only supports a limited point cloud size of a few hundred million points and navigating and modeling with point clouds are difficult, PointCab 4BIMm provides a solution that can also be used to evaluate very large point cloud projects efficiently.
With the FARO Scene Apps, PointCab provides a number of tools to extend and simplify Scene functionality.
These include importing the registration from PointCab into a Faro Scene project, simple and highly precise georeferencing, and a globally optimized equalization of the target-based registration in FARO Scene with a detailed log.
Subsequent georeferencing via known geodetic points in a known global coordinate system is difficult in SCENE.
Using our plugin as part of FARO Scene apps, this job can be realized with minimum effort.
Globally optimal adjustment of deviations in FARO Scene registration.
Alternatively, you can register directly in PointCab Suite (without use of SCENE) without the need for error correction. PointCab Registration >
