The surface inspection of cylindrical objects such as towers, columns or tanks for liquids is very simple with the Unfold tool.
The use of intensity or color makes it easier to interpret smooth surfaces.
Moreover, the deviations from the cylindrical surface are documented in the PDF log to stress unevenness.
You will learn how it works in our step-by-step instructions.
Easily unfold and analyze cylindrical objects.
Due to PointCab Unfold Module, you can easily unfold cylindrical objects straight from your point cloud as well as analyze and record deviations. You find easy and short tutorials in our Unfold Module tutorial section.
- Activate Unfold tool
- Define Unfold area
- Process Unfold job
DONE! – Visualizations in PointCab and PDF report are provided directly.
True-to-scale unfolds as 2D plans
Unfold simple cylindrical objects and convert them into in 2D plans. This is how you make even complex shapes usable.
Use the true-to-scale plans in your CAD solution by means of the DWG and DXF interface.
Unfold and deformation analysis at one go
For each unfold, a deformation analysis is also carried out automatically alongside the 2D plan.
You immediately recognize unevenness in the cylinder surface and are provided with a statistical analysis of the deviations.
Use results straight in your CAD system
Use the results of PointCab Unfold straight as a DWG or DXF file in your CAD system. Thus, textures, dimensions and structures can be used as a basis for modeling and planning.
